<small>COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION</small>This sad holiday season we didn’t have the brewing capacity to make our favorite seasonal brew, the widely feared BrownShugga’ Ale. You see we had a couple of really good years (thank you very much) and so heading into this season while we are awaiting the January delivery of a new brewhouse we are jammin’ along brewing 80 barrels of IPA and PILS and such every 3 hours. A couple of months back we realized that since we can only brew a mere 60 barrels of Shugga’ every 5 hours, that we were seriously screwed. For every case of Shugga’ brewed, we’d short 3 cases of our favorite daily beers. It’s a drag. This year, we brewed something that we think is also cool and brews more like our daily brews. The new brewhouse will help insure this kind of failure never happens again. It’s a mess that we can not brew our BrownShugga’ this year and we suck for not doing it. There is nothing cool about screwing this up this badly and we know it. Maybe we can sue our own sorry selves. There is no joy in our hearts this holiday and the best we can hope for is a quick and merciful end. F*@& us. This totally blows. Whatever. We freaking munch moldy donkey butt and we just want it to be all over... So this substitute beer is a ‘Cereal Medley’ of Barley, Rye, Wheat, and Oats…. Full of complexishness from the 4 grains, and weighing in at 7.85% abv, Then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous hop flavor.

Lots of Lagunitas in these parts and I have not tried that one. Mental note to self.
I've become a fan of their stuff. The IPA now has good distribution in our area, and its become my go-to beer in a couple of the local pubs (is Charlie Browns technically a pub?). Seems to be displacing some Sierra taps. Will go look for this one tomorrow, thanks for posting.

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Was it in the year old knock out bin?
Weird. I just picked up some Brown Sugga.
This happened last year as I recall. They could not brew Brown Sugga so they came up with this other beer. Evidently this new beer went over well so they are brewing it again, as well as Brown Sugga (which is tasty BTW).

Same here. Seems I can get brown shugga without any trouble.
