    I've been looking forward to trying this, and the website said July 13. Does anyone know more specific date or seen it anywhere already?

    Thanks : )
  2. One of my favorite BA beers, hope you get to try it!

    Its gonna be closer to the end of the month until it hits the stores.
  4. Just wanted to pop on and ask if anyone knows the average price on this? Want to find it as well

  5. about 14.99.

    I still have 2012 at my store actually. should be realllll niceee by now
  6. they had it on tap at both the Visitor's center and the Taproom last weekend in Paso - bourbon, vanilla, oak goodness in a 6oz snifter pour...

    EDIT: no bottles to-go though...
  7. Which is odd because this one really didn't move at all in most every shop I stopped into.

    Same thing around here in BevMo. It is all over the shelves locally. Tap room in Buelton said stores should see it in about a week and it will fan out than. I've heard $14.99 but it might go for $16.99.

  12. I agree. I saw it here in Chicago 6 months after it was released....just collecting dust. Really wish I would have picked up more!

    I picked one up in Albany (Oliver's) about 10 days ago. It was 14.99 iirc.
  14. a 2013 or 2012?

    I just assumed it was 2013, but I will have to check when I get home today because it seems like it would have been kind of early for a 2013 judging by what everyone is saying. I'll be pretty happy if its a 2012.
  16. Yea, I've got a 2012 still waiting to be drank. Can't decide when I want to pop it.

    This was my first and only Firestone drain pour.

  18. I had that same issue ^. I love DDBA, but the last one I encountered was an immediate drainpour. I wasnt going to come flying onto BA and start calling out "infected", but I strongly believe it was..

    I just picked up 2 bottles (boxes) yesterday in South Jersey. Either $14.99 or $15.99.
  21. I see you're in AZ, 2012 is still available at multiple locations throughout the valley...If you didn't already know.
  22. 2012s available several places here in San Diego. Great beer though.

    2012s can still be found in Philly as well. Can't understand why Parabola flies while everything else Firestone, including anniversary beers, sit around for a bit. But hey, it's fine by me.
  24. I have seen DBA (not sure if it's the same) but always pass as I usually do with all FW beers....
    Because for some reason, I have yet to see anything fresh on the shelves near me. Even when new Union Jack and Double Jack arrives on the shelves, they are already out-dated. Apparently, (from what I've gathered in these threads) this is a common problem for people who don't even live this state. So,what gives?

    So much toffee. Absolutely love this beer. 4 packs please.
  26. the price tag, I guess. Because really, Parabola is amazing for the price point.

    Yes. Yes it is.

    I've had one or two of these recently and enjoyed it more than fresh. A store near me had some stocked recently (still does, actually) and I bought one, assuming it was the 2013. Nice of them to age a bottle for me anyway.

    I didn't, actually, but thanks for the tip :)

    Do you know where and how much its going for?
  29. I've seen it on tap recently around Rochester- I don't know if any place still has it though.

    I found a bottle at DeCicco's in Ardsley. It was a '12 and only $17.
  31. Generally wait time until it hits stores is 2 weeks - thats what it was for Parabola. Where i work we received a shipment of 2012 just last month, so that might be why a lot of people are seeing 2012 still - distributors pushing out last years before this years comes in. 2 weeks is standard for most special release beers from all distributors.

    2GOOFY Savant (345) California Aug 19, 2012

    Released in bottles at the Barrelworks on Saturday the 13th. About $16
  33. I hit Barrelworks on Sunday. They had the four year old Barrel 66, which was the first batch, on tap and it was sublime. Had it next to '12 and '13 and this is clearly a beer that gets better with a few years on it. They also had a blackberry sour stout that knocked my socks off, and thats not usually my kind of thing.
  34. I know for sure Gilbert Convenient Mart (in Gilbert) has some and I think for $15. Can't remember where else and don't want to give you wrong info...

    2GOOFY Savant (345) California Aug 19, 2012

    That stout was great...made me want to put it on pancakes :)

  36. Yea, don't buy old IPAs, but I hope you are buying any of the high ABV barrel aged beers because the older the better with them beauty's!

    Drank my last 2012 bottle a few months ago and it was fantastic. I can still find a few places around me that have the 2012's. I think since it was the first releas of it, people didn't know what of make of it. I'm going to pick up a few more for a side by side when this years comes out. Really underrated beer IMO.

  39. At a liquor store near me, they still had like 3 or 4 Sucaba's left from this year. So crazy.

    Hopefully they didn't after you left!
