    Or maybe they are so into the craft beer thing, that they ignore the trend of the day beers to focus on well made beers that offer value and a great experience.

    To you guys debating over whether or not 32oz of "Sucks" is too much, it's a moot point because Lagunitas is no longer planing to do the 32s not for quite a while at least. I personally am kinda bummed out by that because I like the idea of drinking a "hood" sized bottle of good beer. It would also be kinda convenient to just bring one big bottle rather than a few 12oz-ers. For those who wanna know, my source is an email from Lagunitas.

    I am sure you are not lying, but could you give us a sample bit saying "Lagunitas Sucks Will Not Be In 32 oz Bottles next year"

    Personally, I would love to see it go to 6 packs of 12 oz bottles.

    Here ya go.

    "At this point, it’s not looking like we will do 32’s of Sucks in 2013. As far as San Diego is concerned…well once we figure out when we’ll have Sucks, we can let you know when you’ll see it."

    That was about two weeks ago and it appears that they don't have even a tentative release date for the sixers.

    From the discontent and ill-concern of that message,it seems that Sucks is becoming a "Maybe".

    Last night on The Brewing Network the brewer of Lagunitas said that Sucks has been brewed and is in the fermenters! He did not mention container size for this release.

    They don't have the bottling line for it yet, so for now it's in 12ozers. When the new bottling line is complete, we shall see a different format.

    I want it available in six-packs year-round regardless. Easily my favorite of their brews...

    And there was much rejoicing.

    Lagunitas just doesn't make bad beer. They make exceptional beer at very fair prices.

    Seconded. The only available one is the Bear Republic Red Rocket (it isn't *that* hoppy though). http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/610/1655

    Hello. Looks like the Chicago area got its load in today. Picked up a case; left a boatload. It's 7 days old! Yipee! Thanks.

    Asked in Lansing today, DJ at Goodrich hadn't heard it was coming soon (actually hadn't heard that it was being released again at all). Heartened to hear that it's in Chicago!

    Tastes great. I only picked up a sixer but will be going back for more deliciousness. I do believe it tastes an awful lot like the Waldo's ale from 4/20.

    They need to phase out their standard IPA and this their norm.

    I think that would make a lot of sense. I don't know if they'd be able to pull it off though - I think I remember Tony Magee saying that they had bought out the workd supply of one of the Sucks/Leftovers hops with last years' batch (which was fairly small compared to how much of their IPA they make.)

    My wild ass guess is that there are some NZ hops (Motueka?) in there.

    We buy more sucks then IPA here on BA, but for the general public who enjoys craft beer but is not obsessed it is in no way the same. Beers like IPA are where all the breweries profit come from. Maximus would be a more logical choice as they are both DIPA's and a easier switch. But I like Maximus slightly more... Same amount of hops (when Fresh) but a much bigger malt backbone which I enjoy.
