Merry Christmas from the Window Sill!

Stone Brewing first opened its taps in San Diego in 1996. They have since moved to Escondido, CA, but let’s talk about the Enjoy By series. Starting in 2012, cofounder Greg Koch challenged his brewmaster to create the world’s freshest IPA. In order to ensure they were enjoyed fresh, they were named after the last day of peak freshness. The first release was 9.21.12, and 12.25.17 is the latest. How many have you tried?

The 12.25.17 is an unfiltered double IPA brewed with 11 kinds of hops! Nugget, Super Galena, Simcoe, Delta, Target, Amarillo, Cascade, Galaxy, Citra, Nelson Sauvin, Motueka and Helga. Got all that? It’s tropical, intense and hoppy, with notes of peachy goodness. The haze is on point, too. Truly delicious. Also, I enjoyed mine on Christmas Eve, just before the deadline!

There’s no deadline for when you can enjoy our Instagram, so head over there!
