Stone Vertical Epic Ale Sipping Session
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PST)
STONE VERTICAL EPIC ALE SIPPING SESSION
Beginning in the year 2002, Stone began an ambitious project: The Stone Vertical Epic Ale portfolio. The concept was to create a unique beer each year and release it "one year-one month-one day" from the previous year. Collectors quickly scooped up the beers and tucked them deep in cellars, waiting patiently until the final bottle in the collection was released to prepare an epic tasting.
Each Stone Vertical Epic Ale was boldly brewed to be aged-bottle conditioned, thank you-and each year is a different recipe. Stone 12/12/12 Vertical Epic Ale is the final piece in this splendid collection.
We are incredibly fortunate to have access to an almost complete collection of these beers, with the added bonus of barrel aged offerings. If your cellar is lacking, you can join other enthusiasts for a session of sipping and swooning.
