    So Sucuba is released at the brewery today. Wonder when stores in New England will start to see it...

    Your guess is as good as mine. IIRC it took Parabola and Wookey Jack a lot longer to hit my stores in MA and NH last year than expected. That may have changed since then - FW seems to be pumping out product to New England a lot better as of late.

    No Parabola made it to MA last year. Distribution was FUBAR. State's allocation went elsewhere.

    Parabola made it to MA. It wasn't until August and it wasn't as plentiful as the previous year but I picked up a couple and spotted it at a few other places.

    huh, ok. my bad. my understanding was that there was zero 2012 bottles in distribution in MA. I did find some 2011 still on the shelf last year though.

    Just saw 11 bottles of the 2013 at a store off Thayer in Providence. (Either $21 or $23/bottle.)

    There are other places in Providence selling them for $14.99, a much better price.

    Where?

    (Yes - that did seem extremely high, but I hadn't seen it anywhere else recently.)

    This wouldn't happen to be Spiritus?

    Yep - that's the place. Apparently there's a 'Thayer Street/Brown University Tax'
    Does anyone else in the area actually have it in stock?

    Eno on Westminster Street.

    Alternatively, I think Gasbarro's in North Attleboro (and maybe Seekonk) has some. But, I'd call to make sure.

    Thanks for the heads up! Just picked one up at Eno. (Two left....now.)
    I didn't see any at Gasbarro's in NA (unless they keep that stuff away from the beer section.)
