About this Blog
Inspired by the documentary "Beer Wars" I have taken on the daunting task of profiling a different beer every day in the month of November. The idea is to shine a light on some of the fabulous beers that don't have huge advertising budgets and don't command shelf space in the local super markets. These are the beers that you will find in the local taverns served by people who know and love beer.

Day 2 "Stone 10.10.10 Vertical Epic Ale"
The result is a beer that reminds me a little of champagne but I wouldn't mix it with orange juice on a Sunday morning. It paired very well with my lobster and crab chowder at Manderes in Folsom. Stone's Epic brews are released each year on the epic date 8.8.08, 9.9.09 etc. and are designed to be aged and consumed on 12.12.12. I couldn't wait that long.
