    Where do kegs end up in Houston? I can't remember the last time I saw JK on draft.

    Mongoose often has kegs of interesting stuff. They had Censored recently. Also Hay Merchant occasionally has LPP and I think I saw LPP at D&T once too.

    HM, MvC, and Petrol get Jester King. I'm sure there is more than that.

    MvC had Cask Das Wunderkind the other night.

    Side note, almost every beer at MvC tastes way past it's prime (Hopsickle malt bomb) or like they have dirty lines (4 Squared).

    Could be a bad experience, but my friend's beers were all odd tasting as well. I hope so because A. They are less than a mile from my place B. Are a beer bar.

    That's surprising to me. What beers did you get? I know they take good care of their lines (I've been in the back before to check out their system) and I also know they tend to only sit on kegs that are reasonable to sit on...

    He got the Das Wunderkind and IP8.

    Those I could see being off honestly.

    The Hopsickle was a malty mess (tasted like it was 8+ months old) and the 4 Squared was worse than 6 month old cans I've had.

    I'm hoping it was a one time thing because it was one of the worst "Beer" bar experiences I've had.

    Yes. Nothing should change in regard to draft distribution in Houston, aside from the fact that it has already decreased over the last several months.

    I've had Das Wunderkind on cask at HM and have seen black Metal there as well. It's been a long time but they appear occasionally.

    Has anyone tried 5 Stones? I'm guessing it has to be good if JK is gonna sell it, right?

    If anyone isn't buying their allocation of Atrial please let me know because I want it!

    I'll jump on this though I didn't want to. I'd appreciate people letting me know if you're not going to buy 'your' Atrial. I would like to attempt to bring it to a tasting in CA this December. I promise I will not open a bottle of Atrial B2 with fewer than 3 other people to enjoy it (and can show picture proof if you want it).
    Thanks.
    P.S. The Wunderkind (4/2013) was more wild-like than any I've had before.

    Just had some fresh Wunderkind earlier this week, and it was more wild-like, and was tasting Wunderful.

    Really? When I've had fresh wunderkind it's sweeter and a bit thicker. More saisony like.

    Had some Tuesday at the brewery, and yes I don't ever remember it tasting that good, was definitely a bit more sour than I remember.

    Alright, I'm going to give this one last shot.
    Does anyone have an extra bottle ticket they'd be willing to trade/sell? I could offer up an Atrial plus some others.

    BM me!

    That's very sad to me. I love Mongoose and frequent it often. I haven't had such experiences.

    Just wanted to say screw everyone going tomorrow. I hope you have a horrible time. I am having my Funk day today in protest. Had an Atrial, Sumpin Wild, and now Lolita. While not as good as Atrial, the price per ounce plus the fact that I can go grab 10 bottles of Lolita right now makes it a nice substitute for when my Atrial supply runs out. #Superjealous

    I guess that commences tomorrow.

    I had trouble sleeping I'm so excited. I'll be on my way down from Dallas pretty soon. Allowing time for breakfast at what I'm sure will be a crowded Czech Stop. The weather won't bother me! My iPhone says that the rain is gonna stop by 8am, partly cloudy the rest of the day. We'll see.
