20th Anniversary Encore Series: Stone 02.02.02 Vertical Epic Ale

Event Overview

Mid-week blues can be combatted with well-cared-for Stone beer! Every Tuesday we’ll tap a keg (or kegs) of a unique Stone brew outside of our year-round lineup.  Expect vintage variations of some of our favorite brews like Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine, Stone Imperial Russian Stout, or one of our other rare, special creations. We urge you to keep in mind that supplies of these highly sought-after beers are often very limited!

20th Anniversary Encore Series: Stone 02.02.02 Vertical Epic Ale

ABV: 7.5%

In 2002 we began our groundbreaking, millennium-inspired series with Stone 02.02.02 Vertical Epic Ale. This bumped-up Belgian-style wit—made all the more alluring thanks to an infusion of orange peel, coriander, a sprinkling of black pepper and a healthy dose of Centennial hops—was a bright way to begin this unprecedented eleven-part vertical tasting. Being that it was the first in a sequentially released series of beers (originally designed to be enjoyed together ten years into the future), and that only 300 cases were produced, this became quite easily the rarest and most highly sought-after beer we have ever brewed. However, nothing this coveted should be relegated to such a fate. Back for an encore, now all of those who missed out the first time can taste what was the start of something truly epic.In 2002 we began our groundbreaking, millennium-inspired series with Stone 02.02.02 Vertical Epic Ale.
