    Searched and could not find a thread.

    From FW's facebook page:

    Prepare your palates, our Central Coast Quad is back! 2016 vintage of Stickee Monkee returns this Saturday, June 11th with limited distribution after that.

    Two bottle max purchase per person, $16.99 plus tax & CRV each
    Brewery Emporium (Paso Robles, 10am)
    Barrelworks (Buellton, 11am)
    Brewery Store (Venice Beach, 12pm

    Obviously the post above is a bit old, but we just recieved Stickee Monkee here in the San Francisco Peninsula, and I felt obligated to share so others can go grab this!

    Picked up 2 bottles yesterday at BevMo Hillsdale, $15.99 a pop. They had at least 8 cases.

    Cheers!

    I'm assuming so. While cashing out at the local beer store today (upstate NY), I asked if they received any. The clerk said some arrived this past Tuesday and was gone the same day. Of course it was busy at the time so he could have been just trying to get me out of his hair. /shrug

    This is actually the first Firestone reserve that I stopped buying. It's really a well made beer, just way to sweet for me. Hope everyone else enjoys it this year though.

    They had about 8 bottles in one shop and I missed out. Hopefully, Monkee will still make an appearance in my area.

    If it's WAY too sweet for you then this probably won't matter but for the record I found this years vintage to be considerably less sweet. I'm a huge fan, but it did have almost a cola-like finish in previous years that I'm just not picking up as much...maybe it's just me though.

    I started a thread it was deleted. 2016 was not as sweet as 2015 which for me was a major let down and disappointing. I'll crack open bottle number 2 to truly see what true taste profile. Its was a easy find in so cal shipping 5 bottles back east gotta share.

    I think this years release is best one yet. Granted, my palette has probably changed a little, but I found this years release to be a touch less sweet and a bit more "warm" in the alcohol department that past releases.

    For me IE my personal palatte, Sticky is a no BS very top tier beer.

    I also thought it was too sweet but after waiting 6 months to try my second bottle the sweetness had subsided and it was a very different beer. I bought two bottles this year going to try one fresh and age the other.

    I'm not a fan of anything Belgian but after having the first bottle I scored for almost half price (distributor billed them at 12 a case on the invoice and I was polite enough to tell them $10.99 was not the correct price after they had ran my credit card after waiting for them to enter it in their system and having no idea what I was going to be charged) went back and got the last two at $17.99 each, it's a great 'summer imperial stout' alternative with no real lingering medicinal clove Belgian yeast flavors that make me cringe

    Crazy that you're still waiting in Cali; I've been in Portland this week and I've seen it all over.

    Checked a few more places in upstate NY (capital district), the few who got it in this past week say it was gone same day. On the up side I did manage to snag a couple Parabolas.

    [​IMG] Found some at Pita Kabob Gastro Pub in Visalia Ca. Central Cali. A little expensive at 18.99 but still worth it in my opinion.

    Aside from the BCBS release this is one that I look forward to every year now. It all started at a bevmo when the cashier said "hey, I got this special limited release from FW. Do you want to buy one?" I said yes and that was the end of it. It is definitely my wife's and my favorite FW barrel beer, aside from Double DBA. In fact this year we lucked out and ended up getting 4 bottles. Haven't tried it yet but when we get back from vacation it is definitely going to be one of the first beers we drink!

    Cheers!

    I picked up 2 bottles of the 2015 vintage last year at Finger Lakes Beverage in Ithaca but haven't seen any of this years yet. I also got 2015 Helldorado, 2016 Parabola and 2016 Sucaba there as well. It moves fast but thats to be expected. I know AJs Beer Warehouse in Rochester gets FW Vintage beers but their stock moves even faster because of the larger market.

    Ask around and ye may receive.

    Cheers!

    If you're hunting in NYC, I got bottles last year from Whole Foods and Covenhoven. Just throw a watch on Beer Menus and keep an eye on Instagram/Twitter and you'll get at least one.

    FYI for the guys looking in nor cal. I was in Lodi picking up some dragons milk when the guy stocking the shelves asked if I wanted a bottle of stickee monkee. He said they keep it in back and you have to ask for it. They had 10 more bottles

    I didn't buy one last year when it was available, but I saw a ton of it sitting at the Binny's near me yesterday, so I decided to pick up a bottle. Now to figure out when to drink it.
