Remember Stone Brewing Co’s Kona Coffee, Macadamia, Coconut Porter? It started as homebrewer Ken Schmidt’s winning entry in the American Homebrewer’s Association Membership Rally (brew off) in California. His brew- Aloha Plenty was based off of the Coconut Porter from Maui Brewing. Stone brought in Maui and Ken to brew the collaboration.
Fast forward to the most recent AHA Rally. Guess who won again? Ken Schmidt. The above is a picture of the hawaiian shirt laden homebrewer, as he brews Stone Mint Chocolate Stout with Iron Fist Brewing.
To be released soon.
