Lagunitas LUCKY 13

Brewing Company: Lagunitas (Petaluma, CA & Chicago, IL) est. 1993

Beer: Lucky 13

Style: Imperial Red Ale

ABV: 8.8%

While I don’t have a favorite brewing company, there is one that comes close: Lagunitas Brewing Company. Lucky 13 is a limited release from Lagunitas. Available from April through June, this beer will be vacating shelves shortly. This beer poured a hazy, medium amber with a long lasting, short head. While I could definitely sense alcohol on the nose, along with fruity and herbal hops, I was not overwhelmed by my first sip. A slightly maltly, sweetness balanced out by loads of hops made for a very enjoyable sip. This beer is not only hoppy, but rich. Overall this beer was very enjoyable, and I would say dangerously drinkable. At 8.8% ABV this is one to sit back, relax, and enjoy.

Did you know? Lagunitas Brewing Company is 50% owned by Heineken International.

My Rating- 4/5

Availability: 6pks and Draft
