Lagunitas Sucks * 2.667

It appears Lagunitas Brewing has something unusual in store for us. This past winter, they released Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Alea replacement for Brown Shugga', their regular winter release. They were unable to brew Brown Shugga' in 2011 due to capacity constraints. The name of the replacement beer was their way poking fun at themselves.

I enjoyed Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale, and actually preferred it to Brown Shugga'. It looks like Lagunitas Sucks will be returning, as the brewery just received a new label approval. If you look closely at the label, you'll see it will be packaged in a 32 oz (1 quart) bottle! Off the top of my head, I can't think of another craft beer that's distributed in a quart bottle.

Lagunitas hasn't released details, so I don't know when it will be released. However, I found this hint on their website, so I'm guessing they it will be their August seasonal release. We'll see. I'm just glad that this beer is making a return. Just be sure to find a friend to help you drink it!

Do you think Lagunitas still sucks?

  1. I just had a bottle of their Lucky 13 anniversary release. Definitely a excellent brew.

  2. I missed Lucky 13. I'll have to look for it. Thanks for the tip Russ.
