3/20/16: Equinox Ale and the Spring Equinox

The Equinox isn't just the first day of Spring or the namesake for the Seasonal Lagunitas Equinox Ale, it's where the Sun passes the celestial equator and creates a nearly equal amount of Daylight and Night in one day.  "Equi" is Latin for "equal" and "Nox" is Latin for "night" … hence the name.

First brewed in 1995... brewed today in a time of change. This Seasonal beer's a creamy, pale oat ale hopped up with a huge charge of Equinox and Simcoe hops for a piney, eucalyptus, cedar, sprucey, forest blast.
