Stone Finds An Infection Issue In Rare Beer

Even well established breweries have some infection issues sometimes. Stone Brewing Co discovered yesterday that bottles of their 2010 Russian Imperial Russian Stout aged in bourbon barrels has some infection issues. The stout has spent two years resting in bourbon barrels before making it’s way into the world.   Randy Clemens, Media & Communications for Stone mentioned this on Beer Advocate:

Yeah, this is a major bummer to hear. We’re looking into the half-fills and the reports of infected bottles as we speak, and we’ll have much better information (as well as a solution to make it right!) after our meeting tomorrow. If you can’t wait that long, you’re welcome to bring your bottle(s) back–filled, empty, or anywhere in between–for a full refund, no questions asked. More details to come; thanks all for your patience, understanding, loyalty, and hopefully forgiveness.

This special edition is part of Stone’s Quingenti Millilitre series. I guess there are some sad beer geeks out there right now.
