Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially announced that it is celebrating its birthday with the Special Release of Stone 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA.
Not only has Stone 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA arrived to celebrate 22 years of brewing craft beer at Stone Brewing, but it is also here as the brewery’s first anniversary beer to serve as the winner of the Stone Spotlight Series, “the annual competition that pits Stone’s brewers against one another in friendly rivalry.” Developed by “Stone Brewing Team members Jose Flores, a production brewer, and Jason Smith, who focuses on small batch brewing”, Stone 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA is a proud, “NO HAZE” Double India Pale Ale that utilizes an “arsenal of anti-haze techniques” and a recipe that showcases a “solid malt background . . . complemented with complex hop fruit flavors of cherries, apricot, melon and citrus.” This approach results in a Stone 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA that is “full bodied with a short, clean and dry finish of ample bitterness and a slight warming from its elevated [9.1%] ABV.”
Stone 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA is available now and has plans to hang around into the month of November 2018. You can find this Special Release offering available in 22 oz. bottles, 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s nationwide distribution area. Prost!
