    The 19.2 oz cans are just singles correct?

    Why are they obsessed with Ibus? With the quick turnaround predicted, a hazy juicy brew could Be accomplished. They must hate $$$$

    According to the article both formats will be available, and yeah the 19.2oz cans will be singles.

    I've recently purchased a Founders Solid Gold in that sized can, and they were sold in the refrigerator case alongside all of the other large format single cans (Heineken, Sapporo, etc.). I'm guessing that now craft brewers are trying to gain a foothold in that section of the stores.

    That's the norm these days out here with choices like Anchor, Dales, Fresh Squeezed, BFD, etc. It's a 19.2 oz trend.

    I haven’t seen Enjoy By forever, it’s either not in distro right now or it doesn’t sell which would be hard to believe.

    The can says Unfiltered IPA, and then the press release calls it both a double IPA and a triple IPA..."And like our unabashed enthusiasm for our country’s independence, this double IPA is unfiltered, delivering a truly uninhibited hop character. If you’ve been longing for the classic satisfaction of a West Coast triple IPA amidst the juicy, hazy and milkshake-y craze, then these 37 days are for you.".

    What is it?

    Not hazy and a shell of what it once was. Maybe it is my palate but I had an awful hard time getting through the six pack. Sweet, boozy and harsh. I remember being blown away by this beer but I won’t bother anymore.

    I'm glad it's coming in a 19.2 because I gave up buying this in six packs, as I found by the second one I was usually over it. But if I saw a single or on draft I would usually try it and I would gladly purchase a 19.2, as I have been buying beers in this format and it has been working well for me.

    This and hoptimum and a lesser extent Waldo used to fit my palate well. 8-8.5 is my new threshold. I can deal with multiple sweet 6.8% hazy ipas. But there’s something about the ibus bringing a certain harshness. These big beers are no longer balanced.

    I can still do big stouts but double ipas that emphasize ibus? Nope. It’s gotta be a WC thing I can no longer get down with.

    I’ll buy a single like I have in the past and give it its fair share.

    Melvin just came to my area. I found their apa and basic IPA much more drinkable and balanced compared to 2x4.

    I think Enjoy By is great but at 9.4% in a 19.2 oz can, that just doesn’t seem responsible.

    Surely some other Stone Enjoy By customer has done so over the past 54 days?

    If I was a consumer of this beer I would indeed make the call.

    It would be 'better' if the local Stone Brewing Co, sales rep removed it without me needing to do their job for them.

    Agreed... but....
    Agreed. Also, in a stadium where a single 19.2 oz beer can be $10+ people are more likely to perceive value in the 9.4 ABV. Buy one... get your buzz for half the price... enjoy the show/game [with less bathroom breaks].

    Seconded.

    I bought 2 six packs of this enjoy by. It's a welcome sight to see around in stores saturated with the juiciest haze a brewer can market.

    To me NEIPAs are like chicken nuggets. Yeah they're tastey but they're not the real thing. They're a fussy kids dinner when the parents are having cordon bleu.

    Crazy that their rise in popularity has so many beer drinkers turning their noses at beers like enjoy by, head hunter, or 60 minute.

    Apparently no other customer has done so if it is still sitting there for over 50 days. Personally, I'd be a bit cautious about buying any beer sold by that retailer given that they themselves haven't already talked to the Stone Rep about removing the obviously old before stocking what is obviously a new "Enjoy By" beer.

    Sure it would be better if it was already taken care of, but how else is Stone supposed to learn their rep and or local wholesale distributor is slacking off on the job if nobody lets them know?

    We won't have an impact on getting these problems changed without something actually being done at the customer level as well. it's obvious that enough people are buying old beer that there's no motivation for the critical people in the distribution chain to change.

    That is kind of a gray area where the fault lies more on the actual distributor sales rep for that account. Sure, if a supplier rep comes in and sees their out of code (OOC) product, it should be addressed. However, most distributors have co-op deals with their brands when it comes to old beer being picked up. It tends to be a 50/50 split absorbing the cost, however, some distributors will only pick up entire cases of OOC beer while others will honor 4/6pks. If you know your distributor only picks up full cases and you see a rogue 6pk or two that is old, then by all means it should be purchased if you are the brand rep. Most all breweries who have the capabilities to hire a sales team reimburse their reps for picking up old product in the market.

    The sales rep in that territory is the one who is in that store regularly to do the order/inventory. He sees that old beer every week when he goes in and doesn’t address it. Usually, he is also the only one permitted to actually put in the request for a pickup as well as most distributors have specific paperwork or procedures for that.

    Yes, although there is still a sea of OOC product flooding the market as most reps try to keep their pickups to a minimum to stay off the radar.
