After a four year hiatus, Lakewood Brewing Co.’s Goatman is returning next week, and this time it will be much easier to find.
The beer will remain a 9.3 percent ABV imperial India black lager is a “hybrid between a German Schwarzbier and an Imperial Cascadian Black IPA” and is dry-hopped with “copious amounts” of Simcoe hops. The ale was first released in 2013 as part of the Garland, Texas-based brewery’s Legendary Series packaged in 22-ounce bottles.
Goatman will join five other beers in Lakewood’s year-round lineup:
- All Call kölsch (5 percent ABV)
- The Temptress imperial milk stout (9.1 percent ABV)
- Lakewood Lager (4.6 percent ABV)
- Hop Trapp Belgian-style IPA (6.4 percent ABV)
- Hypochondria session IPA (4.6 percent ABV)
- Goatman imperial black lager (9.3 percent ABV)
In an email, Craig Bradley, marketing and events manager at Lakewood, told Tenemu that the newest incarnation of Goatman will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles and is “releasing all over DFW starting next week, with more markets around TX to come in the following weeks.”
