Lagunitas IPA

Tonight, my wife and I went out to use a gift card she had received from her boss for a local restaurant, and I rekindled my love affair with a beer I haven’t had in quite some time; Lagunitas IPA.  If you are unfamiliar with this San Francisco area based brewery, now is the prefect time to become addicted to one greatest west coast breweries ever!  Started back in 1993, Lagunitas Brewery is the brainchild of several friends who all descended upon Petaluma, California to fulfill a lifelong desire to make their own beer.  And their result is one of the greatest and most sought after groups of beers in the nation.  Lagunaitas’ style is making supercharged ales.  Their beers are loaded with hops and malts but are balanced and smooth. 

So, as we were out for dinner tonight, I was running through my usual internal debate about what beer to have with dinner, when I noticed a new beer to the list that I realized, I haven’t had in almost a year.  The debate was over and I went for the Lagunitas IPA.  I truly love this beer but I really think that the beer brewing geniuses at Lagunitas put it the best; “ruthlessly delicious…homicidally hopped for drinking enjoyment.”

Make sure, if you ever see any (ANY) Lagunitas beer on a beer store’s shelf or in a bar or restaurant, order it up immediately and enjoy your newest obsession in the world of adult beverages.  Now, I am back to another one, and hopefully you get to one soon.
