Brother Thelonious available in Texas now

They had me at the bottle — much like the way Old Rasputin sucked me in. And like Rasputin – made by the same brewery — the beer inside did not disappoint. North Coast Brewery's homage to both Belgian abbey ale and jazz hypergenius Thelonious Monk is now available here in Austin. I found some at Central Market after their "big beers" class last week. It tastes as good as any abbey I've had — nutty, with faint hints of cinnamon and chocolate. At some point, I'm going on a mission to try everything North Coast makes, because as I've blathered many times previously, if these guys have made a mediocre beer yet, I haven't had it.
