    Nevermind, evidently they have their own instagram and it's on there. Just look up jesterkingbeer. I'm on my phone so I can't save the picture and repost.

    Try using a dubbel, quad, or BSDA instead. So good....

    I guess the crazy German Genius kid cut his chest open and replaced the heart with a raspberry.

    I'm pretty sure there's some spaghetti in that drawing. We're at ground-zero of a new revolution in brewing.

    I had RU-55 once, followed shortly by Scots Gone Wild. Dude, it wasn't even close as to which I liked better.

    Now Das Uberkind, that is another story.

    Are Salt Lick bottles available at Stanleys yet? I havent been in a while, and was wondering if anyone has bought one there yet.

    I know Whiskey is pretty much only available via trade now, and I traded my last bottle away, but is there any Weasel sitting on shelves anywhere? I'm putting together a box for a guy and he'd love to try one of those 2.

    Also, any sightings of RU-55 and either of the Das in Austin lately. Central Market? Whole Foods? Bastrop (John?) Do I need to make a run out to Bee Cave?

    I meant to grab another Weaesel and missed out. I'd say its been 4 months since I've seen it.

    So is Funk Metal actually a limited release or will it stick around? Always unsure whether to stock up when I see it or just grab a few to enjoy. Even if it isn't a limited release it is pretty tough to find so I usually lean towards grabbing a few cause its so dang tasty!

    Edit: This should be fine in the cellar for a while correct?

    Sooooo available year round but only brewed every now and then? Just a bit confused what exactly rotating means. Sorry if its a dumb question just want to make sure I interpret "rotating" correctly....

    I believe Jeff said they had it to where there should be batches coming out every three months or so.

    Thanks. It's a limited release beer, but it's one we're always trying to make more of with the hope that it will be a year-round beer as time passes and we hopefully add more temperature controlled space for oak fermentation. I think Funk Metal is fine to cellar.

    lol, I think its funny... how did TABC know it was the restaurant? why can't it be named after the thing that horses and cows actually lick? Censor the story, not the front label. IMO.

    How does Thirsty Planet get approval for kegs of Franklin BBQ Smoked Porter then? Different rule for kegs and bottles?

    Oh, and Viking Metal tomorrow night at ye olde Draught House, according to JK's twitter. I'll stop by for a try.

    I don't think you need to have label approval for kegs. Which explains how kegs of Salt Lick have already been tapped around town.

    When you check the TABC web site, they always show label approvals for plenty of stuff thats keg only, so it seems like it has to go through them as well. I dont understand this system nearly well enough....

    Maybe because kegs don't have a graphic label on them.

    The work-around might be that the Thirsty Planet beer, on its TABC documents, is just called "Franklins Smoked Porter" and not specifically Franklin BBQ. JK says the issue is with

    "a malt beverage bearing the name or trademark of a Texas retail licensee"

    But what about Buddha's Brew? Im not from Texas, but isnt that a retail licensee?
