    Sounds like a plan to combat Sam Adams who combatted Stone originally.

    It's only War Room Business. As you can see it's now only "Craft" vs "Craft" now.

    I was hoping NJ would be back in the rotation for this release but apparently not. Good thing I work in NY!

    Stone always leaves Connecticut off of the distribution list on the bottom of that webpage, but every Enjoy By that wasn't a CA only release made it here.

    i wonder how different the taste will be by leaving the haziness, are we looking at a juicy version of enjoy by? juicy AND resinous don't seem like they can coexist in a brew very well.

    Pumped for this...and I doubt Stone is trying to "combat" Sam Adams and their hazy IPA release. In fact, I would venture to say that nothing Sam Adams does in the IPA world is even remotely close to the consistency and awesomeness that Stone brings to the table when it comes to their IPA's. Have they fallen flat a few times with newer IPA's? Sure...I haven't enjoyed them all, but Delicious, IPA, Ruination, Go To, and Enjoy By all are far superior IPA's than anything SA has ever produced. That's my opinion at least. I'm not saying SA IPA's are poor quality, or bad...but you're talking about Stone...and Stone has made some of the best year-around IPA's on the Earth. Period. Besides, Jim Koch has dissed the style for a long time...he clearly doesn't love them or respect them like Greg Koch does at Stone. Love the lupulin...don't just make it to cash in.

    Well said. As a hophead myself, I've moved away from store purchases and have gone mostly to growlers in the interest of freshness. Stone is maybe the only brewery of whom I'll still try their new hoppy stuff in the bottle, nearly every time. They are definitely the only bottling brewery (in my region) that excites me with news of their upcoming hoppy beers. I think that's largely due to the fact that they continue to be adventurous, pay great attention and detail to product freshness (huge for hopheads), and clearly see their (mostly hoppy) beers as more than a product. I never really get the feeling of someone at Stone saying "I bet we'd make a killing if..." but instead more of a "people gotta taste this shit!" It's clear they make what they like, but still listen to what people want. And Greg, if you are reading, I want some goddamn Dayman already! Cheers!

    I wonder how many confused photography/Instagram aficionados we’ll get since Stone is promoting via #nofilter on social media and right on the bottle? :slight_smile:

    Stone are marketing geniuses. Small wonder they are one of the most successful craft breweries.

    I doubt Greg is making moves with SA in mind. Jim should bow before Greg, and politely.

    Hazy is lazy. I'm tired of drinking snow in a bottle. Cold crash the nectar fellas and rack it. You can still call it unfiltered and I get to enjoy looking at the beer as much as tasting it. Never been a fan of Stone. I can make 5 gallons for the price of their 12 pack.

    I don't think beer should ever be filtered as much as it is most of the time. Unfiltered beer is almost always more flavorful and it just looks awesome. Can't wait to try this!

    You think their beer is expensive? They've always been pretty competitive. Ballast Point on the other hand...

    Can't wait for this.

    I just wish that Stone would increase output. Two years ago i had absolutely no issue finding enjoy by. In the past 15 months however it's gotten very difficult to find in NY, PA and NJ. Seems like the distributors are hoarding it for some reason.

    A year ago finding regular enjoy by was somewhat hard. Now I gotta chase after 3 ahhhhhhhh! At least they are gonna do this in 6 packs from the get go. Wish they would have with the black.

    Hey hey, that's what we need, a ballast point and Stone collaboration, "put your money where your mouth is ipa"

    How about just 6 pack release sorry not sorry and be done with it.

    I bet this isn't as hazy as people here are thinking it will be. Unfiltered beer can and should be clear (and it often is- biofine is becoming a popular precipitant these days, and brewers can bypass DE by using it). Hazy isn't all it's cracked up to be, and the proteins and yeast will adversely effect the beer- which is still important, isn't it?!! Anyway, I bet Mitch does it correctly.
