    I have yet to try a Lag sucks but from all the hype, its the real deal. I glad Lag is making this a full time brew.

    Yes, I just found out this past weekend that Jubelation was getting Lagunitas. Didn't know about Kelly's. Very cool. Now if we can only get Firestone Walker to come to New Mexico we would have a good selection.

    I wonder if it will happen once they open up in Chicago.

    It won't be available year round though. We sold 40 cases of the last batch in 2 days. They will not be able to keep up.

    I don't think the hype train would be able to keep up that speed though... eventually it would plateau if it were a year-round because people would know it will be on the shelf the next time they're at the store.

    Because it's so limited, people are buying more than a small supply. Heck, I bought a case! I never buy cases!

    Love this stuff! Picked up 2 case on my travels last week. Love that it'll be year round, but the idea of 32 ouncers SUCKS!

    I have places I can pick up most of the Lagunitas offerings but have not seen a single place even selling Sucks yet. Anyone in Pittsburgh area seen it?

    I can think of worse things than having to down a quart of Sucks on a Friday night. Sharing with a friend is not a bad option either and I would love it if my local Safeway would carry it so I can pick one up at my leisure like I currently do with Arrogant Bastard.

    Tony posted this on Twitter yesterday: "We just approved the 32oz glass mold for d boss Sucks bottle! This'll be fun. For a night with a bomber, it'll be 1&done."

    Smokin Joes on the South Side had it on tap a couple days ago. Probably still got it there. Also, I know that a distributor in Washington county is expecting to get some cases tomorrow. So places in Allegheny county should have it to.

    They finally started caring Laganitus products here in Albuquerque. Kelly's liquor has the Sucks and Little Sumpin in six packs. Picked up a couple a few days ago and loved it. Just got back from my No. Cal. trip up to Drakes, Moylans, Laganitas, Russian River, Bear Republic and 21st Amendment. What an incredible time we had. Took 3 days to just get back into the swing of things again. Drinking Pliny the Younger last Sunday night unlimited was an experience I will never forget. Absolutely delicious. Stopped at Laganitus twice and couldn't stop drinking the Hopstupid on draft. Unreal.

    I spoke with my reps last week ... Sucks will be out "before the end of the year" in 32oz bottles in Nor Cal only for a test market. San Diego will be the test market for Daytime 6pk year round. They can barely keep up production on their core stuff, so I doubt they are going to focus alot of time on Sucks or Daytime. They say before the end of the year as I think they are waiting to get their Chicago brewhouse fully functioning.

    Anyone know if sucks sixers are still going to be in the mix in addition to the 32's?

    I wonder how much of this is dependent on the Chicago production facility opening. Many balls juggling Tony is.

    We were lucky that TW had lots of Sucks sitting around until the first week in June. Granted, it was a little 'old' by that time, but it still tasted GREAT!

    I still have one lonely bottle of sucks in my fridge. I can't bring myself to drink it, knowing that once I do it would be near impossible to get it again for another 5 months. Plus someone bet me a case that I couldn't tell the difference between sucks and sumpin sumpin in a blind taste test, cant pass that up.

    It was on firkin at the taproom last week, not sure if that means anything about an upcoming release or if they just did a test batch

    I spoke to a rep in NY this weekend. He said 2014. He also said that for Daytime.

    At least we have Lil Sumpin Sumpin Wild in the meantime.

    Don't worry, Hop Stoopid isn't going to be in 32oz bottles, only Sucks...

    I would say they have at least a similar hop profile. Exactly the same? Well no, no beers taste exactly the same! Win that case!

    Give the Lagunitas IPA some love too :(
    Yes Sucks is my fav but for year round availability and freshness
    and 7.99-$9.99 a sixer its a winner
    I actually prefer it most times to Maximus and Lil Sumpin

    Why are we guessing on this? Tony (Dogtown) reads these threads and hopefully will let us know when we can expect to see it in 32 oz. bottles. Tony?

    I like their IPA also, but still would rank Sucks #1, Sumpin Sumpin #2 over it.
