Stone Brewing Changes Nothing About Stone Tangerine Express Hazy IPA

11 easy-drinking, refreshing — and, yes, crushable — beers of summer
San Diego’s Stone Brewing opened a brewery in Berlin in 2016 … so why not make the most authentic Berlin style of all and send it back to the United States? White Ghost is just that, a Berliner Weisse that gets its “orthodox sour and acidic character from a specially selected Lactobacillus strain sourced from local Berlin cultures,” the brewery says. I initially rolled my eyes at an American brewery importing its own beer from across the Atlantic, but guess what? It’s a lovely beer, intensely tart and featuring bold fruity notes of white peach and underripe melon.

This summer is all about tropical beers inspired by fruit and tiki cocktails
Escondido, California-based Stone Brewing’s senior manager of brewing and innovation Steve Gonzalez tells The Takeout one of the brewery’s latest IPAs, Scorpion Bowl, was actually intended to have fruit in it. It just so happened that he grabbed a drink of the beer before the fruit was added, though, and was blown away by how much fruit flavor was already there thanks to a combination of Loral and Mandarina Bavaria hops. He passed the beer around the brewery, and everyone agreed there was no need to even go forward with the fruit addition.

Your Guide to Drinking Through Memorial Day Weekend
So now you've got a cooler full of lagers. Great. You need to throw in a couple of these babies to help cleanse your palate. Stone White Geist Berliner Weisse is a refreshing and totally summer friendly beer style, but it’s also tart and a little bit fruity. You don’t want to drink nine in a row, but changing the lagers up with one of these can refresh your sensibilities and add a bit of whimsy to your drinking schedule. I say apply one White Geist for every eight lagers.

Five beers that will pair perfectly with your holiday merriment
Stone Xocoveza: On paper this seems like a weird one — a mocha stout inspired by Mexican hot chocolate and brewed with coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg — but wow does this work. It’s rich and creamy, with hints of tingly spice that tickle the back of the throat without overpowering. Drink this with a truffle or a piece of chocolate and prepare to be blown away.

San Diego’s economy is riding high on a wave of suds
Where a city like New York has a deli or pizzeria on every other corner, San Diego has a craft brewery. A few hundred miles north in Chico, Calif., at Sierra Nevada Brewing, is where craft brewing as we know it got its commercial start in 1979, but the industry has matured in this Southern California paradise. Tasting rooms with bountiful rotating drafts abound, and craft beer has joined surfing and San Diego’s zoo as one of the city’s biggest tourist attractions. But San Diego’s craft brewing industry extends well beyond tourism, generating about $1 billion of revenue for the local economy every year. Beyond the suds and the suntanned drinkers, there is a massive economic engine, almost 30 years in the making, built around beer in San Diego.
