^^ Nice haul
I'm shocked they still have Pumpkinator in stock
Nice haul azzhole!
Yeah I did a double take when I saw one bottle of Pumpkinator sitting on the shelf. Felt like Christmas all over again! Pretty sure the manager saved a bottle or two before the Pumpkinator mob hit stores. I remember that location selling out within a few hours of release, and I couldn't buy any last October.
u wot mate?
An azzhole would've scoped out where the manager was hiding the beer and made off with a case when they weren't looking.
He's merely got a good haul.
That is one hell of a haul. Abyss in Houston is either not coming, or there's going to be enough that its going to be sitting on shelves for awhile like previous years.
According to the assistant VP of sales for Ben E Keith, Abyss SHOULD drop in DFW this week. Once again, This guy has blown smoke up my ass on more than one occasion, but after all the flack they've gotten about this particular beer, I believe him. As soon as it appears, I'll spread the word. I know My store should get some, as well as Hall's in Colleyville, and Whip-In in Flowermound. It will most likely be highly allocated, just like the Dissident was (I.E. only 1-2 cases per account), but I WILL let you all know when it makes it mystical appearance.
Man I could have sworn somebody said Texas wasn't getting Abyss at all this year....
SOMEONE deserves a mortarboard for their genius-ass... (genius-ass being a step higher that wise-ass)
It's all good
Don't you know it's will be here next week!
Realize this is an Abyss thread... but Pumpkinator was mentioned above. I have at least 6 I'd like to trade if anyone's interested. Will be at JK2 tomorrow... so let me know if anyone's interested.
SOMEONE needs a proofreader for their BA posts
what on earth makes you think this? and when has it sit on shelves in houston before? we've only gotten it the past two years and if you werent at midtown specs on release date, it was an extremely tough get.
Well, I remember last year or maybe it was the year before that I saw it on multiple visits on the shelf at the specs on 290@jones. At the time I didn't know what it was, so when I did pick one up it was in the cooler at an HEB, which it never gets into the cooler unless it sits for awhile.
didn't you get the t-shirt?
May have been posted already, but on Thursday the HEB at 620 and Anderson Mill had the Abyss out on their shelves. At that time, they had about 10 bottles left, I'd say.
Any Abyss left anywhere in Austin?
I'd check the Four Points HEB, Volente HEB, and Lakeline HEB. I believe all those stores put there's on the shelf on either Wednesday or Thursday.
I just picked up the last one at Volente. Checked Lakeline first, but they were out. At least I got one.
Care to share with us more info on which DFW beer store is "your" store? And I'm assuming you're the owner of said store? Don't take it personal, but in FOUR whole posts, of your entire BA existence, you've managed to say alot, while at the same time not very much.
I like being right about stuff. But enough about me being right and all that...as raffy asked, which store is your's?
Thank you so much for referring me to the Lakeline store! I grabbed 4 bottle of Abyss!
Glad to help out. Beer guy there is really cool and already doing some good things in the beer department.
Note the post a few above that one, where the guy says Lakeline is now out.....
yea saw that too...hmmmmm
His store is Central Market - Southlake.
Let me introduce myself: I am one of the "lurkers" that you talk about on these forums. I am so sick of waiting for Abyss in Houston, I have decided to start posting here.
traded for 2 abyss and 2 dissident today at JK2, I'm in a happy place right now.
This is getting srs guys.
hmmmmmmmmm. Let us not form a lynch mob till...................
I'm expecting some cats outside Specs Downtown Houston picketing for Abyss by next week at this rate.
Got my Abyss fix tonight from a fellow BA member. Thanks again Lokieman!
Got this response via email today
Thanks for taking the time to contact us about The Abyss in Texas. There has been a delay since it was just approved by the Texas TABC. We only send out trucks to TX when needed so the next truck should be heading your way soon. The distributor was in charge of the allocations to accounts so we do not know exactly where it will go and there is very limited quantities so I would try calling Central Markets, Specs, Total Wine & Bev, HEB and Whole Foods this week to see if it has arrived. In Austin, it sold out in about a day so I do hope you are successful. Cheers and it should be on shelves this week or next week.

Thanks for taking the time to contact us about The Abyss. I just spoke with our Texas Market Manager and she says that The Abyss should make it on shelves within the next 2 weeks. Try Whole Foods, Specs, HEB and Central Market. I would try to call the stores in advance as The Abyss hit Austin and was gone in 1 day...
Social Media Coordinator
So they confirm. Next week or 2. Lol
Isn't that what we were told 2 weeks ago?
