    Lutter'd a case at CM Westgate.

    There's still quite a bit.

    They also have Funk Metal and Das Wunderkind.

    Hoping to find some Sucks today in Austin. I'll have to try the CM Westgate.

    Didn't someone say they saw it there yesterday? Are us Houstonians so crazy we pick them dry after a few hours?

    Westgate's Sucks is dwindling quick. Down to about 2 1/2 cases.

    The good news is that hopefully, (I don't know for sure) this year-plus Lagunitas drought is over.

    Has this been tough to find in austin? I'm pretty sure there's some sitting in Pflugerville I've passed on numerous times. I wasn't impressed with the first year's release and never picked up any more.

    If CM Westgate does run out and you're in South Austin... we were at World Market today in Sunset Valley (right down 71 at Brodie) and they had PLENTY of Sucks.

    If you're in Houston and still can't find any Sucks, Central Market on Westheimer had about 10 cases today.

    I just picked up the last 3 single Sucks I could find at the Round Rock World Market for my "build your own 6-pack bundle"...30% discount for members. Good times.

    Yea just kind of a "right place at the right time" thing. I just stop by my normal stops and ask if they have some and if not when they are getting their next delivery...

    No more deliveries of Sucks. From what I heard today (Tuesday is my usual day to buy beer) BEK is depleted in Austin.
    What's out is out. CM Westgate alone went through 20 cases.

    Temple Specs had a half a case when I left this afternoon. I've bought at least a 6 pack at each store I've seen it at. I love this damn beer though.

    I'm really spacing out my case... got 16 left to space over the next month.

    Then, I cry.

    Don't space too long. It's still good, but starting to fall off. I hope it's gradual... Some IPAs fall off a cliff!

    If I told you I'm on my second case since the beginning of January... would you still say I'm spacing too much, lol.

    Sadly, the fresh Hopslam I had on Sunday WAS better. Happily Sucks is not worse than the 100% price difference.

    I hope you have more Hopslam. It ages well for six months. It's neat to track the flavor changes over time.

    Definitely not as power as it was when I first got a hold of it off Bunker Hill HEB. But still tantalizing.

    Holy crap, Growler's in Montrose tweeted they got some more in. I thought I would have to wait a while.
