    If you’re excited by two wine aisles than you are far depraved of the genius that is HEB Plus. They eat Kroger’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snack.(wine stewards at the ready? check!) no card required, either. However lame they may be in comparison to the almighty “heeb” (as true afficionados call it.) I have to admit that there is quite the buzz around denton about this elusive new store. Me and the roomies want to go, but no one will even tell us where it is. LAME.

    Ah, the new one (beer that is). It’s been under wraps as to what style it would be but the name gives it away – a doppelbock. In the fine Bavarian tradition, they all end with a “-ator” suffix (the most popular being the Paulaner Salvator).
    I’m confused by the label, it says “Celebration Ale” . . . dobbelbocks (like all bocks) are lagers. Maybe another hiccup by the massive corporate hands pulling the strings at the “little brewery in Shiner?”
