    I took this from the release party yesterday. The 15' BBT is drinking mighty fine!

    What a fantastic event that Lakewood hosted! The BBT is fantastic this year! I can't wait to pick up a few bottles, cellar them and see how '15 BBT tastes in '16 and '17 and '18....

    Thank you Lakewood

    Disappointed that I missed the release party. But I was in San Diego and had some great beer.

    Anyone have good word on when the bottles will be released? Seems like it was later in the week last year. Also, we should see some kegs pop up around town. But I am not seeing anything yet. Anxious to try this year's version.

    **Edit... I see Whole Foods Lakewood will release tomorrow.

    Thank you Shashi, was able to get one. Hoping to pick up a couple more today or tomorrow if they are available. I don't really want to stand in line for an hour like I did last year.

    Ugh, what a beating, but I'm the same way, no lines the better. Annually this is one that I really enjoy, and actually the first year I didn't attend the tasting party at the brewery- so like you I'm ISO big time. I'll keep my nose to the ground post periodically on here as I see things pop up- I haven't heard of it around anywhere else though for today... but who knows about these things.

    I managed to pick up four bottles on Monday. I think that's all I'll need.

    Your impressions on this years batch?

    I thought this year's batch is a delicious as always when I had it on tap over the weekend. However, I have not been able to attend any of the events where you could taste a vertical.

    Was in Dallas over Xmas and couldn't find any. It was gone at both Spec's Walnut Hill & Colony as well as the Total Wines off Park Ln and Preston/121; called a few other places and everyone I talked to said it disappeared within hours.

    FWIW, I also spoke to some guys who weren't really impressed with the beer (i.e. it was good, but may not be worth an extended chase or giving up a bunch for)

    Barrel Aged Legion on the other hand should still be easily attainable. Both Spec's I mentioned and Total Wine Preston/121 should have it by the case with no limit. Total Wine Park Ln had it at 1 4-pack per on the 23rd (I'm guessing they were down to their last case).

    If anyone is interested, I just left Haystack over by the Richardson Alamo Drafthouse and they have it on tap. $8.75 for a 13oz pour. I pulled the trigger since I missed the release and have had zero luck finding bottles.

    Would say that it is very well done with some strong bourbon notes. I don't expect to find a bottle at this point, so I'll probably have it on tap whenever I stumble across it.

    Those folks at Haystack are awesome. Get a burger and try the BBT, it is damn good.

    Just came across several bottles @ The Green Spot -- East side of White Rock Lake. They've got about 5 left.

    Cool little convenience store if you've never been. Stopped in for some tacos and had to do a double take when i saw the bottles of BBT.
