    Give It A Shot - Lagunitas Brewing The Waldos' Special Ale

    In the spirit of sharing, which is what we are all about at About Beverages, we want you to know that our unintended run of episodes featuring beverages or beverage categories that we have never tried before ends with this show. It had to end sooner or later, and at least what we will be featuring on this show is something we have enjoyed in the past. A trusted extremely limited-release from an experienced brewery which we hope will be worthy of being known as the beverage that ended that brief, unintended run. For this podcast, we will be trying The Waldos’ Special Ale from Lagunitas Brewing. For the past several years, Lagunitas has released this beer around April 20th, in honor of the origins of 420. They say it is the dankest and hoppiest beer they have ever brewed and comes in at 11.7% ABV. What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch. 

    If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    Give It A Shot - Lagunitas Hop Water and H2ops Water

    There are times when as much as you may want to try something, the only thing you can do is wait. One can search the whole city over, call trusted contacts within the industry, and even hope and pray, all to no avail. That is probably a bit over-dramatic as we were only searching for this particular item for about a week, but in today’s world a week feels like at least 10 days. All kidding aside, we had hoped to try this last week, but could not find it. That makes last weeks loss this weeks gain. The beverage we are featuring on this episode is the Lagunitas Hop Water. It is a sparkling water with hops and natural flavors added. It is non-alcoholic, with no carbs and no calories. We will also re-visit a sparkling hop water we tried a few months ago, H2OPS, and do a quick comparison at the end of the show. What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Lagunitas Brewery Hop Stoopid

    Continuing with our American Double/Imperial IPA week we have the Hop Stoopid from Lagunitas Brewery.  We have had many of their beers in the past either on the show or at various events with mixed results.  Instead of using hop pellets or whole cones they chose to use hop extract and oils to get their 102 IBUs.  This beer also comes in at 8% ABV and is unfortunately being tasted hot on the heels of the amazing Pliny the Elder we had earlier in the week.  One thing this beers does have going for it is that the first words on the description label are lyrics to the Steely Dan song Kid Charlemagne.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Lagunitas Brewery Wilco Tango Foxtrot (WTF) Ale

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" please don't hesitate to contact us.  If you want to bend our ear you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com  or have a seat at The Round Table and start a discussion in our forums.  After the podcast that came out on Monday, we're glad to be giving Lagunitas a chance at redemption.  The beer we will be trying today is the Wilco Tango Foxtrot (WTF).  Hopefully this "malty, robust, jobless recovery ale", will make us feel better about what happened in the recent past.  If you are a fan of Lagunitas, let us know what beers from them we should be trying in case this one doesn't work out.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" please don't hesitate to contact us.  If you want to bend our ear you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com  or have a seat at The Round Table and start a discussion in our forums.  Today on the podcast we will be trying a beer from a brewery new to our website, the Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout.  It's an imperial-esque stout brewed with Sebastopol’s Hardcore Coffee.  Usually when we think cappuccino, we think of a drink made with espresso, hot milk and steamed milk froth.  Let's hope they left the milk part out of this beer.
