Stone Double Dry Hopped IPA keg to be tapped at the Public House on Friday, August 14.

At 2:00 p.m. on Friday, August 14, NABC Grant Line beer manager Mike Bauman will be tapping a keg of Stone Double Dry Hopped IPA at the Public House. My quick web research reveals that it's a special release from Stone, with proceeds at the brewery's Escondido CA facility benefiting Peter Reeves. I'd report more, but that's all I know at present.

The beer itself is not a Double IPA, but Stone's usual IPA that has been "double dry hopped." Very few of them made it to Indiana. We were given the choice of this keg, or a Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean keg -- not both. It was a tough call, and our efforts to bribe the sales representative were politely rebuffed. We're hopheads, so ...

Would have like to taste the smoked porter.

I love the bamberg fest.
