    We still have some (don't know how much) at Total Wine here in Tucson. $11.99. I bought one (more) last night.

    Limit one otherwise I would've gotten more. I ordered my first 2 online then when I went to pick up they told me it was limit 1 and I could only take one, so I got pissed off since they'd already charged my card so she gave me both :)

    Anybody else get fuck on Dissident this year? I am a very regular customer at my local beer shop, we usually get pretty good allocation, and I usually get first dibs on whatever, but this year I was only allowed one Dissident due to the huge demand. Now I am forced to drink it fresh, because I have never had it before, and refuse to age beers that I haven't tried fresh. I love these beer websites and hate them. Before sites like this little gem existed, BCBS used to set on the shelves for months; ahhh the good old days.

    Will Abyss be the same limited stock as Dissident or does it flow like XXIV?

    I believe it should be on par with Black Butte in terms of availability, but it's more popular than either so we may not see it on the shelves as long. I recall seeing it on the shelves at Whole Foods in February of 11 in Cupertino, for what it's worth.

    It flies off the shelves pretty quickly. It did hang around a little while in some San Diego stores in 2010/11 from what I recall, but it was gone in 60 seconds last year.

    Thanks Philusa and besaunders! I just wasn't sure if I was going to be on the hunt for it like I'm having to do for Dissident. Cheers!

    Going to the only place in the area with rare bottles tonight. If no Dissident there (and there won't be) then I won't be getting any it seems.

    I got one via the Jug Shop Deschutes tasting that's happening tonight. Looks like they're sold out now though.

    Are they going to be sending everything south as well to the Peoria-area?

    Dude in the last 30-days, Colorado had 3F Oude Gueze, 3F Golden Blend, The Dissident, Utopias, Oude Tart, Renegade Elevated Wood, Avery Rumpkin & Odio Equum, GABF and all the events surrounding it. October is not only when I go broke, it's where I go into debt.... (not really, but seriously messes with my budget)

    November brings The Abyss & FW16, as well as Bligh's BW, BA Hibernation, and Bruery 5 Golden Rings, this never ends! lol.

    Some of those plus the Crooked Stave Cellar Reserve are what's ravaging my next credit card bill.

    I hit up my local bottle shop tonight and came up empty in the Dissident, unfortunately. May have to bite the bullet and pay some exorbitant shipping if I really want it.

    The website LetsPour had a couple of limited shipments of Dissident this past week. I believe it was $18.50/bottle. They do limited, short-notice offers so its worth watching.

    I can't get most of these but The Dissident, Oude Tart, The Abyss, FW XVI and 5 Golden Rings will do a big enough number on my bank account that I'll have to keep it secret from my girlfriend (who is usually very supportive of my beer buying)

    Well I failed at grabbing a few bottles for 11.99 from Totalwine when I saw it available online but figured I could wait a few days and grab in person (stupid I know). Davis Beer Shoppe in CA had a few but fairly expensive. Whole foods in Roseville had 4 or 5 bottles still at 15.99 and I bit the bullet on it sadly. Only got 1 Dissident as I am a bigger fan of Abyss and rather save my money for that. Luckily Abyss does get distributed further out (and I would say better availability than BBXXIV just more demand) so I bet I can get my half case out of the Galveston area without having to deal with CA purchases.

    a lot of stores were limited to a case so be happy with what you got. I appreciate a store that has bottle limits because more people get a chance to purchase but at the same time I love places that don't have limits so I can walk out with as much as I want.

    Not very much right here in Bend, Oregon. I was told by more than one local retailer that there was a bottling issue, short fills. Not sure if this has already been discussed or if it is true. Seems plausible. Past releases have sat on the local shelves for months after release.

    I can confirm that there was very little supply. K&L in Redwood City said that the whole Bay Area was limited to 40 cases. I would assume you can extrapolate that to other regions as well.

    Picked up six bottles of The Dissident. There were two cases allocated to the store, which they received on Wednesday. They never have a bottle limit, but beers such as The Dissident typically sit on the shelf for awhile because of the higher price point ($15.99/bottle).

    '


    It will be like Dissident. Was really funny watching people get excited when XXIV was on the shelves and thinking you can trade it for non shelf beers.

    Abyss will be nothing like Dissident. The stores around me get floor stacks of Abyss. Granted every year it seems to sell faster, it is made in much greater volume than Dissident. Two years ago I was buying it well into summer time. Last year it moved quite a bit quicker but still lasted about a month if you looked around.

    I resorted to ordering two online. Hated the shipping fee, but I don't think I'll get it any other way atm. I just have to have it!
