    It really is a great beer bar. Maharaja, 120 Min, Mephestophelies, Live Oak Liberation, Suclpin and Noble Rot were all on tap this past week. They serve growlers and they also have some damn good sweet rolls.

    Grabbed a bottle at Whole Foods Lamar today. Was the only bottle there, sitting on the bottom shelf of a trolley cart in the cold beer room.

    One bottle left at Hyde Park Market with the usual price gouge ($19.99)...

    I secured a bottle of this today as well and I'm pretty damn excited about it. Since I haven't had it before I didn't mind paying the $19.99. I'd like to get 1 more to age, but not for the same price.

    It was at Live Oak Market on Friday. I think they received one case. It might still be there, as the $18 price kept me from picking one up. It was behind the counter.

    If anyone in Houston finds this and can get me one, I'd be grateful. I'm going to be out of pocket for a few days.

    Operation disinformation begins. We already have a confirmation from a store owner that he will recieve this. In Fern We Trust should be printed on the side of every beer bottle sold from Halls :)

    Also did you speak to a rep from the distributor or Sierra Nevada itself?

    You heard wrong. Overpriced and nothing special. Nobi and Boondoggles are Clear Lakes 2 hot spots. Every now and again Bakkhus and Monkey bar have some good beer.

    I can confirm that this is starting to trickle out in Houston. Sorry to say that if you don't know someone its going to be hard to track down.

    Unfortunately those guys know absolutely nothing about their beer until its loaded on the truck. These distributors work like little terrorist cells or drug cartels as far as information is concerned. The underlings are either given no info or bad info until the last possible second.

    Well that's a first... I've never been told "make sure no one sees this" when buying a beer.

    Specs didn't even get any in, so it will be hard to get unless you know someone but it has landed in Houston.

    Spec's is receiving 4 cases, and there will be a few other accounts with single cases starting tomorrow. HEB Bunker, Whole Foods, etc...

    We might have been there around the same time. The Ben E Keith dude? I thought about asking him but since I saw the Fern talk about late this month I didn't. Picked up a Funk Metal though so I'm good.

    Really? I went to Midtown Spec's on Monday at lunch and was told it was coming and they didn't know when. I also called twice yesterday and was told they hadn't gotten it yet.

    The misinformation around this beer in Houston is driving me crazy.

    Does this mean Hay Merchant is selling it? I was there yesterday and nothing about it was mentioned to me.

    Glad I got my 4 bottles elsewhere, dang beer in TX is just getting impossible to get for those who don't drive for hours mid day. First Dissident and Abyss, now this.

    It's looking like Monday. I was hoping for Friday , but it seems to be a couple of days after I post when, is when stuff shows up.

    I just called again and asked if they had it. Was told no. I asked if they got it earlier this week and he told me they haven't gotten any yet.
