Damn, my aunts not working today... Hope there is some left tomorrow
Should be ok..I saw 7-8 on the shelf. HEB Burleson should get a case as well
Went back to D&Q today, still no sign of any Funk Metal......
The last Jester King that John recieved at HEB was Bonnie (several months ago). For some reason they just quit shipping him Jester King. He told me that he is tired of getting screwed by the distributor and might consider dropping all Jester King beers till they start sending him the limited releases again.
Is RU tart and sour or is there some funk in it as well?
yes my favorite one so far. not straight up acid tho, very complex and flavorful. it may change your mind about sours.
Agreed with RonBurgundy69 (Really? 69 at the end? I feel like a douche typing that). RU55 is a fantastic flanders red, tart (think lemons) yet there is a nice barrel characteristic that comes through. Great beer. Not funky like brett finished beer (no barnyard or horseblanket type flavors to me).
Thanks Jeff, I thought it was newer. You mentioned trying to make it year round before.
In response to the others about RU. I definitely do not get as much chemical finish on this in at all. Much better. Nice front with some tartness and a lot of cherry, but the finish just dissipates to nothing. Definitely see promise in this one. Due to the lower chemical finish, I would have to put it right up there as my favorite sour from jester king. No bretty funk here. Did we get an answer about the name? Anything to do with the morning after pill? Lol
Maybe I'm off, but if your talking about the ru-55 name, it's tribute they're brewing friend Russ
thats what they said in the blog post... i would assume the two 5's represent the letter S
Ahh... I get it.
Any sightings in San Antonio?
Looks like I might try this one out.
You dont say? Speaking for myself, the "69" is the year of my birth, but I could see how others might take it another way...
Does anyone know exactly how limited RU-55 is going to be? Looking to score a bottle of this and will be putting a ISO:FT post up but I thought I'd ask.
did you ask brandon? he had tons of it in the weeks prior.
yeah, he said for sure tomorrow...
Yeah dude, there was like 8 cases a few weeks back just sitting there.
You're thinking of "RU-18"
Looks like I'll be stopping by today after work...
Its ru486, mifepristone, or something like that. I was trying to be funny...
I did a research paper on RU486 long before it was legal to have a day after pill. That was in 1994 or 1995. lol
That was when we lost our area rep...yea it probably shouldn't be incumbent on HEB to create a new relationship with her I bet it's just a miscommunication that would be solved with a phone call. I know few distributors in DFW silly enough to ignore an HEB, even one in Burleson, given the expected growth in our market in the next 2-3 years (READon't bite the hand that feeds you)
RU 55 at d and q now!
I called him. 2 bottle limit per person.
Number of cases there?
Sweet, I might actually have a chance at getting some during my lunch break
South Lamar Wine & Spirits just posted that they have it
Sunrise just tweeted it being in
I just picked up my two bottles of RU-55 from D&Q. I also got some more Funk Metal although I only saw one case and it was going fast. I might be wrong but I'm guessing it's not from the new batch because it didn't have the new bottle caps.
On my way there right now!!!!
Picked up RU-55 and Funk Metal from D&Q! Got the last bottle of Funk me thinks!
I can't wait to open up one of these after work!
Also which one of you guys was hoarding the Sailing Santa when I was there? I know it was one of you guys!
D & Q, in and out. $16.99
So Brandon also had burgers!
200 Cases if I remember right, message me and we can work something out im sure
Brandon still had a bit when I was there
Guarantee he runs out today though
I tried to tweet him to hold me 2 RU-55s, but no response... :-/
Can always call the store. He's usually good about answering the phone...
