    Sculpin, Deviant, 75 in 1 day. Not too shabby

    I think you meant to say you love Ballast Point, Dogfish Head and Oskar Blues. I dont understand why TABC keeps getting blamed for good or bad things. They enforce laws, they don't bring beer into the state or put it on shelves. Ben E Keith and Andrews Distributing should get the credit for that.

    All credit goes to the breweries for navigating their product thru the morass to get it on our shelves

    Is Ballast Point only being distributed to DFW?

    Yes for now but they have plans to get this to the rest of the state sometime this year. I can't wait to stop and get some Deviant Dales, Sculpin, and Big Eye tonight on my way home.

    I know Lonestar has Sculpin today. Any other stores have it? Need beer and trying to figure out where to go.

    Extremely doubtful they will last that long, unless they got multiple kegs.

    Just picked up a sixer of sculpin and big eye at Lonestar. The sculpin hurt the wallet at 16.99. Got home and the the best by date is 7/19/12 and I believe that means it was bottled jan 19. Hoping For the best

    I'm wondering the same thing... maybe I should just go check out Lonestar.

    Just got back from Lonestar and they have stacks of Ballast Point in six pack and bomber form. Mr. G's did not have any. They said Deviant Dales will be here by the end of the week.
