You should. They are fun guys!
Specs Westheimer/Kirkwood got 2 cases at about 11am. 1 per.
Still none at HEB over there.
And apparently Specs at 290/Jones got screwed on this one and won't be getting any. Thats kinda surprising.
Not really, as of late they are the black sheep. They haven't been getting other things either. I was just over there and she said they were supposed to get it today but didn't. She hopes they get it, but isn't sure.
So what if I find it highly amusing to perform daily searches for DR12 and flag them all?
BTW, for what it's worth, Fragile is a great beer. I hate spices in my beer, and I think the barrel flavors do a good job of melding with/muting them from the base beer. This beer actually reminds me of Christmas in a good way, rather than freebasing nutmeg and allspice.
D&Q just tweeted a case of this was in.
..not gonna make it oh well, can't make every release.
Did you tweet him to ask for him to hold you one? Worth a shot.
Edit: Just saw he tweeted he didn't have enough. Bummer.
Nope, I knew I wasn't going to make it before the regular beer hypebeasts made it so forget it, don't want to waste his time.
Specs on I-10 Spring Valley still has 3!
Specs at Westheimer and Kirkwood is out.
damn. never gonna get this one i guess.
I'm with you Daemose..... though I'll get to taste it.. as my cousin grabbed a bottle... and is waiting for a Christmas party to let me try it at least.
Nice. I think I may have a chance. Maybe.
Whole Foods on Bellaire still has some (wouldn't tell me how much) with a 1 bottle limit. Specs on Weslayan said hopefully tomorrow afternoon.
LOL. I'm so not going to be able to get one of these with all these 1 bottle limits, it's not even funny.
Opened one tonight. Absolutely loved it. I will be trying to find some more if any more locations receive shipments. Its a more muted Yule Shoot Your Eye Out with bourbon barrel characteristics that become more dominant as the beer grows warmer. If you like Yule, you'll love this.
I like a big bourbon flavor in my BBA beers so I was a little disappointed with this one, but it was still tasty. How long was it aged?
For those still looking... according to a couple friends...
HEB @ Westheimer/Kirkwood got theirs. 2 bottle limit. They also put out some DR10 and DR12.
Specs @ Jones/290 got a couple cases. Not sure on the limit.
DR10?! Did they find this hidden behind a pallet of Coors or something?
I got a call from Specs Beer Gal at 290 and Jones telling me they were in. She said she would hold me one so I'm hoping it works out.
Yeah, the DR drop seemed odd. Not sure how much they had.
Damn! Wish I could go get that DR10.
I don't know how much they have left, but I grabbed a bottle at 290/Jones.
They also have a little something known as Brooklyn Black Ops.
=| Gonna try my luck after work...lol.
Guess that means it's time to pop my 2011 BLOPS and pick up another one.
It's a pricey one!
I paid $25 last year. How much worse could it be? lol.
$22.49 at Specs. That's probably the most I've paid at retail. Heck, I only paid $25 for Madame Rose at GI brewpub. lol
Where was the Black Ops? Behind the counter as well? I did not see it. But did pick up an Original Black Metal. Hooray.
I had to ask for it.
No clue how much they had.
OBannons in College Station is tapping a Karbach cask "Oh Fudge" christmas ale with cocoa tonight, FWIW. along with a cask of Fra-gee-lay.
Oh. My. God. I hope there will be another appearance of "Oh Fudge", somewhere in Houston.
I went in and told the beer gal, "Word on the streets is you have Black Ops.." She was like, "Oh MY god, word travels fast!" And ran back to get me one. She said she got one case and wasnt putting it out. So they're at least two down now. And I paid $22.94
She's pretty cool.
She is! Well, I only just met her today but she seemed nice enough.
290/Jones is out. Out of icon too
Well the Clear Lake area seemed to get the shaft on Fragile....
My GF somehow scored two bottles on Tuesday! YES!
i wish i'd been on this site long enough to make friends and whatnot, because i've got a bottle i'm willing to part with at cost and haven't got any real life beer geek buddies either.
