Lagunitas Sucks to be Year Round

  1. OMG YES! This was my #1 "wish it would go year-round" beer.

    Please tell me it will see 12 oz format and not just a friggin' 32 oz tank (is that for reals?)

    I typically like to mix it up and buy different beers when I go to the store (with a couple staples mixed in). But I'll find it very hard to buy any other IPA when Sucks is on the shelf.
     
  2. I am fully torqued. Time to stock up on my brown paper bags, hellz yeah.

    Can we expect this to be $4 like Hop Stoopid? I'd totally abandon all my other IPAs if it is..

    Does Lagunitas currently package any of their beer in quart bottles?

    No, this will be the first.

    That's integrating, and sounds kind of fun. Hopefully they also package it in 12oz bottles again. I really like Sucks, its phenomenal, but 32oz is a bit more beer than I typically drink in a day so I don't see myself buying much of it if that's the only way it will be packaged.

    I generally try to always buy something new (not too hard with this hobby) but I bought Sucks probably 5 or 6 times in the couple months it was available so I'm excited about this. I'm also excited that Brown Shugga will be back this year.

    It's not year round yet so maybe just didn't hit your area last year. I will definitely try a 32 for novelty's sake but I agree that's a big beer for that size.

    I also wonder how much market share Lagunitas can steal from Schlitz/Olde English/King Cobra etc............

    Great, 1 quart bottles. So they will sit on shelves here longer than bottles of Hop Stoopid.

    NN goes malty too fast. I honestly wish that they'd both stay limited seasonal releases.

  21. 2 pints of 7.85% beer isn't too much at all. Put your big boy pants on.

    Daytime is really good but Sucks is much better IMO

    I'm currently into BIG D/TIPAs. But a guy needs a reasonably priced, readily available, tasty hop fix to fill the gaps between the "special releases" of Expo/Knuckle/EnjoyBy, etc. It's always been Hop Stoopid for me, but Sucks is a wonderful alternative. Bring it...

    Lagunitas held a tasting at my local beer store. I asked the rep when Sucks was coming out and he said "December." So we've still got three months. The world may end before we get more Sucks. :(

    Especially since I can hardly ever find fresh-fresh Hop Stoopid.

    It's quite a bit for me. I'm a fan of the 16-16.9oz serving size, either pounders or half-liter bottles, because that's more reasonable for me. Apparently I have small pants because two pints of a 7.85% beer is a bit much for me.

    fmccormi Champion (770) Florida Oct 24, 2010

    Fair enough. Haaaaa, more tease.
     

  38. 32 oz of 16 proof beer. Vodka and bourbon is 80 proof. 5x that of 16 proof beer. So, it's the equivalent of a 6.4 oz vodka martini, roughly. There are 1.5 oz. in a shot. So a 6.4 oz martini would have 4 shots, and a little excess in it. Have problems drinking a single cocktail, do ya? :p

    Move to Utah. ;-)

    That does sound about right.
     
  40. I'll take fresh New Dogtown Pale over their IPA all day, everyday my brutha! Way better beer IMHO and I LOVE IPAs / DIPAs. (upon re-reading your post, I may have originally read it wrong when replying)
