In 2010, it was the nation's 17th largest craft brewer, according to the Brewers Association, an industry trade group. If it produced 1.2 million cases — its full capacity after the expansion — Lagunitas would have been the second-largest craft brewer in the United States last year, behind only The Boston Beer Co., which makes Samuel Adams.
I knew Lagunitas was having trouble meeting increased demand, but I had no idea how big they were getting. Good for them, and good for the United States.
I’ve been rocking this bad boy for three years. It’s pretty well seasoned now. You’ll hear lots of Stanley Brothers, Vern Williams, Flatt & Skruggs and Bill Monroe. I tend to favor older recordings over modern ones. I recommend listening to it on your tiny smart phone speaker.
