Beer God’s Notes

Absolutely crushable.  Not in a bad way either.  12th of never is a really nice and refreshing pale ale from Lagunitas Brewing.  I kept seeing this all summer, and I kept wanting to try it but I never pulled the trigger.  I wish I had, I would have found another golfing and after/during mowing the lawn beer.

Lagunitas never lets me down with the hops, and there are still some here, but they aren’t over the top making this a great, easy-drinking beer.



Tropically Hoppy. Light, yet Full-Bodied. Bright and Citrusy. Word.

The magical, mystical 12th of Never is a blend of Old and New School hops that play bright citrus, rich coconut, and papaya-esque flavors, all on a solid stage of English puffed wheat. Tropically hoppy. Light, yet full-bodied. Bright and citrusy. The 12th of Never Ale is everything we’ve learned about making hop-forward beer expressed in a moderate voice. Pale, cold, slightly alcoholic and bitter. It’s all we know.

These 12oz mini-kegs (AKA cans) are an exciting new option for us, and we are stoopid stoked at the opportunity for y’all to take us to all those new, nelophobic locations…

And then at the very moment that the lands beyond the River Styx froze over, as the last pig took flight, as the last  winged monkey departed the darkly fragrant netherlands, when wishes become horses and all of the beggars rode, when a moon rose newly blued on the morning of the 12th of never, and the second to last craft brewery in America pressed the green button on their canning line. We wanted be the Last Small Brewer in the U.S. to can their beer and maybe by now we are…
