2019 Beers

2019 has us super excited! We have added some amazing new beers to the lineup that will satisfy the tastes of those craft beer aficionados as well new craft drinkers and those looking for alternatives to high ABV spirits and Flavored Malt Beverages.

“I’ve never been this excited to release a programming calendar. We have been working hard, looking at past and present trends, listening to our fans, and doing a lot of doodling on the whiteboard. We feel like we have a range of diverse beers that will be incredibly popular with not only our fans, but with new craft beer drinkers as well.” – Wim Bens, President Lakewood Brewing

 First off, we have added Lemonale, a bright and refreshing year-round ale with just the right amount of lemon. This “serious ale with a lemon wedgie” will be hitting shelves just in time for patio brunch season.

For our seasonal offerings, the stunningly delicious and beautiful Black Currant Artsy Tartsy will be making its debut in cans and draft after headlining in The Taproom. We’ll see the return Punkel with a fresh new look, now in cans. Finally the smash hit, Cold Front IPA will be back for round 2.

 Our Seduction Series will see four editions: We get the good times rolling with French Quarter Temptress, then Raspberry Temptress makes her return this summer. Peanut Butter Temptress will be back thanks to the amazing fan support and demand, and lastly we’ll close out the year with NEW Salted Caramel Temptress.

 Our brand new Small Batch Series will be showcasing our brewers’ passion projects, secret recipes, and happy accidents in 4-pack cans and draft. These will be very exclusive, very rad, and very limited in the market. Earthly Highs, a Tart and Juicy IPA, will kick off the shenanigans in February.

 We’re back at it once again with Jack Daniels! We have received a literal truckload of fresh JD barrels and they will certainly be put to good use. Be on the lookout for NEW Jack’d Up Punch and the return of Tennessee Temptress. Available on draft only. Additionally, we have revised our Barrel Works releases to be in a more manageable 375ml format. B-Funk, a brett saison, will be in the market in spring followed by Rest In Peaches in the fall.

 

We love to hear from our fans! Hit us up on social media, or stop by The Taproom and let us know what you think of the new lineup and what you want to see in 2020. Cheers!

Lakewood IPA joins the family

Believe it or not, we actually did it. You may have thought we either completely against the idea or just too good for it, but nay – we actually did it. Lakewood Brewing Company went and made an American IPA, and not just any old AIPA, but an American IPA made with Texans in mind. That’s right, we’re announcing the release of (the appropriately named) Lakewood IPA to our year-round lineup. This easy-drinking IPA is our first for the style, having brewed a Belgian-style IPA (Hop Trapp), a Session IPA (Hopochondria), and an Imperial India Black Lager (Goatman) over the years.
Brewed with Mosaic, Citra, Mandarina, and Bravo hops, this 7% alc/vol, 50 IBU India pale ale bursts with notes of papaya, tangerine, and grapefruit notes. With a balanced malt bill and a slightly dry finish without an overly-aggressive bitter bite, Lakewood IPA is a great choice for both seasoned “hop heads” and those new to the style.
We’re excited to finally release an American IPA too, as many of you die-hard fans have been asking us to brew one for awhile now. Well, we heard you. However, as exciting as this is, it’s also a little bittersweet for us (no pun intended.) Lakewood IPA is replacing our recently retired IPAs – Hop Trapp, Hopochondria, and Goatman – in our year-round lineup. It was just time. *sniff*
You can now find Lakewood IPA both on taps and store shelves in 6 pack cans around D-FW, with other markets to follow where LBC is sold in the coming weeks. A list of launch events across North Texas, including pint nights & tap takeovers, will be announced weekly on our Facebook page, as well as right here.
You’re also invited to join us for the ‘official’ Launch Party for Lakewood IPA on Friday, March 9th at Happiest Hour, Dallas’s new patio bar & lounge located just steps from American Airlines Center. Specials for the evening will include happy hour pricing on all LBC beers from 4-8pm, $5 pints of IPA or $7 23oz IPA drafts – plus $5 IPA, Lager & All Call cans, and $20 mix-and-match buckets of LBC cans. Swag and glassware will also be available (while supplies last.) Our entire crew will be out there partying, so feel free to stop by, slap some fives, meet and greet, whatever it is you feel like doing – we don’t bite. Well, maybe some of the back-of-the-house dudes.
Start making room in your fridge, ’cause we have a feeling this may start taking up a permanent spot in there.
