Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially announced that it will begin the Special Release of Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches on October 18, 2021.
Inspired by Steve Gonzalez’s, Stone Brewer, “Grandmother’s Tres Leches family recipe,” Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches is an Imperial Stout that begins with all the goodness you expect from Xocoveza‘s “spices, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla; however, this year it’s taken to a new level (hard to believe you could take this beer to another level!) with more lactose and the addition of flaked rice and oats resulting in a very smooth, creamy, and decadent experience.” Coming in at 8.5% ABV, Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches is “incredible on its own but is also very food friendly and begs to be paired with an array of desserts and other flavorful sensations.”
“I fell in love with Stone Xocoveza the first time I tried it many years ago,” said Stone co-founder Greg Koch. “I, like so many, look forward to the release each year. As much as I was hesitant to mess with such a hallowed beer, I do believe that this new recipe is my very favorite version we’ve ever produced, and I will be squirreling away more than my fair share to enjoy throughout the next year plus. Fair? Perhaps not. Too bad!” laughed Koch with a mischievous Grinch like grin.
Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches is rolling out now and will hang around as long as supplies last during the 2021 Holiday Season. You can expect to find this Special Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
