Stone Old Guardian Extra Hoppy Ships

Stone Old Guardian Extra Hoppy

2015 is an “odd year.” Fans of Stone Brewing Co. know by now that odd years bring “Odd Years” versions of Stone Imperial Russian Stout and Old Guardian Barleywine.

Past Odd Beer versions of Old Guardian have included Oak Smoked, and Belgo-Barleywine. 2015’s Odd offering is Extra Hoppy. The Stone Brewing Co. team used Azacca hop varietal in a strong dry-hop in the base barleywine.

[The Azacca dry-hop]…gives the beer a big candied-fruit character and citrus, pineapple aromatics.

    • I agree. Like any industry there is quite a bit of bullshit from time to time but for the most part it is fast-paced and there is still quite a bit camaraderie.
