On this anniversary, everybody must get Stone

It’s been 18 years since Greg Koch and company started a beer revolution in southern California. The founder of Stone Brewing Company in San Diego, states on the company’s website that he and his compatriots are “hoisting our banner to proclaim artisanal beers’ vast superiority over stripped-down, business-driven, industrialized, fizzy, yellow mediocrity.” For its 18th Anniversary, Stone has brewed Stone 18th Anniversary Ale. The beer, an imperial India pale ale is brewed with El Dorado hops for a lemony, tropical-fruit freshness and a small amount of English Brown Coffee Malt for balance. But get it quick, it’s not here for long.
