Stone Enjoy After 12.26.15 Released. Headed to 10 States

Stone Enjoy After 12 26 15

Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA) now has two series for the IPA lover. One two drink as soon as you get it (Enjoy By IPA) and one for you two grab and hold on to for a while (Enjoy After IPA). Stone Brewing Co.’s Mitch Steele came up with recipe for Enjoy After Brett IPA.

Stone’s Mitch Steele came up with recipe the cellar ready beer.  Stone Enjoy After 12.26.15 IPA uses Belgian “Ardennes” yeast, then is dosed with Brettanomyces yeast. It’s the Brett that is key to the long term change.

This IPA is spiked at bottling with Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that, over time, brings about charmingly unpredictable complexities of spice, funk, acidity and more. The operative words in our beer-cellaring thesis are “over time.” For those of you who are impatient or like to experiment, the earliest we recommend sampling this beer is 12.26.14. The beer won’t be fully carbonated until that date. Ideally, you’ll want to cellar the beer up to—or beyond—the Enjoy After date to help it reach its full evolutionary potential. At that point, some facets of the Brett characteristics will have mellowed, while others will have become more profound; it all matures into a fascinating and delicious culmination. Individual results will vary…and that’s both the beauty and the intent behind this beer.

Stone Enjoy After 12.26.15 IPA is available in 750ml bottles. This is the second release, and up to now has been limited.

  1. Dumb Question – Will this ONLY be distributed to those 10 states listed, or will larger distribution eventually follow? Thanks

    • Not a dumb question. This is just the second run of the beer, and it’s distribution is much larger than it’s ever been.

      If it’s anything like the Enjoy By offerings, each release will see new states in Stone’s network or larger distribution each time…

      Time will tell…
