Interesting. Hope they can pull this through. With how quickly some of their beers hit our shelves in the Midwest, I'm rooting for them. I also like that they stand behind their beer. Offering some hot sauce options gets you points with me as well.
Stone landed in Arkansas this week!
They're going to try to get back into Wisconsin??
When they actually populate OK, they will drive 20% of the crap off the shelf into shite town, minimum
Fingers crossed....please.come back to WI
For the sake of all that is holy come back to WI! what did we ever do to make you leave us?! I'm sick of having to go to IL to drink stone. I've never even had a single one of your beers on tap!!!!!!
Now everyone can enjoy the Stone...Nice
They came into my town grocery stores like 6 months ago - I was getting Ruination 2.0 bombers at publix!!
Now just back to pretty much my bottle shop only..
Please come back!!
Sooooo, when will Stone be big enough for us to start hating on them?
How about before they go into every state they distribute all over the states they are already in. Having to drive three hours to get some delicious Stone beer is a bit of a trek.
Where you been man? That happened, like, you know, years ago and stuff. We've sucked ever since we released our second album and got a new drummer, everyone knows that.
I love your beer. Don't know where I've been honestly. Guess I missed the press release.
Nice, they should also count the states in Mexico they have their beer too.
This makes me incredibly happy, and I find myself grinning at my desk.
I bet Wyoming will be last cuz I'm an arrogant bastard. lol!
Wait so no more Vanilla Smoked Porter or Chili Smoked Porter.
Did it list what states are left? According to Seekabrew (which may not be totally acurate), the only 3 states left are Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and West Virginia.
No they didn't. Wyoming would be another...
Looks like I was reading the map wrong. I think UT, SD, ND, and MS also.
US down next up rest of world.
Utah? lol ok Im fine with that.
I didn't read the first post with full disclosure.
I bought 3 cases of Xocoveza this last December, about a cases worth of Enjoy bys, and about 3 Stone RISs bombers over the past 2 years.
Good luck. Growth may happen initially but overall, their normal IPA and such are just so very average. I don't see growth happening for too long, especially with local breweries really stepping it up. A regular Stone IPA, or their ruination, or their session IPA has almost never happened with me over a course of 5 years. I truly love what Xoco is all about. But be weary of the other stuff. Stone IPA, served at a local casino was near trash, compared to a similarly priced IPA (age on IPA a huge variable. FYI, it was up near Santa Fe, NM. Local reigned supreme on so many levels). I suspect Stone IPA was a touch (or mouths) old. Having it priced a good 50 cents a $1 more than local, the local stuff really has an advantage, specially if its inherently better.
This is good news for when I'm traveling, and need a decent brew from a less than decent store. Fingers crossed!
Well, being that Wisconsin is one of the 50 U.S. states last time I checked I'm gonna go with yes!
I have no problem getting Stone in VA., but I think that it is awesome that they will be available in all 50 states for those that don't normally get distribution...
Hmmm I was told that Stone had NO desire to get into Wyoming.......(by email)
Respectfully disagree. I picked up a six pack of Stone IPA last Friday because 1) I haven't had it in 9 months or more and 2) the bottled on date was 3/11 (only 2 weeks old). I enjoyed one last night. It's a wonderfully crafted beer and, when fresh, there is nothing average about it. I understand why some might consider it average - It's getting overlooked during this IPA haze craze hype train, or because it lacks the addition of "natural flavors". And I'm not immune to the haze hype, I had just spent 2 hours in line on Wednesday at a Tired Hands release for 2 of their IPAs. But while they share a style in name, they are different types of beers. There are some nights I prefer a clean, crisp dry IPA, and I think Stone is at the top of the class in that category. Now, I see eye to eye with you on Xoco. Great stuff.
I'll believe it when I see it, but really, if they don't make it into OK I'm not going to be disappointed. Some decent beers (namely Xocoveza), but a lot of mediocre beers (especially IPAs).
I know. Right?
One of my all time favorite movies has a very interesting title.
The movie is called: Things Change.
And I just hauled some IRS back in my suitcase from a trip a couple of months ago!
I can find the popular stuff,but i'm hoping i'll be able to find a bigger assortment.
Don't tell us, tell Stone that you need your fix and maybe WY will not be last.
Oh I did! Very kindly too!
It's cool to hear! Although here in Central Florida the Stone IPAs I see on the shelves are usually a little too old for me to pull the trigger on. That being said I hope they don't make beer that doesn't sell, that's not really helping.
I can vouch that they're not here in SD yet, have not heard when Stone arrives. What a year, getting Bells and Stone!
Just had a Delicious IPA on tap and cracked open a Xocoveza to celebrate. I talked to a few people who said Enjoy By sold out within hours after the tastings at all the bottle shops. Glad to see them growing. I'll be especially glad come Thanksgiving
Very well put. It's not exactly an apples to oranges comparison- more like a fuji to honeycrisp comparison. Some prefer one or the other, but I say bring 'em all on, as long as I have a top version of each variety.
