The newest release in Stone Brewing Co.’s Enjoy By Series is being released today.
According to the Escondido, Calif.-based brewery’s website, the new incarnation of the series is Enjoy By 7.04.16, a 9.4 percent ABV double IPA brewed with 12 different hop varieties: Ahtanum, Amarillo, Calypso, Cascade, Citra, Delta, Galaxy, Helga, Motueka, nelson saurian, Simcoe and super galena.
With more than 35 releases so far, the Enjoy By Series started in 2012 and includes IPAs that are specifically brewed with an enjoy by date for optimum freshness. However, Stone turned the Enjoy By idea on its head in 2014 by releasing Enjoy After 10.31.15, an IPA with brettanomyces wild yeast added to it, which will add an unknown factor to what the beer will taste like after it develops.
Enjoy By 7.04.16 will be packaged in both 22-ounce bottles and six-packs of 12-ounce bottles, and will be available across Stone’s entire distribution footprint starting today.
