    I bought one from that Hancock HEB by accident. Accident? Yeah, too little sleep somehow crossed the Sucaba and the Parabola in my dead head. I know, I know. Both have same type of box is all I can think. Anyway, now I have one more than expected. Maybe a gift for family or friend... or I drink it too. Figure it out later.

    :) It is a very good one indeed! So good, I've bought a glass at Pinthouse for an acquiantance who wanted to try but let the price scare em. And yeah not a bad oops(?) but already had enough o that one..or so I thought. Not greedy or hoarder. prefer to leave for others that need, but was just one. Did some inventory, some drinking and giving away some extra DR12 and a few others today to coworker. Got a little room. Move along, nothing to see here. Now for the Parobala, be patient self.

    Parabola isn't released until next month...April 12th maybe? I would imagine that any Parabola that makes it here would be a few weeks behind the release date, similar to other west coast special releases that we get.

    It's already label approved since I bought one at Spec's during the initial roll out. I would think that it would get here sooner. Haven't Double Jack bottles been delivered within ~10 days of bottling or am I thinking of a different beer?
     
  21. lokieman

    lokieman Initiate (0) Jan 20, 2011 Oklahoma

    Yea you're right about the label approval...I didn't think of that. Double Jack is produced in far greater numbers than Parabola though so probably easier to get it here faster. I hope it's not much of a delay from release date to our shelves (or behind the counter)...I have a lot more faith in Brown than pretty much all the other distributors in our state so that bodes well for our chances at Parabola sooner than later.

    There were only 2 cases of 2012 Parabola released in Austin during the rollout. I'd expect the 2013 release next month.

    I just want the rest of their catalog to hit here. Want a 6-pack of Velvet Merlin.

    This prompted me to head down there and buy it all.

    They actually had too much to buy all of it, but I tried, dammit! ;)

    Shit I'm really tempted to go grab one right now but can't leave the house as I'm watching the dog currently (this sounds trivial but it's a 5 month old Great Dane with way too much curiosity), may have to risk it.
