you know how much was 13?
Not sure if you mean the Parabola 13, which was $16.99/bottle or the XII Anniversary from the tap room?
The bottles at the tap room are way overpriced in my opinion, and they are for on-site consumption only.
Pretty sure they were priced like:
lol yeah, meant XIII. Holy crap that's expensive.
I bought the gift pack+ 2 parabolas.
Gonna compare a '12 and '13 after finals woot.
What does the gift pack contain?
The gift pack, or "Vintage Set" as they were advertising contained:
1 - 2012 Parabola
1 - 2013 Parabola
2 - FW Proprieter's Reserve Series Rastal Tulip glasses
They were available for the release party, but I have no idea if they're still available now.
I wonder how much worth is the 2012 parabola now...
New York soon....come on, lets go...
That is hawt.
I know this has probably been mentioned but any idea when this will land in Chicago? Hoping to have my brother snag me one.
GUATE?!? Que pasa vos?
I'm gonna go with 16.99.
$35 at my local shop. If you're trading though, probably $17 worth of limited widely distributed beer
Damn..I should have drove up. It was a two bottle limit in Buellton!
The beer buyer at Binny's south loop said tody that it should come in next Tuesday or Wednesday. They're not taking names -- first come, first served. I would start calling on Tuesday.
Anyone seen this in Northern California yet or know an ETA?
Called a few places near me. Got a range of answers from this Thursday to the first weekend in May. My guess is this weekend we should start seeing it. Early next week at the latest
Thanks for the update, I'll be looking for it when I go out
any sightings in Chicago yet?
Wish we could get this in Columbus or Pittsburgh...
I went to the Schaumburg Ballpark Brew Fest last night, and Firestone Walker was there. I mentioned to the guy working the taps that I was looking forward to Parabola's release, and he said it will hit Chicago tomorrow. Based on that, I figure all stores will be getting it this week.
Hope to see it in VA this week! A place that usually carries it is supposed to call me when it comes in. Fingers crossed...
F-W releases tend to vary widely by distributor 'round these parts.
Good to know...so perhaps not this week for some? Dunno why it would take that long to show up in the stores, but then again I'm not that familiar with the business of beer distribution.
Most eagerly awaited beers take more than a week to roll out, though the usual chasm is between city and points further north, south and west. F-W (and Central Waters as well) always seems to take a full two weeks.
Ok, thanks for clarifying. The last thing I want to do is lead people on with bad information. I just felt what the Firestone Walker rep said yesterday was noteworthy.
I think most folk appreciate the head's up. Except perhaps for the liquor store and bottle shop employees who will be swamped with calls.
Anyone know when this will hit NYC?
I've heard from a few liquour stores clerks around that a lot of the deliveries for stores around here (Chicagoland area) got pushed back due to all of the flooding we've had in the last week. My local Binny's just got Stone RIS yeasterday, and that was released almost a week ago.
Pretty sure Sucaba showed up in Chicagoland a good week or two after the release date, or at least it took me that long to find one. Not sure if Parabola will be the same.
thank you for the information. it's totally noteworthy. let the Parabola hunt begin!
Anyone from the Seattle area found bottles in stores yet?
I was told by my local shop they usually get FW beers two weeks from the release date. Got me 5 bottles of sucaba and hoping to get that many parabolas.
Can some one quote my post if they see it in Philly? Thanks!!!
The USS Chuchitos will be at the cluster fork May 5th. See you there 2beerdogs......I'll bring the Famosa!
I'm sure it'll follow the same schedule as Sucaba - about 2 weeks later than the brewery release. Can it potentially be this week? For sure, but I doubt it. And nearly every location will have a 1 bottle limit. On the plus side, it's not super-rare so multiple cases usually roll in over the course of 1/1.5 months.
Back in Jan when I got to tour the Paso brewery (freaking fantastic) they had a gift-pack of the XIV, XV, and XVI for $100ish, maybe $125 in the Visitor's Center.
Can confirm that I haven't seen it yet in the Bay Area (Northern Cali). Been keeping tabs on the likely carriers and nothing yet.
your avatar is awesome
Beer Rev was asked by Firestone to not release to shelves till May 15th. So, likely the same case in other shops?
Why so long? A month later is a long time
