Very few bottles got very far from the Golden State. starting in  2015, the beer was  brewed in Chicago as well, making the beer more widely available.

Lagunitas Born Yesterday features whole cone, un-kilned Mosaic, Equinox, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops. The beer bottles and ships the same day.

The brewery announced today that Lagunitas Born Yesterday has been bottled, and already showing up on shelves.

NoDa Sticky When Wet, a new fresh hopped beer

NoDa Sticky When Wet

NoDa Sticky When Wet, the Charlotte, North Carolina based brewery’s fresh/wet hop beer is headed for cans.

Head brewer Chad Henderson spearheaded this hoppy project, going from hop field to brew 24 hours. Henderson chose two ridiculously popular hops for NoDa Sticky When Wet – Mosaic and Citra. The duo give this beer big peach and grapefruit flavors.

We brewed this beer one day after the hops were harvested…as fresh and sticky as you can get! This wet hopped heer has an assertive bitterness, balanced with bright aroma and flavors of peach and grapefruit derived horn heavy additions of Citra and Mosaic hops.

NoDa Sticky When Wet is a draft, and 16 ounce can release.

Style: IPA (Wet Hopped)
Hops: Citra, Mosaic

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Week of October 10th, 2016
