Notes / Commercial Description:
This is the third release in our 2012 Provisions Series Local Collaborations Series. We've teamed up with our great friends at TAPS Brewery out of Brea for this beer and we made one of our most complicated beers to date. An amalgamation of a barley wine with a traditional stein beer, this strong, brown ale has an extra level of caramel complexity brought on by our use of granite rocks that were heated to 900º and added to the wort along with a generous addition of date sugar for added gravity. A Stein's Throw is rich with fruity esters and toffee richness, but finishes dry after being fermented with proprietary yeast strains from both The Bruery and TAPS.

The pour is a murky amber color with a tan head. Caramel malt, toffee, light mineral quality, fruity, and grainy. There’s a bit of an unfermented malt aroma to this, too. A touch of grape fruitiness on the back end and mate some cherry. The flavor is a touch sugary and sweet. Toffee, mild caramel, bread, and toast. Light hop character, mineral and ferrous notes, and a hint of sweet fruit. Sort of a strange aroma and flavor profile, wasn’t a huge fan.
