According to Lagunitas, they didn't have the capacity to brew Brown Shugga this year. Oddly enough, I'm a huge fan of this beer and I've never had the commercial version. I brewed a clone and it has just finished bottle conditioning and I thought that I had finished it just in time to get my hands on the real thing so I could do a side by side.

If anyone has some of this cellaring please let me know so we can work out a trade maybe.

If you're just needing 1 bottle, I can do a trade.

couldnt agree more... the labels caught my attention, the beer keeps me coming back. SO much personality.

OP, any chance youd share that brown shugga clone recipe?

I had some brown masshugana at a holiday ale festival last winter... it was my favorite beer there by far, but certainly not the first one I had-- since most beers were 9%+, I didnt take good enough notes to even consider a clone, but Id love to try something in the neighborhood.

I wonder what this "sucks" beer has going differently for it that made them able to brew it but not the brown shugga. eh, im sure itll be great.

Lagunitas Sucks is out now. It's a really awesome IPA, actually. Gotta agree with everyone about Lagunitas' personality, they have a great sense of humor and I like when a company can poke fun at themselves.
