    I had it on tap in seattle. It is delicious. I also just realized that this is totally useless info
    domtronzero and tyrsis like this.
  3. The great thing about living for the most part in a beer wasteland. Parabola and sucaba sit on the shelves for many months. A local store sold their last bottle of 2012 sucaba a week of so before the release of 2013. I bought a couple bottles at release and the owner told me to get a much as I want.

    There were 4 bottles of Sucaba on the shelf at Whole Foods in Pasadena on Foothill if anyone is still looking for it.

    Still some at BevMo Mira Mesa
  8. Whole Foods in La Jolla has had 4-6 bottles on their shelf the three times I've visited their in the past week. As others have said, if you wait past the initial panic, you'll have no problem finding it.
  9. I work at a store near FW and we had a guy come in and buy 4 cases of Sucaba. I wasn't there but apparently it rung up at like $700+. Im still pissed that the manager on duty let this happen. He even overheard that the guy was going to resell it in the bay area. The store manager was pissed.

    I find it ridiculous that people buy and resell beer. If you find someone obviously marking up prices on limited releases, please don't give these guys your business. Its bad for everyone and only encourages this kind of behavior.

    Damn, Northridge got a lot of Sucaba. In fact now that I think of it, when I was picking up some Deschutes 24, the Brea TW looked up the stock levels at other stores for me, Northridge got over 20 cases of Deschutes 24.
  14. Had it last wk. Awesome beer.

    I'm gonna get another bottle to age.

    There still a few at the Total Wine and BevMo in Torrance.

    The Whole Foods in Long Beach still has it on the shelf...14.99, no limit.
  17. What a tasty beer. Also quite tasty to cook with. Added a little too some chard during the sautee and it came out great.
  18. The guy at T.O. total wine told me to go to Northridge. I hate driving into the valley.
