Damaged Lagunitas Brewing Equipment At The Dock

You may recall that earlier this month, the Lagunitas Brewhouse [Was] Destroyed At Sea. Lagunitas owner Tony Magee, through his Twitter Feed, just posted a number of new photos of the equipment as it arrived at the Port of Stockton this weekend. I’d say my usual “enjoy,” but it’s a little on the painful-to-see side.

The Lauter Tun at the Port of Stockton.

The most-damaged side.

A close-up of the damage.

And this is a shot of “the crane what done it,” that is smooshed the brewhouse lauter tun.

And yet another damaged piece of equipment.

    So is this really why Brown Shugga did not get made this year? Lagunitas mea culpa implied that they didn’t get around to making it, prompting the release of ‘Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale’ as the replacement.

      No, the Brown Shugga announcement was made well before the incident with the brewhouse being damaged at sea. In fact, I wrote about that October 10, nearly a month before the crane smooshed the lauter tun, which was in early November.
