    Do you happen to know who distributes them in NJ? And that's pretty quick compared to Sucaba.

    Peconic Beverage in Southampton has about 12 bottles of Sucaba, 2013. They had no idea about Parabola. When I get back to Manhattan Sunday Ill check with my usual guy......we'll see.

    Saint Charles got cleaned out pretty quick. The last place I saw it at was the Geneva Sav Way but it might be slim pickings at this point.

    Origlio Beverage in Philly who distributes FW acted like it could be weeks. :[ I just called today.

    Pinole and Albany BevMos did not get any Parabola today. Albany acted like it was unlikely that they'd see either Parabola or Stone IRS at this point, having thus far received neither. Pinole still had Stone IRS in stock (picked up 2 more and there were more behind on the shelf, but I'm not sure how deep that stock goes).

    Apparently Geary in SF has some Parabola at 1 bottle/customer limit. Not sure if it's a BevMo location or some other place on Geary, but it's worth looking into if you are in/around SF and want Parabola.

    Nothing in Northridge! I hear we might not even get any even though were two hours from SLO.

    Scored two in the West Suburbs of Chicago. $20 a piece a two different liquor shops. Both shops sold out of their allotment within 24 hours.

    Just stopped by my local shop, said he spoke to the distributor and they are "expecting to deliver in August." However, anecdotally, the guy said that they say this every year and end up delivering in early June, and once, early July. Also, he found a bottle of Sucaba for me that someone didn't claim. All in all, a useful trip.

    Might be a dumb question, but does anybody know how much Parabola was released this year. Cause the bottle I picked up last night had #004 on it. Just curious, thanks either way : )

    Pretty sure the bottle I had of 2012 had #003 on it, and the bottle I've had of 2013 had #004, so I'm guessing it's numbering of releases (someone confirm?). The bottles say 3500 cases, so at 12 bombers/case, that's 42000 bottles of Parabola unless I'm misinterpreting it.

    I was thinking that was a possibility too, I just wasn't sure how many release there had been. Thanks for the response

    Los Angeles and Riverside got it before Orange County (by a few weeks). And my friend who lives in Ventura County, 2 hours closer to FW, still hasn't found a drop. Boy, distribution is very logical.:confused:

    Yeah its pretty quick. I called stores and they said its in their systems. I believe High Grade distributes their stuff and maybe Nash.

    They had it last year for about $20. I also checked on Thursday night and they did not have any.

    My local Whole Foods finally got theirs in- picked up 5 bottles. Had one today. Wow.

    Just finished my only bottle, and I kinda hate the fact that this is most likely the only time I'm going to be able to enjoy this beautifully crafted BA RIS til next year. The hype is well deserved in my opinion!

    Randomly stopped by a local bevmo a few days ago and grabbed a couple bottles. I've had it on tap recently so I'm gonna hold these for a while.

    In most of Jersey, it's Nash. They hold onto it for a bit before releasing and decide each year where to send it. Again, anecdote from local shop beer guy.

    Agreed. I hear the same from my beer guy. However, two beer shops I go to told me it's in their system and their deliveries from Nash and High grade are this week Mon and Tues. Can't wait to grab as much of this brew as possible.

    i'm stalking and calling 10 stores in my area all this week.

    So douche who is the biggest nerd ever at my one local yesterday tried telling my GF that they already got it in and out. She questioned when he said Early April. .. I really don't think he was expecting the response he got from her figuring she was just some stupid girl who didn't know anything about beer, boy he wasn't aware the training and knowledge i've drained into her head!

    Are there any places in the Denver area that have Parabola left? I was able to snag a couple last week, but I don't think that all of the stores got their shipment.

    Via FW's Northeast rep, Parabola hit distributors May 3 in NY and NJ. Shipments also received for MA, RI, and NH (either same-day or yesterday). Most retailers should begin selling it tomorrow thru the end of the week.

    Which hopefully means it'll be hitting D.C. in the not too distant future. Thanks for the heads-up; this is great news!

    This was the store in Redwood City (San Mateo County). I'd been badgering the guy there for weeks so he called me to say it had arrived before it even hit the shelves.
