    Should be popping up around Austin the next couple of days. I was able to snag a bottle from Sunrise today...not sure if they're getting more (they're out now btw). I hear all the other usual suspects around town and the state (CM, Specs, etc...) should be getting small amounts. Post if you have info please...

    If any Austin pals can score an extra bottle, I will bring you a Karbach BB Hellfighter bottle the next time I come to town.

    Sorry about the other thread, thanks for starting a new one.

    Dissident should be at most better beer stores over the next month. Specs for what ever reason will not have it unless things change.

    Think Specs in the Austin area are fully expecting to receive Dissident. I know that at least on location had it on their invoice but it wasn't on the truck. They are being told next week...but it's been next week for some time now so who knows.

    I haven't been around this site much and missed the other thread but...Dissident came out about 3 weeks ago in San Antonio. I guess for once San Antonio got it way ahead of the rest of the state. Why did it take so long to arrive in other markets?

    3 cases at specs airport, Brodie said expecting it Monday. Not sure what status is with CM. Sunrise sold out within like 30 minutes of the tweet this morning.

    Glad Specs got the issues corrected that prevented them from selling it in DFW.

    dissident reserve hit Los Angeles area about 3-4 weeks ago and is long gone
    can't believe it just coming out there would have thought it was all gone by now

    Did you have someone with you, or were they at a two-bottle limit and now have bumped it down to a one-bottle limit due to the unexpected demand for a very popular beer that they got 36 bottles of?

    I'd like to do a dramatic reading... aww crap, I guess I can't here... ;)

    Good luck to you Austin folks. :) I've yet to try this beer and thanks to a distribution scuffle, Houston won't get any this year.

    It was mentioned in the Drama-filled version of the Dissident thread.

    I guess at least I don't know what I'm missing. lol

    This is really frustrating. Feels like we keep waiting and now they're waving it in our face. I know it's nothing intentional, but still frustrating. I'd like to at least manage a couple bottles.

    It was the same story up here in Dallas with specs. They got two cases and had to refuse the shipment twice because it wasn't in the system. They never sold it.

    Different distributors. Apparently BEK (DFW & SATX) got it a month before Capitol (Austin) did, and now they're saying that Abyss is coming very soon. And I have no clue who carries Deschutes in Houston and why they're apparently getting the shaft.

    CM Westgate has gone through a case and is almost out of their second and last of The Dissident. Picked up my 1 bottle. If I see it again in my travels... I'll make sure a Houstonite gets some (for some Karbach ;) )

    I'm not even in town and I got 2 bottles. :p

    Walked into a store in MD today and they had 2 dusty cases of BCBS and a case of BC coffee just sitting on the floor. Didn't buy any, but damn it's nice to see good distribution and wish we had it so good.

    I grabbed a Lolita and a Sucaba off the shelf last time I was in MD. Amazing distro in that region.

    Definitely not intentional - somehow somebody at the brewery messed up and did not load the cases of dissident when they sent the shipment to Austin last month...that is why it was delayed.

    every store which carries craft beer is getting a case each because CBC only got 40 cases - specs got about 5-6 cases coz they're Specs ( not really - there total store count around Austin is 6 may b? i dunno i never been to any specs :|) they get all there beers at Brodie location and that location decides which specs gets what -

    i was gonna comment on the drama on the other thread but NAHHHH - im on a vacation in India so i'll pass. try and take it easy coz after all its just beer and (to me) not worth arguing or pissing anybody off...

    NAMASTE

    Y'all really need to learn to trade... I've got mutiples of both BCBS and BCBCS coffee coming in this week. That's a $4$ trade right now... it's plentiful. Plus you can feel good about spreadin' some Texas craft beer around to others. I'm all for that as long as you don't overdo it (IE: hurt locals ability to get them).

    Not trading my 1 bottle of Dissident though. My preeeecious.
