I know a location that has more. I still have nine bottles left (plus a million other bottles). Fighting the urge to grab another six pack by telling myself that Hopslam will be here in a few weeks (though Lagunitas Sucks is half the price).

I really like Palm. It is a very drinkable, not super alcohol beer, that feels like there is more to it. It can be a little pricey in some places, especially considering it is not a prime European beer, but more and more places have it on draft, which is nice. Sometimes nice and easy is good, especially if you plan to drink three or more...

Picked up a case of the Suck at the Perfect Pour last week. They had multiple cases...

On a separate note, that store made me blow a load in my pants. Definitely over priced though...

Beer Disneyland!  Love that place.  Don't mind paying an extra buck for the stuff I can't find anywhere else!

$1 or $2 are fine, but items like the Pearl Jam Dogfish head were nearly double the price.

The highlight of my beer filled weekend was trying Firestone Walker's Parabola for the first time on draft at Fairfax Whole Foods. I think the keg lasted maybe three hours, so glad i got some!

It's a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. My wife liked it better than Founders KBS. I won't go that far, but it was quite good.

Love their Double Jack IPA.  Nobody seems to talk about it but it's awfully good, IMO.

They had the Double Jack on draft as well. $3.99 for a 12 oz pour. We split one of those too.  ;D Indeed it is awfully good.

Didn't mention it because they always seem to have it on draft. The Parabola was special.

The Union Jack aint too shabby either.  ;)
