One of my very favorite breweries, which I've raved about here often, is Kansas City's Boulevard. I'd heard they started distributing in Texas, but only up in the DFW area. Now, a buyer with Spec's informs me: "Boulevard has just become available in Austin and should be in the stores later this week or early next week."
Kick butt! Of course, I'm guessing they won't be sending their seasonals and specialties down here, so I'm sure I'll still be dependent on my twice-annual trips to see the in-laws for that stuff. Or trips by the mother-in-law down here to Texas.
Fun bit of trivia: Since InBev purchased Anheuser-Busch, Boulevard is now the largest Missouri-owned brewery.
