Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Dark Swan
Here’s another beer that’s been sent to me by the brewer’s rep for my comment. Under consideration is Dark Swan Sour Ale, from Lagunitas Brewing Co. of Petaluma, CA and Chicago. It’s the latest in their “One-Hitter Series” of limited release beers that may or may not be back next year. The description is that... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Davey Murray's Best Scotch Ale

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Davey Murray's Best Scotch Ale
I need to catch with some of the beers that have been sent to me for review. This is one of Lagunitas Brewing Co.’s “One Hitter Series” for 2017 and came out a few months ago. But it should still around at this time. Davey Murray’s Best Scotch Ale departs from Lagunitas’ usual hop bombers.... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Doppel Weizen

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Doppel Weizen
On Easter Sunday, it’s traditional for the monks of various orders, who have been fasting for 40 days on minimal diet, perhaps punctuated with a weak beer, to break their fast with something “doppel.” Usually that’s a doppelbock beer, which is why the best known examples of the style were named “Celebrator” and “Salvator.” Well,...

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas High West-ified Imperial Coffee Stout

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas High West-ified Imperial Coffee Stout
Feb. 11: Maybe it’s the comet acting in concert with the lunar eclipse this week, but darn if it’s not half way warm this weekend. Downtown, there’s an ice-carving festival, and by 1 pm, all the sponsored sculptures that were installed in the morning have been halfway melted. It’s 4 pm now as I start... Read more »

Up to 12 Beers of Christmas: Lagunitas Brown Shugga

Up to 12 Beers of Christmas: Lagunitas Brown Shugga
I wouldn’t have known that Brown Shugga is presented as Lagunitas‘ Chirstmas beer, but this is the time of year they sent me one to sample. Their website calls it their “winter seasonal” And the red and green on its label solidify the idea. So here it is. Brown Shugga is one of those beers in... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview, Lagunitas "W" India Pale Ale
I was going to wait on this one. Lagunitas Brewing Co. had sent me a bottle of “W”, their India Pale Ale relabeled to celebrate the Cubs winning the World Series. I thought it would be most appropriate to share this with my family on Thanksgiving, since my Dad is the real Cubs fan in... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Stoopid Wit in a Riedel Beer Glass
It’s amazing that I have a bit of a breather in my usual schedule. Perhaps my slight changes in compiling calendar listings is finally catching hold? Perhaps I’m finally able to take of business late at night while still tweeting about #allstartrek. So I had a chance to look in my queue of draft articles... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Born Yesterday Pale Ale

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Born Yesterday Pale Ale
I’m pulling extra shifts at the grill, my choice of venue for pouring and talking about craft beers that have been sent to me for my comment (that’s a disclaimer right there!). I have some seasonal IPA’s that should be really be dissected while still fresh, so here I am on a Friday morning, grilling... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Tuberfest

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Tuberfest
The local Oktoberfest celebration was going on down the block this past weekend, so I had another chance to review an Oktoberfest beer that had been sent to me by the brewers’ PR rep for my comment. In the spirit of the season, I get to Lagunitas Brewing Co.’s One-Hitter 2016 series beer, Tuperfest. Lagunitas... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Lucky 13
I did have a grill out today, but it was at a Forest Preserve where no alcohol is allowed, and besides I was with my family. I got to use the portable grill they got me for Father’s Day to char some hot dogs and make s’mores. Everybody happy, and I am popping another beer... Read more »
