(Escondido, CA) – Changes are coming to two of Stone Brewing‘s special releases.
The feedback on the move is weighted towards the positive on Facebook and weighted towards the negative on Beer Advocate. Because the reaction is so mixed, I’ve created a poll on the right to see what you readers want them to do.
From yesterday’s brewery blog post:
Starting in 2011, we’re kicking-off a program we’ve dubbed “Odd Beers for Odd Years.” Translation: in odd numbered years (2011, 2013, 2015, etc…) we’ll be releasing new variations on Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine and Stone Imperial Russian Stout in place of the classic version. A radical redirection for two reliably wonderful beers, we know, but we think you’ll be pleased with the results.
Hell, we are.
The first Odd Beer for Odd Years release will be rocking your collective world in the form of Stone Old Guardian Belgo Barley Wine, which hits shelves in February.
The brewery will introduce Stone Belgo Imperial Russian Stout in April.
