Looking for a limited-release Stone beer ? The Stone Company Store is releasing something special that will surely make you & your growler very popular. We’ll sell through what we’ve got until it’s gone, but we urge you to keep in mind that there’s only so much beer that was produced!
This beer is the culmination of a journey begun on our Stone World Bistro & Gardens- Liberty Station 10bbl brewhouse. The twists and turns included more than one collaboration beer built on the “tropical weisse” theme. The Notorious P.O.G. was first served up at Hop-Con 4.0, our annual release event for the (in)famous Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tsttout. This beer consistently had the longest line throughout the night and was an instant hit not only with our fans, but with our own team as well. For those unfamiliar with Hawaiian juice lore, P.O.G. stands for Passion, Orange, Guava. Although it also could stand for Perfect Original Gangsta. OR, Part On Garth, Hawaiians call Passion fruit Lilikoi, but Notorious L.O.G. sounded…odd. Frankly, it doesn’t matter what the hell you call it, it’s Fresh, Tropical & Damn Tasty. Notorious FTDT just didn’t have the right rhythm though…
Appearance: Un-filtered and cloudy (looks like POG juice)
Nose: Tropical fruits, citrus, honey, very mimosa like
Taste: Nose carries over with lots of tart orange citrus. Passion fruit and guava are there, but the orange dominates
Palate: Tart and refreshing
Overall: A very refreshing tart ale with plenty of fruit character. Passion fruit and guava intermingle with an intense orange punch.
