stonebrewingco This week’s double Brewer’s #Casks from Dante Tomei are vastly different THURSDAY: Stone Smoked Porter w/Rice Milk, Lactose, Vanilla & Cinnamon; FRIDAY: Stone Smoked Porter w/Hibiscus, Wildflower Honey & Kaffir Lime Leaf 23h
  •   jeebunonymous @pars3c we need them 17h
  •   vaultboy79 @jiujitsumanbryan ... Smh. Go drink a PBR then. 16h
  •   vaultboy79 Maybe the guys at stone thought xata was good and figured they'd give it a whirl. How bland beer would be if people didn't try to make a better beer then the last guy. 16h
  •   joe__snow @jiujitsumanbryan you're super offended for no reason at all. Lots of brewery's have played with this idea, heck I was just at cigar city a few weeks ago and they had an horchata beer on nitro. And it's a freaking cask, not like they're even bottling the stuff. But, some people are miserable and aren't happy unless they're complaining or crying about something- I hope you feel better, and I'm sorry you'll miss out on this dope Beer. 15h
  •   jjmartin72 I want to learn how to brew great IPA!!! 13h
  •   craftbrewandcupcakes @bombshellbrewnuttes they both sound AMAZING! The first one almost sounds like horchata... yummm!!!!! 11h
  •   vikingmike70 Good lord that was delicious! 10h
  •   roebobear @stonebrewingco where!?!? 9h

stonebrewingco It's like having three over-achieving offspring. We can't pick a favorite from hoppy siblings Stone ‪#‎RuinTen IPA, Stone ‪#‎EnjoyBy 08.06.14 IPA and Beachwood/Heretic/Stone ‪#‎Unapologetic IPA. Which one do you hop-heads find yourself favoring? 2d

stonebrewingco You owe it to the people who lovingly crafted your ‪#‎beer—and yourself—not to just funnel it down your gullet, says Stone's Haley Jones as she walks Stone fans through ‪#‎craftbeer appreciation and sensory evaluation basics. BLOG: http://bit.ly/sensoryeval101 3d

stonebrewingco Did any #craftbeer fans crack the code on the back of Stone @stchprjct Quadrotriticale. HINT: We CAPITALIZED on brewmaster Mitch Steele's love of Star Trek and quadrotriticale's part in a very popular episode. http://www.stochasticity/quadrotriticale 1w

stonebrewingco Unlike most things, experimenting is recommended when it comes to hops! Get experimental with this week’s Brewer’s ‪#‎Cask at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - #Escondido, Stone IPA w/Segal Ranch Experimental Hop Variety 7272 & Moroccan Orange Peel from Small Batch Manager Steve Gonzalez. Can’t make it? We’re tapping it Friday, too! 1w

stonebrewingco Though #craftbeer fans have come to count on its annual April release, STONE IMPERIAL RUSSIAN STOUT was actually born on this day in July of 2000. Fourteen years later, though nearly devoid of hops, it remains one of our most intense beers for its rich, chocolaty flavor with nuances of juniper, tobacco, licorice and spice. Happy birthday to a rare beer that’s as good new as it is cellared for years! 1w

stonebrewingco It's the West Coast's most expansive annual celebration of sour beers, STONE #SOURFEST 2014. Nearly 800 thirsty craft fans lined up to pucker up over Flemish reds, gueuzes, lambics and more at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - #Escondido. Along the way, we asked them to break away from their tangy libations to mug for our cameras. Check out these happy people and, if you were among them, share some of your pics from the event using the hashtag #SOURFEST 2w
  •   tastyville Cheese has bacteria in it. Yogurt does too. What are mushrooms on your pizza? Pediococcus that is used in beer is also used to make saurkraut. Brettanomyces bruxellensis was first isolated by an Englishman (hence Brettano) on a visit to Brussels (Bruxelles in French) to investigate the contamination of wines. Sour beer isn't a trend, it's arguably the first kind of alcoholic drink humans enjoyed when they stopped being hunter gatherers and cultivated grains and enjoyed water with grains steeped in it for flavor. The rich history of beer making and drinking begins with sours. 1w
  •   tastyville And to proselytize that beer shouldn't be sour because it's contaminated is purely nonsense. That these grains steeped in water became contaminated is a fluke like most of evolution. Did you know prehistoric almonds had deadly doses of cyanide in them? They were daring (or stupid) early people that happened to try almonds that were mutated without the cyanide. Things happen by accident through history and beer came into existence much in the same way. 1w
  •   jaimelpagen Dammit why didn't we go? @jeffdye3 1w
  •   yubnub3 @tastyville Too many contradictions and inaccuracies enumerate and address. I have hijacked this post too much already with an unpopular opinion. Out of respect for Stone and sour beer fans I will drop this argument. 1w
  •   ryanthelion76 Will you guys have more sour beer tastings? Or can anyone here tell me where I can find sour beers? San Diego native. 1w
  •   stonebrewingco @yubnub3 You are entitled to your opinions and we really appreciate the civility and you being a fan of our work. At least you really like 99.9% of the beers we produce! 1w

stonebrewingco We make some legit merch and it's always cool to see fans wearing our gear out and about, but there's something extra special when we see members of the US Military taking liberties with our artwork to represent those who fight for OUR liberties! 2w
