    Is this seeing distribution anywhere in CA or is this brewery only?

    My understanding is that this was a brewery only release that is not seeing distro.

    Haha “it’ll see some amount of distro” is what I meant to type. It wouldn’t let me edit. The IG post towards the end

    That's what I figured you were driving at. I think that last statement on the IG post was in respect to regular Parabola though. Any Cali people wanna help out? Us lowly FIBs need to know...

    In reading the comments to that IG post, clearly no distro and sold out pretty much immediately even after cutting limits from 12 to 6. Also, many people on IG are tools. That is all.

    Back on topic: Vanilla Vlad 18, Straight Jacket can, VSOD can all x 1 for Coconut Rye Parabola x 2 plus some local stuff to make up the difference in $ amount.

    They must have held some back, as they had more bottles available yesterday @ Buellton.

    A casino here in Kansas City got a keg and was doing 32 oz crowlers. Apparently kegs are going around. Could be related to Boulevard though.

    There was a keg at a Whole Foods in indy. Not sure if that was due to it having opened just recently, or if that will be their new norm.

    There have been some kegs in distribution (my local got one), but not bottles of Coconut Rye. Also, bottles did sell out the same day at Venice. Since the release day firestone has put a few cases out randomly at their stores. I picked up 2 in Buelton a week or two after the release and the bartender say they just put it out that morning. They always hold some cases back for some reason, they did the same with parabajava in 16 and maybe even 15.
    Regular Parabola is seeing typical distribution as it has in years past.
