off, we are amazed that it's already October. What happened, and mother
nature has surely shown us that Fall is headed our way. Well enough about
that, soon it will be December, and we will all wondering where October and
have a few events lined up in the upcoming weeks and months:
follows is a brief description:
This was such a fun
collaboration. Megan first brought forth the idea of an imperial porter, which
we all immediately agreed to, and Tonya
provided the malt bill. From there, we decided to add some ingredients from
Southern California. The avocado honey provided a very rich, intensely floral
flavor. The addition of the honey and jasmine reminds me of Southern California
summers, while the calendula flowers hail from Stone Farms and bring a nice floral
note and hint of bitterness. I’m very pleased at how well these flavors came
through in the finished beer.
only will we be releasing Suede, we will have some other beers available from
Stone and 10 Barrel, here are the other beers we will be pouring:
Reason Be Damned Belgian Style Abbey Ale aged in Red Wine Barrels
Double Bastard Ale with Dark Toasted Oak
Barrel OG Wheat Ipa (Firkin)
Barrel Pray for Snow
10th we will be tapping Stone Vertical Epic 10/10/10:
ninth edition of our Stone Vertical Epic Ale series takes two interesting left
turns. A Belgian-style golden triple is the starting point of this beer, but
the first left turn is nearly immediate with the addition of dried chamomile
flowers, triticale, and Belgian amber candi sugar. The second, and rather
unusual left turn takes us half an hour up the road from Stone to Temecula
courtesy of the addition of just-pressed Muscat, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon
Blanc grapes from our friends at South Coast Winery. As the Stone Vertical Epic
Ale series has moved through the calendar, we found that the brewing schedule
for a 10.10.10 release coincided nicely with the grape harvest, neatly
providing an interesting twist in this epic ale.
will be closed on Saturday, October 19th for a private event. Please plan
October 21st we will be hosting a Pelcian Brewing event.
More information will be available when the details are finalized.
Big Wood our celebration of
all things wood aged from Stout to Sour starts Thursday, December 5th and runs
through the weekend. We have some great beers hidden away in the cooler,
this is a not to be missed event.
