    Protip: If you go by Whole Foods in Downtown Austin during December... they usually make Shiner Cheer gelato.

    Did someone say Double Bastard? Picture taken at a Total Wine in Torrance, CA.

    ... I'm moving.

    I actually got 2 bottles of this via Corpus Christi, so I'm happy. :)

    It's on the shelf at multiple places around Austin. Are people having a hard time finding it? Pretty sure I saw it at Live Oak Market, King Liquor and maybe a few other locations.

    That was just the tip of the iceburg. There are so many fantastic beers sitting around in SoCal. Make a trip, bring cash for shippers.

    I really enjoy the Total Wine in Fort Worth, but they had NOTHING like that there. I grabbed a bottle of Double Bastard and really didnt care for it like I did in previous years

    I don't know if it's the water or yeast they use, I just don't like/prefer Stone's offerings. Much like the aggies, in a vacuum, they are pretty good, but there are just better options in every category.

    I had Lucky Bastard on tap last night at Anvil Pub in Deep Ellum and I thought that was a very solid brew.

    No, I'm betting that he isn't broke after making millions because he's a moron. He wasted a talent most people would kill for and pissed away millions of dollars to stroke his ego...

    And big talk from a horde of people that proclaimed Vince a can't miss.

    Keep sippin' it up T-sip!

    Oddly, I find it actually is better aged. I've had both fresh and about a year old. I really liked the year old better.

    Don't get me wrong, it's still tasty fresh. :D

    had it last night, tasted really stale and nothing like I remember last time. I was seriously disappointed.

    I chalked it up to age.

    Maybe this batch just wasn't good.

    Thing is I tried it on tap in 2010 and loved it, found an old bottle in MI and loved it even more. I then tried it last weekend and liked it, but not as much as in 2010. I figured my tastes might have evolved.

    I'll have to break out my other bottle and a fresh bottle (if they ever release this in Houston!) and do a side by side.

    Again, typical aggie. Maybe you should wait and see if your boy gets millions before making statements. He might not blow these mythical "millions" on ego, but he could easily blow it on legal fees. Walmart doesn't screw around!

    What?! I never said Manziel was the best. Just showing that UT has a less than stellar track record. In fact it has the most flame outs for extremely talented athletes I can think of in recent years.

    Your bashing is as blind as your devotion to your school. You are one of those people who hope the Aggies lose when UT and A&M aren't even in the same conference. You are so blinded by poisened kool-aid that you probably hate A&M more than you like your own school.

    Wake up and realize that they are just that, schools. Rivalry is fun, but to say I'm less of a person because I'm an Aggie is just sad.

    Back on topic, any word on GI stuff. I'm waiting on Kegs of Matilda patiently, but it's getting harder to wait. :D

    Everyone calm down and have an OU Sucks beer. (I have no dog in this fight, as I'm not from Texas and could care less about any of these teams, but its fun to poke the bear)

    I bought a case of OU sucks because I found it funny. The beer was meh, but I dug the idea.

    And that's from an Aggie. :D

    There's a crazy amount of projection in that post. You don't seem to be replying to anything I actually said.

    Anyhow, besides being fairly hypocritical, kevinscott's statement is somewhat true. Back to talking beer.

    I've got a couple bottles to age, hopefully it will only get better. But it is interesting to see the differences between draft and bottle of the same beer.

    Old ale. Seems kinda weak at 6.9%, but not complaining. The guy looks like St. Arnold if he was a King lol. They still don't seem to know how many ounces are in 750 ml though!

    I don't know, they got it right on Blind Ambition. Anyone seen Le Mort in these bottles? Would be awesome if these were huge.

    Blind Ambition was fantastic. Southern Star is 1 fantastic sour from being my favorite TX brewer.

    The "Old World Awesomeness" motto makes the weird sizes make more sense.

    Gotta say, love this artwork and Blind Ambitions artwork. Finally, Southern Star is stepping up their label game. Can't begin to tell you how much bottle/can aesthetics plays into the beer for me. A good brew recipe coupled with a great bottle/can artwork is almost synergistic for a beer.

    That's typically why I turn away from Flying Dog. Don't get me wrong, the beer is good, but there's just something about drinking a beer with a big sloppy dog vagina on the label that doesn't get me too enthused about the beer...
