Behind every great beer are amazing stories of all the people, places and ingredients that culminate in what you have in your hand.
Under the wordy title of Stone Farm to Can Series, Stone Brewing Company has produced yet another beer that pays its respects to one of its key ingredients - hops. More specifically, the growers, top and bottom cutter drivers, the machinists, and the pickers of CLS Farms in Moxee, Washington. Using the famous hop, El Dorado, Stone's Moxee Gold IPA, like the mythical city the hop is named for, is a beer that tells a story with every sip. In addition to El Dorado hops, this beer also enjoys a compliment of Centennial hops with the warning to drink this beer while it's fresh at 7% ABV and 56 IBU.
This beer is the first in our Farm To Can Series, highlighting our hop growers that obviously play a critical role in our beers here at Stone Brewing. This IPA features hops from CLS Farms in Moxee, Washington. CLS Farms is a large grower of the amazing Centennial, a classic hop found in several Stone Brewing beers, most notably Stone IPA. El Dorado is a newer hop developed by CLS Farms, featured in Stone Delicious IPA. Our brewers paired both hops together to form a seemingly simple but amazing West Coast IPA that celebrates collaboration and the bond between grower and brewer.
Look for this beer, wherever you find Stone Brewing Company beers and if you're ever in Yakima, during the hop harvest, honk and wave to the hard-working farmers of the Yakima Valley.
