    Isn't that the same day that Stone IRS is being released? Coffee IRS and Parabola. That is going to be a good week.

    It does make it to the east coast, at least Massachusetts, in small quanities and not for a few months. I usually start seeing it in August in Western MA.

    Not sure what its release date was last year, but it hit NYC/LI around the first or second week of June.

    Since it will probably be at least 2 weeks before the Parabola hits San Diego, there is no conflict in Stone country. :)

    I remember driving to the store to pick up Parabola in IL last year and the temp was 104F. Only remember that because drinking a Parabola that day did not seem appealing! Soooo, this date is moved up significantly form last year then huh?

    Tax man will take most of my money on the 15th and I'll buy Parabola with the rest.

    Heh, it hit Maryland (or Cecil County anyway) in something like early December... but I don't think that's typical....

    I think it was the weekend before July 4th... I remember it being one of those days where you would sweat just by walking outside. Felt like it took for ever to hit the shelves.

    well seeing as our entire allocation last year went AWOL (not including the handful of bottles that was cobbled together and distributed after the fact), here's hoping we get a decent amount in MA this time around.

    I will be purchasing all the bottles in the greater Austin area. Unfortunately others might have the same idea.

    MA went AWOL? I have a store that i'm able to find random gems at and was able to pick up 6 of them last year. Well first 1, then I tasted the best stout I've ever had and bought the other 5. Last years was legendary.

    Ha feels like just the other day we finally got last years Parabola in MA. Apparently the MA allotment got shipped elsewhere last year and they sent us what they could in the end. I love FW beers but starting with the Parabola shitshow last year, and now 16 and Sucaba being way less this year i'm done chasing them around. It could also be the distro but either way it kind of sucks for FW consumers in MA. First world problems I know.

    I just bought a Parabola( last one they had) last night locally. They said they got it in a few weeks ago. So it's definitely already in NH.

    Did NH get shut out of parabola last year when it hit other states or is this just round two?
