COED's Beer of the Week: Lagunita's A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale

Tired of drinking lukewarm Keystone Light out of a 6-month-old keg? Trying to move past Bud Light Limes and Coronas? Crushed enough 30-racks to last a lifetime? The point is, you’re likely at that stage in your life (or close to it) where you want to drink better beer.
Don’t feel bad, as it happens to all of us at one point or another. While shitty beer never really goes away — trust me, stale kegs and 30’s are still very much a thing in post-grad life — decent beer becomes further appreciated and desired the older you get. While I get f*cked up way less than I did in college, I actually kind of drink more now because I have a delicious new beer with my dinner every night. And buddy, let me let you in on a little secret … Shock Top and Magic Hat #9 don’t count.
So, with all that in mind, we decided to set the very obtainable (and enjoyable) goal of trying, and hopefully enjoying, a new beer every week.

Me in the meeting finding out COED is going to allocate budget to buy me beer.


From popular IPA’s to obscure chocolate stouts, this is COED’s Beer of the Week.


Beer History

via Lagunitas:

This special ale is something fairly new under the sun. It’s got a lot of wheat, it’s rich with hops, it finishes dry. We’ve watched with some amusement as the internet beer rating sites argues over how to ‘classify’ it. We’re in the camp with Japhy Ryder when he declares to Ray Smith that “Comparisons are odious!” You ever notice how everything has to be today’s version of yesterday’s whatever. Well, whatEver. Sometimes we wonder what the world would be like if everything was perceived for what it is, and not what it reminds you of. The sun would rise everyday as if for the first time, you’d wake as if newly born, you’d see your lover next to you anew, the air would smell like flowers, work would be like the first day back in school, a beer would make your eyes roll back in your head in ecstasy… well, maybe not… but you get the idea…
