Beer Speaks, People Mumble- Lagunita’s 5/15
Tapping TWO special Lagunita’s Kegs on Wednesday May 15th!
2013 WALDOS’ SPECIAL ALE
Here’s what Lagunita’s website has to say about it-
“Though we change this slightly every year it always ends up bein’ the dankest, hoppiest brew we make.
This year clocks in at 84.20 IBUs and 10.5% ABV. Murkily un-filtered and mysteriously mixed with some unique grains, malted rye, oats and spelt (a type of wheat, spelled just like that).
Next, we Dry Hopped with experimental varieties HBC366, Australian Galaxy, and its usual Simcoe and Mosaic (which went into last year’s Waldo as HBC369).
Altogether, 2013 Waldos’ Special is super skunky and resinous. Someone likened it to licking your lips after your first hit of a freshie …whatever that means. At approximately 9 pounds per barrel of hops, we’re sure it’s probably a good thing. Cheers to all you treasure hunters!”
And the other is called SoCo STOUT
Here’s the word on SoCo Stout (as in Sonoma County), straight from head brewer, Jeremy Marshall-
“The barrels are Dirty Pinots & Chards (means not rinsed, freshly emptied barrels, lots of lees—looks like purple pudding) We purge & rack ‘em full. Any Brettanomyces or bacterial action comes from the barrel. A lot of oak left from “neutral” barrels will become evident. Aged 2 years then all blended together. Cheers!”
