Jones @ 290 Specs has one left on the shelf as of yesterday evening.
Sam at Sunrise told me he got 7 cases...still sitting on the counter. Guess BEK loves them.....
There's somewhere around that amount sitting in every store I believe (5-8 cases). Doesn't look to be as rare as I'd imagine.
Guess Austin got most of this as well.
Central market in Dallas is getting 2 cases tomorrow. $19.99 each
I saw a ton of this at all 3 local bottle shops I visit in South Austin. $22.99 seems to be the popular price.
Actually, CM on Preston just put out their only case, 19.99 each and no limit.
CM Lovers says they will get theirs Tom, and already have a list going.
Hope that helps!
I just picked up 2 at CM on Preston. It looked like they had about 5 left.
Gabriel's got 3 cases of XV today.
not rare, and too expensive for what you get. trade for 2 Bourbon Counties and it would be cheaper and better.
If anyome wants more, WFM Katy got 2 cases in.
Closer to $350 I think, but I haven't seen an invoice yet. Black Star will have it but I don't think I can talk about it without getting my post deleted.
Yea bit of an exaggeration but still crazy expensive...I know draught house is sitting on a keg as well. I'm sure they'll tap it in the near future...
Just saw some at Total Wine in Fort Worth if anyone is still looking for this.
Whole Foods Lamar had a few bottles left as of yesterday evening.
Think there are still any out there in Houston? - I tried it at BRC and it was pretty damned good, Would like a bottle to split with friends.
I think we have a new winner in the Ba Old Rasputin XV on-premise price wars.
Lake front property value has skyrocketed!
Lake Flying Saucer = $40!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, I miss the days of the $25 bomber already lol
Guess I was the only one who didn't know this was a 500ml bottle. Ill pass for $20
WOAH - That's only 16.9oz - Not even a bomber and barely over a pint....now the $17.50 Pints at BRC (ontap) don't sound too bad - Fuck that.
I always like to age BA Raspy. Can't do that with a pint.
Honestly, if it was $17.50, it was underpriced.
I'll be opening mine in April.
I would strongly suggest sitting on this one for a while. Popped one the other day and it was scorching hot...super boozy.
I cant believe they were doing pints. I would have suspected an 8-10oz snifter
Nah man, said on the menu "$17.50 / Pint" - I now regret getting only a sample of it - Shit was damned good.
The specs on weslayn and bissonett still had a lot left when I was there last Thursday.
Thanks, Hope they still have some this weekend.
I've got nothing useful to add except that I Found one in Plano, TX. I was scanning the isles for anything interesting while my sandwich was being made. They had evidently found this one bottle mis-stocked today, and they redisplayed it (according to cashier). Dumb luck - I was the first beer gnurd to scan the isle since then. "Thar she blows!"
Just opened the one I bought a year ago and cellared...delicious.
Good Ole Mr G's I take it... Damn I need to get up there for a sandwich
I got one in Brownsville TX last saturday for 19.99. Brownsville does not usually get much rare stuff, so there should be plenty of these around. Or maybe the price dissuades otherwise willing customers. I realized it was crazy expensive, but couldn't pass it up since I love regular Raspy. I guess I'll try it just once and hopefully not get hooked on it.
I didn't like like Regular Raspy (vs. Narwhal, FIS) but, BA Old Raspy - Good Shit.
I picked up a bottle yesterday for $16.99. Couldn't believe I saw it at that price.
there are 3 left at the specs here in katy off mason road if you are still looking for some.
I may have to make a trip this weekend.
Saw them as well earlier this week. Couldn't bring myself to buy any. Saved my money and got WBDPP instead.
I got 6 BA Rasputins and 8 WBADPPs lol. My friends love me haha.
That's my kinda guy. I have three, shared another with a friend. Only one WBADPP; said friend has two. I did have the WBADPP on cask at Chicago House last night, and I had BAOR maybe 6-7 times at Draught House while they had it (along with Sucaba, on two occasions... good nights, those were).
