Episode 133 – Stone Pale Ale
These next few episodes were filmed at McGillin’s Old Ale House, now celebrating their 150th anniversary. Today we look at Stone Brewing Company’s Pale Ale, their flagship beer, first released in June of 1996. It turns out their pale ale is not a hop-bomb, (something we often accuse Stone of being, especially being a west coast brewery) but is instead a nice, well balanced beer. It’s still west-coast style (so yes, hoppy), but it has a nice intro and a great finish, and you should definitely try it out.
