Saturday, September 8th
The Stone 11th Anniversary Celebration was a great success! The Stone Crew, the Volunteers, the Guest Breweries and all you Beer Drinking Humanitarians helped crank this anniversary up to 11! To the right is a list of some businesses, organizations and people that need to be recognized for their generosity in lending their time, services and resources to make this event the best one yet. We couldn’t have pulled it off without them, so be sure to raise a toast to them.

one of your favorite things to do -- enjoy great beer with friends -- on
behalf of the fest-goers and the charities!
