Guests will get to enjoy the entire series at their leisure in the company of other craft beer enthusiasts. A Stone insider will also be present to talk a bit about the series and it's origins, as well as what's next for Stone now that they have finished the SVE's.

Where: Hotel Healdsburg (25 Matheson Street, Healdsburg, CA 95448), right next door to Bear Republic's Brewpub. Guests should not plan on driving themselves home after the event, as there will be a lot of beer flowing. There are several wonderful accommodations in the area, including Hotel Healdsburg itself.

When: Saturday, January 12th, 2013 starting at 5:00pm

Who: Anyone 21 years or older is welcome to attend. The event is hosted by Sullivan McCarthy Brewing of Sonoma County, who are a pair of aspiring brewers. The beers provided are from their private collections. Guest space is limited so you MUST RSVP to participate, though you don't need to register here. Simply get in contact with Jon McCarthy to get added to the guest list.

How Much: Despite the considerable cost of amassing and properly aging this one-of-a-kind series of ales, the event is free to beer lovers everywhere, and it won't cost a cent to participate. However, the event is a fundraiser for Sullivan McCarthy brewing. All donations will go towards increased brewing capacity and future batches. A suggested donation is $50 to $60 per person.

Please feel free to contact Jon with any questions, and remember to RSVP or risk missing out on this truly rare tasting event!
