    Is this anywhere in DC yet? I went to Chevy Chase Wine and Spirits the other day and they said they didn't have it. Really, really wanting to try this one as soon as possible. Thanks guys

    Haven't seen the bottles but had it on Tap Friday at Old Line in Beltsville (MD). They also that the Green Flash Bullet. Gotta say and can't believe I am, that Bullet was a touch better than the Sucks and the Sucks was delish!!!

    For what its worth, I called a couple places on Friday that I usually shop at (one in DC and one in VA) and both said it is possible bottles will be here later this week or worst case next week. I can't wait either...

    I've never been to Old Line, do they fill growlers? It would be really nice to share this with some friends tonight.

    Sorry so late on the reply but just got home from work. As to growlers, NOPE. PG County is a slacker on that one as only B-More City and Howard County (either soon to be or has recently) do fills. I heard Mo County was in line to do the same. Hope you went anyway and just "drank your growler there."

    Glad I saw this because I almost went out today in search but figured I have too much beer this week. I'm sure there will be enough to go around when it does hit.

    Was wondering about this. Hopefully it hits when Stone Enjoy By does so I can be spared an extra trip.

    I picked up a six pack in Silver Spring on Thursday and had it on tap at the Black Squirrel on Friday, but haven't seen bottles actually in the city yet. I heard they should land this week.

    Schneider's just tweeted they got some in. I'd imagine other stores will follow suit this week.

    Fenwick Beer and Wine. In typical Montgomery County fashion it was $14.99 a six pack though.

    Just wait because it should be easy to find for the next month or so once it hits. But yes it is pretty damn tasty.

    I think it's certainly worth the $15 price tag, but you'll save $3 or $4 by waiting to buy it in DC. I only bought it because I wanted it for a particular occasion this past weekend, otherwise I probably would've waited.

    Saw it at Schneider's last night. I think it's safe to say that it's hit DC!

    They had ~4-5 cases at TW Sterling today, $8.99/sixer. I imagine it will be at other NoVA TW's today as well.
