Sawyer's Triple
Sawyer's Triple

Inspiration comes from many sources. The inspiration for Sawyer's Triple came from namesake Sawyer Benjamin Sherwood, the 8 year-old son of Stone brewer Bill Sherwood and his wife Janis. Over a period of four years, we had the distinct pleasure of getting to know Sawyer via his visits to the brewery or at the occasional backyard BBQ. An engaging and athletic kid if you ever knew one! In early 2003 Sawyer was diagnosed with Adrenoleukodystrophy — also known as ALD — a rare neuro-degenerative disease. At the time of the original creation of this beer and writing of this label in August 2003, Sawyer was in a fight for his life.

It felt like a crushing blow when we lost Sawyer in September 2003, only days before the initial release of Sawyer's Triple. The outpouring of support from family, the community, and fans of Stone Brewing brought comfort and solace to such a great degree that it simply cannot be expressed in words. When you enjoy this brew, we encourage you to lift a glass to the noble fight in all of us. When your own fight is overwhelming, remember to seek help. And when you are able to, offer help to others. On Sawyer's behalf, and for all who need assistance with their own fight, we thank you for yours...
