Parabola release date announced

Discussion in 'Beer Releases' started by jvillefan, Mar 4, 2013.

  1. Just wait a week or two and then throw it up on the shelves unannounced, 1 bottle limit. A nice reward for some people who come in all the time, and a few others who just luck into it.

    My favorite local craft beer shop uses twitter to announce new beers and for parabola they tweeted at 7:50am on a saturday mornin' that they had "something very limited for sale, come by and grab one!" I thought this was a pretty good strategy because it was a saturday which allowed everyone a chance and it was announced to those devoted enough to following twitter and still refrained from saying "come by for some PARABOLA!"

    I know, they probably think just because they have newer releases it becomes more of a rarity so they raise the price even more

    Some cases floating around the rockies today

  7. I like both these ideas. I saved a few bottles, and will do this with mixed with another limited brew.
    I'm also considering saving the last bottle, and sample it out during the winter.
  8. Got a few calls after this thread...
    Thanks for the calls on this one guys, but we've sold out of the available bunch.

    Sacramento area people:

    Funny story: Local bar owner somehow ends up at Yard House in Roseville to find lonely keg of "palabra"--bartenders words. $7 for a 14 oz pour, pleasant surprise.
  16. When? Today?
