Lagunitas Brewing Company Hop Water

(Available in 4pk Bottles)

– Non-Alcoholic

Lagunitas Hop Water is a fresh take on an old tradition … An IPA-inspired refreshment that’s zero-alcohol, zero-carbohydrate, and zero-calorie, made using everything we know about hops. It’s chock-full of Citra, Equinox, and Centennial hops, as well as some natural flavors and a pinch brewer’s yeast to biotransform-ate the hops to just the right flavor. 
What is biotransformation? Brewmonster Jeremy Marshall put it best: “Yeast biotransforms the existing hop terpenes into more desirable terpenes. You need yeast to liberate the hop flavors, and that’s the most important thing that we know from making IPAs, and we leveraged it in making Hop Water.” Whatever that means…
So what about the Hop Water? Jeremy Marshall describes it as “refreshing on its own… it fills that ‘Oh, I want to have an IPA, but it’s 9:30 in the morning and I’m out of IPAs’ kind of thing.”
Try the Hop Water on its own for a beer-like tasting experience (without the alcohol, of course), or mix it with your favorite spirit to add a hoppy zing to your cocktail game! Jeremy says, “Think of it like a club soda… with soul. Lots of soul. Like Rick James and James Brown. Rick Brown.”
It’s a variation on a theme of 25 years of edgy brewing at the edge of brewing. Cheers!

We’ve got a big juicy secret for ya. Word on the street is this ale’s loaded with bunches of earthy-floral Mosaic and citrusy-piney Simcoe hops AND sources tell us it’s even packing some fresh mango juice in the mix.

Stone Xocoveza

(Available in 22oz Bottles & On Draft)

-Mocha Stout

-ABV: 8.1% -IBUs: 50

There’s nothing like making a beer so beloved that people feel compelled to campaign for its return. So, in the spirit of the holiday season, we are very pleased to give our fans the number one item on their wish lists. As illustrated by the avalanche of social media requests, that is Stone Xocoveza, an insanely delicious take on Mexican hot chocolate brewed with cocoa, coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. First brewed in 2014 with San Diego homebrewer Chris Banker after his recipe won our annual homebrew competition, this imperial stout is layered with smooth roastiness, semisweet chocolate and a touch of spice. Thanks entirely to you, this creamy, mocha stout has gone from initially being a one-time offering to a yearly tradition. Happy holidays from all of us to all of you…and feel free to continue enjoying it long into the spring and summer, as this gem will age beautifully and is definitely not exclusive to the winter season!

We partnered with our friends at High West® Distillery to create a barrel-aged version of  Ballast Point Victory at Sea, our award-winning Imperial Porter with cold-steeped coffee and vanilla.

Our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is a bold, smooth brew with just the right amount of sweetness.

Our flagship Sculpin IPA shows its complexity in this limited Spruce Tip edition. For a different twist on our traditional IPA, we added fresh Oregon spruce tips that contribute a unique piney, citrus and woody character on the nose.

A great brew for the holidays and well beyond, this is a standout in a forest of IPAs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA

(Available in 22oz Bottles & On Draft)

– IPA

– ABV: 7.5%   IBUs: 76   

To create a recipe so tropical and fruity without the addition of fruit was no feat our team of brewers would leave up to the gods. They took floral and citrus notes from Mosaic, Loral and Mandarina Bavaria hops to dish up a mouthwatering fruit punch to the palate. Get deserted on your own island or share with others. One thing is for sure: there is no need to light this one. It is already on fire.
