    I've heard a lot about it haven't had the opportunity to try.

    Yep, it's a good'n.

    If you get the chance, try New Holland Brewery's Dragon's Milk, Bells Brewing Black Note or Founders' Brewing Kentucky Breakfast Stout, too. All of them are fantastic barrel-aged stouts, just like Black Ops.

    I hate you fully. None of those are available in Texas.

    Well, Black Note is pretty tough to come by anywhere. Do you not get any Bells or Founders in TX?

    There is a brewery in Hickory, NC, that makes a wonderful barrel-aged stout, too. It's called Event Horizon. I'm certain you don't get it in TX, either. Look it up on BeerAdvocate.com and if you're interested in doing a bottle swap, let me know. We have several 750mL bottles from this year's production.

    Bells nor Founders have ever been in Texas. I looked on the TABC (our BATF for booze) webpage for confirmation.


    What would you like in trade?

    I get that but to me Brown beers are thin and lack finish. But they sell well.

    You got any local breweries that bottle their good stuff? Growlers are too much of a pain in the ass to try to ship.

    Event Horizon isn't too pricey, $15/bomber, so anything $10-15 a bomber is fine.

    We have a bunch of Texas breweries. Most I'd tag somewhere between good and very good with a couple inching into the the very good/excellent category. I'll snoop around.
