To our Berlin Groundbreaking Collaboration supporters –
After recently resampling a number of bottles of our Stone Berlin Groundbreaking Collaboration Aleman / Two Brothers / Stone “Champion of the Sun,” we have found some of them to not be up to our standards. When we bottled them at Stone Brewing - Berlin they were out of this world, and some of them still are. Unfortunately, it seems that others did not age as we expected. Somewhere in their journey across the Atlantic, they lost the character we’d intended. Our belief is that perhaps all of the 1.5L bottles are not up to snuff, and some of the 750ml bottles are also affected.
I’ve explained this alongside our CEO Dominic Engels in this video.
We brewed only one batch of this beer, so unfortunately we can't send you a direct replacement.
However, it's our goal to make good and do right by you guys, so to do that we’ll be providing you TWO 750ml bottles of any available Stone Groundbreaking Collaboration beer in place of the 1.5L Stone Berlin Groundbreaking Collaboration Aleman / Two Brothers / Stone “Champion of the Sun.” Please see the video for details.
We know you’ve waited a long time to see these Stone Berlin Groundbreaking Collaborations come to fruition. It has been no small feat, and we’re indebted to you for your patience.
By the way, this month marks Stone Berlin’s 1st Anniversary, with distribution of über fresh American-style craft beer now to 26 European countries. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our fans like you! Thank you for your understanding and for your loyalty to Stone. Let us know if you have any questions. Your total 110% happiness is our goal!
