    Now there is. SEPA, Lehigh Valley, it coming? Anyone know when/where? Didn't see one bottle last year. Would love to grab at least 1 this year.

    Did not hit Philly until the 1st week of August last year.

    Maybe that's why I never found any. Already in NY and not sure about NJ. I don't understand why it takes so much longer for things to travel a shorter distance when the Philly market is involved (at least in my experience).

    Already posted this in the main Parabola thread, but Origlio who distributes it in Philly told me another 2 weeks at the earliest and that was on Friday last week I believe. I hope I can get 1 during PBW!

    I'm looking forward to the release in PA. A buddy just opened a fresh bottle he received from California this week. Huge chocolate notes at colder temperatures. The barrel came out as it warmed, delicious as always.

    I'm guessing this is for Parabola on tap? Anyone know any places that may have it in bottles? I'm always searching at bottles shops for rare finds but can't seem to find anything. Seems everything gets grabbed real fast.

    Shops putting everything up on the social networks does this. Along with "lists" it's getting tough to walk into a store and buy a rare bottle. Although it's not always the case such as the shop I bought BCBS from bought a HUGE amount of it and it was just sitting on the floor.

    You are a lucky man. I've gone to a lot of places, beer distributors, bottles shops and they all ask me what I'm looking for. I almost don't even bother asking half the time because they all say no.

    Looks like this is true for kegs (PBW). Any bottles yet?
