Beer Travel / Re: Houston/Austin
« on: Today at 12:26:59 PM »
Houston is painful at times to only travel a few miles. I didn't have time to hit the recommended watering holes when I was there, but was eyeballing this list. Hopefully someone gives you some better recommendations.

When we were in Austin we enjoyed Black Star Co-op, but it has been years so the entire beer scene nationwide has exploded. On that visit we hit The Ginger Man and Flying Saucer, but I think Ginger Man has closed.

Apparently it has been around a long time. There have been 15yr and 21yr releases.

I pretty much agree with this review:

I googled it and it sure looks like a 13$ bottle... monotone green and white label, plain lettering.  Both websites I looked at said it's actually rare to find in the US anymore, the majority gets shipped out.

It's a black label which looks atrocious. (Photo off the internet.)

No, Virgin Bourbon is Heaven Hill. I don't believe it appears on their website.

I'm gonna go pick some up in a few minutes. Virgin to me tastes very similar to Four Roses SB, it is 101 proof and aged 7 years. It is much better than expected.

Edit: Ezra Brooks 90 is very boring. Nothing wrong with it, but boring.

I'll have to try it to know. Currently in NC Ezra Brooks 90 runs $12.

I like Old Ezra, but it is boring neat. Virgin is certainly not boring.

Just so it isn't lost. Hit the Virgin Bourbon again last night. Very impressed at how good a $13 bottle is served neat.

Standard goes on sale in August for $20. I may wait until it hits sale to grab one. If I open the BIB I'll post my thoughts.

By chance I just bought of fifth of the BIB Old Overholt. I didn't save the receipt, I think it was $25. In our stores the standard is $23.
