Parabola Sightings

Discussion in 'US - Pacific' started by radium, Apr 17, 2013.

  1. It's more common than you think. After the initial hype of seeking it out, most places that have it in the back just don't get asked about it. It happens all the time at WF. You ask for it come a few weeks before the next year's release and they may gave you last year's vintage.

    If you're interested, they have it at Beverage Warehouse for ~$24.

    No Parabola there yet, seems like most of the places I've checked in the area are expecting it next week.

  3. Sunset Beer Company posted that they got some Michael in last week. Was kinda surprised, didn't realize it was even distributed. Sadly, I was at work... Grumble grumble.. .
     
  4. BevMo West Hollywood got 5 cases on friday. No limit when I was there.
     
  5. Nothing at Whole Foods in LB...just checking in.
     
  6. Went to WF El Segundo yesterday, no 2013 Parabola but I snagged their last 2012.

    Nice. I think Parabola is the beer you most bring over to my place, and that's never a bad thing.

    Marc and I are starting our Parabola collection this year with 3 bottles so far.

    Woot! So local BevMos and Whole Foods? Or is each store have their own distro?

    Maakies Zealot (90) California Apr 13, 2012

    I would assume bevmo would get it the same day, I can't speak for em, but I'm placing orders now and got confirmation it's showing up tuesday (sf whole foods) Allocations are sparse this year... buy them quick.

    I know you said SF, but do you know if this same distributor covers north bay?

    Maakies Zealot (90) California Apr 13, 2012

    Nope, FW goes through Eagle up around novato and further north. Not too familiar with them, sorry :-/

    I appreciate the update and will be passing through SF tomorrow. Never been to a WF there and the parking is a cluster, is there a best/easiest one to go to?
     
  23. DOTU

    DOTU Savant (405) California Feb 11, 2011

    There is parking at both WF at California and Franklin and Potrero, but the former is way closer to the bridge.

    every FW limited release I panic because everywhere else gets it before Sac making me think that it will never arrive... I keep telling myself to stop checking but I know I'll be buying some:(

    Anyone seen it around San Jose area? I know Kelly's liquors in SJ and Bobby's Liquor in Santa Clara had it but it was sold out before I had a chance. All my other sources have not received it yet.

    San jose whole foods and bevmos got it last week (wed/thur). I guess the smaller bottle shops did too. :(
     
  32. DOTU

    DOTU Savant (405) California Feb 11, 2011

    Maakies was right on the mark. He had fresh Parabola available by noon at the Noe Valley Whole Foods on 24th St. in SF, with a reasonable 3 bottle limit. Thanks man! I made my way over to the California St. WF and picked up two more for a Michigan BA from behind the cheese counter--ask for it there and they have a two bottle limit.

    Cheers and happy hunting!

    01Ryan10 Savant (295) California Sep 10, 2011

    Yay! Finally in OC. just got 4.
     
  34. Is this a "ha, ha" message, or are you going to share where you picked it up (and why they seemingly have no bottle limit)?
     
  35. Stopped by Bevmo in Oakland today. Guy there said they were supposed to get it in this week, but FSW recalled their order. lol fucking East Bay. Beer Rev didn't have it either.

    oops, sorry. Total Wine, HB is 1 bottle limit. The guy at BevMo HB told me he would sell me an entire case, but I opted for 3 units.

    I'm certain that all BevMo and TW in OC are getting it today.

    TW HB = $13.99
    BevMo HB = $15.99

  38. BevMo Livermore should get it today. A few other spots in the area got it already
     
  39. Got one at TW in Redondo.
