(ESCONDIDO, CA) – Score one…or four that is, for Stone fans. Beginning this week, Stone Brewing Co. is offering Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale, the most popular Black IPA on Beer Advocate, in packs of four 12-ounce bottles. Previously, the deep-black-yet-amazingly-hoppy beer was only available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft. Stone Ruination IPA and OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale will also be offered in four-packs.
“Stone fans have been requesting to get these beers in four-packs and we finally said, ‘Sounds good to us!'” commented Greg Koch, Stone Brewing Co. CEO and co-founder.
First brewed in 2007 as the Stone 11th Anniversary Ale, Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale perfectly melds hefty dark malts with an intense infusion of hops for a complex flavor profile of roastiness, exquisite bitterness, and big, bright hop notes.
Stone Ruination IPA got its name because of the ruinous effect on one’s palate, and recently celebrated its 10th Anniversary. This massively hopped IPA overwhelms with its deliciously intense bitterness and vibrant hop flavors layered onto an assertive malt base.
OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale is Arrogant Bastard Ale gracefully aged on toasted American oak chips to mellow the edges of this unabashedly intense brew.
The four-packs will be distributed in the following states: Alaska, Ariz., Calif., Colo., Conn., Del., Fla., Ga., Idaho, Ill., Ind., Ky., La., Mass., Md., Maine, Mich., Minn., Mo., Mont., N.C., N.H., N.J., N.M., Nev., N.Y., Ohio, Ore., Pa., R.I., S.C., Tenn., Texas, Va., Vt., and Wash.
