    In many ways... it's the Tupac of beer.

    You hear it has died, never to return... yet every once in a while a few new cases show up.

    They are secretly producing it en masse.

    Is OG Black Metal supposed to be hard to find? I never have issues finding bottles.

    Well, considering they "stopped" making it over a year ago, and after the farmhouse not being as good people bought up all the OG. So we thought...

    Yeah, I bought a case when they announced the switch, yet still have no trouble finding dusty bottles.

    Do they not bottle Bonnie anymore? I see it on like every Saturday tap listing, never at shops.

    When I was in at the anniversary party, I saw a whole palate of the bottles.

    People are more clever here I guess, 'cause there's fuck all in Austin.

    They actually have poured it from bottles whenever I've had it at the brewery.

    LOL. It sat at Spec's Brodie for like 8 months near the front door.

    I'm guessing they sent all that beer... sunkissed with love and passionate heat *mwah!* to Houston after all the Austin people decided not to buy it. :slight_smile:

    Awesome. Looking forward to it! I guess it wouldn't be rare if you bottled it all the time.

    To further my post everyone I talked to was super cool and friendly. The beers I got to try were all amazing. Pizza was good too and was happy to try a pint of funk metal which I'd love a bottle of if anyone knows where some is still sitting. Picked up an el Cedro and ru-55 to share with friends back home. Also guy in the tap room made fun of my non beer drinking friend for pronouncing Brettanomyces wrong which gave me a chuckle. He had never had a sour beer before and seemed to enjoy them. Will definitely make this something I try to do every time I'm back.

    As far as the funk metal goes, give the HEB on Lakeline a shot. Saw 6 bombers sitting as of Thursday.

    Currently enjoying a convict hill oatmeal stout. Everything I've had from Texas so far has been pretty solid. Lots of good stuff going on here.

    How many oz is a Teku?
     
  35. Lutter

    Lutter Initiate (0) Jun 30, 2010 Texas

    My Deschutes Teku will fit a 12oz bottle with room to spare for head. They're probably around 14oz to the brim.

    Is this true? I still have a bottle of it and I'm afraid it's no bueno.
