The newest release of the Stone UNIQCAN-Series: The Hanscraft & Co. / Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale

    The newest release of the Stone UNIQCAN-Series:    The Hanscraft & Co. / Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale This ale brewed with quince fruit obliterates standards of the Reinheitsgebot and takes the haze craze to new heights Berlin, July 23 2018 – Stone Brewing – Berlin and Franconia’s revolutionary craft beer brewery present the second special release of the Stone UNIQCAN series: the Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale. Like all special releases of the series, this creamy-hazy ale comes in a 0,5l Gargoyle-clad (the guardian symbol and patron saint of Stone Brewing) can with a specially-designed label. Stone Berlin launched the Stone UNIQCAN - a super-limited beer series - out of Berlin in July 2018. Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince Essential Hazy Ale is a collaboration between Thomas Tyrell, brewmaster of Stone Brewing - Berlin and Christian Hans Müller the founder of Hanscraft & Co., who has been kicking out phenomenal German IPA’s since 2012. With this fruity-hazy NEIPA-inspired ale they help to restore an almost forgotten fruit to a new glory: the quince. The golden yellow, roundish fruit (which looks like a mixture of apple and pear) had gone out of vogue.  Even a ripe quince would take so long to cook that you could easily travel from Berlin to Franconia in the same amount of time. The quince's fruity-tart apple-pear-citrus-flavor of the Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale, takes the meaning of juicy to a whole new level and delivers a skillful balance of a distinctive and complex hop profile. Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale will be available exclusively at specialty shops starting August 1.   #hanscraftco   #stoneberlin   #stoneuniqcan   #uniqcan   #quniceessential Quick Facts Name: Hanscraft & Co./Stone Quince-Essential Hazy Ale Stats: 6.3% ABV, 45 IBUs Featured Hops: Centennial, Hallertauer Blanc, Amarillo, Yellow Sub Availability: 0,5l Stone UNIQCANs and from draft, Special Release     Tasting Notes   Appearance: Super-hazy and creamy like a quince smoothie.

Stone Brewing Berlin announces the UNIQCAN: New packaged small-batch special release program launches with Stone Tangerine Express IPA

  Stone Brewing Berlin announces the UNIQCAN New packaged small-batch special release program launches with                   Stone Tangerine Express IPA   Berlin, June 20 2018 – Stone Brewing Berlin announces the launch of a special limited release series, packaged in 500ml cans. The Stone UNIQCAN is inspired by the success of the „Stone Berlin Pilot Series“ program, a rotating cast of experimental, collaborative and limited edition beers. The name “Uniqcan” blends “unique” – as each release will be a unique beer – and “can” – the very best package today for maintaining a beer’s freshness. It is the perfect moniker for Stone Berlin’s super-limited, revolutionary small batch releases, rolling out of Berlin each month starting in July. These exclusive Stone UNIQCAN beers will be filled in specially designed 0,5l Gargoyle-clad cans fitted with a unique label for each release. The program’s beers will also be available on draft at Stone locations and an exclusive selection of bars and restaurants around Europe. “The flexible packaging format of our new Stone UNIQCAN opens the door to a ton of collaborative opportunities,” explains Marcus Thieme, Vice President & General Manager European Operations Stone Brewing. “We’ll be collaborating with other breweries of course, but I also see a future in collaborations with a variety of artists or musicians – you name it! Already in August we will come up with the first collaboration in a UNIQCAN – brewed together with a brewery from Franconia.” “The ‘Stone Berlin Pilot Series’ earned a lot of loyal fans, as it offered a rotating and exclusive taste of our experimental offerings. So we set out to make our special beers more widely available to you – our fans across Europe,” said Greg Koch, Executive Chairman & co-founder of Stone Brewing. He adds, “It’s just another example of how we’re constantly experimenting and exploring the world of craft beer to bring the best to our fans. Cheers!”     The first beer to kick-off the series is the Stone Berlin-brewed Stone Tangerine Express IPA, which will hit shelves beginning the week of July 1 and will be available exclusively at specialty shops. Stone Tangerine Express IPA was brewed for the first time in the US in early 2017 and skyrocketed to one of the most popular beers in the lineup of year-round offerings from Stone Brewing in the US. The European edition marks the first time the beer is brewed in Berlin. Stone’s brewers used whole tangerine puree to capture the essence of the bright flavors of the fruit with the addition of whole pineapple for a subtle, yet lingering tropical back note. Neither the hops nor the fruit dominate, yet together they create several complex fruit layers, which can only be achieved by brewing with the entire fruit. Eight different hops give this beer its marked dankness overtones and refreshing bitterness. It’s an express ticket to a beach hammock getaway with refreshing drink in hand, complete with punchy tropical fruit character and Stone’s signature bold hop bitterness.   Quick Facts Name: Stone Tangerine Express IPA Stats: 6.7% ABV, 75 IBUs Featured Hops: Magnum, Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, Mandarina Bavaria Availability: 0,5l Stone UNIQCANs and from draft all across Europe Tasting Notes Appearance: Light golden with slight haze. Aroma: Bright, fresh fruit aromas of pineapple, tangerine, and tangelo combine with citrus and tropical aromas from the hops. Taste: An explosion of fresh fruit and bright hops join together to create several complex fruit layers. Taste is both fruity and hoppy leading to a long finish. Palate: Crisp, clean, and refreshingly bitter. There is a pithy quality similar to biting into fresh fruit along with the backend bitterness one would expect from a Stone Brewing IPA. Overall: Working with fruit can be amazing and using good quality fruit is key to achieving that wonderful freshness and avoiding artificial flavorings. The high-end pureed fruit used here blends exceptionally well with the aroma and flavors from the hops creating a multi-layered IPA that also has the dankness and bitterness that superbly rounds out this beer.

Opera @ Stone: La Bohème presents a modern twist on Puccini’s classic love story, set in current-day Berlin and utilizing the expansive award-winning restaurant’s entire multi-level space. “Last summer I visited Stone Berlin for the first time and fell in love with the space almost immediately,” said Andrew Dickinson on his ambitious project. “By chance, Greg Koch, Stone Brewing co-founder was also there. I asked him if he was open to the idea of transforming their amazing bistro into an opera dinner theater. He was intrigued, said yes and here we are! Thanks to the support of Stone Brewing we have been able to assemble a phenomenal cast of singers and musicians for La Bohème. As an artistic space, Stone Brewing has enormous potential for the Berlin arts community.” Dickinson’s cast is a group of Europe’s best young singers, featuring soprano Micaëla Oeste (Musetta). Italian conductor Elda Laro will lead the Stone Opera Orchestra, to be accompanied by Berlin’s “Strassenchor.” The highly acclaimed Strassenchor was founded by Stefan Schmidt in 2009 to bring an outlet for creativity to those in need. In honor of the adventuresome craft beer and opera pairing, Stone will brew an exclusive draft beer especially for the event. In addition, Stone executive chef Robert Hilges has crafted a decadent three-course menu specifically designed to accompany the production. "We’re proud to take on this exciting and creative project together with Andrew and Stefan,” adds Marcus Thieme, vice president & general manager of Stone Brewing – Berlin. “Music is a part of Stone’s DNA. We view musical taste similar to how we view craft beer preferences: breaking pre-conceived expectations is fun!" Shows begin at 19:00 and are comprised of two, one-hour acts. Young opera aficionados can enjoy a shorter, family-friendly vocal and piano version of “La Bohéme” including a rich breakfast buffet on June 3rd.

A Hoppy Start To Spring: Stone Brewing Releases Stone Go To IPA

  Undeniably fresh addition to Stone Brewing’s year-round IPA lineup: Nine different hop varieties create a hop explosion of an IPA Stone Go To IPA now available in over 20 countries in Europe   Berlin, March 30 2017 – Intensively hopped and bold, big-flavored beers are known to be the passion for Stone Brewing. Taking another step into that obsession, Stone Brewing Berlin is pleased to introduce Stone Go To IPA to over 20 markets in Europe, including UK, the Nordics, France and Spain. Brewed with nothing but barley, hops, water and yeast, Stone Go To IPA is the ultimate refreshing beer and loaded with intense peach, citrus and melon aromas and all the complex hop flavor that Stone IPAs are known for, creating a virtual hop explosion! “To achieve these glorious hop qualities and still maintain a modest ABV, we used a technique called ‘hop bursting’,” said Thomas Tyrell, Master Brewer at Stone Berlin. “This approach involves infusion of a massive amount of hops during the final phase of the brewing process to coax out the robust flavors and aromas of the hops. Stone Go To IPA achieves its fruity, citrus notes by dry-hopping with mostly Mosaic and Citra, plus a complimentary addition of Cascade hops.” Stone Go To IPA is 4.7% ABV and is therefore considered a “session” beer. Session beers are defined as ales or lagers below 5% ABV, which allows for greater drinkability within a reasonable stretch of time. The technique of Hop bursting helps to overcome the challenge of making a lower alcohol full-flavored brew that doesn’t taste thin or watery. Using this method creates an intense hop aroma and flavor along with a satisfying bitterness. Stone Go To IPA is brewed with a selection of nine different hops and will be available year-round. IPA enthusiasts and curious craft beer novices alike will be able to satisfy their appetite for the almighty hop with this everyday go-to ale.    Quick Facts Name: Stone Go To IPA Web: www.stonesalesmaterials.com/europe Stats: 4.7% ABV, 65 IBUs Availability: 0,33 l cans and draft Hop Varieties: Magnum, Cascade, Chinook, Sterling, Crystal, Mosaic, Amarillo, Citra , Hallertauer Mittelfrueh Distribution: Germany, Switzerland, Austria, UK and Northern Ireland, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Russia, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Hungary   Tasting Notes Appearance: Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma: The hop aromatics are mind blowing. Intense peach, citrus and melon flavors dominate the aroma in the best possible way. Taste: Hop flavors continue to dominate, but are balanced by just enough malt to keep things reasonably in balance. But make no mistake, this beer is very, very hop-forward! Palate: Dry and refreshingly bitter, the finish makes you want to drink more! Overall: This beer employed the hop bursting technique, which in essence is a hopping method where all or most of the bitterness in the beer comes from late hop additions in the brewhouse at the end of boil and in the whirlpool. The result is a beautifully aromatic beer with substantial, but somewhat mellow, bitterness. The hop bursting also enhances the flavor retention of the hops, and combined with the dry hop, creates a very intense and complex hop flavor.   Suggested Pairings  Appetizers: Chips and salsa, South American ceviche, shrimp tacos, baked artichoke Soups and Salads: Cheddar Cheese Stone Ruination Doubble IPA Soup, summer roll with peanut dressing Entrees: Grilled salmon, Homemade Tagliatelle with Lightly Smoked Tomato, jerk chicken Desserts: Carrot cake, kaffir lime yogurt mousse, apple fritters Cheeses: Mild cheddar, Comté, Morbier   For more Information and photos, please check our dropboxes for photos, pictures and logos and our Press Kit as well as  www.stonesalesmaterials.com/europe.     Stone Brewing   Founded by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner in 1996, the groundbreaking San Diego-based Stone Brewing is the 9th largest craft brewer in the United States. Recognized as an industry leader, Stone is one of the fastest growing companies in the US. Stone Brewing has been called the “All-time Top Brewery on Planet Earth” by BeerAdvocate magazine twice, and was named the “Top Rated Brewer in California” by RateBeer Best in January 2017. The multifaceted company is the first American craft brewer to independently build, own and operate their own brewery in Europe (Berlin, Germany). Known for its bold, flavorful and largely hop-centric beers, Stone has earned a reputation for brewing outstanding, unique beers while maintaining an unwavering commitment to sustainability, business ethics, philanthropy and the art of brewing … and pledging never, ever, to sell out to the man.  For more information on Stone Brewing,  please visit stonebrewing.eu or the company’s social media sites: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and The Stone Blog.   Contact Stone Brewing Berlin Colin Lenz Stone Brewing GmbH | Im Marienpark 22 | 12107 Berlin, Germany P +49 30  212 343  40 | M +49 151 239 71 870 | colin.lenz@stonebrewing.eu | www.stonebrewing.eu

A Rippin’ Swell of Juicy Hops: Stone Brewing Berlin launches Stone Ripper Pale Ale

[rip·per] Australian Slang: Something especially strong, fine, or good of its kind Berlin, November 2 2017 – It’s no doubt you’ve dreamed of escaping the grey British autumn. Do you find yourself daydreaming about the sun, the beach, and your surfboard? While the weather will persist, beer fans can now grab a fresh Berlin-brewed Stone Ripper Pale Ale – an ode to sunny summer days and – a Rippin’ Swell of Juicy Hops! This fresh and juicy San Diego-style pale ale is inspired by coastal surf culture and combines signature German, West Coast and Australian hops for a Stone Berlin take on a classic style. The awesome golden beer has a light body and a nice blend of citrus and tropical fruit hop flavor. With a bounty of dry-hop flavor and aroma, this beer is Stone Berlin’s current-day interpretation of a hoppy American West Coast style pale ale – with an Australian accent. “We use pale ale malt and a smidgen of caramel malt to give this beer a deep golden color,” said Thomas Tyrell, Master Brewer at Stone Berlin. “The beer is hopped with the newest and finest German hop varieties including Hallertauer Blanc, Hüll Melon and Mandarina Bavaria as well as Galaxy hops from Australia and Cascade from the US West Coast. This is our approach to blend German, US West Coast and Australian characters into one rippin’ good beer – and ride the wave from the Pacific over to the Atlantic Ocean.” Marcus Thieme, Vice President & General Manager European Operations Stone Brewing adds: “After Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse, our Stone Ripper Pale Ale is the newest addition to our range of now seven year-round beers brewed in Berlin, plus our seasonal mocha stout, Stone Xocoveza, in the autumn and winter season. We are very proud of the Berlin brew team, who have taken on the challenge of creating their very own San Diego Style Pale Ale with a German-Australian twist. The outcome is awesome: A fresh, crisp, hop-driven and well balanced pale ale.” Stone Ripper Pale Ale is available all year in 0,33 l cans and on draft.

Press Release   |   September 20, 2017

No Schuss!* Stone Brewing - Berlin launches Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse

The Berliner Weisse to end the non-traditional “sweet additives” travesty.   Berlin (September 20, 2017) – For decades, the noble Berliner Weisse has been forced to live in wrongful perdition. A complex sour beer, once honored by Napoleon’s troops as the “Champagne of the North,” has in recent generations been badly mistreated and become woefully misunderstood. In just the last 100 years, the authenticity of the style has been unjustly adulterated by artificial flavorings, colorings, sugar and sometimes even schnapps. Choosing instead to be completely and authentically traditional, Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse is a tart and refreshing Berliner Weisse.  The beer gains its orthodox lightly sour and acidic character from a specially selected Lactobacillus strain sourced from historical Berlin cultures. To ensure a properly Stone - and therefore iconoclastic - Berliner Weisse, the ABV is a healthy 4.7% and the beer is hopped with new German hop varieties. The result is a true Stone beer: Unexpectedly bold and pleasantly refreshing. Unbeknownst to the average Berliner is that the addition of ‘schuss’ flavorings is a fairly recent occurrence in the 600+ year history of the style. In modern times, most consumers have learned to believe that it is required to add sugary syrups with artificial flavorings and colorings to the beer. In a country that prides itself on purity, this is a bit of a bewildering practice. However, craft brewers around the world, including now in Berlin, are opting for the true tradition of complex and flavorful Berliner Weisse that would be ruined by pouring in such neon colored additions. “What better way to celebrate the dynamic beer culture of Berlin and the culmination of Stone’s first year in the city than with a traditionally-brewed Berliner Weisse? It’s especially fitting now, at a time of renewed interest in the authentic Berliner Weissen style,” said Greg Koch, Executive Chairman & co-founder, Stone Brewing. “I mean, of course - where else? It’s exciting that the craft beer movement has given this unique style back to this great city. With Berliner Weisse styles from Brewbaker, BRLO, Lemke, Schneeeule, and Stone, we can enjoy a variety of this iconic symbol of Berlin once more.”   Thomas Tyrell, Master Brewer at Stone Berlin adds: “At Stone Brewing, we’ve been inspired by many things in our first year in Berlin, but nothing has been more inspiring than the city itself and its rich brewing tradition. Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse is brewed with a Lactobacillicus strain, which was chosen from a selection of decades-old Berlin based strains to ensure the perfect balance of flavors that are authentic to the original style. We’ve rounded out the tartness with German Hüll Melon and Calista hops, bringing a balanced and fresh finish to this bright and crisp beer.” Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse is now available in 0,33 l cans and from draft. Each can is stamped with a packaging date and ‘enjoy by’ date, so that beer fans can best know when to enjoy the beer’s intensity and finely balanced flavour.     *a shot of syrup or schnapps added to a Berliner Weisse by those who have the audacity to change this classic style     For more Information and photos, please check our dropboxes for photos, pictures and logos and our Press Kit.   Quick Facts Style: Berliner Weisse Alc/vol: 4.7% Hop Varieties: Callista, Hüll Melon Beer page url: http://www.stonebrewing.eu/beer/stone-brewing-year-round-releases/stone-white-ghost-berliner-weisse   Tasting Notes Appearance: Pours cloudy golden with a white head.

The Berliner Weisse to end the non-traditional “sweet additives” travesty.
 

Berlin (September 20, 2017) – For decades, the noble Berliner Weisse has been forced to live in wrongful perdition. A complex sour beer, once honored by Napoleon’s troops as the “Champagne of the North,” has in recent generations been badly mistreated and become woefully misunderstood. In just the last 100 years, the authenticity of the style has been unjustly adulterated by artificial flavorings, colorings, sugar and sometimes even schnapps.

Choosing instead to be completely and authentically traditional, Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse is a tart and refreshing Berliner Weisse.  The beer gains its orthodox lightly sour and acidic character from a specially selected Lactobacillus strain sourced from historical Berlin cultures. To ensure a properly Stone - and therefore iconoclastic - Berliner Weisse, the ABV is a healthy 4.7% and the beer is hopped with new German hop varieties. The result is a true Stone beer: Unexpectedly bold and pleasantly refreshing.

Unbeknownst to the average Berliner is that the addition of ‘schuss’ flavorings is a fairly recent occurrence in the 600+ year history of the style. In modern times, most consumers have learned to believe that it is required to add sugary syrups with artificial flavorings and colorings to the beer. In a country that prides itself on purity, this is a bit of a bewildering practice. However, craft brewers around the world, including now in Berlin, are opting for the true tradition of complex and flavorful Berliner Weisse that would be ruined by pouring in such neon colored additions.

“What better way to celebrate the dynamic beer culture of Berlin and the culmination of Stone’s first year in the city than with a traditionally-brewed Berliner Weisse? It’s especially fitting now, at a time of renewed interest in the authentic Berliner Weissen style,” said Greg Koch, Executive Chairman & co-founder, Stone Brewing. “I mean, of course - where else? It’s exciting that the craft beer movement has given this unique style back to this great city. With Berliner Weisse styles from Brewbaker, BRLO, Lemke, Schneeeule, and Stone, we can enjoy a variety of this iconic symbol of Berlin once more.”  

Thomas Tyrell, Master Brewer at Stone Berlin adds: “At Stone Brewing, we’ve been inspired by many things in our first year in Berlin, but nothing has been more inspiring than the city itself and its rich brewing tradition. Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse is brewed with a Lactobacillicus strain, which was chosen from a selection of decades-old Berlin based strains to ensure the perfect balance of flavors that are authentic to the original style. We’ve rounded out the tartness with German Hüll Melon and Calista hops, bringing a balanced and fresh finish to this bright and crisp beer.”

Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse is now available in 0,33 l cans and from draft. Each can is stamped with a packaging date and ‘enjoy by’ date, so that beer fans can best know when to enjoy the beer’s intensity and finely balanced flavour.
