    Are you sure it's sold out up where you live? According to the thread in the beer release forum, it's not scheduled to be released until December. I haven't seen it anywhere down here in Oregon yet.

    I might be completely f'd up on my info now that I think about it...the guy at Total Wine & More told me someone bought it all and said they werent going to get anymore...maybe he was mistaken. When he told me that it prompted me to go on a city wide beer search to get some before everywhere else got scooped up by these greedy bastards he was talking about...not it makes more sense that he was just mistaken and that some guy didnt go around any buy thousands of dollars worth of Sucks...phew! :)

    I just called the distributor and they said they have 6 packs and kegs of the sucks coming soon but they did not know about the 32oz bottles...whatever it will be here soon

    Do you know if any 6packs are coming? I would way rather pay $10-11 for 6 pack than $7 for a 32oz bottle, thanks. When i was in CA last week i only saw 32oz bottles so i am not hopeful on 6packs

    Chuck's got 6-packs yesterday, limit one per customer (for now anyway).
    I agree, I have little interest in 32oz bottles.

    If it's the same as TW in Lynnwood, I don't think it's 21+. I know I've taken by daughter into Bevmo a couple times.
    I really hope this isn't limited here this year like it was in other parts of the country last year. I remember seeing piles of Sucks everywhere last winter. As it should be.

    I got some at Bottleworks the other day. I got the last full 6-pack in the fridge by the door. There was a partial 6-pack with 3 bottles left in it as well.

    Sales rep said he didn't think that 32 ounce bottles are coming to Washington. Very tragic

    I bought the last sixer of Sucks at the Juanita Kirkland Safeway a few days ago, which is the last place I thought I would find it. I think the manager there is trying to get me to stop saying it's by far the worst grocery store beer selection in Kirkland. He's doing well, but the challenge is still on.

    How is it drinking? I have some on the way from NoCal...because my distro is horrible. We might get this batch of Sucks...maybe in February.

    I've seen it at Safeway in Issaquah and North Bend. The first time, in North Bend, I didn't buy any, because I just have way too much beer at home already and there was plenty on the shelf. Then I went back two days later and it was all gone. Still some in Issaquah, though. (Think BevMo in Issy had some as well.)

    For Portlander's- Fred Meyer on Hawthorne and Zupan's on Belmont both had fully-stocked shelves of Sucks as of yesterday afternoon. Both were at the $9.49 range for a sixer.

    Excellent news. Will look to see if we have any down here in Eugene this week as well.

    Any word of any place around town that has this on tap yet?

    maybe it is just me (i have been eating a lot of ultra hot sauce so maybe my pallet if messed up) but this years batch does not taste as good as years previous. It has less overall "tropical" fruit hop character and was just slightly different IMO...
    PCC Fremont, $11 6packs, ask a worker for it because they are currently in the back and not on shelves yet

    I was somewhat unimpressed as well, but it's not like I had last years recently to compare.

    Safeway on Kent East Hill also has tons. Might as well get some more...

    Sometimes it's nice working in South King County where people don't care...
