Maybe more Sumpin Wilds to be found
I heartily endorse this event or product.
They make 2-3 good beers. Still, this ain't a bad thing.
Never heard of it
Love their IPA!
Lagunitas is for jerks.
2-3 ?? Really ?? What are you smoking ??
Little Sumpin' Sumpin', Lagunitas Sucks and Little Sumpin' Wild. Everything else is pedestrian to crap.
Had Maximus last weekend.
Try some other hoppy beers from CA before making this claim. They are way down the ladder on IPAs compared to Alpine, Russian River, Port, FW, AleSmith, etc...
Their IPA isn't the "greatest" but it's good...which goes alongside their other beers mentioned which are "great."
So, yeah, Lagunitas has more than 2-3 good beers.
also Racer 5, Thunderhead & Malicious Cocksucker
That's cool. More for you! They just don't do it for me like most.
CA on the whole, I don't believe makes anything besides IPAs and DIPAs really well, with a few exceptions. Most of the stouts are light and boring and you don't see too many porters or barleywines. I find every other beer by Lagunitas to be that way. Brown Shugga is putrid as is the Cappuccino Stout.
I thought Sucks was one of the best beers I had last year though. And if a local wing means more of that... than
Maxumus, Censored, All Little Sumpins
Those are some damn ned good beers
Ballz named this thread after his favorite album of all time, but changed Frampton to Boners and then conjugated accordingly
I agree with Bevi. They're a safe bet for IPAs and Little Sumpin is a good quick choice when the waitress is sweating me. But hardly any brewery does more than a few things really well.
My boner is large because I'm pretty much always drinking IPAs and Pales as an exercise of FREE SPEECH
Can you SHOW ME THE WAY to exercise free speech, ballz
all I drink anymore are IPAs, Belgian Whites and Hefes. Every blue moon maybe a Guinness
Would have been funnier if you said every blue moon, you drank a Blue Moon.
Fuller had a Blue Moon at that golf outing years ago
Wow, that's some memory! I admit that is probably the only macro I will drink. Although I did quaff the occasional MGD way back when.
Hey, welcome back Boss!!!!!
I would be remiss if I didn't give Cali credit for their sours. If you get down with that, no state does that genre better... of course, that's mostly Russian River's doing.
Too bad Pipeworks offerings other than their DIPA have sucked nut. Chicago beer scene is at a critical mass with all the new breweries opening, beer bars like that mammoth Pourhouse in Old Town and more out of market beers for sale on the shelves... Brewery Vivant is up next.
For the longest time I thought Little Sumpin' Sumpin' was code for something else at the bar. Like it was the name of the drink.
little Sumpin Extra is very good too
Me too, it is excellent.
Picked up a Chicago Mead yesterday.. good stuff
Bring it tomorrow!
Only bringing crap beer.. Dont want to die of drunkeness
50 vodka gummi bears later: RIP
Yeah but thats for everyone.. They aren't that strong though
KettleOne Drunken Gummies
Did you have to swim the English Channel to get it?
No speaky Ingles
is it sustainable?
Good news: The Chicago tap room is slated to open in April
Bad news: It's in Douglas Park.
I've never even heard of Douglas Park.
What the fuck, seriously? What in the world would possess them to put it there?
Probably because you're bald(ing.)
As long as they brew fruity beer!
Are we sure it will be in Douglas Park ?
Oh fuck !!!!
The main purpose of the facility is to massively increase their production and distribute to all eastern states. With this goal in mind, they picked a really inexpensive industrial area with access to the interstate. Also, I'm sure that Rahm encouraged it with lots of promises.
Seems they're counting on ignorance to get people to the taproom. Their posts sounds quaint when you don't know that Douglas Park has got more gangbangers than Infinite's posting history.
Rahm said: open here and the whitesss will come
