November 8, 2014 Show
This week we were fortunate enough to drink and discuss Lagunitas Brewing Company with owner Tony Magee! We were joined in studio by the one and only Backyard Billy from Backyard Ale House and some surprise drop in guests from the soon to open Celestial Brewing Company from right here in NEPA!
This weeks beer lineup included:
Lagunitas IPA: One of the first truly West coast IPA's that was done first and still may be the best! Highly drinkable and enjoyable, if you have not had this IPA then you don't know IPA's!
Lagunitas Born Yesterday Pale Ale: A brand new beer from the brewery that was bottled the previous Monday and sent out to store shelves throughout the West coast. A very drinkable Pale Ale with tons of hop character and a solid malt backbone. WORLD CLASS!
Lagunitas Sucks: A DIPA with tons of hop flavors and a sticky sweet malt backbone, simply delicious!
Hop Stoopid: As the name says, this is a hop punch to the palate boasting 102 IBU's! A perfectly dry finish leaves you wanting more. It rivals many of the top DIPA's that are on the market and in many ways surpasses, namely due to the availability throughout the country!
Imperial Red: The sweet malts from this sit perfectly with the piney citrus hops. Eay to see why many call this their true go to beer.
Imperial Stout: The rich coffee and bitter dark chocolate notes prove that Lagunitas not only can brew world class IPA's but also know their way around great stouts as well!
This weeks giveaway featured a ton of great items from Lagunitas Brewing Company as well as a copy of Tony's amazing book So You Want to Start a Brewery?
The winner also received a subscription to the amazing All About Beer Magazine!
