2003 Old Guardian Release time is here...
take a trophy home!

Old Guardian, Stone Brewing Co.'s beautiful bold barley wine will be available in 22-ounce trophies ---uhmm, I mean bottles, starting next week. The Old Guardian has massive malt and near-critical hop notes and has received impressive honors at the 2000 Great American Beer Festival and at the 2002 and 2003 Alaskan Barley Wine Festival. This, the fifth year of release is marked by some slight tweaking to the recipe (clearly a continuing case of not knowing how to leave well enough alone – a Stone characteristic if there ever was one!)


Look for the 2003 Old Guardian starting February 3rd, 2003. Old Guardian can be cellared or enjoyed upon its release. Old Guardian fans know to do both…

Stone CEO Greg Koch accepts the award for Old Guardian Barley Wine from Tom Dalldorf, Editor/Publisher of Celebrator Beer News, at the 2003 Alaska Barley Wine Festival.
