Stone To Bottle Smoked Porter With Vanilla Bean

Stone Brewing Co will be bottling Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean for the first time ever.  The beer has been draft only, “from time to time” offering.

In 2006, almost exactly ten years after we released Stone Smoked Porter (our second beer ever to be unleashed upon the public), Stone brewer Laura Ulrich had a stroke of brilliance…what if she introduced whole Madagascar vanilla beans into a small batch? And voila, Stone Smoked Porter w/ Vanilla Beans was born! It was an instant hit, as the resulting flavor combinations were practically made for each other Natural vanilla beans melded perfectly with the chocolatey, malty, coffee-like characteristics of the beer, making it almost like a liquid dessert, but without an overbearing sweetness (add a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and it off the hook’). And while Greg sticks by his preference for the aggressiveness of the chipotle version” the vanilla bean version is the dear fan favorite. As for our other Stone co-founder Steve? “Me? I love ’em both!” Ever the diplomat No matter your preference, they’re now both available for your sensory pleasure in a limited special 12oz bottling. Will either come back? Both? Depends on you! Voice your thoughts…
