Say lah-goo-knee-tuss. Is that ridiculous or what? Have you been jonesing for something more primal and less evolved? If so, then Fire is the element for you. Air, Water, and Earth - are of no use. There is a kind of freedom in burning down the house of fixed expectations and it confers an undeniable lightness to being. How''za bout trying one of our other beers! Maybe a - homicidally hoppy - Lagunitas IPA - or maybe a crispy clean - Lagunitas PILS - whatever. Well, we stood there for a while and watched as the house burned. Watching as the roof collapsed. As the rear wall with the whole back deck still connected surged forward under the weight of the flames, momentarily smothering the flare below only to explode brightly with a rush of cinders and a wall of fresh heat thrust in our direction. What artifacts had just burst into the night air? A wedding dress? A box of old polaroids? It was all gone or going now. The blaze was making something new at the same time. Something more primal and less evolved. By morning those weighty things of the past will have been reduced to vapor, heat, light, and cinders; receptive to the slightest wishful breeze. There is a certain kind of freedom in burning down the house of fixed expectations and it confers an undeniable lightness to being. We didn''t invent these truths; they invented us. What is it all got to do with beer? Cheers! Brewed in Sonoma County California since 1993.
