Lagunitas has produced some strange and "colorful" names for their beers. Here we introduce two of these.
"Lagunitas Sucks(Brown Shugga' Substitute Ale)" Due to an accident in early 2011 preventing shipment of Brown Shugga' Lagunitas had to come up with a substutute. In their despair they named this substitute brew with the self depreciating name "Lagunitas Sucks(Brown Shugga' Substitute Ale)" . It turns out that the resulting brew was pretty darned good and undeserving of the unfortunate name, however, it is what it is and this great little ale is stuck with it. "Wilco Foxtrot Tango (WTF)" This beer expresses irritation with the lack of economic recovery which was supposed to have begun in 2008 by naming this beer Wilco Tango Foxtrot or WTF as in "WTF is going on with the economy?" Actually, the proper military naming convention should be "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" but then this is beer not whiskey, which would result in mislabelled product causing customs clearance folks to call us asking "WTF"? So the word Wilco (implying compliance) was substituted for Whiskey and our beer was delivered wihtout problem. If you find this explanation unclear please do not hesitate to tap the nearest Antenna America person on the shoulder and ask "WTF"?
