(Escondido, CA) – For months we’ve been re-releasing some of our favorite beers of years past in our Stone 20th Anniversary Encore Series. This week, fans will begin to find Stone 02.02.02 Vertical Epic Ale on draft and on shelves. It was the first of our Vertical Epic Ale series. An imperial Belgian-style wit infused with orange peel, black pepper and a healthy dose of Centennial hops, only 300 cases were produced back in 2002, making this beer a real hard find…until now. This video shares more details straight from Greg Koch, our Executive Chairman & co-founder.
Our Stone Anniversary IPA Collection four-pack will begin arriving on store shelves in select markets nationwide this week. Fans who may have missed them the first time around now have the opportunity to try these three beers über fresh and alongside the brand-new Stone 20th Anniversary Citracado IPA:
- Stone 5th Anniversary IPA
- Stone 10th Anniversary IPA
- Stone 15th Anniversary Escondidian Imperial Black IPA
“Our 5th, 10th and 15th anniversaries were significant achievements for Stone Brewing, and each year was celebrated with a bold, flavorful IPA that was groundbreaking for that time,” said Koch. “Fans will be able to relive a bit of Stone history with some of our most beloved Stone Anniversary Ales, featured only in the Stone Anniversary IPA Collection. This is the first time we’ve rebrewed these IPAs since their debut. We’re thrilled to provide this very unique opportunity for our fans to relive the past with us. It’s the perfect way to reminisce!”
