Stone Brewing Co. is well known for making out-of-the-box beers. Apparently, only a few people are worthy of appreciating their greatness. I had a pre-release taste of their Lukcy Basartd Ale at the Beer Blogger's conference in November, and loved it. Does that make me worthy?!?
Anyway, I'm going to make up for lost time by sampling five brews from their regular year-round lineup. So during the next few weeks, I will be sampling and writing about:
Stone has some exciting releases on the horizon. On February 14th, they will release two versions of their Old Guardian Barley Wine—the original and a BELGO version (which adds a Belgian yeast strain). Stone had planned to release just the BELGO as part of their "Odd Beers for Odd Years" program. However, mass hysteria ensued, and they quickly decided to release both versions. If I can, I'll try to track down and review both versions.
