A 2013 Stone Collaboration Special Release
Pour yourself a cup of Joe and sit a spell as we share with you the tale of a most uncommon India pale ale. Our story begins amid the howl of the Windy City at a homebrewing competition dubbed Iron Brew, which was built to showcase Chicagoland's burgeoning sect of fermentation craftsmen. Such was the quality of this homespun libation melee that it drew a most illustrious panel of judges—acclaimed author and beer evaluator Randy Mosher, co-founder and brewer Jim Ebel of Chicago's Two Brothers Brewing Company, and our own co-founder and CEO, Greg Koch. Together, the trio sipped, swished and swallowed their way to determining a hands-down winner.
