    Hell, I even tried to clon it when it was gone for the season! I cant wait to refill these 32oz bottles at home.

    Didn't "Dogtown" (aka Tony Magee) reply to another - and now apparently deleted - thread a day or so ago on this very subject and say that the beer has been brewed and will be bottled/shipped soon?

    Anyone else remember that thread? I thought it had been merged into this one, but it appears it was axed completely instead.

    I saw that too. Lost in the merging of threads, I suppose. The good news is that the wheels are definitely in motion.

    This, a million times over.

    I'm more likely to purchase Sucks on a regular basis now. I'd rather buy 2 pints worth when I feel like it, instead of having half the sixer sit for weeks while I drink all the other beer I have laying around.

    I am Ok with the 32 ounce bottle but I wish you had taken the great leap to screw top 40s for the telling the spouce I had one beer honey, honest! Also would be cool for the you tube gomers chugging a Lagunitas Sucks 40!

    It's shitty states like Florida that killed your dream by making any containers over 32oz illegal.

    Only beer. Florida white trash has gotta have their Franzia and 2L bottles of Jack Daniels.

    Because laws make perfect sense!

    So 32 oz is two american pints. I don't see a problem. Split it with someone or drink two pints.

    I think a 32 oz vessel is absurd as the only option. Should be in 4/6 pks too.

    Considering that Tony has already said that part of the reason it's in 32oz bottles is to lower demand, and therefore make it easier to keep up with demand all year... No. No it shouldn't be. I'm guessing they'll still have it once a year in 6-packs for the people who refuse to buy the 32.

    Wait, am I reading this wrong or is he saying that Sucks will be in a 22oz format now instead of the 32's?

    If it's his goal to reduce demand that will do it, guys will think twice before opening one. Somethimes you want 1 not 3.

    You're reading it wrong. He's saying that the glass developed for Sucks by the glass company won't have any custom Lagunitas branding (ala DFH or Green Flash bottles), so other breweries will be able to use the format if they want.

    Hell, here in Ohio most of their bombers are only $4.99-$5.49. Lagunitas has amazing pricing! I just got a growler of Maximus for $9.99! How can people complain about that?

    I don't get the bitching on price--the price is extremely reasonable. I will, however, be drinking less Sucks than I did last year because I'll only drink 32 ounces in one sitting on the weekend. Sucks was my perfect everyday beer last winter--affordable, and in 12oz bottles, so I could enjoy one during the workweek. I hope it's available in 6 packs as well as 32s so I can continue, but I'll still buy it, even if it's not--I'll just drink a bit less.

    But those ever scary urban youth drink 40s!

    It's basically dog-whistle racism, one of the least offensive and harmful dog-whistles, but still one.

    Lagunitas has the best pricing for their bombers, may be the cheapest in WI next to Lakefront's. I'll be being cases of these this year.

    As much as I loved Sucks the first time around, I know I will find myself in this category. Typically, when I have a beer at home, I only have 1. When I crack a bigger bottle (corked Belgian, for example), I'll typically re-cork it and split it over 2 nights. I'm sure the times that I'd buy a 32oz bottle of Sucks for myself are far fewer than picking up a 6-pack and spreading it over a couple weeks. It's a bummer, because I love this stuff. But, it's Lagunitas business decision, so they can distribute it however they want.

    I agree, it's a tasty Ca brew comparable to Alpine Pure Hoppiness perhaps in terms off style. My opinion here.

    I guess this is a comment on my own fondness for beer in quantity but it just always surprises me on a forum of beer lovers how many of them think two pints is too much for a weeknight.

    Are these quarts still on for sometime in October or has that been pushed back? Coz, you know, 9/29/13, just sayin...

    Ps Alesmith IPA finally hit Denver early this mo and at $6.99 a 22 oz bomber I've been drinking one pretty much daily (and / or an Avery Dugana) and with absolutely no complaint about the price. That's more than Tony was talking about for a quart...lagunitas has in my mind been a leader on pricing as much as or even more than on quality, over the years.

    AleSmith IPA is good, but it sure ain't no Sucks. Can't wait for this to hit Denver.

    I pictured this having a swing top like a 30oz growler. I don't care though, if I open a bottle I'm drinking it. I like to set the cap or cork on top to trap the carb while I enjoy my pour.

    It is going to a pretty standard looking "steinie quart" bottle, crown-capped, if the image on their van is accurate.


    Quarts were once the second most popular beer bottle size in the US. Of course, that was in the era when one got a "cents per ounce" discount for buying a larger sized bottle over the smaller 12's...

    Talked to a rep last week and he said Cali might see 32oz bottles in Dec and they weren't rolling them out until Feb to other states. Also said that 6packs will be back this winter for the last time. I don't know if this is accurate at all, has anyone heard anything similar to this?

    Last six pack run, that sucks imo. For me personally, I'm glad its going year round. However, I bought 2 cases worth of Sucks sixers last winter, always very fresh too. I rarely buy cases of a particular beer. These big bottles I will most likely pick up here and there, but nowhere near as often as the six packs. Not to mention that these quart bottles will most likely not turn over as quickly as a limited 3 month run would which makes it harder to get the beer fresh. If this beer went to a late December to early March release annually in sixers, I honestly could care less about it going year round. Worth the wait each year for fresh beer in a convenient size. It's a very puzzling decision by Lagunitas but I digress.

    I love beer, but sometimes I just want a single beer, not two pints of an 8% DIPA. What's so surprising about that?
