Seems that Lagunitas purchased Summit's old kegging line.  Kegging line from Lagunitas is going to FFF.

We have decided that 2010's Spring seasonal bomber will be a brown ale called "Wilco Tango Foxtrot Ale". This Amuses me.

This. Pretty damn affordable already... super fresh will be nice.

i've seen Hop Stoopid as low as $3.49 in Madison... up to $4.99 here.

maybe that $4.99 comes down a bit.  YES IT MATTERS.

http://www.beerpulse.com/2012/04/lagunitas-brewing-founder-sounds-off-on-craft-beer-industry/

On breweries using public funds to expand:

Magee: My peer brewers…it’s kind of a corporate approach to running a business. You got to know that they went deeply into the public trough to fund the brewing operation which I could never do in a million years. What that yielded were state employment grants, tax deferments and special dispensation of cash. If anyone reads the papers, it is a pretty dry trough. So what’s a f&^$*#@ rich business like those doing that for rather than just bearing their own weight and bringing value to a community? After we did the thing in Chicago, someone from the Mayor’s office was talking to someone we were working with and they were a little of upset that we hadn’t gone to them first to allow us all to make the announcement together. There was a desire from the political world to be involved in these sorts of things.

Remember last month's surprising announcement that Lagunitas, one of the nation's fastest-growing breweries, would build a massive outpost in Chicago to furnish beer to the eastern half of the country?

Well, it's on. Lagunitas founder and owner Tony Magee said today he signed a lease that will put him in a space owned by film studio Cinespace, a former steel plant at 18th and Rockwell streets, for at least 20 years.

"...btw... the Sucks WILL become a year-round brew and when it does it will be in a 32oz bomber (think of it as a mini growler), but things are going a little slow for that because the glass company is dragging its ass on getting the bottle ready for us. I have read that some here think that a 32oz bottle is stoopid, but then we already have a beer called Stoopid, so I'm cool with that... lol...... "


also:

"New Enjoy your two formats of Ruination! I will be putting the Sucks in multiple formats, 32oz mini-growlers and 15.5 gal kegs, prolly 7.25 gallon kegs too (both of which will yeild 16oz pints!)... and of course there'll be full-sized growlers.

In structuring a brand I am careful to give more than a little thought to how I want to present it and to what end. Notice that we don't do cans. I suppose that some would say that brewers should put every flavor they brew in every package possible to gain as many sales as possible from as many peeps as possible, but isn't that the kind of crap that BIG brewers get into? How about a 24-pack, no- how about a 30-pack suitcase of aluminum cans of Sucks? Why not both?

I just plain think that a 32oz bottle of Sucks next to the 32oz bottle of King Cobra sounds like fun.

It would be a nice touch if they made a ghetto bag for them too.  Maybe even have that be the label sort of like De Ranke, etc.

@lagunitasT
Have I mentioned the visit I got from the Budweiser guy who did the deal to buy Goose? We had dinner, a burger, I think. He was shopping.

@lagunitasT
LagunitasTHe was a nice fella. Didn’t exactly say what he wanted, but the three calls to meet seemed clear enuf. I told I’d rather die on payroll.


@lagunitasT
LagunitasTSelling ones brewery is selling all of ones best friend’s careers, their hearts, the portion of their lives they spent working for you.

@lagunitasT
After meetin Andy Goeler, the guy Bud assigned t’Goose, the guy fr St. Louis w/the huevos t’welcme us t’Chicago, I’d rather put out my eyes.

@lagunitasT
LagunitasTI said I’d not poach from local breweries to staff Chicago, but I think we could make an exception for Goose folks… Call it ‘sanctuary’…

Interesting interview with McGee. 
http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/tony-magee-interview-lagunitas-humanities-festival-craft-beer/Content?oid=19743516

How he explains sale to Hieneken.  This quote "If we don't measure up to the Brewers Association's definition of physical beauty, I'll just say, there's more of us ugly motherfuckers than you anyway. "

Also Tony's brother-in-law is Ray Daniels.    Small world.

Wicked Weed sold to ABInBev, too.
Quote from: J-Rod
I ended up drinking 9 times my body weight in beer, broke three glasses over my head, 7 over others, ordered up 17 hookers for a little afterparty, held a cabbie hostage while running his cab through the Madison capitol doors, and I grabbed gator's ass.

Hypocritical on Magee's part as he criticized others selling in the past. Can't say I didn't see it coming after they sold a stake to Heineken a couple years back.
