    Not gonna ruffle my feathers on that one....I tend to agree...I'd throw Coors Light and Bud Light in there as well. I just figured I'd pass along info for those looking to try GI beer that haven't and 312 is a fairly inoffensive, albeit bland offering from them.

    Your point? You think they wouldn't look at getting a higher profit margin off a beer with a high product and retail cost? :rolleyes:

    Went to The Friendly Spot in San Antonio last night and had a Sophie & a Pere Jacques. I saw they also had their Mild Winter and IPA as well.

    The 711s in Austin should have 312 readily available according to Brown. Not sure which ones nor do I care to really look, but apparently it's the first bottles that will be sold in TX

    Actually, 312 comes in both....6 and 12 pack bottles, 12 pack cans, and even 22 oz bombers according to their website.

    Are they no longer making Matilda in 6-packs? It was such a great value that way. I can't imagine those 750's are cheap.

    Can't wait till I show the dude with Dreds at Spec's on Smith. I was in there back in December - I saw Goose Island sodas so I asked if the Beer was in yet - Dude gave me a crazy look and said "We don't sell that in Texas"

    I told him about them coming soon he then yelled at me "We will NEVER sell Goose Island in Texas, PERIOD"

    I had to step away slowly... lol

    Wow I've never seen that before. I just picked up some Matilda in KY in September, and it definitely didn't look like that.

    Just stopped in. They said they will have the full line up. No BCBS. The truck just backed up so I'm gonna get lunch and head back in 2 hrs or so. They also had shipyard.

    I feel compelled to once again state my opinion that Pepe Nero is in fact disgusting and a waste of money. Complete lack of flavor.
