    All this talk of BA Bigfoot makes me want to open up one of my H24 2012 HammerHeads.

    Yeah, they were right next to the Estate, and were all the way up against the back of the cooler after someone grabbed a few from the front of the display. I missed them the first time I scanned the cooler.

    All this bitching - at least you guys have reasonable selections at your local stores! The Peninsula Whole Foods are pretty damn lacking.

    I've been waiting to buy the Utopias since December.

    Wow, I had no idea it was even carried. What store are you at?

    RWC was a mess today. Guys were working their butts off to keep up with demand. Hillsdale was, as always, quiet and lacking options, but I somehow bought $50 worth of beer between the two.

    Got 2 BA Bigfoots, Abyss 2012 and 3F Oude Gueuze for $45. Glad these things are only once a quarter...

    Not too bad. $72 and change out the door.

    I work at the store on California in SF. We managed to get two bottles, and I'm pretty sure the only reason that happened was because the Sam Adams rep knew I was going to buy one.

    I'd put Noe Valley #2. Tyler does a really good job given the space he has.

    Agreed, but the space constraint is precisely why I think SoMa and Haight have better selections - they just have more beer.
