This time it’s not an IPA. Stone Tropic of Thunder Lager debuts nationally

Stone Tropic of Thunder Lager

From one of the most popular purveyors of hops comes something a little different this month – a lager. Stone Tropic of Thunder Lager ships nationally this week.

Citra and Mosaic and rising star Cashmere are the hop stars of this craft lager, which boasts flavors of pineapple, citrus and coconut. In their descriptions, Stone wants you to think of this lager as a desert island beer.

Mainstays Citra & Mosaic along with newcomer Cashmere hops are joined by their juicy tropical aromas of citrus, pineapple and coconut (try stringing all that together in a catchy tune). The rescue ship will find you all soon enough. For now, set aside the non-working cell phone and lack of social media (again, work with us here), kick back and revel in your moment of tropical island lagoon serenity.

 

Stone Tropic of Thunder Lager is available in 12-ounce cans and draft nationally starting in January 2019.

Style: Lager
Hops: Citra, Mosaic, Cashmere
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut (Nationally): January 2019

One of the best donut inspired beers, Burial Skillet Donut Stout returns

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans return as 2018 comes to a close. 

Burial Skillet Donut Stout is an oatmeal stout and is brewed with molasses, milk sugar, and a 50/50 blend of Big Trouble and Hologram Counter Culture Coffee. This fan favorite is big on coffee with just a tiny hint of milk chocolate, finishing silky smooth. Breakfast beer? Dessert beer? That’s up to you. We’ve turned it into a pool beer when it comes back in the summer time.

Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. Never biased, it welcomes all ingredients. The Skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity. It is the perfect barrier-carrier for this rich, black ale. This breakfast stout is made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich cocoa, smooth caramel, dark fruits, and an abundance of diverse coffee aroma unlike no other. Drink your breakfast.

Burial Skillet Donut Stout 16-ounce cans and draft will return to the taproom and distribution the last week of 2018.
