They're connected because when Lagunitas expanded into a new brewhouse in the past, they didn't have the ability to brew Brown Shugga that particular year; they brewed Sucks instead as a replacement. The next year, Brown Shugga was back, but everyone asked about Sucks and wanted more of it. Hence, more Sucks.
I was about to pull the trigger on Sucks when I saw something about Brown Shugga on the label. The BS is just a little bit too much on the sweet for me. So, it's not actually a similar product then?
