Making a Mondo Ultra Mega Super Premium Barleywine Ale is a little like having a kid. The first part is fun and messy, it takes a while to ferment, and then a whole longer to mature. It is expensive and takes up a lot of space. You worry about how it'll grow up and whether or not you'll still be friends. Eventually it stays out all night and comes home with it's skirt on backwards. You know how it is. Usually we package our ales within 15 days of brewing. This one we aged in tanks for over a month. Why not buy three-? Drink one now, keep one in the 'fridge for a month, and one for another year! Yummy. . .
In keeping with our tradition of sucking, we need to make room for other new beers and bring the sub back to the bench... for now. Lagunitas Sucks began as a short-term substitute for when we didn't have brewing capacity to make Brown Shugga'. Since then, it has substituted into our Unlimited Release line-up, a Winter seasonal 12-pack, and even as far out as a ginormous 32oz quart bottle... who knows what form it will take next. Thanks for drinking it. We suck!Beer Me
