The first collaboration between Stone Brewing Co., Ardent Craft Ales, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and Terry McAuliffe, governor of Virginia has not shipped yet, but information on a second release has already come to light.
While the first beer was a stout, the second collaboration is an 8 percent ABV IPA brewed with both blackberries and raspberries named Give Me IPA Or Give Me Death. The first collaboration between the four entities is being released Dec. 12 and is named Give Me Stout Or Give Me Death, a 9.5 percent ABV “aggressively hopped” imperial stout brewed with Belma and nugget hops before being conditioned on Virginia-grown blackberries and raspberries.
In an email, Lizzie Younkin, public relations manager at Stone, told Tenemu that while many of the details have not been finalized as of yet, the new IPA is scheduled to begin shipping nationwide in January 2017.
