Back in 2014, we launched the Stone Groundbreaking Collaborations campaign, offering fans the chance to preorder fourteen special beers that would be created with some of the biggest names in the craft brewing industry. In response to the outcry from fans who didn’t opt in early but now want to purchase the collaborations, we will be making a small amount of each collaboration available in 750-milliliter bottles. These 750ml bottles will be priced equal to or greater than the price you early adopters paid to receive the larger, 1.5-liter bottle.
Arrogant Brewing / Baladin "In Bocca Al Lupo" 750ml Bottles
AROMA: Sweet Belgian esters, dark fruits, caramel spice and moutian rose
PAIRINGS: Korean BBQ Ribs, Lamb Rigatoni, Braised Osso Buco, St. Marcellin cheese
Radici. Due icone si incontrano a Berlino per augurare in bocca al lupo alla craft beer revolution. Collaborateurs Teo Musso and Greg Koch share many things in common. Chief among them they began their rise to prominence in the late 1990’s with big, bold beers, and these gents are, shall we say, full of braggadocio, swagger and unrepentant joie de vivre. Also in common was the way in which, with aggressive intention, they each so cavalierly sabotaged norms that had been so irresponsibly led by the lowest common denominator purveyors of industrial beer. Thus, it’s only natural that having first met in Piozzo, Italy in 2000, the pair found themselves to be international comrades and lifelong friends in the craft beer revolution.
This beer needs to be sufficiently scaled to the personalities brewing it. Therefore, it is unquestionably full of braggadocio, swagger and unrepentant joie de vivre.
High in the Italian Alps, whence the gentian root [radice di genziana] was sourced, lie the lairs of Italian wolves (natch). Lupo and luppulo is Italian for wolf and hops, respectively. This is all the excuse that we needed.
