I’m excited to give you your VERY fist look at a new can (yes cans!) coming from Lagunitas. This is the new 12th of Never Ale and the name refers to Lagunitas Brewing’s desire to be the last (or second-to-last) craft brewery in America to can their beers. This hop-forward beer will hit 5.5%-AbV and you’re looking at the 12oz can. Each of the designs below will feature a different saying at the top of the can and these cans look like they will be packaged in both Petaluma, CA and Chicago, IL. Stay tuned here for release details (I’m hearing the cans will be purple).
UPDATE 22 June 2016 from Lagunitas:
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.
Coming in July 2016.
