Does anyone know where I can get the 14th Anniversary or Parabola? The parabola was a stand out for me last year and would like another bottle and I didn't get to try the 14th. I heard that the 14th was also on tap...is it still around and did parabola make it to draught?

Thanks in advance...cheers!

    Amesbury ale house would be the one place that could sneak it on tap...Or maybe someone has a keg they are aging?I highly doubt that there is one floating Round with dust on it somewhere... It was really good stuff,better with a year on it IMO.

      Are you talking about the 14th? I found some parabola at Bayview Liquors in Southie so in the spirit of good beer karma, I left a couple after picking up a few!

        It's like you are a prophet! The FW14 was just tapped at the Union Brewhouse down the street from me in Weymouth. My parabola is cellaring and the 14th was delicious.

        I haven't been looking specifically (and I have such a stockpile of homebrew & commercial that I rarely go beer shopping these days) but I don't recall seeing 14 for a very long time.

        I saw 14 on tap at Hobo & Deep Ellum but that was back in the spring.

              Not yet. I didn't even realize it was out - it's been months since I've been to a liquor store due to a backlog of homebrew & other stocked up goodies.

              Yeah I saw them there. I have one so far and will probably get one or two more. I am thinking a year would be very nice but I am sure one will be opened much sooner haha.

            15th Anniversary hit the shelves around here more than a month ago. That would be much easier to find than 14.

            I've never seen Parabola on draft. I bought a bottle maybe 6 months ago and that was the only time I've seen it.

              Yeah I have a 15th Anni that I haven't tried yet. I just really wanted a 14th and a parabola. Thanks for responding!
