There is good news for craft beer drinkers here in Louisiana. Lagunitas Brewing Co. recently announced a brewery expansion that is expected to be completed in April, which will bring the California-based brewer to nearly every state in the U.S. The expansion is expected to triple their capacity from 185,000 barrels to nearly 600,000 barrels.
This is fantastic news for us in Louisiana, as we have had to get our fill of Lagunitas in Texas. Now we should expect to see some of my favorites such as Lagunitas IPA, Hop Stoopid, Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ and Little Sumpin’ Wild in Louisiana soon. I also believe that the entire Lagunitas line represents good value. They are relatively inexpensive and give you some bang for your beer buck. They are good craft beers with a higher than normal ABV.
