    There's somewhere around that amount sitting in every store I believe (5-8 cases). Doesn't look to be as rare as I'd imagine.

    Guess Austin got most of this as well.

    I saw a ton of this at all 3 local bottle shops I visit in South Austin. $22.99 seems to be the popular price.

    Actually, CM on Preston just put out their only case, 19.99 each and no limit.

    CM Lovers says they will get theirs Tom, and already have a list going.

    Hope that helps!

    I just picked up 2 at CM on Preston. It looked like they had about 5 left.

    not rare, and too expensive for what you get. trade for 2 Bourbon Counties and it would be cheaper and better.

    Closer to $350 I think, but I haven't seen an invoice yet. Black Star will have it but I don't think I can talk about it without getting my post deleted.

    Yea bit of an exaggeration but still crazy expensive...I know draught house is sitting on a keg as well. I'm sure they'll tap it in the near future...

    Think there are still any out there in Houston? - I tried it at BRC and it was pretty damned good, Would like a bottle to split with friends.

    Guess I was the only one who didn't know this was a 500ml bottle. Ill pass for $20

    HoustonZ33 Sep 10, 2012 Texas

    WOAH - That's only 16.9oz - Not even a bomber and barely over a pint....now the $17.50 Pints at BRC (ontap) don't sound too bad - Fuck that.

    I always like to age BA Raspy. Can't do that with a pint. ;)

    Honestly, if it was $17.50, it was underpriced.

    I would strongly suggest sitting on this one for a while. Popped one the other day and it was scorching hot...super boozy.

    I cant believe they were doing pints. I would have suspected an 8-10oz snifter

    Nah man, said on the menu "$17.50 / Pint" - I now regret getting only a sample of it - Shit was damned good.

    I've got nothing useful to add except that I Found one in Plano, TX. I was scanning the isles for anything interesting while my sandwich was being made. They had evidently found this one bottle mis-stocked today, and they redisplayed it (according to cashier). Dumb luck - I was the first beer gnurd to scan the isle since then. "Thar she blows!"

    I got one in Brownsville TX last saturday for 19.99. Brownsville does not usually get much rare stuff, so there should be plenty of these around. Or maybe the price dissuades otherwise willing customers. I realized it was crazy expensive, but couldn't pass it up since I love regular Raspy. I guess I'll try it just once and hopefully not get hooked on it.

    I didn't like like Regular Raspy (vs. Narwhal, FIS) but, BA Old Raspy - Good Shit.

    Saw them as well earlier this week. Couldn't bring myself to buy any. Saved my money and got WBDPP instead.

    That's my kinda guy. I have three, shared another with a friend. Only one WBADPP; said friend has two. I did have the WBADPP on cask at Chicago House last night, and I had BAOR maybe 6-7 times at Draught House while they had it (along with Sucaba, on two occasions... good nights, those were).
