Stone Brewing Co. Launch Party on Thursday, August 29th
We are sure that you all know the good news by now that Stone Brewing Co. is bringing their world-class brews to Alabama at the end of the month. Even better news is that we get to extend a warm, J. Clyde welcome to the Stone team with a launch party on Thursday, August 29th at 7 p.m.!
Stone Brewing Co. really is a brewery that needs no introduction, but here’s a short overview in case you happen to be unfamiliar with them. Stone Brewing, founded by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner, has been brewing beer in North County San Diego since 1996. Since then, Stone has established itself as the 10th largest craft brewer in the United States by brewing bold, flavorful and largely hop-centric beers that have won countless awards at competitions all over the world. Thanks to wildly popular offerings like Arrogant Bastard Ale and Stone Ruination IPA, Stone Brewing is easily one of the most recognizable breweries in America.
For this incredibly exciting launch party, we will be pouring the following 11 (!) Stone Brewing offerings on draught:
- Arrogant Bastard Ale
- Double Bastard Ale, 2012 Vintage**
- Oaked Arrogant Bastard
- Stone Cali-Belgique IPA
- Stone IPA
- Stone Levitation Ale
- Stone Old Guardian OAK-SMOKED Barley Wine w/American & French Oak, 2013 Vintage**
- Stone Pale Ale
- Stone Ruination IPA
- Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA**
- Stone Smoked Porter
- Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale

We’re not sayin’ nothin’ about nothin’, but the folks at Stone have also been hinting around about a couple casks that might end up at the pub for this event as well. It’s time to start getting excited!
While you work your way through the Stone smorgasbord pouring at the bar, you will have the chance to hang out and discuss the beer in your hand with brewery representatives. There is no skimping in this department either because the brewery is sending the following all-star lineup of Stone crew members for this event: Director of National Sales Jason Armstrong; Eastern Regional Manager Michael Saklad; Southeast Regional Brewery Representative Brett Collier; Washington, D.C./Maryland/Virginia Regional Brewery Representative Melanie Knepp and brewer Brian Gallagher. This launch party is going to be overflowing with both top notch beer and beer knowledge.
This is going to be one hell of a good time, and we hope all of our friends and patrons stop by to give Stone Brewing Co. a proper dose of Southern hospitality on August 29th. Let’s pack this pub and show the Stone crew how the Birmingham craft beer crowd gets down! We’ll see you all then!
