    I'm not saying that 19 days isn't fresh, especially from CA but, we can always hope for fresher beer. Doesn't mean we'll get it. So like I said, I hope we don't get the 005 bottles in 2 weeks or so.

    Bought 12 last night that were bottled on the 13th. I had a six of the 05s earlier, so they appear to be refreshing.

    From what I understood fresh, and I actually saw more of it at the beer store on my block (and they rarely get anything special in)

    Just take a bit of a trip to Baystate Food and Spirits in Brookline. $10.99/sixer and case discount offered. Btw, love Quasimoto too. Swing by and introduce yourself!
    Cheers,

    Any more around?

    What really "sucks" is when someone comes into a store with cases left & they buy it all :( That ain't right- bad beer karma :(

    Wine Gallery in Brookline had a couple of cases left.

    saw someone today at Julio's in Westboro walk up with a case. From the look on the shelves it looks like they had just filled their beer stock and had quite a bit. You might want to call first though...

    Granite had plenty yesterday, I would guess 10+ cases

    Oddly, they had it at Goretti's market in Millbury, MA last time I was there. Place used to have nothing but BMC then I pass through to grab some flour and WHAM Sucks is on the shelves.

    Wegman's in Northborough has some in now. I picked up 2 6 packs today.

    Love finding this at off the beer geek radar shops - and they don't care that I buy them out. A great beer at a reasonable price.

    Ball Square Fine Wines in Somerville got a shipment in late last week. I am guessing they will have some left. I was last there Friday and they said they got 3-4 cases I believe.

    Dools9 Jul 5, 2011 Massachusetts

    Anyone have any idea of how much longer this stuff will be around for? Every time I think its all done, it pops up on shelves again.

    I heard this was the last batch that stores are getting.

    jbertsch Dec 14, 2008 Massachusetts

    Me too. I bought a sixer from the previous batch, which wasn't super fresh anymore, only because I thought that would be the last of it. Then just about the next day Craft Beer Cellar and Julios posted they just got some in. I definitely let out a big Homer Simpson "DOH!!"
     
  26. Dools9

    Dools9 Jul 5, 2011 Massachusetts

    How's it hold up with a little time on it? I haven't had it older than about 3 weeks so far.
     
  27. jbertsch

    jbertsch Dec 14, 2008 Massachusetts

    Not bad at all. It's not that old...it's at about 2 months. It's just that I, like you, had been drinking these at around half that age at most and really loved its freshness. I notice the hop profile lost its note of pine that I sensed before, but the tropical juiciness is still all there...it's just rounder. And the malt is more noticeable now, so in the end it's something that reminds me of Avery Maharaja. Still delicious.

    Well folks, if anyone is looking for the new/last batch of Sucks (Bottled 2/6/13), look no further than Gasbarro's in Seekonk! However don't you dare look in the craft beer section. Oh no no no. You must travel over to the dark side towards the endless stacks of Anheuser-Busch garbage, and stuck in between the towering cases of Smirnoff!!! THERE, and ONLY there will you feast your eyes on the liquid gold that is...Lagunitas Sucks! Let it be yours if you accept the search!

    Just picked up some 048 right now, so I think 037 isn't the final batch!

    I just got in a few more cases at The Vin Bin in Marlboro. One of my favorites this year.

    If you go a couple towns over to RI there are a few places with it. I saw probably 6 6ers of sucks yesterday at park square liquors in north smithfield. they had bcbs there too

    If you're in the Brighton area and still looking, several days ago Walsh Wine and Spirits (Washington St, Brighton Center) had plenty.

    Any one spot the more recent batches on the south shore? I heard their were some March batches floating around the area.
