    I contacted DFH a few weeks back and they confirmed that this year in addition to kegs we will get the 4 packs in Texas.

    Burton Baton is supposed to be year-round so it should just be a matter of time till we get some more.

    Brews Brothers on the Strand in Galveston has it on tap.

    Edit...I chose the Deep Ellum IPA over it and it was good. Seeing how I've had the BB before.

    CM westgate tried to put this out quietly, fat chance. I got a few with some still on the shelves. Also got the last tart lychee which prompted the sales guy to put out...bottleworks 13! Come and get them kids.

    I don't know where you're located, but i've been getting it at Gabriel's in San Marcos for a few months now. They got like 5 cases and I'm apparently the only one buying it.

    I found some at East 1st Grocery (Austin) today. Chicon/Cesar Chavez. They had 2 four packs left (I think they only got 1 case). It's possible that they had more in the back. 10.99 for a 4pack

    They also have a lot of other great stuff. They've really changed their selection in the last few months. Their owner, Sam, is always willing to purchase whatever the customers want.

    Hmm. Not been much of a DFH fan, but I DO like fruit beers, so I'll likely have to give this a go. Was just in Massachusetts and the shelves were thick with it (along with a lot of other great stuff we don't get here) - should have bought some there....
