Founded in 1993 in Lagunitas, California, Lagunitas Brewery pretty much embodies the West Coast craft beer revolution. They’re best known for their subversive interpretations of traditional beer styles, complete with irreverent stories and descriptions on the packaging.
A huge success in the US craft beer world, they were the fifth-selling craft brewery in the US in 2014. It hasn’t all been plain sailing though - Lagunitas’ association with marijuana use and the number 420 got them into trouble a few years ago. Whatever you think about their lifestyle philosophy, they certainly make good beer.
