Laguintas Brewing Co. has a number of changes in its lineup for 2018 including three new packaged beers and the return of a fan favorite at the end of the year.
The Petaluma, Calif.-based brewery will be releasing three new packaged beers as part of its Limited Release Series: Imperial Red Ale, a 7.8 percent imperial red ale that is a variation of Lagunitas’ first beer in 1993; Night Pils, a 9.5 percent ABV dark pilsner that debuted on-draft in 2014; and Cherry HotSide Ale, a 4.8 percent ABV sour ale that was released as a draft-only option in 2015.
Imperial Red Ale will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles that will be available July-September, while Night Pils and Cherry HotSide Ale will be both be packaged in 22-ounce bottles that will ship to retailers from May-June and July-August respectively.
In addition, while Lagunitas is dropping Davey Murray’s Best Scotch Ale from its OneHitter Series of limited releases packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles, the rest of the lineup will remain the same apart from Dark Swan sour ale moving from a July release to being available from February-March and Eroica barrel-aged sour beer being available one month early in August.
Finally, fan favorite Willitized Coffee Stout will be returning to the OneHitter Series and will remain an 11.7 percent ABV imperial stout aged in barrels that previously held Willett bourbon that will ship to retailers in December.
