If you think the beers that you brew are delicious, best to name them as such. That’s what Stone Brewing did with a couple of “delicious” variations.
Here’s the deal…
Stone Brewing is renowned for its IPAs, and they are celebrating things with three different takes on their bestselling Delicious IPA that are now available all year-round.
The gluten-reduced West Coast Style IPA is now joined by two special variations in a format rarely seen on shelves – a variety can six-pack.
The three beers of the Stone Delicious Six-Pack are individually unique recipes: The original, the sequel and the remix.
And this is how the Escondido, CA-based brewery describes them…
- Stone Delicious IPA (7.7% ABV) packs a refreshing and hoppy lemon candy flavor that make it especially complementary to an array of foods and a superior standalone IPA.
- Stone Delicious Double IPA (9.4% ABV!) stands out with a serious depth of flavor and explosive aroma of lemon and ripe fruit from Centennial and Amarillo hops. With less bitterness than a typical double IPA, this one is extra fruity, extra gratifying and extra Delicious.
- Stone Delicious Citrus IPA (7.7% ABV) is brewed with Talus hops that impart vibrant citrus notes complemented by the addition of sweet orange peel. The result is especially bright and satisfyingly juicy.
Stone Delicious IPA is one of the fastest growing IPAs in the US. It also happens to be gluten reduced, as are its two new companions. In fact, the Delicious family of beers clocks in below the FDA requirement for “gluten free” labeling (less than 20 parts per million). But since the beer is brewed with barley and the gluten is removed, Stone only gets to claim, “gluten reduced.”
“Expanding our Stone Delicious family was a big ask for us brewers because not just any IPA can live up to this name,” Jeremy Moynier, Senior Manager of Brewing & Innovation told American Craft Beer. “Each of these beers share a bright, vibrant citrus-forward quality that plays out in three distinctly different ways. And that kind of variety is hard to find in a six-pack!”
The new variety six-pack is available now nationwide. And even better it’s the same retail price as a six-pack of the original Stone Delicious IPA but with two cool variations.
