Visited the new Spec's store in South Austin today. Wow, what a beer, booze & wine selection. Picked up some good Tequila, Ouzo, Texas Vodka, wine, & cigars, plus a few beers to try out.

Man I was surprised to see Hobgoblin there.

Hope the Laguitas made the trip to Texas well. That stuff is great, but I have heard that I'd doesn't travel well.

Yep. They finally opened up. Most awsome store! The best selection of beer I have ever seen in Texas. If it is distributed in Texas, this store has it.

It's worth the short drive up here. C'mon up for the Bus trip to St. Arnolds and stop by Spec's on the way home.
