Stone 22nd Anniversary

“Our anniversary celebration is for our fans, who beginning 23 years ago have supported our unconventional ways and joined us in challenging the industrial beer industry,” said Greg Koch, Stone Brewing executive chairman & co-founder. Twenty-three years. That’s a lot of bar-top preaching and going down our own path. It’s a lot of come-along-and-see-for-yourself… and boy did you all come along. All along the way we have continued to celebrate new fans as we open newlocations and we have so many great beers to showcase. This years’ extended festival format allows for more participation, in more locations and with the same dogged devotion to craft. I’ll see you there, my brothers and sisters!”

The annual Stone Brewing Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival celebrates Stone’s rich history of bold and flavorful beers and commitment to craft beer camaraderie. This year, the team raises the stakes, saluting its remarkable venues and furthering commitment to its local communities. Unlike years past, Stone will open its doors to craft beer revolutionaries at all US locations. That means more beer in more places. Cheers to that!
