    Specs gives an additional discount if you buy a whole case of something.

    Picked up and had a FBS this evening. Was it delicious, yes. Was it worth buying, ehh. Would I buy it over Real Ale Coffee Porter, Hell No! Sure its a different "style", but for those of you who haven't had the RA Coffee, buy a 6pk this week. You won't waste your money on FBS again.

    Is there any reason to expect that this beer won't be on shelves all over the place? It's available for 5 months out of the year.

    That must mean they have a limit on it if it is behind the counter. Shell in FW just put on Facebook they have FBS as well but they have 1 per limit. (I sure as hell hope they don't mean 1 bottle)

    So WTF, I was under the impression this wouldn't be hard to find. Obviously it hasn't been since I've seen it, and I've passed on it each time.

    When I was grocery shopping yesterday at HEB Buffalo Speedway I picked up a four pack. There were at least 8 cases left, and I have to imagine more were probably "in the back" since there wasn't room for more.
