Last weekend’s Stone Go-To IPA 6 pack sale was met with such a great customer response we decided to run it again this weekend. So starting today we will be offering six packs of Stone Go-To IPA in 16oz cans for only $6.99. This session IPA boasts all the gloriously bitter, citrusy, piney flavor of Stone’s bigger / industrial-strength IPAs, but with a significantly lower alcohol-by-volume (4.5%) allowing IPA fans to enjoy more of this amazingly, hoppy beer over a longer session, without giving up any of that gloriously crave-able botanically-driven dankness. While supplies last!
After multiple months of speculation, Lone Pint Brewing finally released their signature SMaSH IPA Yellow Rose in 4 packs! They chose 500mL bottles as the release size, and they are currently in stock. We’re selling them as 4 packs or singles while supplies last, with limit of one 4 pack per person in this first shipment.
