Beer: Lucky 13 by Lagunitas Brewing


I Feel Lucky
While enjoying a Lucky 13 last night two questions occurred to me: 1) I wasn't sure if I'd ever had a Lucky 13 at Lucky 13 on Friday the 13th, and 2) I wasn't sure if the readers of this blog had ever enjoyed a Lucky 13 at Lucky 13 or anywhere else. The answer to the first question may be had from one of Chowbacca!'s favorite drink-slingers or even Old Doc Gus. The second answer I'm going to take care of right now: If you haven't at least given this beer a try in its 7 year run, do so now.

Lagunitas' self-and-accurately-proclaimed "ultra-hoppy-mega-malty-mondo ales" aren't for everyone, but I'm not everyone. I have long been a fan of the Petaluma brewery's style and found that my 22 oz bomber of 8.9 ABV red ale deliciousness filled my happy beer hole with hoppy, malty goodness. This brew grabs you by the face with flavor and pairs well with drinking, shooting the shit, and shots*. It also gives good head.

If you've had it, have another. If you haven't tried it, get yourself to your local beer seller or Costco right now and grab one or more. If you can't find it, you're either in the wrong part of the country or you'll have to wait until they release it again.


Heady Goodness!
