About Lagunitas Brewing Company:
The Lagunitas Brewing Company is a brewery founded in 1993 in Lagunitas, California, USA. They are known for iconoclastic interpretations of traditional beer styles, and irreverent descriptive text and stories on their packaging. The company is the fifth top selling craft brewery in the US, as of 2014.
Since the mid-2000s, Lagunitas has been one of the fastest-growing craft breweries in the United States, increasing from 27,000 barrels in 200] to 106,000 barrels in 2010. On April 9, 2012, Lagunitas announced plans for a new Chicago-based brewery equipped with a 250 barrel brew house which will also has a 600,000 barrel capacity.
In May 2012 it was announced that owner Tony Magee had signed a lease for a location in the city’s Douglas Park neighborhood in North Lawndale, “that will put him in a space owned by film studio Cinespace…for at least 20 years.” The Chicago brewery started producing beer on April 18, 2014.
