Stone Brewing Co. has released a brand new beer, but it is only available in a new mixed pack.

The beer is Vanilla Bean Porter, a 5.9 percent ABV porter brewed with magnum and Mt. Hood hops as well as Madagascar vanilla beans. The new porter is a “fresh, smokeless twist” on the Escondido, Calif.-based brewery’s Smoked Porter (5.9 percent ABV) which was first released in 1996.
