Just received word about 40 minutes from posting this and stopped by my local in Bay Area, CA. Looks like they have about 30's on hand in select warehouses.

If you're in the Bay Area, there's stock in Hayward, Redwood City, South SF (i think SFO), Almaden, and Automation.

Item Number: 763242

Too bad Texas doesn't let Costco run their own liquor store.

What do you mean? I saw some Costco with their liquor store right next to it in Texas.

The space is just leased out to another company called Western Beverage, not as good of a selection or prices compared Costco run stores in other states. TX has some weird laws about companies operating liquor stores.

No alcohol in Pennsylvania Costco warehouses either. PA is loosening their ridiculous rules on alcohol sales lately, so hopefully they will open that up soon for Costco.

You got me excited since I missed the last Hibiki stock. Went to Costco in Irvine, CA. Couldn't find it on the shelves. Had them check their computer no stock here or in the neighboring OC/LA stores.

I checked with costco online chat and unfortunately, it is still "discontinued" in SoCal (Orange County), but I'll keep my eye out for it. Thanks OP
is it really that good? I sniped 3 bottles last time I saw it, 2 as gifts and 1 to add to my collection. At this point im afraid to drink it

It's rare in the US but quite common across bars in Asia. No need to be afraid of it disappearing or going extinct.

I wouldnt be afraid to drink it, but I personally enjoy it a lot for the price range. Word got out about it and they have had no stock for years, which makes it kind of a big deal.
