    Amen brother!

    I'm glad this isn't true though, can you imagine how horrible it would be to get Houston's best pumpkin brews that day?!

    Although I would love to see some sort of Houston Pumpkin festival where all the breweries come together and display their version of a pumpkin beer! One can only dream though....

    While I know it's difficult to detect sarcasm over the internet, you're saying this was sarcastic?

    "That's freaking stupid! Delay the release of KP, at Specs anyway, just to create even more of a frenzy! Dumbass's!!!! Besides the only way to create a "battle" would be to only allow customers to buy one or the other. "

    If so, I'd hate to see what it looks like when you're pissed off for real.

    Wasn't really pissed off. Just a load of drama that's all. Been working to much.

    I have only heard one person say that, and that was in this thread. I don't think anything has been delayed.

    My mistake. I must of not seen it. Here is their reply.

    "No delay. We are bottling it tomorrow and shipping out Friday. Should hit stores/bars on Monday."

    It's a good think I'm off on Monday!

    Big boxes of course but they wouldn't be specefic about the smaller stores. And, they didn't give any names.

    95% is going to Specs locations and HEB's. Hell, I think D&Q is only getting a case (seriously).

    When I talked to a Karbach guy at Specs a while back they told me Specs on smith was getting like a case or two more than everywhere else, he said the stores that push them the most would get most of them and he went to say Heb, Central Market and Whole Foods. So you guys should be able to pick some up at Whole Foods and Heb if you can't make it to smith before its gone. I'm probably going to HEB montrose after work and I'm sure ill find.

    If there was a sign posted by it I would of more than glad only gotton 2. No signage at all. Not even a price sign. Just unmarked boxes with the Krunkin Punkin logo in black on the front. Only cases stacked up on top of each other. 2 are for me and 2 are for others. I walked all over the beer department as well for 15 minutes and I only ran into the BEK rep. Nice lady btw.

    BeanBone Oct 12, 2006 Texas

    There was a highly visible sign when I was there at 10:30a that also had the price on it.

    I mean, if you didn't see it, you didn't see it. It is what it is. Maybe it fell down?
     
  34. icetrauma

    icetrauma Sep 7, 2004 Texas

    No I didn't see it. The boxes were stacked up in the main aisle at the end of row closest to the coolers. If I offended any one, then I'm sorry.

    No hard feelings with me, man. If you say you didn't see it, I have to give you the benefit of the doubt there.

    I was out in Katy, for business reasons, and the store off of Mason didn't have any in. Said later on this week but they did have BB XXIV, Bitches Brew, with a sign stating 1 bottle limit and Positive Contact.

    On Twitter this morning the beer dept. said:
    Sounds like maybe just Smith Street today for this one?
     
  39. icetrauma

    icetrauma Sep 7, 2004 Texas

    To put this limit to rest, will there be a limit on Pumpkinator? Because last time Igot 4 bottles and Lindsey, you gave me the box with the 4 bottles in it.
