Austin now has a Spec's Liquor at 5775 Airport, which I've been stopping at quite a bit since it's on my way home from work. Their beer selection isn't quite as awesome as Grape Vine Market — basically, Grape Vine has pretty much everything you can possibly get in Texas, and Spec's has almost everything – but they do have this nice deal where paying in cash gets you a five percent discount.
And right now, they have a fantastic sale – if you pay cash, you can get any Paulaner or Hacker-Pschorr six-pack for $6.99. That's about two dollars off! I got some nice Salvator Double Bock to chase away last night's cool weather. Mmmm … malty.
