Stone Stochasticity Your Father Smelt of Elderberries Released
Stone Stochasticity Your Father Smelt of Elderberries joins the brewery’s experimental project series this month. Each release sets free the brewers of Stone, to brew outside their “normal” and create with unusual ingredients, or just make a golden stout.
Stone Stochasticity Your Father Smelt of Elderberries calls upon the old English use of elderberries in the brewing process. The base beer looks to be an amber ale with a touch of smoke from the peated oats, and English hops.
Besides being one of the cool kids for reading Beer Street Journal, you are even cooler if you recognize all the Monty Python puns below.
Stochasticity Project beers bravely explore lesser-trod territory. Imagine if you will emerging from the furthest depths of the dark, misty forest of time holding a chalice (perhaps one of catholically divine caliber) filled with an ale style dating back to medieval England. We find ourselves carried by the gait of hooves (which oddly sound like someone is clacking together two empty coconut halves) and happen upon a caste siege. Insults are being hurled from the walls above from …Frenchmen? Time to run away (after one last whack at the mighty stone castle walls with a broadsword) to discuss strategy just beyond the reach of catapulted bovines. Beer brewed with elderberries is freely shared. What strategies come from this? Trojan Rabbit! A brilliant ruse they’re sure to…catapult. Word to the wise, Sir Bedivere. Don’t strategize whilst drinking elderberry beer or the constables may show up at the end of your flick.
Stone Stochasticity Your Father Smelt of Elderberries is a draft and 22 ounce bottle offering.
Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time.
