Beer Description

Bumped-up Belgian-style wit made all the more alluring with an infusion of orange peel, coriander, black pepper, and a healthy dose of Centennial hops.

In 2002 we began our groundbreaking, millennium-inspired series with Stone 02.02.02 Vertical Epic Ale. This bumped-up Belgian-style wit—made all the more alluring thanks to an infusion of orange peel, coriander, a sprinkling of black pepper and a healthy dose of Centennial hops—was a bright way to begin this unprecedented eleven-part vertical tasting. Being that it was the first in a sequentially released series of beers (originally designed to be enjoyed together ten years into the future), and that only 300 cases were produced, this became quite easily the rarest and most highly sought-after beer we have ever brewed. However, nothing this coveted should be relegated to such a fate. Back for an encore, now all of those who missed out the first time can taste what was the start of something truly epic.

What about Stone Vertical Epic Ale 01.01.01? Well, there are two reasons for its non-existence: (1) We didn’t want to participate in the whole overhyped media nonsense of “Millennium this” and “Millennium that,” and (2) we didn’t think of the Stone Vertical Epic Ale idea until the fall of 2001 (which was already too late for a 01.01.01 version.) Sure, we could wait until the year 3001 to start this series, but we were afraid that with all that time between now and the next millennium, we might forget. Besides, that millennium will probably be overhyped as much as the last one.
