Cellar Beer Review: Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Extra

Cellar Beer Review: Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Extra
Still self-isolating, alternating between working from home, posting magazines and records for sale, and looking for treasures from my cellar. I pulled this 2018 beer bomber from my box of Lagunitas Brewing Co. bombers, and realized it was one they sent to me, and I still haven’t written about it. A Little Sumpin’ Extra! Ale... Read more »

Seasonal Beer: Lagunitas Sucks

Seasonal Beer: Lagunitas Sucks
Santa has put out the presents and eaten the cookies and candy left for him, and the guinea pigs, I mean reindeer, have munched on the carrots. Time to grab one last beer whose label suggests Christmas, even if its name doesn’t. Lagunitas Sucks is one of those beers Lagunitas Brewing has sent to me... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Hazy Memory

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Hazy Memory
Sunday, the last day of summer, it was raining. But Mrs. ‘Naut had a simple wish for her birthday dinner: grilled hot dogs. Well, that and a cake from Jewel (she now prefers their whipped cream frosting to the buttercream). So somewhere between the raindrops, I got out to at least take a picture of... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Hazy

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Hazy
After some beastly heat for the Fourth of July, we have now been finally rewarded with a nice mild weekend. Time to get out and mow the lawn, and to And to throw my next week’s lunches on the grill in pre-preparation. It’s a good time to try out another beer that has been sent... Read more »

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, June 28-30

Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, June 28-30
I am about to dive into another probable freelance job that will take time away from writing about beer. Though it may leave me with more of a desire for beer at the end of a long day. Looking ahead, though, I can see there may be an event or two on the 4th of July. And another new brewer opening soon...

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Phase Change

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Phase Change
No special occasion this weekend. Just a few short hours without rain, and in which I was finally able to mow the lawn with my new cordless electric mower. It runs off of 40v batteries: when one is depleted, you switch it out with the other in the two battery compartments. Even so, it took... Read more »

Chicago Craft Beer Week, June 24-27

Chicago Craft Beer Week, June 24-27
I've left one event off this list because it's all sold out: The last bottle release for Goose Island's King Henry barleywine beer, which had been aged in Pappy van Winkle barrels previous used to age Bourbon County Stout. Tickets immediately sold out for the price of $200, which would get the attendee a 650 ml bottle of King Henry to take home, plus several 5 oz. pours of other Goose Bourbon County Brand barleywines. Sure, if you think you can score tickets, it's at the 1800 W. Fulton taproom, Monday the 24th, 7 to 10 pm. More details at Brown Paper Tickets. Even Goose Island's websites and Facebook page don't list this anymore. Because, I guess, why bother...

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Lagur

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Lagur
After I put in several hours this weekend on my second spare job it’s time to sit back or put a few things on the grill and enjoy another beer that has been sent to me by the brewery for my comment. Lagunitas Brewing has sent me a can of their new summer lager, named,... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Secret Agenda

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Secret Agenda
It’s the first spring weekend of the year. And the weather is amenable, so I’ve scrubbed down the grill, tried out a dry up on some pork cutlets, and open up a beer. As usual, this is a beer that has been sent to me for my comment. And also as usual, it’s from Lagunitas Brewing Co., which labors under the idea that I am an “influencer”. Well, I don’t want to go find for sure, because that might ruin things for me...

I'm stacking up some local beer reviews to make a set of pages for each individual brewer in Chicago. Meantime, I have some beers that have been sent to me for my comment. Like this one...
