    I'm glad they didn't do a sneak release. I won't be home until Friday so this works out well for me.

    Ya swung by and picked up a few BB2 from Petrol yesterday and they mentioned they already have a case of BB3 in the back. Tried to talk him into sneaking me a few.... Didn't work :-(

    I actually had a BB3 last night. If memory serves from BB1, this one is a tad darker, seemed slightly thicker, but still on the thin side. Still a bit too sweet for my liking. And i like a little burn in my barrel aged beers. Especially when it is this fresh. But i got nothing here.

    I guess I need to open another BB1 to make a better comparison.

    That is a tough one. Hay Merchant in Houston sold them for $6. I know that is pretty much cost, so they basically are making nothing. $12-13 is about double, so on par, maybe even less than most bars mark up for other bottles. I have seen them for as much as $15. At a bar, I understand the mark up, if this was at a store, no way.

    Cost is actually around $3.75.

    Don't think Hay Merchant are saints. ;)

    Petrol's first batch went for $8, but last week was selling for $6.

    You Sir are a Scholar and a Gentleman, thanks to your list I was able to score BB2 - You must let me buy you a beer sometime.

    Still haven't seen BB2 around this way. I may just have to give up on that one.

    Glad it's been useful. No need to buy me a beer though, it's really the Houston beer community that makes it work. I just threw together a super-simple spreadsheet. But if you insist...

    Also just followed you on Twitter. Cheers!

    Sorry lol, I meant On the 13th at 3pm.. I'm just saying they already have it in the back.

    I went straight from looking at the google doc to replying..

    "Facebook: Rumor has it that we will be getting Saint Arnold Bishop's Barrel 3 on Monday.
    The rarest of the BB series and one of the smallest production St Arnold beers ever. We open at 3:00pm Monday..."

    sorry for the confusion.

    Is there a list of places in San Antonio that are gonna get it?
     
  35. Beernerds

    Beernerds Dec 7, 2011 Texas

    For the 2 prior BB releases, the wiki doc had a tab for non-Houston release details (mostly DFW, IIRC). I don't think they ended up being too useful though, since not enough info was added.

    Long way of saying that, I don't know where to find release details for places other than Houston, but the wiki doc could help if enough people contribute.
