So I bought a few of these collaborations back when they did the indiegogo campaign in 2014 and got an email this week that one is available for pickup. When I made the purchase, it was billed as a Lost Abbey collaboration that would be brewed by Stone, Tomme Arthur and a "brewer from a famous, long-standing Belgian brewery." I was hoping for a sour or maybe a Belgian quad. Then the email that came this week says the beer -- Sticks N' Stones -- was brewed by Tomme Arthur, Steve Wagner and Lee Chase. I have nothing but respect for Lee Chase, but this isn't what I expected or hoped for. Then there's the beer itself. The email didn't say what style it is, just that it was aged on oak chips (the sticks) and granite (the stones). I go to the Stone website and there are two descriptions of the beer inches apart, and they're different. One says dark imperial lager with German yeast, and the other says black Belgian style double IPA. Which is it? And if they built a brewery in Germany so they could serve fresh IPAs to Europe, why brew an IPA there and ship it back to America? Nevermind the wtf of aging a beer on granite. I emailed Stone about this and got an automated response saying I'd get a reply within 24 hours. That was a couple days ago and I haven't received a reply. Anyone else know anything about this? Or try it? Also, I see that another one of these "groundbreaking collaborations" was already released. Any feedback on how it turned out?
