    I saw Hunterdon moved these to the "What's New" list, so I figured that should be hitting stores soon. Unfortunately, I'm heading back to school on Friday, so, if I can, I want to pick some up before the end of the week. Anyone see any around yet?
     
  2. Haven't seen either anywhere.

    It started hitting Northern NJ yesterday.
     
  4. 3Beans hit some NW (moreso West) and North NJ locations on Monday even.
     
  5. All the normal stores that sell the hell out of Lagunitas said they did not receive any.
     
  6. Hunterdon is shipping to stores this week. Availability at different stores will depend on when they receive their shipments.

    I picked up 3Beans yesterday in Hoboken. Lagunitas Sucks was at the same place.

    I think it was $14 at Hoboken Vine which is about the same as it seems to be everywhere...

    It was $15 but I also had no idea at the time that it was going for $14 everywhere

    edit: Maybe it was $15 after tax. Either way I was blown away considering I hadn't seen a sixpoint 4pk over $10 at that point

    Yeah, probably was $15 after tax (and I got a discount on my overall purchase because I had more than the 6 individual beers)... either way, I knew it was going for about the same everywhere because the guy working there looked it up on the invoice to make sure the price was correct.

    Not too surprised that this one was expensive with Stumptown coffee and Mast Bros chocolate - both are not cheap on their own.

    So the stores that typically receive on monday and tuesday I know of did not receive sucks yet. Some tell me next week, a couple say it should come in tomorrow (Friday). I really need my sucks, palate wrecker is still giving more then my hop fix though.
     
  20. any word on sucks at westfield shoprite or joe canals woodbridge? and how much are stores getting this year are they gonna be sold out in a few days?
     
  21. Max is 1 case of 3Beans and 2 cases of Sucks

    I drive by this place all the time. I really need to stop in. Is it really as good as everyone says?
     
  25. ripps1

    ripps1 Savant (425) New Jersey Aug 28, 2012

    Yes. They have a great selection of beer. Highly recommend it

    Thanks, maybe I'll stop by tomorrow on my way to Hoboken!
     
  27. Maybe you should stop in, and buy some 3Beans. Never know who might wanna try some!

    Guess I just had to wait until the last moment. Several of the Bourbon St. locations by me had both yesterday.

    Supermarket by me in Brooklyn has 3Beans mispriced at $9.99. Just bought out half their stock

    Just had them both on draft at Morris Tap and Grill in Randolph!

    Anyone else underwhelmed by 3B? I bought a 4 pack and 2 singles. Letting my brother buy the 4 pack off me instead of getting his own.

    Did you try it first. I found it rather bitter as it wore on.

    I thought it was just lackluster as far as the "beans" aspect goes.. just like any strong porter/non-thick stout with coffee/cocoa hints..
     
  34. Zimm

    Zimm Savant (490) New Jersey May 18, 2012

    Yes

    Man, I can't find Sucks anywhere. Been looking at a variety stores, with no success.

    I actually love it. Very flavorful Baltic Porter with nice coffee notes. Might be my beer of the year so far.
