    That's strange, I show no inventory there. Not even a beer named Sucaba (or Abacus or anything close under Firestone Walker).

    Use the link earlier in the thread and do that whole select store first, close window, then re-click link thing I mentioned. I've been doing this to watch stock levels in La Jolla since last night before placing my order this morning.

    EDIT: Just checked and getting a no inventory message now. Hope you were able to get some pmarlowe

    BevMo Oceanside had 2 cases today in the back. You had to ask for it. 2 bottle limit. $15.99 (minus BevMo discount). I paid a little over $32 for the 2 bottles including tax.

    my local shop that has gotten a case of all the boxed beers for the past 2 years - no

    They went through 4 cases of it that quick? The guy told me to come back late afternoon today when i went last evening. I went back at 1030 this morning knowing no way they would last that long

    Yeah, because the beer guy sold an entire case to a friend of mine! Jerk...

    besaunders Initiate (0) Nov 8, 2007 California

    Your friend, the beer guy, or both? I'd be curious to know which beer guy it was. The guy that told me they got a case and sold it all didn't mention it was to one buyer, but then again he didn't say it wasn't...

    I'm happy with my one bottle of Sucuba. And to go along with one bottle of BA Bigfoot! Will keep for later.

    Science bless Firestone Walker. I was able to grab two bottles from Bevmo last Friday, and three more from the same Bevmo yesterday. FW's ability to produce such a world class beer in quantities where you don't have to scramble or wait in lines to obtain it is a breath of fresh air as ever increasing numbers of beer geeks compete for the same limited supply of oxygen.

    People still compete for it when it first comes out in San Diego. For example, tyris's douchenozzle friend that bought an entire case from Bristol Farms (who shouldn't have given them the entire case). Luckily, we have certain large organic grocery store chains with beer guys that will "bleed" out these beers at a slow rate, meaning that you usually can pick up a bottle or two on a normal grocery trip.

    I popped open a Sucaba 2013, and found it a bit harsh, hot, whatever you call it. I finished the bomber a day later, and found it a lot better. I can't imagine that a little oxidation helped, so it must have been one of those taste variation things.

    It began trickling in to SD last week, but there are still places I know have not received it yet. Be patient, San Diegans.

    I saw 4 bottles for sale at gas station/liquor store yesterday. They were priced at $19.99. They also had DDBA and 16th Anniversary.

    I know that a few of the "independent" places are expecting shipments next week. As long as you get comfortable with the timing of it, I like this better. Let the real dedicated grab up the first batches, then swoop in later for the subsequent rounds.

    ^^what he said^^ Typically brawny BA Barley - bit of a hot mess, overly bitter hops, likely smooth out in a few month to taste great.
