Two of Stone Brewing Co.’s staple beers will not be brewed this year.
In an email, Colleen Gatlin, public relations manager for Stone, confirmed to Tenemu that both Imperial Russian Stout and Old Guardian Barley Wine will not be released in 2017.
“That doesn’t mean this beer is permanently retired, just that it’s not on our schedule for the coming months,” said Gatlin in and email to Tenemu. “You never know when a new batch could pop up again. In the meantime, the good news is these beers are great with some extra age, and you can find previous years’ editions at our Company Stores and your local bottle shops.”
Imperial Russian Stout was last released in March 2016 while Old Guardian was last released in February 2015.
