Stone is a brewery that is taking the craft beer world by storm. Whether it be their collaborations with breweries like BrewDog, Nogne O or Jolly Pumpkin. Or it be their great videos that they post about different events or goings ons at the brewery. Or maybe it’s just the funny tongue in cheek humor you can find on the back of all their bottles. But needless to say people seem to like Stone a lot.
Well lucky for us here in South Florida we will get to celebrate Stone for the next few days with numerous events.
Bethany Sherwin, the Southeastern US rep for Stone, will be making the trek down here and it I don’t see her having much time to enjoy the beaches. One because we are going through an awesome cold spell that sees temperatures in the 50s and because she is going to be mad busy.
So how about less jibber jabber and we get to the events?
