Has anyone seen or heard anything yet? Hoping this will be the year I get my paws on a bottle.
I have not seen anything yet, prob will be in May sometime.
Here's a thread from a few weeks ago:
Speculation is anywhere from May to June like nesarebad said.
Ah I didn't see that. Well hopefully south and north jersey don't have much of a time different in terms of distro. Hopefully we see it real soon.
I am still waiting for Sucaba in centeral NJ to hit the shelves.
I saw Sucaba in Long Branch about two weeks ago.
Might be waiting a while...
Not sure where you're at in central jersey, but i saw it in brick back in February.
I was talking about bridgewater, somerville area in NJ
I grabbed a bottle of Sucaba around the march time frame. Picked it up in Somerset, Cedar grove liquor stores if I remember correctly.
From what i have found out my area and a 10 mile radius of the area got two kegs and no bottles so far. Plus i wish NJ would get bottles of DBA from Firestone Walker
If I see any around the Somerset/bridgewater Area I will let you know.
So is it fair to say that we won't know when this is coming until someone sees it on the shelf somewhere?
I was at Wine Library in Springfield on Saturday, and there were 2 bottles of Sucaba left. Well, there were three, but one of them is on my table right now. If you're never been there, it's an amazing store. Graham (the beer manager) said he has not gotten any good intel on Parabola arrival yet, and he's one of those guys who will tell you what he knows, not just make shit up to hear himself talk.
Was told by Nash(who receives all FW for the state then sends it to the other distributors) that they're prepared to not have it available until September. Pretty sure they said the same thing last year. So lets hope for June like last year.
NJ would be the ones to get shafted
from what I understand it is on its way to NJ. NYC just arrived it from what I understand.
Konrad ships theirs next week for Camden/Gloucester counties
Mt Laurel W+S has several DBA's left from last year
Last two times I was in NJ I saw DBA at the Spirits in Middletown.
You most likely saw the Double DBA.
I have never seen DBA here in NJ only Double DBA
You're right, sorry about that. Misread the post.
I wish NJ got DBA that beer is so good
Where did you hear this? It isn't even in Konrad's warehouse yet.
According to the Firestone Walker Northeastern beer distro manager's twitter, Parabola arrived in NJ less than a week ago and is set to ship to stores this week. But I haven't seen or heard anything as of yet.
From Konrad. I
I haven't seen anything yet, I have one store going to call me when they get it in apparently. I'm going to stop a one place today and ask cause I know my buddy in NYC got two yesterday so it should be soon and next week at the latest.
Anyone heard anything else?
Came out last week in Burlington county.
mmm looks like i'll be making some calls than.
Apparently it was just JC Delran. None of the other guys got it yet. Weird.
I checked a few places in Somerset County (By work) and in Morris/Passaic County by home and nothing. I did score 2 bottles of Sucuba at Fairway in Woodland Park. There was 2 more left on the shelf.
No record of Konrad receiving theirs yet.
How is this info obtained? Can you call them to find out
I was told that it probably depends on the distributor. Stores in North Jersey that use Hunterdon for distro got theirs on Tuesday. Stores in Central Jersey who have Nash for distro are apparently not getting any until July. I talked to Joe Canal's in Woodbridge and Wine Library in Springfield and they both said July.
Doesn't Joe Canal's in Woodbridge/Iselin use Hunterdon though?
For some reason, not for this limited release beer. At least that is one of their staff told me today.
Hunterdon does not distribute fireatone walker at all, its hughgrade north and south, nash and i forget the other ones for south jersey
I honestly don't know how it works in NJ, but I did think that distributors had breweries, and if a store wanted a brewery's products, they had to deal with the distributor who repped them. no?
