    Where is it? I saw it at Twin Liquors a few weeks back. Have not seen it again. Not Gabriels, not Specs, not HEB. What gives. This is one of my favorite brews.

    Not sure about SA, but in Houston it's started disappearing off shelves. I'm guessing we didn't get that much.

    Seems to be gone in Austin too.

    There is a definite lack of Lagunitas love in Texas this year. At least I've been able fo find Little Something Something on a regular basis.

    I'm afraid the Brown Shugga ship has sailed. I got about five cases this year, and it was gone fast. Just waiting for Sucks now.

    Even the Sumpin Sumpin Wild is on the shelf in a few places. Both very tasty.

    Flooded the Houston market when it first popped out.

    Surprisingly it has disappeared from most places completely.

    I picked up a case of this last time I was in San Antonio because it was IMPOSSIBLE to find in Austin (most places only got 1 case). That was 2 months ago though.

    Little Sumpin' Wild is gone in 6-packs, but I still see bombers all over the place (gas stations in S Austin... Specs Brodie).

    Plenty of their regulars though, including Little Sumpin' Wild. The brewery is expanding though (including distro in all 50 states), so I can give them a break though. Seems spread a little thin on limited (which are still brewed on their old, smaller system, not the new one, IIRC)

    I missed the ship on this one. Didn't even know it was here. Any idea when Sucks will hit the shelves?

    Found one lonely sixer at Twin Liquors. Does not taste like I remember and seems a bit boozy. Strange. Oh well....I'll wait for Lagunitas Sucks now.

    LAgunitas was the first IPA I drank, back when I thought I was a big timer drinking shiner bock. Thought it was aweful. Now I'm craving a hop stoopid and czech pilz.
