    I'm assuming its going to fly off of the shelves like Dissident did. I haven't heard anything about it but its been showing up in other states.
     
  2. Oddly enough, I've recently seen last year's Abyss still on the shelf in Northern Colorado, Greeley specifically. But if I see any new bottles I'll give a yell.

    there is like 10 times more Abyss then Dissident, so it's not the mad bum-rush to get it.

    ^and Dissident is brewed every 2 vs. Abyss
     
  6. Yeah, I just picked up a 2011 Abyss yesterday... still haven't seen the '12 though.
     
  7. I talked with the dudes at Mile High and Parker Payless...sounds like distro is waiting till after the holiday weekend to send it out, and should be hitting shelves Monday or Tuesday
     
  8. Well, I just did last night. That and a bottle of FW XVI.

    Abyss finally landed in FoCo. I hit my favorite shop and was limited to 2 bottles. The beer guy told me they got 3 cases and were told that's all they're getting this year. Said they got 18-20 cases last year (in several shipments).

    EDIT: It's up a couple of bucks/bottle to $15

    Likely story, right? Aren't we told the same thing every year and then new cases keep magically appearing through January/Feb? With that said, I still haven't seen it in the Boulder area. Anybody around Denver/Boulder spotted it yet?

    Found one in Boulder this evening. Was limited to the one and was told that it was their last one. They said they only received two cases.

    It was $15 as well.
     
  12. Picked one up from Mr. B's today...one bottle limit, 15 bucks a bottle.

    Sounds like we aren't getting as much as everyone thought

    Deschutes is really finding that sweet spot with their pricing. Don't be surprised if it continues to rise acouple dollars every year until sales slow. Kudos to them but for $15 ill stick to 100% barrel aged beers from FW.

    I was at Supermarket and either they sold out or you had to know to ask for it to grab some. I didn't bother asking for anything.

    Argonaut still had it as of rush hour, had to ask, sounded like they had a few left
     
  21. Just had two friends pick em up at Superior. Limit 1 ea. You could try Petty John's in Boulder... I scored a case last year. They don't limit anything there :)

    Abyss just hit Colorado Springs today. Weber has it on their shelf.

    Plenty with no limit at total beverage. Arg had a few cases left too.
     
  24. Which Total Beverage? I was at 92nd and Sheridan at about 5:30p and it wasn't there. Guess I need to call.

    Got one at Typsies yesterday. They said they only got one case and it was a one bottle limit. Dude had trouble ringing it up but charged me $12.99.

    Prospero Advocate (685) Colorado Jul 27, 2010

    Probably rang it up as Deschutes Reserve series so it's likely it was the last reserve to come out (BBXXIV) price. I'd take Abyss all day long at $12.99 or $13.99.... by far a steal.
     
  27. bushmat2

    bushmat2 Aficionado (125) Colorado Feb 18, 2011

    Total bev off 104th. Either 12.99 or 13.99, cant remember. Arg opened two new cases when i was there last night as well. Good luck.

    I just meant in regards to other barrel aged beers (*cough* The Bruery *cough*)
     
  30. Chambers, $13.99 each. Now.

  33. Found an Abyss at Bubbles for $11.99.
     
  34. Superior had it, 18.99$ on sale for 12.99 *shrug*
     
  35. Several places in C. Springs have it. But saw one bottle left in two locations and another you have to ask for it. Seems like its going waaay faster this year. Even the Springs is seeing an increase in beer nerds.

    Stopped by my fav store in Longmont (Liquor Land) on a drive earlier this morning and they had 5 bottles of Abyss left. Other bottles of note were River North's Hoppenberg, Stone's Chocolate Mint Stout, Ghost Face Killah, Avery's Odio Equum, Chicken Killer, CS's Surette Reserva, still lots of Collage, and lots of stuff from Epic - a little over a case of Big Bad Baptist, Fermentation, and Brainless on Peaches.
     
  37. If only the drive wasn't so far...the Odio Equum is tempting me
     
  38. Will there be more than one shipment of this? The four or five places I frequent in Denver all sold out within two days, almost as bad as Dissident.
     
  39. Rumor is yes, but not to all the places that got the first shipment. I am not positive on this however.

    Whole Foods boulder has 10 left (well 2 were gone from the case he said, could've got more than one case) was only 11.99, they had some sort of problem with the pricing, so it just went on sale today or yesterday. Gotta ask for it.
