Stone Enjoy After 10.31.15 Brett IPA | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Stone Enjoy After 10.31.15 Review

What you hold in your hands is an experiment. This IPA is spiked at bottling with Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that, over time, brings about charmingly unpredictable complexities of spice, funk, acidity, and more. The operative words in our beer-cellaring thesis are “over time.” For those of you who are impatient or like to experiment, the earliest we recommend sampling this beer is 10.31.14. The beer won’t be fully carbonated until that date. Ideally, you’ll want to cellar the beer up to–or beyond–the Enjoy After date to help it reach its full evolutionary potential. At that point, some facets of the Brett characteristics will have mellowed, while others will have become more profound; it all matures into a fascinating and delicious culmination. Individual results will vary…and that’s both the beauty and the intent behind this beer. Read More »

Each cork is fire-branded with “Valar Dohaeris,” the traditional response phrase to “Valar Morghulis” meaning “all men must die.” Read More »

Ballast Point Homework Series Batch #3 – English IPA | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews


The recipe for this English IPA was pulled from the archives: it was the first IPA ever brewed by Ballast Point. Williamette hops from Puterbaugh farms contribute a grassy cantaloupe aroma. This beer has a nice deep gold appearance, with a soft mouth feel from residual sugars left by the English Ale Yeast. Buy This Beer Online Here – http://www.craftcity.com Read More »

Beer Geek Nation presents San Diego Beer Vlog: GABF 2014: Denver and Ft. Collins
