    You'll be very happy with the Prairie Ale. It's one of those saisons you could literally sit and drink on all day.

    Drinking Standard right now.

    Just outstanding in every way and come on, $9 a sixer. Enjoying my glass with high end meats and cheeses.

    Chilling the Prairie Noir for today. Very excited to try this one based on Wills description.

    Noir is very nice. All the flavors (whiskey, oats, vanilla, coconut, chocolate...so much going on) mesh together for a silky smooth beer. Insane price point..I mean off the charts considering the packaging. Carb is a little low on the pour but there are bubbles on the glass with every sip.

    Might be the best cost to quality ratio for a BA beer out there (I could have bought ~2 for every Whiskey Rodeo).

    Perfect snow day brew and I'm very happy to try this. Can't thank Will enough for the leg work on this.

    What's everyone else drinking today on the DF dub?

    Speaking of which... Fern, what are your hours? I swear I've been in the store about 4 times this month, maybe twice around the time you're normaly there, and you're never there. I'm starting to worry, man... you still work there, or did they give you new hours?

    puddledynamics Apr 29, 2009 Texas

    I work 6am-2ish pm M-F, so I'm only really there for 4hours with customers. The Holidays are crazy though, I've worked most Saturdays since thanksgiving 7am-2 or 3pm. Day before big holidays I'm there 6am-9pm...My schedule doesn't change most of the time and when it does it's longer hours never shorter. I'm also on call all the time so I show up randomly through out the week.

    If someone wants to be a saint and secure a Victory at Sea for me I'd be a happy camper. Stuck on a ski trip (I use the word stuck loosely ;) )

    Fern, I recall Lonestar being one of the first to get Lakewood. It was well before Christmas if I remember correctly.

    What's the closest location to FW that has Sucks right now? total wine in Dallas?

    I want this sexiness to explode all in my mouth during the games today but damn that's a drive.

    Went by there yesterday to check on Victory at Sea, Abyss, and Sucks. No go in DFW yet.

    Next Friday the FW Saucers rare tapping will be BA Dogfather I am told.

    Total Wine Dallas has (or had as of yesterday, I'm guessing they still have some) Victory at Sea and Sucks. No Abyss though.

    i just called total wine dallas and they said they have 25 CASES. at first i thought no, that has to be 25 bottles. and the guy said he put eyes on the cases. i was going to have them hold a bottle or two and have a friend pick it up (i live in austin). no need to worry about that.

    Cracked one of my bottles of Victory at Sea tonight and it's freaking amazing. Might be worth the drive to Dallas to get some more. I don't think that the lone bottle I have left isn't gonna cut it.

    I got mine from Lonestar on Saturday just because I was in the area. (I was the guy in the Bruery hoodie) Really cool spot...something missing from the FW scene.

    Great beer. I little much on the coffee notes...it distracted me a bit
