Stone Brewing Co. is releasing a beer that defies all we thought we knew about consuming hoppy beers at their freshest, particularly the West Coast-style IPAs for which Stone is famous. While nearly every IPA on the planet should be drunk as fresh as possible, that is not the case with Stone Enjoy After 12.26.15 Brett IPA. Intended for aging until at least December 26, 2015, this unique IPA is inoculated with Brettanomyces (Brett), a wild yeast that will transform the beer over time in fascinatingly and deliciously unpredictable ways when stored under proper cellaring conditions. Beginning today, the Brett IPA will start arriving in 750-milliliter bottles at retail accounts in select states.
