    Bout to make a trip up to Mass this week for some Nugget Nectar. Since moving from Springfield though, I've been missing out on all the Firestone Walker stuff.
    Special release-wise, what's available in Mass? Sucaba? 15(stilll) or 16? Parabola?

    No chance on Parabola, MA got very little this year. New Sucaba hasn't hit yet, but some people have said recently they've seen some old lying around. 16 came and went pretty fast at the places I frequent, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if some smaller stores have the anniversary around.

    Some stores on the Cape still have some DDBA. Might be a Sucuba lying around somewhere in the South Shore too.

    Saw DDBA at McAloons in North Andover last week. I haven't seen Parabola, Sucuba or 16 in a while.

    As others have mentioned, DDBA is popping back up again in a lot of spots. I'd be surprised if you can find anything else other than last year's sucaba besides that.

    I know the reserve series gets a ton of hype, but if you haven't had it already, Wookey Jack is a MUST purchase. I buy a bottle every few weeks or so. IMO the best beer of 2012 and a great price point ($7 bomber).

    Hop Yard IPA at the Yardhouse is the best FW beer I've had.

    Pretty bummed that there's no 16 hanging around. 15 and 14 hung around forever.
