“Beer, we have learned, has always been a good lubricant for social intercourse!" Well. Not sure we would've put it like that, exactly. But we like the sentiment. We're here for good beer and good times, so we've found a kindred spirit in Lagunitas. And a bunch of other people. Because Lagunitas has skyrocketed since launching in 1993. They've got 13 distinct brews, including the delicious Lagunitas IPA, and a handful of limited and one-time releases to keep your eye out for. Just don't order the Little Sumpin' Sumpin' at the bar. Or choose your sentence structure carefully if you do. Trust us.
Where Is Lagunitas Produced?
Thanks to Lagunitas' nationwide appeal, the brewery has expanded its original production facilities. It's now brewed in both Petaluma and Chicago. Don't worry, though. No matter where your bottle originated, it's going to taste perfectly awesome.
One of their most popular picks, Lagunitas IPA is also one of its original brews. It launched back in 1995, and its well-rounded, easy-to-drink character has made it a must-have at any craft beer bar ever since. Not sure if you can handle the hops? Just wait for the rich hint of caramel malt barley that balances out the flavor and keeps you asking for more.
Sometimes you just want a delicious beer you don't have to think too hard about. You're supposed to be drinking, not drafting a college thesis. Grab a six-pack of Lagunitas Pils and kick back. The brewery introduced this Czech-style pilsner in 1997 and imports Czech hops to give it that authentic flavor you need. Whether it's summer or winter, this one is always in style.
Lagunitas Pale Ale:
Pale ale may not be the sexiest brew on the market, but Lagunitas Pale Ale adds a little extra magic to this style. It boasts a bigger, maltier flavor than you'd expect, and Lagunitas never skimps on the hops. You'll get a crisp finish from every tasty bottle.
Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale:
This unique brew has a little sumpin' sumpin' for everyone. IPA lovers will appreciate the hops, while Hefeweizen fans will still taste its wheaty characteristics. The silky body won't compete with food, so throw down with some rich dishes like creamy pastas and Indian gravies. Could an ale possibly be better than this?
Lagunitas Maximus IPA:
Think you're a true IPA enthusiast? Prove it by throwing back a Lagunitas Maximus IPA. This one's the next-level version of their classic IPA. This incredibly hoppy beer boasts 8.2 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), so maybe take it easy instead of slugging it back. Maximus IPA packs a punch, but we know you can totally handle it.
