    Not sure if you mean the Parabola 13, which was $16.99/bottle or the XII Anniversary from the tap room?

    The bottles at the tap room are way overpriced in my opinion, and they are for on-site consumption only.

    Pretty sure they were priced like:

    XIII: $100
    XIV: $75
    XV: $50

    I bought the gift pack+ 2 parabolas.
    Gonna compare a '12 and '13 after finals woot.

    What does the gift pack contain?

    The gift pack, or "Vintage Set" as they were advertising contained:

    1 - 2012 Parabola
    1 - 2013 Parabola
    2 - FW Proprieter's Reserve Series Rastal Tulip glasses

    They were available for the release party, but I have no idea if they're still available now.

    I know this has probably been mentioned but any idea when this will land in Chicago? Hoping to have my brother snag me one.

    $35 at my local shop. If you're trading though, probably $17 worth of limited widely distributed beer

    The beer buyer at Binny's south loop said tody that it should come in next Tuesday or Wednesday. They're not taking names -- first come, first served. I would start calling on Tuesday.

    Called a few places near me. Got a range of answers from this Thursday to the first weekend in May. My guess is this weekend we should start seeing it. Early next week at the latest

    I went to the Schaumburg Ballpark Brew Fest last night, and Firestone Walker was there. I mentioned to the guy working the taps that I was looking forward to Parabola's release, and he said it will hit Chicago tomorrow. Based on that, I figure all stores will be getting it this week.

    Hope to see it in VA this week! A place that usually carries it is supposed to call me when it comes in. Fingers crossed...

    F-W releases tend to vary widely by distributor 'round these parts.

    Good to know...so perhaps not this week for some? Dunno why it would take that long to show up in the stores, but then again I'm not that familiar with the business of beer distribution.

    Most eagerly awaited beers take more than a week to roll out, though the usual chasm is between city and points further north, south and west. F-W (and Central Waters as well) always seems to take a full two weeks.

    Ok, thanks for clarifying. The last thing I want to do is lead people on with bad information. I just felt what the Firestone Walker rep said yesterday was noteworthy.

    I think most folk appreciate the head's up. Except perhaps for the liquor store and bottle shop employees who will be swamped with calls. ;)

    I've heard from a few liquour stores clerks around that a lot of the deliveries for stores around here (Chicagoland area) got pushed back due to all of the flooding we've had in the last week. My local Binny's just got Stone RIS yeasterday, and that was released almost a week ago.

    Pretty sure Sucaba showed up in Chicagoland a good week or two after the release date, or at least it took me that long to find one. Not sure if Parabola will be the same.

    I was told by my local shop they usually get FW beers two weeks from the release date. Got me 5 bottles of sucaba and hoping to get that many parabolas.

    The USS Chuchitos will be at the cluster fork May 5th. See you there 2beerdogs......I'll bring the Famosa!

    I'm sure it'll follow the same schedule as Sucaba - about 2 weeks later than the brewery release. Can it potentially be this week? For sure, but I doubt it. And nearly every location will have a 1 bottle limit. On the plus side, it's not super-rare so multiple cases usually roll in over the course of 1/1.5 months.

    Back in Jan when I got to tour the Paso brewery (freaking fantastic) they had a gift-pack of the XIV, XV, and XVI for $100ish, maybe $125 in the Visitor's Center.

    Can confirm that I haven't seen it yet in the Bay Area (Northern Cali). Been keeping tabs on the likely carriers and nothing yet.

    Beer Rev was asked by Firestone to not release to shelves till May 15th. So, likely the same case in other shops?
