    I haven't seen any in at least a couple of months, and I always keep an eye out for it when I spot Southern Star beers.

    Don't know if this has been covered, but who is the "AM" part of this beer that made this awesome recipe. Apparently the guy is a genius! Would like to know his story.

    it's hardly even outside of downtown.

    that's pretty much the only area of town to score the more limited stuff. Midtown/Downtown/Smith St Specs (all one place) and D&Q.

    yeah, but driving to the other side of downtown is much further than driving to like 1960 or beltway. i just get jealous of all the selection SW and West side oh houston has and dont have to drive to downtown. :mad:

    The bad news? Saturday might be rainy for the anniversary party. The good news? We have aquired the warehouse next door, and there will be plenty of (dry) room to party! Come celebrate our 5th year in business and our most recent expansion with us this Saturday! There are still tickets left, but they are going pretty fast.

    Damn, hopefully Black Crack isn't going to be as difficult as WBDPP was.

    512 WBDPP wasn't really that hard... Abyss 2012, BB Gingerbread and BA Bigfoot were all harder personally.

    I just want a date at this point but with all this trading I've been doing as of late - I need to slow the hell down lol

    I agree on Abyss and ESPECIALLY BA Bigfoot. WBDPP I consider difficult just because it was scattered out on the release. And being in Waco, I have to make sure some will still be wherever I go by the time I get there.

    lol it is, anytime I have to go further south than 51st street, it's "south of the river" to me. Traffic's just as bad whether it's on the north or south bank ;)
