    Which region are you visiting? Some beer doesn't make it around the whole state.

    How long does the Pumpkinator last? I'll be down the 25th. What are my chances of picking some up?

    I'd say pretty good... they're making twice as much as last year, iirc. Your chances are especially good if you're going to anywhere outside of Houston... Houston has MANY rabid St. Arnold fans.

    Cool I'll be in Austin and will keep my eyes out for it. Specs is usually one of my first stops after I land.

    Last year my HEB got 2 cases and they were around for 2 weeks. Check HEB if all else fails!
