Mid-week blues can be combatted with well-cared-for Stone beer! Every Tuesday we’ll tap a keg (or kegs) of a unique Stone brew outside of our year-round lineup. Expect vintage variations of some of our favorite brews like Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine, Stone Imperial Russian Stout, or one of our other rare, special creations. We urge you to keep in mind that supplies of these highly sought-after beers are often very limited!
20th Anniversary Encore Series: Stone 12th Anniversary Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
Who knew a worldwide hop shortage in 2008 would give rise to such a memorable, delicious beer? When it came time to craft a commemorative offering for our 12th anniversary, we decided to trade in the bitterness of hops for the bitterness of unsweetened chocolate, and paired that with flaked oats. Featuring a thick, rich, roasty mouthfeel and chocolate-heavy flavors and aromas, this onyx-colored, malt-forward beauty became an instant classic that shares space on our liquid trophy case alongside our hop-focused fan favorites.
