Next year, Lagunitas Brewing Co. will once again be releasing the brewery’s “dankest and hoppiest beer” it has ever created.
That beer is Waldos’ Special Ale, an 11.7 percent ABV triple IPA. The ale will be a member of the Petaluma, Calif.-based brewery’s 2021 OneHitter Series, which includes “unique, strange, Lagunitas one-off” beers.
“In 1971, the Waldos met one afternoon at 4:20 in the front courtyard of their school near the statue of Louis Pasteur”, reads a post on Lagunitas’ website. “They set out in a ’66 Impala armed with a “treasure map” on a journey to find a secret garden near Point Reyes. They met there at the same time every day and continued their quest. They never found the secret garden….But they keep lookin’.”
According to Lagunitas, The Waldos’ Special Ale 2021 will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles that are scheduled to be shipped to retailers nationwide in April 2021.
