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 »

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Eroica

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Eroica
I’m writing this in the last lull before the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I’ve been constantly updating the Black Wednesday and Black Friday calendar, and tomorrow will pack for the trip to Grandma’s. When we get back, we’ll be right into Christmas decorating mode. Just enough time to slip into one more beer that’s been sent... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview: Lagunitas Sakitumi
Let’s pop another beer that has been sent to my by the brewer for comment (I love this blog!). Lagunitas Brewing Co.’s One-Hitter Series has brought forth Sakitumi, described as a “punched-up ale with rice and sake yeast.” It’s also had the usual West Coast complement of Simcoe, Tomahawk and Mosaic hops. Let’s pop the... Read more »

Reprise: Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Born Yesterday Pale Ale

Reprise: Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas Born Yesterday Pale Ale
Addendum for the 2017 version; see below. 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... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas NightTime Ale

Beer by the Grill: Lagunitas NightTime Ale
After what seemed like weeks of brutally hot weather, it’s finally nice enough for me to set out some viands and a cerveza at the grill. This is an adjunct article to my recipe for a beer marinated chicken breast. Hey, look! Here’s a link to the recipe. It’s tasty! I got the marinade made about... Read more »

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 »
