Default DFH Bitches Brew

Sorry if this has been discussed but I didn't find a thread.

Did anyone get their hands on any bottles of Dogfish Head's Bitches Brew yet? I was lucky enough to grab 5 bottles. Two for me, two for a friend and one for another. They're going for ~$15.

Anyone else?

I looked this weekend, only to find out that it's not available in the state of Texas. Something to do with TABC labeling laws. I've been waiting months for this brew and now I find out I can't get it.

Has anyone been able to find this down south yet? I've got family looking in Louisiana but trying not to get my hopes up.

I acquired two bottles from Habersham Beverage in Savannah. They received one of the two cases for southern Georgia. The other case went to The Distillery, a craft brew pub with great hamburgers.

yikes, i can pick them up all day long here in Columbus, OH for $8.99+taxes, about the cheapest of their 750ml bottles I've seen. Drank one and two for the cellar.

it's pretty tasty. some of their Ancient Ale 750ml bottles start to push the boundary where I don't care for them (Theombroma and Sah'tea in particular), but this one was very tasty. drank it last night with some baby back ribs i grilled out HERE and it was a great pairing.

I scored 13 bottles at $10.99 each. Kept 5 for myself (aging at least 4), and sold the rest to friends.

good stuff. got three growlers at whole foods in northern va for about $45. I went to "happy hour with sam" in baltimore during craft beer week there and he mentioned that they will release it again around the same time the episode of "brewmasters" featuring the beer airs.

I watched the show lastnight and bought a bottle of it today! Cost me $12.12 at Whole Foods. I love the name!
It taste pretty good but has a strong after taste that I really dont like.
