What Stone beers are widely available in So Cal right now?

Discussion in 'Pacific' started by Providence, Mar 18, 2013.

  1. Hey all. My friend and fellow Rhode Islander is on vacation in Southern California this week. He asked if I wanted him to bring back any brews. Over the years I have learned that we in RI get a mere sliver of what Stone has to offer. As a Stone lover, I have always wanted to get some of these other brews that don't make it my way. I figure I can send my buddy on a mission to find some "new to me" Stone brews. If you could give me a general idea of what Stone brews are the shelves at a typical bottle shop, I can then pass the names to him.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Perfect Crime doesn't make it out this way (at least I don't think it does), so perhaps I will have him grab that. The others on your list make it to either RI or Mass, many of which I have tried (and enjoyed).

    If he can get to a Stone store, they will most likely have some of the barrel aged beers for sale in bottles as well.

    Tell him to go to the Pasadena store, like the fella above stated. Dayman should be around in full amount and they do have an extensive list of older bottles of stuff like Old Guardian.
  6. stone store might have 4.20.13, but otherwise not available in SoCal or RI.

    Yea probably should have read that one a little closer

  10. Not 100%, it seems like he's all over the place. I know he's going to be in Palm Springs and out in Joshua Tree (which I am assuming is a craft desert in addition to being an environmental desert).
