I wish them nothing but continued success and gettiogn bigger doesn't necessarily mean sacrificing quality although it becomes more challenging to be as innovative on a larger scale.
They were clear that their continued vision are quality, hoppy, full flavored big bodied brews..
I also like the green aspect of the company using solar panels for power and sustainable food at their restaurant.

As for the commercialism aspect, I don't think they'd ever let themselves get to the level of sacrificing quality for quantity. I took their tour about 2 weeks ago, and from what the guy said, it's their mantra to produce quality stuff no matter the demand. I also spoke with one of the employees after the tour, and he said that if they ever give up that ideal would be the day he quits.

Stone is my brother's favorite brewery...he primarily drinks Arrogant Bastard. He also likes Port Brewing's Hop 15 (Port Brewing) which is very similar to drinking what would be the equivalent of hops extract mixed 50/50 with pure alcohol...but surprisingly drinkable

Not to cut down stone because i think their ris is good but do yourself a favor and get some bell's expedition stout. It's an ris at about 10.5 and it is exceptional! I don't believe it's released until this month sometime but it's awesome.

They have distribution here in GA so they are large enough to get to Iowa, must be something else. Sounds like a mission, good luck!

Warning.......RANT!!



What is the deal with so many HBT'ers being elitist chumps? Why, when a small craft brewery that we labeled as good becomes successful and grows, do we bash it and say they are commercialist sellouts? We did it with Sierra Nevada, we are doing it with DFH, and now Stone? C'mon guys. Just because they build new, larger breweries and land some success at getting their brews distributed further than just where they can take their vans, doesn't mean they have become Dick Cheney and Halliburton. They aren't going to invade a developing country for their natural resources!!!!

Their recipes have not changed, their beer is just as good as it has always been and remember guys -- recipes are scalable! Scarcity of ingredients is a fallacy. Even the hop shortage is pretty much over!

Ok, I feel better now.
Let the Stone bashing continue.......

I don't think anyone is really bashing them. They are just stating their concerns that it might happen. Personally I've only had a couple of their beers and they were ok. I'm sure I've had an Arrogant Bastard and a Stone IPA, but they weren't the best I've ever had.

I do like their attitude and only time will tell if they sell out, whatever that means.

I don't think that's what the "c" stands for in EAC

That's just the way this site is sometimes - I was looking for a longhammer clone recipe and stumbled on a thread where someone was doing the same and the thread basically turned into a RedHook bashing contest - until a mod came in, cleaned it up; and actually put together a recipe for me that came out quite good.
