    Is this still in stores in the Denver area? Was told it won't be making it down to C. Springs (that's horse sh*t). Saw that its going to become part of their regular lineup later this year.

    Last year I felt like Sucks tasted exactly like Pineapples... this year, I didn't think so and I wasn't as thrilled as I was last year.

    Had it at Hops and Pie today and thought it was delicious.
    Sweet, hoppy, and lemony... a pleasant surprise.

    It just showed up in Casper so there's still hope for the Springs.

    Went looking at a few Ft Collins area shops today, no luck with Sucks. Anyone have a line on some more on shelves up this way?

    I was there over the weekend and there was only one sixer of it on the shelves. Can't say for sure if they had more in the back or not.

    I just bought some Sucks at Supermaket yesterday. Bottled 2/17. I did a little happy dance on the way to the register.

    Yeah, it looks like Fort Collins got another round of the stuffs. Saw more at 287 and Wilburs too recently.

    I need more. Was wanting to pick some up tomorrow after work. I work right off 287 in Broomfield. Just a bit North of Rocky Mountain Airport. Anyone know of any places close to there that has it?

    Where did you see a bottle date? As far as I can tell, Lagunitas doesn't do that. Even on cases.

    There's a Julian date printed on the neck.

    Really? I don't remember ever seeing that. I always check Hop Stoopid to see if they've started doing it. I love that beer, but I've been burned by ancient bottles so many times I just stopped buying it. I passed on Sucks at Joy the other day, because I couldn't verify with the clerk that it was actually new production. I'll have to go back and check on it.

    There was a coupon for a free one when you bought a case of Sucks the first time around. All you had to do was send in the original receipt, proof of purchase off the box and $5.99 for shipping and handling.
