The newest OneHitter release from Lagunitas Brewing Co. shares a name with one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s symphonies.
The beer is Eroica, an 8 percent ABV “Lagunitas-ified version” of a Flemish farmhouse-style ale brewed with brettanomyces and aged in red wine barrels. The ale will join four other bottled beers in Lagunitas’ OneHitter Series, which is made up of seasonal releases:
- High West-Ified Imperial Coffee Stout — January
- Davey Murray’s Best Scotch Ale — February-March
- The Waldos’ Special Ale — April
- Eroica — May
- Born Yesterday Pale Ale — October
According to a post on Lagunitas’ website, Eroica will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles and is scheduled to be shipped to retailers in May.
