(Escondido, CA) – Stone Brewing will release its next beers in the Quingenti Millilitre Series in just two weeks.
As previously noted, Stone has tied the opportunity to buy these beers to purchases of its new book. Today, Stone sent out a notice for a book signing at the brewery on September 27th.
“Buying the book is also your ticket to buying our newest Quingenti Millilitre releases! Yes, buying the book is the ONLY way to get our hands on these beers.”
One ticket for each book. There is no limit. Buy 1,000 books and get 1,000 tickets. Each ticket gets you the opportunity to buy a 500ml bottle of one of the following beers (costs $25 + tax + CRV):
2010 Old Guardian Barley Wine Aged in Bourbon Barrels
2010 Old Guardian BELGO Barley Wine Aged in Bourbon Barrels
2010 Old Guardian BELGO Barley Wine Aged in Wine Barrels
A purchase of the book at the book signing will also get you the opportunity to purchase a sample of 2010 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine Aged in Bourbon Barrels (around 4 oz.). This allows you to taste the beer now and decide whether you want to age it later. Those attending the GABF and buying the book there will have the same opportunity to sample the beer.
From what I was told by Stone HQ, the brewery is going to take its sweet time in selling these bottles to those who buy books so there is no reason to think that, by waiting, you will have an opportunity to purchase the beer without the book.
