    Double the bottles, yet they will likely still be limit one and just as hard to find, b/c beer...

    Awesome to see, delicious beer. Can't wait for French quarter. I haven't chased beer in well over a year but that might change in about a week.

    Also $13 a bottle is a little ridiculous. That's almost 60 cents an ounce. The Prairie Bomb series is the only thing I'm willing to pay that much for.

    Well well good sir, I guess I will be outside your doors around 9:59am on Monday or whenever it comes in. Viva la Fern.

    No more ridiculous than JK beers, some St A's beers, Dark Lord, Darkness, etc. I'll pay $13 allllllllllll day long for that sweet nectar.

    I also happen to be quite find of raspberry stouts and they have the TX market by the balls in that category. It's delicious regardless but with no in state competition they won't have a problem selling it.

    I should amend that to "only thing I'm willing to pay that much for in Dallas." You cant even get hold of most of those other beers in Dallas so not a fair comparison. Lakewood is no Three Floyd's, St Arnold's or Jester King, at least not yet.

    I think the issue is that it is not barrel aged and coming in at that price. Most of the beers listed were barrel aged....

    But, I will still buy it because it is a good beer.

    I hope Houston gets some, it mentions distributing to North Texas but nowhere else?

    According to the brewery, North Texas (D/FW and surrounding areas) is the only place THEY are distributing the beer.

    Raspberry was really good on tap last year. Would love BA version.

    No they are not and I could care less about pedigree. I'll take French quarter Temptress over Dark Diabeetus any day. As far as a fair comparison, as I said, there are no fair comparisons in the state so they have a huge advantage if you want a delicious raspberry stout.

    Not sure if you were referring to the list I mentioned but most of them are not ba'd unless it's a special very limited version.

    I don't care what I spend on beer..as long as I can BS and share it with good folks. Beer is only as good as the company I keep.

    They had it on tap at the brewery over the summer. Phenomenal.

    I'm going to be in Dallas on Saturday, what are my chances of finding a couple bottles of this?

    I honestly think this will be sticking around a while (and by that I mean more than two days)...The main Specs told me they are getting so much they are putting it on display, and that is just one store...I would say chances are good (before seeing the crowds and mobs going after them lol)

    So, my wife will be in Dallas tomorrow for some nail-polish meetup thing....anyway she'll be grabbing beers for me. Anyone know of a bottle shop close to Max's Wine dive where she could find this? (I'll also take other suggestions on things not available in Austin if you want to PM. :-)

    Tasted the Raspberry temtress yesterday at Taps N Caps. It was ok. I prefer the BBT and Sin Mint. Definetely not worth $13 for a bomber.

    I wonder if a nice, reliable bottle shop in north Austin will be picking up some from the brewery.

    I found it to be very enjoyable and preferable to sin mint. Anyone in the McKinney/Plano area may want to check out The Pub in downtown McKinney. Lakewood had a promotion last night and they tapped Raspberry. Call ahead to make sure its still on.

    While you're at it, Mellow Mushroom has Sin Mint on draft as well as Grapefruit Sculpin and Christmas Bomb. Square Burger had BB 8 at one point but not sure if they still have any and/or they are serving it (sometimes they hold back certain beers for future release or events).

    For those not familiar, all 3 bars are a few blocks from each other.

    I don't blame you, I rarely go south of 121 unless it's for work. I have mostly everything I want within walking distance or at my house.
