    Has anyone seen or heard anything yet? Hoping this will be the year I get my paws on a bottle.

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
