Lagunitas Sucks

Discussion in 'US - Mountain' started by ucsbmullet, Jan 18, 2013.

  1. Is this still in stores in the Denver area? Was told it won't be making it down to C. Springs (that's horse sh*t). Saw that its going to become part of their regular lineup later this year.

    Last year I felt like Sucks tasted exactly like Pineapples... this year, I didn't think so and I wasn't as thrilled as I was last year.

    Had it at Hops and Pie today and thought it was delicious.
    Sweet, hoppy, and lemony... a pleasant surprise.

    I'm in Frederick. Any hidden little stores aroound I-25 that has sucks? Chambers and Lukas are way too far. I'll drive as far as Total Beverage in Thornton but they are out. So if anyone knows maybe some smaller stores between me and Total please let me know and ill call
     
  18. Can't remember where but I just read someone posted yesterday they just got Sucks in again.

    Went looking at a few Ft Collins area shops today, no luck with Sucks. Anyone have a line on some more on shelves up this way?

    I was there over the weekend and there was only one sixer of it on the shelves. Can't say for sure if they had more in the back or not.
     
  27. I just bought some Sucks at Supermaket yesterday. Bottled 2/17. I did a little happy dance on the way to the register.

    Yeah, it looks like Fort Collins got another round of the stuffs. Saw more at 287 and Wilburs too recently.

    I need more. Was wanting to pick some up tomorrow after work. I work right off 287 in Broomfield. Just a bit North of Rocky Mountain Airport. Anyone know of any places close to there that has it?

    Where did you see a bottle date? As far as I can tell, Lagunitas doesn't do that. Even on cases.
     
  34. There's a Julian date printed on the neck.

    joshclauss Savant (315) Colorado Oct 31, 2010

    Really? I don't remember ever seeing that. I always check Hop Stoopid to see if they've started doing it. I love that beer, but I've been burned by ancient bottles so many times I just stopped buying it. I passed on Sucks at Joy the other day, because I couldn't verify with the clerk that it was actually new production. I'll have to go back and check on it.

  38. There was a coupon for a free one when you bought a case of Sucks the first time around. All you had to do was send in the original receipt, proof of purchase off the box and $5.99 for shipping and handling.
