    Or call out to Bee Caves (Specs or Twin), because things last a good bit longer out there

    I just left the downtown/midtown/Smith street Spec's with the last bottle of Das Überkind! They had plenty of OG Wytchmaker (that's weird, right?) and they just put on the shelf some (off-topic) 2013 Boulevard Rye-on-Rye.

    Yup, I meant Twin Liquors, but somehow had Total Wine on my mind (from another thread). D'oh! :confused:

    Only the Midtown Specs gets special JK releases. They neglect the outlying stores completely.

    My girlfriend says I'm easily excited, lol.

    My other bottles were from Stanley's @ The Brewery, which might be why they only have gold caps. Who knows.

    During our Das Uberkind bottling day (10/17/12), we ran out of the plain gold caps and switched over to the new ones. It's the same beer, but some of the batch has the plain gold caps and some has the new caps.

    Ended up finding Uberkind at Central market on westheimer/weslayan had 4 cases sitting on the floor as of Noon today. Grabbed two bottles to split with my family while I'm home! Also had commercial suicide and some others on the floor, no funk metal though. Found a ton of OG black metal at specs over on Richmond west of 610 too.

    No offense, but since your name has been turned into a verb and is synonymous with hording, I can't help but chuckle.
