Its sooo good on tap! I had it at Danger Abbey during the CBC and WBC here in San Diego. I can't wait to try Compunction, and about 20 other beers. Does anyone have any beers on the list that are must drinks?

no Wisconsin :tinfoilhat:
It's shown up on the shelves of Woodlake Market in Kohler by request of a certain loyal customer :unsure:
Oaked AB, Pale, IPA, Ruination ($16 for a 6-pack- is this a good price?) all 6-12 oz bottles and no singles. No bombers until the manager there sees how well it sells.

MORE SOUR FEST INFO!!!

From another forum. Posted by Peter the guy who is in charge of getting the beer for the fest

"I received a spot of great news Monday afternoon from my friend Gabe up at Alaska's Midnight Sun brewing. He is sending us a barrel of his "Good Mojo", a beer more than seven years in the making.
Kevin from Artisan Ales came through with a Barrel of Boon Lambic, which be a great contrast to the bottles of boon we have on the list.
Mark Jilg from Craftsman Brewing in Pasadena has also add another, "El Prieto Sour Black Ale".
We still have several days befor the big day and there is a good possibility that we'll have several more additions.
Stay tuned.
Peter"


Wow the lineup just gets better!!! See you all Sunday!

Looks like Stone is finally coming to GA in September according to Green's website and confirmed second-hand in the BA South-Atlantic group.   :pickle:   Also sounds like FL and the Carolinas may be included as well.

5 cases of Stone Cali-Belgique Belgian IPA are getting delivered to my store Tuesday/Wednesday.

Also, I'm getting an unknown amount of the Stone-Mikkeller-Alesmith Belgian-Style Tripel the same day.

Growler Fill Fanatics!

 

It’s Erick again with your weekly growler fill update.  This week I’ve decided to put on 2008 Stone Imperial Russian Stout because it is so darn good.  Plain and simple, I love this beer! We start pouring on Friday at 11am.

 

CODE RED!  CODE RED!  We have 2006 Double Bastard Ale for growler fills this Saturday night starting at 8pm sharp!  We will be pouring a limited number of kegs and it is expected to go quickly!  Remember, “Double Bastard Ale is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak.  Only the Worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk.”  You’ll kick yourself if you miss out on this one.

 

If that wasn’t enough, we currently have Stone Cali-Belgique IPA on tap!  Come and get it!

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Cheers,

 

Erick Gordon

Stone Store Supervisor

Mmmm...Double Bastard :banned:

Growler Fans,

It’s time to gather your growlers because we have a couple of fantastic fills this weekend.  Starting Friday, we will be pouring Stone 11th Anniversary Ale.  This beer may look like a porter, but brings the intense hop flavors of an IPA.

This Saturday night starting at 8pm, we have decided to pour 2006 Double Bastard Ale for growlers fills.  If you are an Iron Maiden fan like I am, then you will enjoy getting your growler filled while we pump some classic Maiden tunes through the sound system.  With great tunes and a great archived great beer on tap, please be prepared to rub elbows with fellow Stone fans for a little bit while we fill.

We currently are pouring Stone 12th Anniversary Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, Stone Cali Belgique IPA and 2007 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine.   

Have a great weekend!

Cheers,
Erick Gordon

I was wondering how I got a 12 ounce bottle of Stone RIS in a trade last week.  The guy I got it from works for Stone, fwiw.  This is the same guy who traded me the BA Alesmith for 2 KBS and 2 Yeti 12oz.  This guy is on my permanent go to list, after all this.

How late are they open? 

*edit* 11pm.  Gonna be a close call leaving the Lost Abbey party.  Not sure I want to drive that far either.

I wonder if they'll still be pouring at 11am the next day.  I'd assume so

I wouldn't turn down a bottle of the 11th Anniversary but it's not nearly the beer that 10th Anniversary was.  If 11 had the flavor of the 10 and the appearance of the 11, I might be swayed, but only because I was intrigued by a black IPA, which is apropos of nothing.  In the end, it's about the taste.

Yesterday I noticed that a 6-pack of Ruination is like $16.99 in WI, while you can buy singles for $2.39.  Better off building our own Ruination 6-pack at that price.  Same was true for a couple other beers.

Yeah, a place I'm headed to after work has Oaked AB for 15.99 a sixer. On the single shelves it's 1.69/bottle. I'm hoping Ruination gets moved there soon as well.

Yeah, the novelty of black IPA's is fun and all...but the Stone 10th is in the top 5 DIPA's of all time.  It is right there with Dreadnaught and Dorado.

Yesterday I noticed that a 6-pack of Ruination is like $16.99 in WI, while you can buy singles for $2.39.  Better off building our own Ruination 6-pack at that price.  Same was true for a couple other beers.

$11.99 for Ruination 6 packs at my local Woodman's.
Take good care of your beer and your beer will take good care of you.

Here is what you need to know:

    * Bottles of Sawyer’s Triple will be available for sale at the Stone Company Store starting Tuesday, November 11th.  The 22 oz bottles will sell for $6 each (plus tax and CRV).

    * Sawyer’s Triple will be available on draft as well at the Stone World Bistro & Gardens for $6 a pint.
       
    * As before, absolutely 100% of the proceeds will go to charity; specifically, to Fight ALD!, the research and education foundation started by Janis Sherwood.
       
    * Although the sale of Stone Special Release beers has often been limited to 2 or 3 bottles per person, there will be no such limit for Sawyer’s Triple.  Please note, however, no “case discount” will be in effect in order to provide Fight ALD with as much funding as possible.
       
    * Currently, Sawyer’s Triple is available for sale exclusively here at Stone.

I hope that you will join me, Team Stone, and the rest of our devoted fans in paying tribute to a noble spirit and in promoting a noble cause.  Here’s to your health, generosity, and fulfillment!

-Ken Wright

Looks like a pretty interesting selection there for when the first food bank can gets full.  I don't know if that sounds delicious or just odd...  ???

So about 30 growlers or a bit less.  That'll be a cluster #### to get a hold of.

Not really about 30.  Depends on the size of the growlers people bring.  I think they have one, two, and three liter growlers.

Aaaaah ok.  I was thinking 1/2 gallon growlers like we're use to.  Still gonna be a heck of a time to get one of those bad boys.

I was checking the Stone website a few minutes ago and I thought the following link has some cool/exciting/important news (especially for the upcoming Stone Sour Fest!).  Stone hired Dr. Bill as the new Beverage Coordinator of Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens...who is Dr. Bill?

Dr Bill's first email...
Quote
Hello everyone! Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Bill Sysak (known as “ Dr. Bill” in the craft beer community), and I’m the new Beverage Coordinator at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. To find out more about me and some of my plans for the Bistro click here: http://blog.stonebrew.com/?p=706

 

 Now on to a more important topic—exciting new beers I’m putting on tap tomorrow, Saturday, March 21st:

 

Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers - A fabulous spicy twist on our classic Stone Smoked Porter with an added depth of flavor (5.9 ABV).
Stone 07.07.07 Vertical Epic Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels - Aged for a total of eight months in French and American Oak Red Wine Barrels. This barrel aging has added a whole new level of complexity and smoothness to the beer, and helps demonstrate its aging capability (8.4 ABV).
2008 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine Aged in Red Wine Barrels - Anyone who has tasted beers with me in the last 30 years knows I’m usually quite verbose regarding aroma and flavor descriptors. When I tried this beer today I had one word: “WOW!” Do not miss this beer! (11.26 ABV)
If you just can’t wait until tomorrow for your Stone fix, I have the Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Beans on cask right now!
I’ll also be tasting, judging, and hanging out at our AHA Rally tomorrow, March 21st, from 1-4pm. Feel free to say hi and discuss any of these tasty Stone beers.
Cheers!
Bill

Our Pilots Are Looking For a Few Good Flights


Hello everyone, “Dr” Bill here. We have some exciting new beers coming on tap this week at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens.

This Thursday, we’re putting some special brews on tap to celebrate the arrival of our friends Will from Cambridge Brewing Co. and James from BrewDog. Will and James will be brewing our next collaboration beer with Mitch Steele the following day, and to honor the spirit of collaboration, we’re putting previous Stone Collaboration Ales and select BrewDog beers on tap. To top it off, the pilot brew for their collaboration will also be available to taste for those who have made reservations.

While we’re sharing pilot brews, we thought we would tap a few of the pilot brews that our talented brewers create, but that never reach the general public. I’m happy to inform you, our loyal customers, that this Thursday, March 26th, Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens will have not one, but FIVE of these pilot brews on tap! Here’s what we’ll have:

Pilot Brew #1: Stone Imperial Red
Pilot Brew #2: Stone Imperial Porter
Pilot Brew #3: Stone Belgian Porter with Vanilla Bean and Tangerine Peel
Pilot Brew #4: Stone Peated Scotch Ale
Pilot Brew #5: Stone Everything but the Kitchen Sink Stout

The beer goodness doesn’t stop there. As an added treat, we are going to have both a filtered and unfiltered version of Stone Cali-Belgique IPA on tap. Our brewers are looking for feedback on these two versions, so please try both and let your server or bartender know which you prefer, or you can e-mail me at Bill-dot-Sysak at Stonebrew.com and I’ll give the brewers your input.

Don’t miss the opportunity to try these unique Stone Brewing Co. Beers!

Cheers,

Bill
