Beer of the Month


Lagunitas Luck 13

From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first brewhouse in the first space to these coordinates on the cone of space-time; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers- Chico’s brewer of California’s Best Pale Ale, the Noble Brewer of the planet’s only legal Steam Beer, and Oregon’s Rebel Brewer from Newport. Now we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the hero’s path, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to leave our footprints on it’s path into history- at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Obey those Buds! Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specially brewed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering.


This come from the horses mouth.  Above is an excerpt from the Lagunitas website itself.  I love their descriptions of their beers.  They are so crafty in and outside the bottle.  This is a red ale that packs a punch.  It is 8.8% and has an IBU of 55.  I find it to be rather smooth, but trust me a few will knock you down if your not ready.  This beer was made celebrating their 13 years of brewing and has been a staple through April and June since 2006.  I hope you can enjoy it as much as I have.
