    Dude, let's keep that on the down-low. On the other hand, it's not like the Seattle area folks are going to find the Top Foods around Olympia that still have Dissident and Parabola (and even SN Beer Camp) still on the shelves.

    I just went into the Ballard Fred Meyer to get some Abyss and they have lots of cases of the Dissident still hanging around, even a big display of it right when you walk in the front door.

    I saw some in a Whole Foods in PDX as well. It looks like it's pretty easy to get here; there was just a large delay between the brewery release and the distribution.

    Ditto, just got back from there. No Abyss, but I counted 20 cases of Dissident. I hereby retract my previous statement.

    There were bottles in three different locations around the store and cases in two different spots. So that's where the Seattle allotment went!

    Just drank a bottle. Nice and sweet, a little tart. None of that harsh medicinal acidity of the 2010. I like 08>12>10

    Oops posted in the wrong thread. Anyway, can't believe this is so abundant, I'd buy a few more if Ballard wasn't so far away.

    Thanks for the info here guys! Picked up a few bottles of Dissident on Saturday at the Ballard Fred Meyer. There were cases left still. Also picked up a bottle of Abyss from both Bottleworks (last one) and the Kirkland Metropolitan Market (had most of the one case they received left).

    Yep. Saw a display on the floor with cases of it at Pint Defiance last week. I didn't get the impression they would be sellling out of it any time soon (though I guess you never know).

    Was in Beermongers the Monday before Turkey Day, and they still had plenty as well.

    Still a case and a half at Rocky's on 196th in Lynnwood. $14.99 per bottle. The case is still sealed and sitting on the floor.

    Whole Foods Interbay has a display of Dissident as of yesterday - Wednesday. No Abyss though & didn't expect any more in either which doesn't make sense. Book seems to be there will be subsequent deliveries many places that get it.

    Portland Fremont Wholefoods has a couple of Dissidents in the cooler, a handful of Abyss on display, and plenty of Black Butte XXIV (but who doesn't?)
