Ill buy you a bottle if you go pick it up for me, bro.
I just had a 2012 bottle at a Bar 2 weeks ago, paid $30 for the bottle. Damn fine beer cant wait to get a bottle off the shelf this year.
I randomly found a 2012 Parabola last month in some obscure half beer store/half deli in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. $22 was a little too pricey for me, but I gave the head's up to another BAer and he snagged it. I'm pressing the owner of the store for Sucaba. Hopefully he'll get a few bottles in next month.
Hells yes. His FW Proprietor's Reserve beers always go for $13.99 I think (except the Anniversaries). He is closed on Sunday and Monday but I'll swing my Tuesday when I get off work. Your looking for the Sucaba right? BM me
Any sightings of this in the SoCal region yet? Please and thank you!
Man, it's still all over the place in the Bay Area...$22-25 a bottle. As in I can literally walk into any Whole Foods or BevMo. Maybe it's the price that is keeping on the shelves but I know I've got a few stashed away. I'd buy more were it not for the upcoming Sucaba release.
I know for SF Beer Week they are doing a release party at a local joint.
This happened to me, I was going nuts trying to get these beers and like five months later I see Sucaba and Parabola.
Sucaba was sitting on the shelf at WLV during DLD weekend...
I found 2012 Sucaba still on the shelf for $16 yesterday. Probably should have bought more than one.
ISO!! I really want to try more of what FW has to offer. I've only had XV, Union Jack(on tap in Seattle) and Parabola. All of which are outstanding. Anyone willing to send me a FW care package?
I might drive to paso robles to pick some up...
Only about 30 minute drive
Any in IL yet?
Neither of my places have it yet.
Any of this sneaking into NH???
Nothing in NYC-area that I have seen yet, anyone see any yet?
Probably won't get here til at least the end of the week. Ted at Top Hops told me he has some on order but didn't know when they'd be delivered. He mentioned never getting FW XVI supposedly because of Sandy (distributor's excuse), and wasn't sure how Sandy would affect Sucaba's release.
Haven't seen or heard either. Do you know who in NYC got FW 16? The bottle shop I hit up here never got it and same for the whole foods I go to as well.
I couldn't find FW 16 anywhere in NYC. I ended up picking up a bottle at DeCicco's Ardsley for $25. Pretty easy drive from the city. Also had a shit ton of hard to find Bruery stuff and cases of Backwoods Bastard.
I bought a bottle of 2012 a week for 3 weeks at a small shop near me.
Week #4 I went in and the last 3 were still sitting there. I said screw it and bought them all. Its an amazing beer and certainly worthy of all the praise it gets
Last year's Sucaba is drinking wonderfully right now, indeed. XV has also really come into its own for someone like me who prefers a non-hoppy American strong. Yum.
I'm pretty new around here, but If your willing to trade with a first timer I'd like to setup a trade. Let me see how many of the bottles of Sucaba I can get my hands. What's on the top of your FW wish list?
Just called BevMo in Fresno, they had around 2 cases left in stock.
just got some yesterday in Silverdale WA
picked up some Parabola, gotta try this this weekend
Asked about a release date for this at the Total Wine in Northridge, CA and was told it should be either at the store or being shipped to the store on February 11. Just a heads up to LA area people.
Damn, $12 in WA at BevMo
Yeah, I noticed when I was in California that all of Firestone's Proprietor's Reserve series go for $22-25 but I buy them here in Tucson, AZ for $14. Retarded.
Whole Foods has Abacus and Parabola at $14.99 whenever they're out. Only the gougers have it for more.
Anniversary is the only one that is set in the $20+ range.
it's so good
That's what I was trying to say
If this is around next weekend in Chicago, is there going to be a mad dash for it or do I stand a chance of being able to go into a store and pick one up?
It'll most likely be a mad dash once it hits and people know about it. I haven't seen this just sitting around on shelves.
SWEET! Thanks for the information. Firestone Walker just makes damn fine beer, so
look forward to ACTUALLY trying this one day.
Any sighting in the Bay Area?
Does that mean you have a confirmed sighting in AZ?
FYI... I just ran over to Total Wine at Warner and I10 to snag a BA Bigfoot and asked when they were getting Sucaba, they are expecting it around the 20th.
If its anything like Abyss, we'll see if 2 weeks after its hit San Jose/Livermore and you'll really have to hunt to find one.
