Attention Stone Fans,

To celebrate 10 glorious years of Stone Imperial Russian Stout, we’ve decided to stock our cooler with bottles of tasty releases from years gone by.  Starting at 4pm sharp on Wednesday, April 14th, stop by the Stone Company Store to see what we’ve got. The per-person bottle limit will vary depending upon the rarity of each particular vintage, and will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Currently we have the following specialty bottles available…

21st Amendment / Firestone Walker/ Stone El Camino (Un)Real Black Ale
2009 Double Bastard Ale
2010 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine
Sawyer’s Triple


Attention Stone Fans,

In celebration of 10 years of IRS, we’re tapping two kegs of 2008 Stone Imperial Russian Stout just for growler fills!  Stop by the Stone Company Store on Wednesday, April 14th starting at 4pm sharp.  Fills are limited to one 2-liter, one 3-liter OR two 1-liter fills per person, and available on a first come, first served basis.

Just a wild guess that this will be going on soon to celebrate 10 years of Stone IRS.

The Force is what gives a brewer his power. It's an energy field created by yeast. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It converts polysaccharides to ethyl alcohol.

MN: Indeed, we are researching the market and talking about potential with some folks.

WI: We are exiting the state due to challenges in keeping a volume flow that would ensure frequent shipments of fresh beer.

While brewing up 2010 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine, Stone Brewing Head Brewer Mitch Steele redirected 30 barrels of the batch into a fermenter containing the Belgian yeast we love from Stone Cali-Belgique IPA.

You mean the same yeast that is pretty much universally disliked?  You're going to use that shit in your two most beloved beers?   :no:

This. 

Even if these turn out decent, they won't be something you can really add to the ongoing verticals, anyway.

I've been trying to decide which verticals to continue and which to abandon (since I know I won't get to all of them).  This sure makes my decision easier.
Take good care of your beer and your beer will take good care of you.

Aged Double Bastard(and fresh) is mighty tasty stuff but damn is IRS titties.  This is definitely a bad idea, though.  Make them a special release alongside the normal versions.

Greg has a book coming out in August, "Stone Brewing Co.'s Guide to Craft Beer: Recipes and Techniques from the Leading American Microbrewery".

Interesting to claim that they're the Leading American Microbrewery.

Quote
A guide to craft beer and microbrewing from America’s leading artisan brewery, featuring clone beer recipes for its top brews, recipes for dishes that showcase the range of flavors and styles of craft beer, and a look at stone’s history and the evolution of the beer industry.

Since its inception in 1996, Stone Brewing Co. has been the fastest growing brewery in the country—beer lovers gravitate to its unique arrogant Bastard ale and go to amazing lengths to drink its special releases made with other leading breweries. This insider’s guide shares recipes for Stone’s celebrated beers, plus special releases including Old Guardian Barley Wine and the anniversary ales. In addition, it features recipes made with beer, such as BBQ duck Tacos with Levitation ale BBQ sauce. With its behind-the-scenes look at the craft beer scene, Stone Brewing Co.’s Guide to Craft Beer will captivate and inspire legions of suds fans nationwide.

Wonder what numbers they're using to make that claim.

During their tour a couple of years ago, I remember a similar claim.  Something on the order of 200-300% growth annually back then.  This was around their 10th anniversary and prior to their big push to the east, they were pretty hard to find east of Colorado at the time.

We've all seen them. Sitting next to liquor store cash registers or in your co-worker's desk drawer. Little plastic sacks of booze. Laden with cartoonish logos, encouraging marketing slogans, and lowest common denominator liquid. Portable shots seem to be a category designed for nothing but despair and the desperate. Those who's pockets are lined with neither money nor good taste.

No longer.

Stone Brewing Co. is proud to announce the release of BastardSHOTZ Gel Pakz, perfect for the Bastard on-the-go who wants to upgrade to first class. Oozing all the flavor and alcohol of a 22 oz. serving of Arrogant Bastard Ale, reduced to a classy, airport-friendly 3-ounce pocket pouch. Designed for connoisseurs with an abundance of taste and a dearth of time, BastardSHOTZ brings sorely needed panache to the pouch-based booze business.

BastardSHOTZ were born in a stroke of molecular gastronomical genius inside the kitchen of our world renowned restaurant. Inspired by his experiments with sous vide cooking and our brewery's centrifuge, Executive Chef Alex Carballo worked with our brewing team on this formerly top-secret project, resulting in a collaborative breakthrough between brewer and chef.
The process pioneered by the chef/brewer team involves ultrasound, a centrifuge and liquid nitrogen, but details remain classified. What's not at all a secret is that the thick brown gel of BastardSHOTZ, when spread liberally over wild acorn-fed Jamón ibérico de bellota, is an outstanding pairing beverage gel. This rare and premium Spanish ham practically begs for the rich, viscous mouthfeel and the classic Arrogant Bastard intense hop and malt overtones.

To help those Bastards with discerning palates boast to the world at large, we have a parallel release of the BastardSHOTZ iPhone and Android app. The iBastard WebSHOTZ app automatically updates 33 social media platforms with geolocated consumption data, ensuring that you'll never drink BastardSHOTZ without alerting the world. This level of synergy between packaging, technology and consumer is an exhilarating experience that, until now, has never been achieved in the industry.

Look for this game-changing product nationwide* at checkout counters this April when we roll out this exciting new product. For more information, please view the exclusive BastardSHOTZ video, "I am a Pouch Brewer." BastardSHOTZ are intended to be consumed responsibly by adults of legal drinking age, numbskull.

Thanks to Stone Enjoy By IPA and our hop-forward brewing style, our brewery is viewed as a vocal proponent of the drink-fresh-beer-now movement. That’s fitting. We believe in that big time—when it’s appropriate. At the same time, we’re not above taking a quality brew (even an IPA) and aging it in oak barrels if we think we can morph that fine ale into an other-worldly, delicious, wine- or spirit-laced concoction. Such is the modus operandi behind our Quingenti Millilitre line of barrel-aged Stone beers.

We started producing this line of flavorful, matured wonders and packaging them in 500-milliliter bottles (hence the series’ name) back in 2011. We were so pleased with these woody, small- batch creations that we’ve upped our number and variety of barrels significantly and plan on rolling out an increased number of Quingenti Millilitre beers in 2013. In doing so, we’re aiming to engage our fans by providing them some really snazzy bottles decked out with a new design that also provides all the technical information any beer geek or fervent collector could desire.

When getting one’s hands on a new Quingenti Millilitre bottle, the first thing a fan’s bound to notice is the cool gargoyle noggin logo at the base of the neck denoting the beer as part of the 2013 series, followed by the name of the beer, its batch number, the type of barrels it was aged in and, if applicable, blend name. But turn that bottle around, for on the flipside is where the geeky gold resides.

The back of each Quingenti Millilitre bottle includes information on the original base beer—the story behind it and ingredients added at different steps throughout the brewing process. Special details include IBUs, ABV, the number of months the beer spent in barrels, the types of barrels used and the percentage of beer from each type of barrel that comprise the blended final version, and the bottling date. To top things off, concise cellar notes are included which explain how our brewing staff developed the optimal blend to bottle as part of this ultra-refined line of artisan craft beers.

To date, the following 2013 Quingenti Millilitre creations have been made available in limited quantities via Stone Company Store locations…

Batch 01: Green Flash/Pizza Port Carlsbad/Stone Highway 78 Scotch Ale aged in Scotch Whisky Barrels: “Chuck/Jeff/Mitch” Blend (Released: 02.10.13)

Batch 02: Green Flash/Pizza Port Carlsbad/Stone Highway 78 Scotch Ale aged in Scotch Whisky Barrels: “Wagner” Blend (Released: 02.10.13)

Batch 03: 2011 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine aged in Bourbon Barrels (Released: 02.24.13)

Batch 04: 2011 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels (Released: 02.24.13)

Batch 05: 2011 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine aged in Red Wine Barrels (Released: 02.24.13)

Batch 06: Stone Ruination IPA aged in Bourbon Barrels (Released: 03.10.13)

So, what’s next? We’re not sure. That’s part of the beauty and part of the difficulty behind a passion project like this. We are, to an extent, at the mercy of the barrels. When tasting our way through our oaken inventory, we’ll find barrels full of beer that positively sing the virtues of aging. But every now and then, we’ll encounter beer we had high hopes for that fails to live up to its potential or, in some cases, devolves into something that doesn’t meet our standards. What we can tell you are some of the beers we’re aging, the barrels they’re sitting in and what our Small Batch and Research Manager Steve Gonzalez thinks of them after multiple taste tests.

Stone Old Guardian aged in White Wine, Red Wine, Bourbon & Rye Whiskey Barrels – “OG is the universal donor and tastes great in all of them.”

Double Bastard Ale aged in Bourbon Barrels – “Amazing!”

Stone Smoked Porter aged in Scotch Whisky, Bourbon & Rye Whiskey Barrels – “It loses some of the smoke and takes on some chocolate.”

Stone Imperial Russian Stout aged in Bourbon & Red Wine Barrels – “Great!”

Stone Cali-Belgique IPA aged in Red Wine Barrels – “This was very popular for good reason and we plan on making more of it. The ester character in that beer from the Belgian yeast and the citrusy flavor of the American hops marry with the fruit of the red wine.”

Our current stock of wooden receptacles includes red wine barrels sourced from wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Temecula Valley and the Central Coast; Sonoma white wine barrels; port wine barrels; sauternes barrels; brandy barrels (including Cognac); Bourbon and rye whiskey barrels; Scotch whisky barrels; plus some others. It’s a lot to keep track of, but Gonzalez, a craft brewing industry veteran who came to us after many years at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Miller and E&J Gallo Winery (where he served as the Quality Manager for William Hill Estates and Louis M. Martini, did a great deal of barrel and oak research for their Premium Wine Division and also helped develop some premium spirit brands) has the smarts, pedigree and palate to beautifully sort it all out.

“When we go through the Quingenti Millilitre process, Stone’s Small Batch Team tastes the barrels individually, then meet as a group once a month,” says Gonzalez. “The Small Batch Team includes myself, Stone President Steve Wagner, CEO Greg Koch and Brewmaster Mitch Steele. We make decisions on what is worthy of being included in the Quingenti Millilitre line.”

Only the best of the best make it into bottles. Anything that doesn’t pass muster, as hard as it is, gets scrapped. Such are the sacrifices that must be made to craft truly outstanding and thought-provoking beer. We think it’s worth it and that our Quingenti Millilitre series proves that point beautifully.

CRIME - Lukcy Basartd Ale with an addition of ultra-hot chilies aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels
PUNISHMENT - 2013 Double Bastard Ale infused with even hotter chilies and aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels
SOUTHERN CHARRED - (too deep under cover for a pic) 2012 Double Bastard Ale aged over a year in three types of barrels, including virgin charred American oak

http://thefullpint.com/beer-news/stone-brewing-issues-official-statement-layoffs/

(Escondido, CA) – Due to an unforeseen slowdown in our consistent growth and changes in the craft beer landscape, we have had to make the difficult decision to restructure our staff. Unfortunately, this comes despite a year that includes the incredible accomplishments of opening two new breweries, which are ultimately expanding the availability of Stone beers and boosting the reputation of American craft beer in Europe.

More recently however, the larger independent craft segment has developed tremendous pressures. Specifically, the onset of greater pressures from Big Beer as a result of their acquisition strategies, and the further proliferation of small, hyper-local breweries has slowed growth. With business and the market now less predictable, we must restructure to preserve a healthy future for our company. Even given this unfortunate circumstance, we will continue to be fiercely independent and, importantly, Stone remains one of the largest – if not the largest – employers in the craft brewing segment.

It is crucial to recognize that this decision was made after much careful consideration. Approximately 5% of all team members were affected, and they were offered a substantial notice period and career transition services. The team members no longer with our company are talented, committed individuals who have held important roles in our organization, and we expect that their talents will be in high demand. This reduction was not a reflection of the work they did, but a careful decision made to ensure that our company will remain competitive and profitable. No additional layoffs are expected within Stone’s foreseeable future.

In summary, we want to emphasize the following points:

This year, we completed several significant investments that have been in the works for a number of years.
A recent decline in domestic growth for the category and for Stone has forced us to restructure in order to preserve our independence in an increasingly competitive category.
Stone remains one of the largest – if not the largest – employer in the craft beer segment and remains dedicated to providing our fans with fresh beer

All over FB here too - especially when they got a bunch of money from the State / City to open the EC Brewery.  All the people against that are crowing about how it was a terrible idea in the first place.

Is "Stone Brewing Company" dead?   There website is now http://www.arrogantbrewing.com/  and on BA they are named Arrogant Brewing. 

Update:  from http://www.arrogantbrewing.com/about-arrogant-brewing
"The emergence of Arrogant Brewing

Massively successful and arrogant as ever, Arrogant Bastard officially split from Stone Brewing in 2015 under his own brewing moniker, Arrogant Brewing, to accelerate his assault on those guilty of macro-industry deceit by perpetrating their heinous crimes against ales and lagers of true quality and depth.

The modern incarnation of Liquid Arrogance will no longer be contained to a single libation, but rather head an entire brewery dedicated to aggressive beers that require taste and sophistication to enjoy. Maybe you’ve heard of those things, but probably not."
