12th-of-Never-Can

Lagunitas Brewing is breaking new ground with its first ever beer released in cans — 12th of Never. Lagunitas calls the magical, mystical 12th of Never a deliciously bitter-esque pale-ish ale with a hoppy tropicalian bite that will be released nationally in July 2016. It will be the very first Lagunitas beer delivered in 12oz minikegs (cans). The brewery says “it’s everything we’ve learned about making hop-forward beer expressed in a moderate voice.”

“I said we would be the last craft brewer to do cans…it might be about time. We decided that beer lovers think cans are cool and we recognize they can go places glass cannot.” says Lagunitas founder, Tony Magee. “This is an exciting new option for Lagunitas fans, and we are stoopid stoked at the opportunity for them to take us to all those new, nelophobic locations.”



12th of Never Description:

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…
