Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of its “cult-favorite” Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse in late May/early June 2020.

First brewed in 2016 as a collaboration with actor and comedian Jonah Ray with the intention of capturing his childhood memories of drinking POG Juice in Hawaii, Stone Notorious P.O.G. is a Berliner Weisse loaded down with “countless passion fruits, oranges and guavas.” Coming in at just 4.7% ABV and 20 IBUs, the “tart, refreshing, citrusy and spectacular” Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse “effortlessly rides its effervescence of tart orange citrus and tropicality with sip-it-like-its-Sunday ease.”

“This beer is dedicated to my homeland, the islands of Hawaii,” explained Jonah Ray. “It’s also dedicated to my dad who used to pour a little bit of booze into his PASSION ORANGE GUAVA juice on the weekends. LOOK DAD! I’VE COMBINED THE TWO!”

Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse is rolling into distribution now and will be hanging around as long as supplies last this summer. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 22 oz. bottles, 19.2 oz. cans and in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s nationwide distribution network.

Stone Brewing Goes Nationwide with Latest Release of Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse

NotoriousPOG_12ozCanStone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially announced that its fan-favorite Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse will return for a nationwide Limited Release during the week of July 8, 2019.

Originally brewed in 2016 at the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station as a collaboration beer with actor, comedian and native Hawaiian Jonah Ray, Stone Notorious P.O.G. is a Berliner Weisse-style Ale that is meant to capture Ray’s childhood memories of POG Juice – a juice blend consisting of (P)assion Fruit, (O)range and (G)uava. Brewed with those same fruits, Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse (4.7% ABV) “effortlessly rides its effervescence of tart orange citrus and tropicality with sip-it-like-its-Sunday ease. It’s tart, refreshing, citrusy and spectacular.”

“I love my hops in beer, but I also appreciate brewing and enjoying a wide range of beer styles,” said Kris Ketcham, Stone Brewing Senior Manager of Brewing & Innovation who collaborated alongside Jonah Ray on the first brew. “Clearly our fans also appreciate the exploration of other styles, beers that rise to other occasions, and the occasional beer that wows us at the most unexpected time. We originally set out to brew a POG IPA but I’d been exploring with the Berliner Weisse style and knew it would highlight those fruit flavors best. I never would have imagined the following this beer has created, and I’m continually impressed by our fans’ appreciation for a beer that’s balanced, flavorful and intriguing – no matter the style.”

Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse is scheduled to officially release during the week of July 8 and will hang around as long as supplies last.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 19.2 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 area.  Prost!
