From the article:
Founded in 1993, Lagunitas Brewing Company has a core of supportive beer lovers who want to nurture the creation of consistently good beer. The brewery is willing to do anything and is “capable of making beer out of goat’s milk, brambles, and asphalt on the surface of the moon, if need be,” according to its Facebook page. And it’s the brewery’s dedication to experimentation that has won over beer lovers across the company. “Tony Magee’s vision and ‘the glass is always half full’ attitude toward life is reflected in his beer,” says Liz Garibay of the blog Tales, Taverns, & Towns. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a Lagunitas beer I didn’t like.” The California-based company recently made an announcement that it would be opening a 250,000-barrel-a-year facility in Chicago in order to cater to the Eastern U.S. With creative brews, passionate employees, and a commitment to serve, Lagunitas is definitely one of the best.
