    Could be if Lagunitas doesn't ship more to our area - seems as if only the Northshore boston distributor for Lagunitas got any in this area. My local bar said that Craft promised some to them, so lets hope more comes this way.

    first place I went (in CT) they would only give me a 6 pack from the "back room". Guy said his allocation was small. Then, the other two places I went it was just sitting there for the taking....plenty of it too.

    Am I alone in thinking that last year's batch was better?

    2nd batch hit the Stoneham stores (Rapid, Redstone) yesterday afternoon. I picked up a few 6ers this afternoon @ Rapid & an employee said they were going fast.

    Found some at the Harvest in JP - they had one case on a cart waiting to be put on the shelf. The beer guy said it was right off the truck so should be appearing elsewhere soon.

    WHYM in Portsmouth is tapping Sucks today, so I'm thinking bottles are in-state and should be out next week. Haven't heard anything about Maine yet.

    Not so sure. Saw the recent inventory list from local distributor near me and although they listed the Sucks kegs there were no bottles on the list. I tried to get myself a half barrel but they said it was for "on premises" (bar) customers only. My hopes were sky high for a few minutes there!

    NE CT got a limited drop right before Chrimmas. My shop got 3 cases but they dont think there will be any more. Im hopeful there will be another shipment into the NE market. Last year it was plentiful for weeks....well into the new year....at least that's my recollection.

    Tweeted up L. Knife and the initially told me they wouldn't be getting anymore, then replied again and said they would be getting more and Craft Boston had a large order in too.

    I picked up a sixer at Walsh's in Brighton Center yesterday. The owner said he'd only received a single case.

    It's in Boston. Should appear in the stores this week. The amount, I understand, is not small, but is limited.

    Draft Sucks (in reasonably priced stadium pours) surprisingly @ a local suburban bar near me. So glad the days are gone that I'd need to go to some "elite" Boston beer bar for good beer.

    There was some at Kappy's in Medford. Is this supposed to be that limited this year? Last year places had cases stacked on floors

    Were told that 5 cases is a limit per account. But I wouldn't be surprised if some "important" accounts got more than that. But that's the official word.

    That surprises me. Increased demand I guess? I guess I better buy it up while it's still around

    Had my first bottle of Suck ever last night, what an amazing beer! Hop citrus aroma and taste was out of this world! And it was very fresh, the sixer I got at CBC in Braintree was bottled 351th day of '13 so, only in bottle three weeks!

    We were told 5cs limit as well. Last year I remember being limited as well, but then seeing a bunch more come in after a 2nd release. We have it n at The Vin Bin in Marlboro and Hopkinton right now

    Table&Vine told me today that some order at the warehouse got messed up and their "25 cases" were delayed. Consolation prize was that they had just input Victory Hop Ranch into the system and I was sold the first 4 pack.

    361
    Was in downtown tonite and stopped in packie on Boylston at Coply Square, had a few minutes to kill, glad I walked in the door. One of the smallest stores I've ever been in. However, they had Sucks, dated 361...so no quarrel with the freshness. Purchased a case which was brought up from the basement for me. Sixers in the fridge and some cases in the basement, not sure how much they had...
