    Wow I'm impressed they got some.

    Also Fat Bao is legit! Been there a couple of times and have always enjoyed the tasty dishes.

    They will be getting all Houston special release beers. Can get other Texas/US special releases, but I told them to stick with local at least for now. Distributor price on 006 was high, otherwise price would be lower. They're making less than 100% profit when the normal margin on beer is 300%+

    Still have a couple bottles of each if anyone is still looking. No ramen though.

    Yes, that Kroger

    It wouldn't be Matt Chows garage, but his own warehouse.

    Is that selling out quickly? I loved that stuff. Reminded me of a lighter bodied Pliny.

    Is that 006 at my Kroger??!!?? damn it to hell... do I have time to go to the gym on the way home, or are all of you going to gather this up before I can get to it?

    8 cases on the floor. I'd say you have time. Either way your motivation at the gym is shot, so you minus well skip.

    damn... it's not like rosendo to (1) not answer my email and (2) put out 8 cases of the stuff at once... I wonder what's up with that...

    I will be there tonight either way :)

    He was out of town when it was released. Responded to me a few days ago, about a week too late. They still have a ton because they had it unadvertised behind the customer service desk with a 1 bottle limit. When I asked how much they had left he wouldn't tell me cause it was a secret............................"your kidding right?". Nope.

    Including very angry beast, which does not ring up for some reason so they sold it to me for $6.99. YMMV lol.

    Btw 'rosendo' may not work there any more. The checker said things have been in disarray since the section manager quit a couple of weeks ago.

    thanks for the info....

    picked up 3 more bottles and a bottle of double double jack at around 7 pm.... there were still almost 6 cases there with no limit at the register when I asked. If anyone needs a hook up, it's the place to go!

    Interesting. I, or my wife, shop here maybe twice a week as this is our local. I have not seen Rosendo in some time and the beer/wine section does not seem up to the usual very high standard, though it is still excellent for a neighborhood store.

    BH is probably the best you are going to do for a Texas stout right now. I actually had this the other day on nitro for the first time and it was amazing.

    I will admit. There is alot more CoF floating around then I thought there would be. Def not a bad thing.

    Rosendo took 2 weeks off cause he was having chest pains, etc. He's cool now, Picked up my Sucabas from him yesterday. I didn't know so many of us here knew him and James lol

    006 got put out like that because there is a new regional beer distributor in the area (another buddy of mine actually), He's going around cleaning out stashes that stores have in the back like gangbusters. While Rosendo was out he's the one that threw all the 006 in the front like that - For the record all that shit is LONG gone now.

    The ultra ghetto HEB on 18th was sitting on a case of DR12 randomly....keyword: was lol
