    I thought this was about the set price for BA beers? Just curious what people thought it was going to cost?

    True. But, if you age it, they will buy.

    I'm okay with the $14 price tag, but hope BA Hellfighter doesn't go above that price.

    Also: 12oz bottles of BA Hellfighter? Please? Pleasssseee?

    I picked up two and saw quite a few people (maybe around 10?) there that were also buying their 2. In my opinion, I don't see this lasting long at Specs Midtown.

    Lol you guys are never going to drop it. I'd pick up my usual allotment but I'm waiting a few weeks for hellfighter lol

    How many cases were on the floor overall?
     
  19. wsnich

    wsnich Apr 26, 2010 Texas

    Didn't count, but someone just tweeted saying 8 cases were left. I don't remember seeing that many, though. There was another beer right beside it, so he may have confused those cases for Bodacious.

    I'm just happy my cubicle doesn't have a lock on it and I can run out for a second. Also, it has a window.

    HEB Buffalo Speedway might still have some. I was in earlier with some friends but they didn't have it yet. He offered to set aside 2 each for us when it came in. After I found it elsewhere, I called him back and he said they were in and he was holding the 6, but I told him he could sell them. So they likely got it sometime between 11-1. Not sure how much or if they still have it.
