    I thought it was gonna be 32 oz. format?
     
  5. God, I hope they put it in that size as one of the formats. I would feel like a baller with one of those.
     
  6. Screw the summer and the fall. Bring on the end of 2012 and more Sucks!

    It sucks we have to wait that long for some Sucks, but I guess we have to suck it up!

    Glad they realized what a phenomenal brew they have on their hands.
     
  9. I'll agree, this is good news. There are plenty of IPAs and DIPAs on shelves already so here's another. (better than most for sure)

    I wish they'd brew their Imperial Red year-round. There is a shortage of QUALITY widely available hoppy Red beer out there currently IMHO.

    Lagunitas has really stepped up with some of their new stuff. I'd like to see Pils/ IPA/ Pale go and make Sucks, Imperial Red, Brown Sugga year round.

  11. I imagine those 3 beers probably make up 95% of their overall sales. I see where you're coming from, though, I've become less enamored by IPA over time but it's still a quality affordable go-to.

    Yeah, I'm guessing most of the people that buy their IPA, Pils, and Pale are not really into the whole craft beer thing, just looking for a tasty, affordable beer.

    Way sold. My spot never got any of the leftovers so it ended up just a tease. Glad it will be back for good.

  22. And their new brewery is opening up in Chicago next year as well, which is where I just moved. I could get used to this!
     
  23. Sucks was awesome, but I really can't wait any longer for my Shutdown fix! C'mon June.......

    Sucks was really awesome, taken blind it competes with the highest rated DIPA's.

  28. I would swear I saw an interview where the IPA makes up a gigantic chunk of their sales. Personally, I dont like it.
     
  29. Now if only Nugget Nectar went year round...

    Huh? I thought year-round meant, like, year round. Y'know, not a seasonal, but YEAR ROUND.:mad:

    It said that it wont come out again until winter, but then it will move into year round production.

    I think someone was asking when this year it would be released for it's new year roundness...

    I think it's so popular because it's more readily available, at least in my area (Mid-Atlantic/NY). My local grocery store stocks it, so it probably appeals to the casual beer drinker looking for something that's a step up from Natty Ice.
