Talk about more than they bargained for. You start with Lagunitas not being able to brew Brown Shugga’ (money and capacity roadblocks), so they brewing a substitute – Lagunitas Sucks. The IPA was a pretty big hit, disappearing from shelves and tap handles as fast as it appeared. Bad news stuck Petaluma, California last last year when the brewhouse was destroyed in transit. The result? Big Hairy Eyeball gets bumped from the 2012 schedule. However that opened up the potential to brew Sucks again. This time with a name tweak – Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Leftovers Ale.
Don’t be confused. It’s the same hoppy IPA that has made so many people fall in love so quickly. Arriving on shelves now in 12oz bottles, & draft.
Style: American IPA
Availability: Limited early 2012 release. Sucks/Sucks Leftovers not on future brewing schedule.
