    Utopias has come to the store(Hall's), we aren't selling any untill December. I've been getting alot of questions about it I figure I'd post about it here. I will probably get banned but whatever, sounds like the guys who run this joint don't drinking enough beer to chill the fuck out anyways.
    Cheers folks!

    In Fort Worth!

    And I don't see why you'd get banned. I see other stores posting about what beer they have in. Unless I'm missing something anyway.

    Better than DFH's Pumpkin. Less than Fat Jack but with better pumpkin flavor whereas Fat Jack nailed the spices. Cool orange bottle to boot for those collecting.

    Going to send the lady by Whole Foods tommorow to spec for JK.

    If anyone is up for the drive I left 3-4 '11 Rahr BBWW's at the Majestic in Granbury.

    Welcome back!

    I took a break as well since stores couldn't post new releases. I figured it was ok again (since several others are doing it as well). Let's hope I'm right.

    As long as we avoid prices and keep it to regional info about releases I hope they continue to permit this type of thread.

    I'd very much like people to spot special taps around town...I'm for driving for a pint or two if I know whats to be had

    Lonestar says they have the Double per facebook/twitter...didn't see anything in NE Tarrant though at lunch -- but got plenty for this week (Das, Narwhal, Smoked Porter, Rougue Double Chocolate, etc). The Bastards will be on my list for next week.

    I got two bottles from CM Ft. Worth on Saturday, picked them up on the way to Azle for a wedding. Did they still have some when you went today?

    Somehow i missed that in the cluster-f that has become that thread. Well Whole Foods could technically do this right?

    So is that a firm no for DFW take home?

    I'm sure somewhere could do this in DFW. I haven't seen a WF that did this but I haven't paid the best attention either. I believe Flying Saucer Addison doesnt serve liquor so they technically could but the price, which is already steep, would be retarded.

    Lots of places in Houston are selling Bishop's as a take-home. Depends on if they have a liquor license or not, I think.

    The saucer technically could sell it as a walk out. They have the license to sell a closed container to consume off premise.

    It just got released in Houston. Looking for it up here in DFW is a little preemptive at this point. Give it a few days and check with The Saucer.

    Exactly this. We got DR12 and Pumpkinator on the same day as Houston.
    Really I see fresh Endeavour on the shelf within 2 days of the born on day.

    Any word on Mint Choc?
