Cerveza Nochebuena, San Diego or Mendocino

Has anyone seen Nochebuena in San Diego? It a Christmas beer from Mexico and only produced at this time of year. I've had it a few times and enjoy it. I'm traveling to Mendocino this year and would perfer not to have to fly with it, but will if it's my only option. Does anyone know 1) if Nochebuena is even imported into the U.S. and 2) if it is, where might I find a 6-pack in San Diego, Granite Bay or Ft. Bragg/Mendocino. TIA
where are you flying into? There is a BevMo in Santa Rosa, which is right on your way to Mendocino if flying into SF. (and I am sure there is also probably more than one in Sacramento somewhere, which is near Granite Bay assuming you mean the Granite Bay at Folsom). For kare raisu: hard to believe they don't have Carta Blanca or Bohemia at BevMo: have you looked there?
Beer and flying just sounds like a lot of hassle, and a potential more than hassle if it breaks in your luggage. (and of course you can't carry it on, will have to check it). Is it really that great?
I'd look in the one of the BevMo's up North. (or as Josh says, try a local brew if you can't find it, and stock up on the NocheBuena to enjoy when you get back.)
We're flying into Sacto. The purpose of wanting it for Xmas was so that my BIL and nephew could enjoy it too. Flying with weird and wacky stuff is second nature to me, and, other than a tin of Italian tuna leaking (REALLY stinky) I've not had too much difficulty with stuff breaking. The 22# prime rib cost me some excess baggage fees...
did you ever find any Noche Buena? I have been to Vons, Ralphs, and the Mission valley BevMo in the last week and no one has had it.
