Lucky Bucket Brewing CompanyLa Vista, NE

Everyone loves a great drinking beer; a brew you can drink again and again and enjoy every sip every time. Lucky Bucket Pre-Prohibition style Lager is exactly what the palate craves. Pre-Prohibition style salutes a time when lagers had greater character and more distinct flavor, when beer wasn’t full of the additives found in many of today’s mainstream lagers. Lucky Bucket’s version has a light, malty flavor that’s easy on the palate. Filtered twice, the subtle maltiness nicely balances a floral hop. Dry-hopped with a fresh blend of aromatic West Coast hops, Lucky Bucket Lager is a great session beer.

Lucky Bucket Certified Evil Ale

Lucky Bucket Certified Evil Ale

Belgian Dark Strong Ale9.6% ABV48 IBU

Lucky Bucket Brewing CompanyLa Vista, NE

Certified Evil is an undomesticated beast. A dark, ominous and oak aged creation, its aggressive hops battle its massive malt profile, flavor assaulting all those who bear witness. Malt beverage brewed with brown sugar, raisin juice, molasses, cardamom and orange peel and aged in wine casks. The new Certified Evil recipe is more complex and interesting than the brew from 2008. This new beer blends Certified Evil aged in Cabernet barrels for one year with a younger batch of oaked aged Certified Evil. The combination makes for a vibrant yet smooth and elegant taste. The recipe also includes a wide variety of complex sugars including turbinado sugar, molasses and honey. The result is an amazingly complex beer. Truly a must try to any craft beer lover.
