    I found some Sucks at Tap 25 last weekend ... just in regular 12oz bottles in their fridge. I had one and it reminded me of Racer 15. I got two more bottles to go and tasted it again next day and found that perhaps they were old bottles but I could not find a date or any stamp on them anywhere. Still tasted good even if they were old, which you typically can't say for certain IPAs.

    They have a Julian date stamped on the bottle neck :)

    OK well I did look for that too. I'll have to check again, maybe look a bit harder. Those black ink on brown bottles don't show up too well! thanks

    How would it not be old? It hasn't been in production.

    Talked to a Lag rep in northern VA last week, he echo'd what was in this thread, 32s as soon as possible on a trial basis in select markets: CA, if successful, Chicago.

    Everyone else for the time being, 6 packs of Sucks, when it usually comes out. Works for me!

    Good. For a beer I know I love, I don't see the point of purchasing it in 32oz. format unless I want to play some Edward Quartyhands.

    Sucks as old as I see some Stoopids on the shelf are not, what people who are praying, are praying for.

    Yeah, we have Shugga already, too, I'm just far more excited for Sucks. Still, Shugga is drinking as good as ever.
