Stone introduces summer brews
Stone Brewing is introducing two unique and highly anticipated summer seasonals. Both in 12-ounce six-packs and on draft at bars, restaurants and retailers where Stone beer is sold, Stone Citrusy Wit, a 5.3 percent witbier brewed with tangerine and kaffir lime leaf and Stone Mocha IPA, a 9 percent double IPA brewed – inexplicably – with cocoa, milk sugar and coffee, began arriving in select markets nationwide the week of June 6.
Regarding the Stone Citrusy Wit, “This is the first time we’ve released a Belgian style witbier for our fans nationwide, said Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele. “We set out to create something very flavorful and refreshing for the summer months, set on creating a more innovative wit. First, we played around with tangerine and then the team landed on kaffir lime leaf to help punch it up even more with an intense citrus fruit flavor, all complemented by the beer’s subtle coriander spice character.
Enjoy Stone Citrusy Wit fresh during the summer months or store it at proper cellaring temperatures (55°F or lower) for up to one year after its “bottled on” date. Stone Citrusy Wit will be available through September.
The Stone Mocha IPA blurs the lines between an IPA and a stout. Technically an all-out double IPA, this decadent creation is brewed with the combination of golden roasted coffee, pure dark chocolate and citrusy hops. The result is a love child of a beer characterized by a beautiful meld of imperial IPA and mocha indulgence.
“This double IPA pours deep gold but has the deceivingly rich flavors of a stout.” said Steele. “I’ve had countless amazing coffee IPAs and chocolate IPAs but this mocha blend really balances the bold hop qualities created by Cascade, Citra and Amarillo with rich cocoa and prevalent coffee traits.”
Stone Mocha IPA will be available through September and should be enjoyed within the 120-day “enjoy by” date printed on the bottle’s shoulder.
