    I suspected as much. Something weird is going on in the La Jolla store - I suspect they held most of it back, and are only giving bottles to their buddies at this point.

    Beverage Warehouse in Playa Del Rey still had 1.5 cases when I was there the other day.

    Just bought one at Sorrento Wine and Spirits in San Diego (Mira Mesa). Love that store.

    I recall last year they were trying to sell them at around 21-24 per bottle. Which is why I passed on them quickly.

    Got 2 cases in at WF in Berkeley. Not out on the shelves, have to ask for it. Glad I was able to finally track some down.

    Murrieta Barron's still has 4-5 on the shelf. Go buy them so I don't spend anymore money. I feel like I have to buy one every time I go in and they are still there.

    I'm heading up to SF this Sunday and I'm going to make a pitstop to Firestone. Any idea if the brewery sells bottles of Parabola and Sucaba?

    They do sell the bottles, however they may or may not have any parabola left on the shelves. Your best bet is to give them a quick call.

    If anyone's still looking, they had some at the Lafayette Whole Foods this evening.

    I chose to not buy any because I have plenty, bordering on too much. Similarly, I was told by the salesperson with whom I spoke that they also had Sucaba in the back, which I also declined due to having a few bottles left.
    I can't confirm either of these in the sense that I didn't actually see either, but unless an otherwise reasonable employee was just straight-out lying to me, they should both be available there.

    Hopefully you bought them all, it's too tempting seeing them everyday ;)

    Missed this in the East Bay due to my honeymoon. Is there any still floating around?

    I'm hunting today. I dropped the ball on getting it before, and when I did see it, it was $22+/bottle.

    WC, Lafayette, San Ramon WF out.

    Still 5-6 at the Murrieta Barons. Long drive, but worth it I think.
