    How do I know if my bottle is the original black metal or the farmhouse black metal?

    I completely forgot that there used to be a separate sticker on the bottles for the brewery name.

    Thats the first thing I look for when I find a older store with a lot of Black Metal. I have fished an OG bottle out of a sea of Farmhouse bottles once. It was a great day.

    I think there are still several cases of OG Black Metal sitting by the front windows at Specs Brodie. They should be done cooking by now.....

    I saw a few bottles on the shelf at the Specs in Webster. They also have a few cans of Oskar Blues Gordon.

    I haven't seen 'em the last few times I've gone. I think they either got sold or distributed to other stores.

    When was this? I go in there at least once a week while I'm home and I never see any Black Metal.

    I'm glad I picked up a case before the Farmhouse BM was released.

    I'm still finding OG Black Metal at various Specs/HEBs in Houston. Guess I better stock up.
