#quadgoals, a Lion’s Share IV Q&A

#QUADGOALSimg   Starting this week, Lion’s Share IV will start roaring onto store shelves and into bars and restaurants across the state. I took a few moments to talk about this year’s anniversary release with Tim Deemer, LBC Lead Brewer and the owner of the most majestic, lion-like mane of hair in the company. We touch on keeping up with beer trends, the role of traditions in the brewing field, and what he was aiming to accomplish in brewing Lion’s Share IV, his… quad goals, if you will.

Everybody’s Gonna Pay… An IPA Q&A

TrollTollIPAQA
Starting this week, Troll Toll will emerge from the darkness and make it’s way to stores and taps across the state. To commemorate the arrival of this legendary beast, I took a moment to again chat with Shawn Vail, Head Brewer here at Lakewood Brewing Co. As our most elite hoperative and a troll hunter of some repute, I knew he was the man to teach me the ways of vicious Troll Toll, and his bitter IPA brethren. Beware the night, man, for the Troll Toll cometh…

BBT ’16 Barrel Aging Q&A with Shawn Vail

BBT16QANEW_Shawn

To mark this week’s barreling of BBT 2016, I took a few minutes to chat with Shawn Vail, Head Brewer of Lakewood Brewing Co. He heads the company’s barrel aging program and is the authority on the matter here at LBC. He gave me a crash course in barrel aging, BBT, and all things round, wooden and filled with delicious, delicious beer.

It’s a Sock Hop at the Stewpot!

Last summer, we got off on the wrong foot with a local publication after some rather heelish remarks on their part comparing our beer to the footwear of the homeless. Their mean-spirited comments made light of both our commitment to brewing DFW’s finest craft brews and the plight of the city’s less fortunate, and let me tell you, we were ready to kick some dust up over them.

While we’re not one to let people walk all over us like that, we cooled our heels and decided to use the opportunity to help those most in need. With some assistance from our friends at PXP Solutions, The Common Table, The Trinity River Tap House and Alamo Drafthouse DFW, we dug in our heels and socked away charitable donations for The Stewpot. The unnamed offenders even joined in to toe the line, and together over 1300 pairs were handed out to Dallas’ homeless and at-risk population.

Feel the Love with Raspberry Temptress

Keep an eye out for our new Revival-style Raspberry Temptress glass!

Keep an eye out for these new Revival pint glasses at a bar near you! Check our calendar for upcoming events.

February is for lovers, and we here at Lakewood love our beer… Each and every batch means something special to all of us. Were you to ask around, though, there’s one particular beer that stands apart from all our others—our one brew love, as it were. We call her The Temptress… and there’s no Temptress that steals our heart quite like Raspberry Temptress.
What makes Raspberry Temptress so enticing? We take the already alluring Temptress milk stout and set her up with nearly a ton of fresh Oregon raspberry purée to really get her juices flowing. This lovely lady spends a small honeymoon conditioning and really getting to know her raspberry beau before we send her off to kegs and 22oz. bottles, where she makes her way to store shelves and taps to help spread the love.
Sadly, Raspberry Temptress isn’t a relationship built to last, as this Seduction Series release is only around for a limited time. Look for her all over DFW, Amarillo, Abilene, Wichita Falls, and surrounding areas. The hottest passions fade first, so get your hands on her now before she leaves you wondering what could have been.
