Press Release: Lakewood Brewing Co. Announces 2017

Lakewood Brewing Company Announces Much Anticipated 2017 Craft Beer Releases
  Dallas, TX: Lakewood Brewing Company has been ‘brewing up’ a great lineup of 2017 releases. Customers across North Texas and other regions can look forward to these upcoming craft beers in LBC’s 5th year of brewing customer favorites.
“We took 2016 to look at what was working and what needed to be tweaked. We’ve been hard at work preparing for this all year and we’re excited to announce our 2017 releases,” stated Wim Bens, Founder & President of Lakewood Brewing Company.
Goatman Imperial India Black Lager makes its triumphant return in early spring in 4-pack bottles. This 9.3% ABV brew originally made its debut as the third release in LBC’s Legendary Series, one of its most popular…and is the first to be brought back. Dry hopped with copious amounts of Simcoe, this dank, roasty, malty beer is described as a ‘hybrid between a German Schwarzbier and an Imperial Cascadian Black IPA.’
The Seduction Series will be moving from 22oz bottles to its new packaging in 4-pack bottles. In addition to introducing a fifth variation to the Seduction Series lineup later in the year, LBC will also be barrel-aging a portion of all the Seduction Series as very limited, draft-only releases throughout the year.
Red Wine Till & Toil, a fan favorite, will be in limited release, 22oz. bottles for the first time. Artsy Tartsy, LBC’s fruited Berliner Weisse, will make a return this summer as a refreshing draft only release, while Zomer Pils will now be sold exclusively in cans and dry-hopped with a combo of Lemondrop, Sterling, and Saaz hops.
“We keep listening to our fans and our brew crew keeps innovating delicious new beers,” Wim emphasized. “I’m very excited to share these with craft beer fans across the state.”

#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…

Feel the Love with Raspberry Temptress

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.
Schol!

Start the year in mint condition

We’re happy to announce that our brand new Seduction Series release, Sin Mint Temptress, is out now on area DFW bar and restaurant taps! The fourth release in this series pays homage to a little guilty pleasure in the form of a very popular cookie. This exhilirating offering infuses mint, vanilla, and a touch of graham cracker into our decadent imperial milk stout post-fermentation, creating a fresh, cooling treat that will leave you craving more. Harmony never tasted so good.

Keep your eyes out for her at your favorite drinking spot or growler station. Schol!
