Stone 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale Hits The Shelves Today
#1
The Stone 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale is a Strong Golden Belgian style ale highly hopped with American hops (Ahtanum, Amarillo and Simcoe). The beer pours pale golden with a thick and creamy white head of foam. The aroma is full of depth: nuances of pepper, clove, and banana from the Belgian yeast strain, and the resiny citrus notes from the American hops blend together nicely to provide a complex aromatic character. The taste is spicy, hoppy and fruity, with a very dry and a pleasant bitter end. The bitterness lingers nicely, and provides a refreshing finish that leads you to want to drink more and more of this beer!

I was wondering if anyone knows if you can find the past ones anywhere? I have a couple of 6,7,8 in the basement but have no idea on how to find 1-5.
For once I'd like to be called sir without someone adding "your making a scene".

The only way you'll be able to grab the first 5 would be to visit the brewery and maybe they could hook you up. Otherwise someone might have the first 5 and be willing to trade but I doubt it. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful but those are going to be tough to get.

Cheers,

There is no 01.01.01, 2002 was the first year. It is almost impossible to find 02.02.02 anywhere you can find 03 -05 on EBAY and in some of the better beer stores.

I heard the 04 is starting to go bad. Something in there didn't mesh.

I'm heading to Stone next weekend. I'll find out if it's available anywere

I have a few 04's in the basement maybe I will crack on and check it out. It all depends on how you store the beer, I would guess mine are OK
