    It hasn't hit stores in a few weeks, the last bottles I saw were 11/26 or so at the usual suspects in OB. That said, check out Liticker's on Voltaire, they generally have it in (the bottles may be older though).
  3. Hit up Vista Wine and Spirits. They typically have it when it comes out. As the last poster said most bottles I have seen are from the 11/26 batch.

    They are very consistent with fresh batches and cheap pricing. I've bought some bottles there that were a couple days old.
  6. If you're going to be in Escondido, just go to Stone and drink it on tap.

    Or head to San Marcos and drink it up at Churchills.

    They're already getting cleaned out too quickly. No need for any new customers
