    That should be removed from the boxed series and be packed in 16oz cans.

    Nice! It's still a beer I haven't visited, but I have a bottle from last year sitting in the cellar. Looking forward to this to drop, as I've seen a lot more of the reserve series sitting around lately, so I may have a decent shot at picking up a few bottles.

    Crack it open, especially if you haven't had it before. Aged 18-24 months is the sweet spot imo.

    I'll give it a whirl. May include it in my end of the year, and holidays line up. Thanks!

    Early Christmas present. Without Scuba and DDBA, it was the same this year. Hell, I haven't gotten a hold of the Anniversary XXI due to change in distribution (last several years it was always available on Black Friday).

    Terrific BW, will be keeping my eyes open for this for sure. Helldorado and Sticky Monkee are both very good but sucaba is on another level of deliciousness, IMO.

    I have an extra 2015 and 2016 Sucaba as well as a 2014 DDBA if anyone’s interested. I thought I had a 2015 DDBA as well too but would have to look for it.. I’d be happy to let them go $4$ for something decent.

    Nothing that I've heard or seen, but since its replacing Bravo, I'm anticipating an early February release.

    Sounds good. I'd love to see them release Unfiltered DBA again, that beer was amazing (IIRC, it was 100% burton union aged, instead of the usual blend that comprises regular DBA).

    EDIT: from their 2016 press release:

    This. I'll take Sucaba and Double DBA over Helldorado and Bravo any day.

    I heard through the grapevine that FW will brewing all Proprietor's Vintage releases this year, too, as opposed to Boulevard. Can someone confirm? Sorry, if that was mentioned in here. I don't know how to read :/

    Are we sure it's replacing bravo? I liked bravo. But id like Double Dba to come back.

    A curtain call? Is that implying this is making a one year appearance? I don't like that phrasing ...

    "limited distribution" also has me worried. Liked that abacus reference though.

    DDBA was only made from '12-'14 and I'd be happy to take that '14 off your hands.

    They didn't post limits at their brewery for saturday. Hopefully it's a case still as I might just head down there to grab one.

    Yeah man my spreadsheet actually shows I have a 13’ and 14’. I’m certain I have at least one of these left. I’m in Hawaii right now but can double check to make sure when I get home man. I’d be open for a trade. Could u send me a list of what you would trade for one of them. I like all kinds of beers and would go $4$.

    Oh man oh man. So happy to hear it, one of my faves. This winter in the northeast has been lacking in top notch BW releases. At least ones I've been able to secure!

    One idiot's opinion...this year's Anniversary brew is not worth worrying about.
