    Hey all, going to Texas later this week and want to bring back a couple 22's of one of favorite DIPA's. Anyone know where I could get get Endeavor at a bottle shop in Houston? Already checked Spec's, didn't show up on search.

    Pretty much anywhere. Just call a Specs when you get there. I've always seen Endeavour at every place I've gone. HEB and Randalls should have it too. It won't be hard to find.

    It is everywhere. HEB, Kroger, Specs. The Specs website is not very user friendly, and may not be updated. You can find cases of it at pretty much any place that sells beer in Houston. Check the bottle date, cause some old stuff can linger for a bit. I don't know what the most recent batch is? If I find out, I'll post back.

    Independence also has some good stuff, as does Southern Star. Buried Hatchet, Convict Hill, and Bombshell Blonde are all beers of theirs I used to really enjoy when I lived in TX

    Appreciate it. I'll have to try the Real Ale and some others if I have time.

    Also seek out D&Q Mini Mart. That place has a great bottle selection and carries almost anything you can think of. The owner is a truly awesome person.

    Pretty sure most recent Endeavor is 4/12/13. Grabbed a bottle the other say. Prior to that is 3/20/13.

    HEB Buffalo Speedway in Houston. Sounds like HEB is the shit for Endeavor...

    Just as a note. Had a Endeavor bottled 2/11(?)/13 and 4/12/13 tonight. Blind test and clearly chose the 4/12/13.

    To my primitive palate, nicer floral notes and crisper hop bite. The older Endeavor was still tasty but was a clear loser in the side by side.

    Gonna try to keep my Endeavor purchases to <1 month from here on out. Luckily I'm in Houston so I should be good to go.

    3/20 Endeavour is everywhere, but I've seen 4/12 Endeavour at Spec's Smith Street and it's obviously elsewhere. Every day fresher matters. Always check the dates.

    anyone seen anything newer than 08/08/13, or know the next bottling date?

    Last bottling run was 8/29. Next one will be in a week or so.
