In the days before kegs and bottles, beer enthusiasts would have to cart a bucket to their local brewery, fill it up, and carry it (gently) home. Lucky Bucket Brewing Company pays tribute to brewing history both in its name and its traditional brewing techniques.
Lucky Bucket’s flavorsome creations are crafted inside an 18,000-square-foot brew house. Gleaming silver tankards give birth to bottles of a pre-Prohibition-style lager, a pleasantly floral IPA, and the Belgian strong ale Certified Evil—made by combining a young, oak-aged ale with an older batch aged in cabernet barrels for a year and allowed to form curmudgeonly opinions.
Lucky Bucket also operates a secondary craft distillery, Sòlas, which turns out the super-premium Joss Vodka. Hops-heads can take a tour of the bustling brewery and proclaim fealty with merchandise such as T-shirts and hats emblazoned with beer logos and the autographs of noble hops.
