Beer Preview: Lagunitas Sparkling Swan

Beer Preview: Lagunitas Sparkling Swan
I may have noticed the next beer trend for 2018. Or maybe it’s just a holiday season trend. Something to take our minds of pumpkin spice. This past weekend, I sampled a Sparkling Rosé Ale by Forbidden Root. Now I have a bottle of Sparkling Swan from Lagunitas Brewing Company, which was sent to me... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Mozango

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Mozango
Of course I consider myself lucky that people are sending me their beers in the hopes that I’ll mention them in this blog. I’m also lucky that Lagunitas has been sending me “repeats” of their seasonals that I’ve already talked about. But this is a new one. Mozango is described as a “Mosaic-hopped ale,” without...

Beer Preview: Lagunitas Passion Grass
Got more beers in the cellar to write about. So here’s another one that’s been sent to me by Lagunitas Brewing Co. for my comment. Passion Grass is the latest in their “One-Hitter” series of limited releases, a joint venture between Lagunitas and Short’s Brewing of Bellaire, MI. It’s described as “A West by Midwest...

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Cherry Jane
I’m trying to bring a happier ending to some pretty crappy past few weeks. First, just a week or two after putting a new muffler in the older Beeronaut Excursion Vehicle, the BEV decided to die completely. At 2:00 am. On Roosevelt Road. After several hours spent with my little girl in the ER. I... Read more »

It’s been a rough week, but I hashed it over in the video attached. Let’s just say just one beer in the evening makes things a little better. So here’s another look at a beer from Lagunitas Brewing Co., which they sent to me for my comment. Super Cluster is another in their limited “One-Hitter”... Read more »

Beer Preview: Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday

I’ve worked in a little time to open a beer sent to me by the brewer’s rep for my comment. And since it’s a widely distributed brand, maybe I can pick up some extra clicks by shooting a One-Take Beer Review. Lagunitas Brewing Co. dropped a variant on their Born Yesterday wet hop pale ale.... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot
This Saturday has actually allowed for some outdoor activity. I got to clear out some dead branches, tighten the breaks on the teenager’s bike, and take the daughter to a STEM exhibit. Now I need to throw something on the grill before the frost comes in. Today’s grill item is some Bool Kogi Korean-style marinated... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Dry Hopped Censored

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Dry Hopped Censored
I am determined to get out a couple of beer reviews this weekend, maybe with some cube steaks defrosting right now, if the rain lets up. Meantime, let’s get a beer tested out while it’s still fresh. Lagunitas Brewing Co. has sent over a Dry Hopped limited version of their Censored amber ale. Beer fans... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Sumpin' Easy

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Sumpin' Easy
I’ve got more beers that have been sent to me by the brewer for comment, so let’s get to it. Lagunitas Brewing Co. has dropped me a can of Sumpin’ Easy, a new year-round canned release. It’s an American Pale Ale, with a touch of wheat in its malt, and Ekuanot hops, a fruity hop... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Willetized Coffee Stout

Of course I took the kids to see the new Star Wars movie this weekend. Afterward, I set up the camera to do another beer preview. Logically, I should logically have popped a Three Floyds Dark Lord, or even Toppling Goliath Light Speed Pale Ale. But what I have handy is Lagunitas Willetized Coffee Stout,... Read more »
