Austinites Line Up For Obscure Barley Wine
A new batch of Saint Arnold's Divine Reserve is hitting store shelves today. The Divine Reserve is a limited edition brew occasionally released by The Houston-based brewer. Some Austin beer enthusiasts are even taking the day off work to ensure they can grab cases of the barley wine.
"There's a huge subculture of beer nerds, and acquiring a one-off is a pretty big deal," said Chris Troutman, who runs the blog Beer Town Austin. "For the longest time, [Saint Arnold's] was the only brewery doing that, so it's got a lot of momentum and hype around it."
