Stone R&R Coconut IPA

This collaboration beer is a celebration of the homebrewing spirit and an example of counter-intuitive thoughts coalescing beautifully into something exceptional. Case in point is the seamless marrying of toasted coconut and a hop bill brimming with tropical fruit notes. Longtime homebrewers Robert Masterson and Ryan Reschan teamed up to enter this beer in our annual American Homebrewers Association-sanctioned brewing competition and, though it was the first beer they’d ever brewed together, they sailed past the competition like a tropical ocean breeze on a pleasure cruise bound for India. After winning, the duo reached out to their friend, highly decorated homebrewer and 2011 AHA Ninkasi Award winner Paul Sangster of the newly opened Rip Current Brewing Company, to assist in dialing in the recipe. Together with Sangster’s skilled partner Guy Shobe and Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele, Masterson and Reschan present fellow craft beer enthusiasts with a most delicious and original style of IPA. Open, enjoy, rest, relax and repeat as needed.

Available now for $6.99 a bottle, but supplies are limited!

Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA

Our latest anniversary beer, starring an all-German cast of malt and hops, is yet one more glorious example of a Stone IPA brewed outside the box. Our brewers have brought their experiments with German hops to fruition, leaving convention behind to create this hefty IPA entirely with pilsner malts. These provide a superbly crisp mouthfeel, while a unique mix of noble and new-school hop varieties adds layers of bright, bitter flavors. Despite the daunting name, this beer isn’t designed to bring about the end of the world, but it just might destroy some of your preconceived notions of what an IPA can be.

Available now for $5.99 a bottle, and again, supplies are limited!

A few new beers arrived at our North County location today!

First up, from Ruhstaller, 1881!

1881Kuch_small1

A true California Red Ale with all ingredients hailing from the Golden State. This hop-yard-specific version of our classic 1881 showcases the lively character and floral aromatics of California-grown hops followed by a clean, crisp finish.

Ruhstaller also offers Capt., a Black IPA

CAPT_small

Our California Black IPA embodies Captain Frank Ruhstaller’s legacy, boldy balancing the bright citrus aroma and profile of an IPA with a surprisingly smooth, lightly-roasted chocolate malt body.

Today we also received a fresh shipment of Oude Gueuze Tilquin – bearing the 2013 vintage. We also have a few of the 2012 vintage left, so buy both and try them side by side and see how they compare!

oude-gueuze-tilquin-75cl

Oude Gueuze Tilquin is a spontaneous fermentation beer, produced from the blending of 1, 2, and 3 year old lambics. It is unfiltered and unpasteurized, and refermented in the bottle for at least 6 months.

 

Be on the lookout tomorrow. We’re supposed to be getting the first Missouri shipment of beer from Excel Brewing, located in Breese IL. Formerly known mostly for Ski soda, an ex-Stone brewer teamed up with Excel to brew some awesome beer! We’re excited!!
