The New Laguniti are Here


It's been 6 months since I started my effort to get the entire Lagunitas lineup into the KC market. It's been 6 months well spent since, starting today, 3 more Lagunitas year round beers will be hitting store shelves in town. Maximus IPA and Censored Ale sixers and Imperial Stout 22 oz. bombers will be available year round on both sides of the state line. I'd love for Pils to be available too, but I'm okay with the 3 new ones.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm going to buy all 3 this morning. I'm probably not going to make it to dinner tonight without opening one. But, day drinking Lagunitas is definitely not advised, especially with these 3. Censored is probably the best bet at 6.75% ABV, but it's also the one I'm least excited about. Imperial Stout's 10.14% would prove to be too much in an afternoon. So, my guess is the Maximus IPA will be the first one into my gullet. If I could only wait until late this evening, I'd go with the Imperial Stout, especially to pair with the rain. I don't know how it's going to work out, just that it's a big day for me and by the end of the day I'm sure that the beer will be speaking and I'll just be mumbling.

As always, let us know where you've found the new beers. If you don't see them at your favorite store, ask for them and let them know you're looking for it. If your favorite store carries no Lagunitas, stomp your foot and leave in a snit. It's unforgivable now to not carry the best beer for the money, Lagunitas.

  2. It will be interesting to see how they make the stout taste like all their other beers... but I'm confident they can do it.

  3. This past weekend I bought a sixer of Lagunitas Pale Ale (can't remember if it had a brand name or if it was just Pale Ale) in south Missouri and it was awful.

  4. oooh, Censored was my favorite Lagunitas for quite a while. I'm happy to see it make its way out here.

  5. Just had the Censored as well as the Stout... WOW is all I can say. I have paid much more for lesser beers and been dissapointed. The liquid is solid and looking forward to busting out the Maximus Saturday! Thanks for sharing the news, I got mine at Fairway Liquor!

  8. Would love to see the Stout (of course this came after I loaded up on it in MN) and Maximus on Draft somewhere. Any idea if this can happen?

  9. Loved the stout, and the Maximus was fine but just another Lagunitas beer, meaning it was hoppy and chock full o' sugar. But the stout was really delightful, even in the middle (okay, start) of summer--when Lagunitas throws you a curve, it's usually pretty decent.
