    Supposedly next week they told me. I know that it hit Dallas today.

    Only getting a case, which is considerably less than last year. : (

    I'll be out hunting for personal consumption myself!

    Arghhhh this damn beer chasing gig I've gotten myself into is causing tons of frustration...and apparently also caused me to type like a pirate.

    Where is Dallas is this? BM is ok, I'm tempted to drive out tonight to secure a bottle or two.

    Edit: scratch that. $3 half pints of Endeavour and cheap RU-55 (25% off bomber) at Live Oak.

    Lol, has it been confirmed in Dallas yet? I did say Tarrant was off limits. Either way, I'll call it a tie and split one with you :)

    Ill make the rounds at lunch for the Fort Worth folk but I suspect that some may get it this morning, some in the afternoon, and maybe Monday.

    Anybody have a chance to swing by Whole Foods Arlington today?

    I'll check Whole Foods after work, but I do expect that Kye will send an email today - he usually does on Friday.

    I logged on this site too late today! Looks like no Abyss for me again this year. I was counting on Halls and Whole Foods coming through with multiple cases since I work in North Arlington and both stores are a short drive from the office. I now need to convince myself that Abyss is vastly overrated and I saved money.

    I've been thinking the same thing for about a year now, I just didn't want to start a shit storm. I realize its a highly regarded beer but I'm not wasting my time with it. If I happen to get lucky and find a few for a couple trading partners then great otherwise I could care less, more for everyone else. I'd honestly rather chase down Boxers.

    Really? That 4(or was it 5?) year Abyss vertical we had at your place somewhat contradicts your statement. I remember it being one of the highlights of the night... shit storm started. :)

    *1 bottle limit, so it should be there a good minute(literally a minute).

    I knew you guys would enjoy it more than just myself, that's the main reason I opened it. You never heard me raving how good it was. For the record, I did enjoy the '08 the most but regardless, I'm glad to have shared it and hope you guys enjoyed it more than myself.

    There were several other highlights that night that stood out more. Us beating those other two chumps in pool being tops :)

    And now they're all gone (or accounted for). Got mine...raffy, if not for you, I wouldn't have gotten a call in. You, sir, are greatness!

    Funny, while there, I heard them say, "Kye, line ...." 3 times.

    I ended up going to Whole Foods to get some lunch and to verify personally that WF was not getting any Abyss. As I walked into the beer area, the BEK guy was stocking the shelves. I asked him if it was true that this Whole Foods store was not getting any Abyss. He looked at me with a grin and said, "nope..and they still have some left in back". Kye came out with a bottle for me. That was at about 12:45 p.m. I was told they had 3 bottles left out of a total of two cases that they received.

    Guess I spoke too soon - feel free to shitstorm me, Brad. ;) However, there's still a limit to my beer chasing. Willing to leave work in the middle of the day? No. Willing to call a store & pick up later? Yes.

    King's(FW)... GO!!!

    Beer guy just texted me that it's in. He said he had one set aside for me but since I've been taken care of at another store... I let it go to some other more needy BA. :) Go get 'em guys!

    .
    Glad I could help out, Krumb.

    Total in FW tells me they'll get a case of abyss Tuesday. She also said she was setting bottles aside for people who call ahead.

    Oh I bet (no B5 sorry) Dallas got more. Only 5 confirmed cases (Halls, Kings, Specs on Hulen, Total, CM) so far for take home. I bet the big Specs on Bryant Irving got one so that's 6. Add Flying Saucer, World of Beer, and maybeee GMan (although it would surprise me if they did) thats 8-9. Oh yeah Whole Foods... So 9-10.

    Beginning to regret those I drank already, randomly picked up here and there across the country in the last few months. Figured it would be like last year and have plenty of time in tx to pick up like 6. Oops.
