Dear Enotecans,

This email is about a fantastic and delicious beer from Stone Brewing Co. of San Diego.  It’s their Double Bastard Barleywine.  The new 2012 vintage has arrived in 22oz and gigantic 3 Liter bottles, and we’ve just tapped a keg of 2011 Double Bastard we’ve been cellaring for a year!

Whiskey Wednesday, come by for some free tastes of Whiskeys of the World tonight.

Thursday is Stout Day, and we’re celebrating by holding a Stout Beer Tasting event!

Ready for Stone Double Bastard?

I love this beer, it’s incredible.  Easily one of Stone’s best beers, and it’s only released once per year.  Does it age well?  Why yes it does!  A couple months ago I got to taste some from 2006, a six year old beer, and it was heavenly.  The barley wine flavors come together with time, hops curb off and the malt comes forward for a complex and delicious flavor.

Buy a case or two and see if you can let some of those bottles age!  Drink some now of course, because it’s that good, but also save some in your closet, basement or cellar to open a year, two years, six years down the road.  The reward is worth the wait.  Fine Beer Club and Rare Beer Club Members get a 15% discount when ordering a case, we make it easier to start your cellar collection!  Read more about beer cellaring here.

We’ve aged a keg!

To demonstrate the aging properties of this beer, Enoteca has cellared a keg of Double Bastard from 2011.  We tap it today.  Come down and grab a bottle of 2012 from the fridge and grab a pint of the 2011 on tap and do a vertical tasting.  See What’s On Tap any time, and get a text message when we tap a new keg.

We also carry the extremely limited edition chained-and-locked 3 Liter collectable bottles.  Just a few left, so hurry up and get your order in.

Here’s what Stone Brewing says about their beer:

This is one lacerative muther of an ale. It is unequivocally certain that your feeble palate is grossly inadequate and thus undeserving of this liquid glory…and those around you would have little desire to listen to your resultant whimpering. Instead, you slackjawed gaping gobemouche, slink away to that pedestrian product that lures agog the great unwashed with the shiny happy imagery of its silly broadcast propaganda. You know, the one that offers no challenge, yet works very, very hard to imbue the foolhardy with the absurd notion that they are exercising ‘independent’ thought, or attempts to convey the perception it is in some way ‘authentic’ or ‘original.’ It’s that one that makes you feel safe and delectates you into basking in the warm, fuzzy, and befuddled glow of your own nescience. Why so many allow themselves to be led by the nose lacks plausible explanation. Perhaps you have been so lulled by the siren song of ignorance that you don’t even notice your white-knuckle grip on it. You feel bold and unique, but alas are nothing but sheep, willingly being herded to and fro. If you think you are being piqued in this text, it is nothing when compared to the insults we are all asked to swallow streaming forth from our televisions and computers. Truth be told, you are being coddled into believing you are special or unique by ethically challenged “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” marketers who layer (upon layer) imagined attributes specifically engineered to lead you by the nose. Should you decide to abdicate your ability to make decisions for yourself, then you are perhaps deserving of the pabulum they serve. Double Bastard Ale calls out the garrulous caitiffs who perpetrate the aforementioned atrocities and demands retribution for their outrageously conniving, intentionally misleading, blatantly masturbatory and fallacious ad campaigns. We demand the unmitigated, transparent truth. We demand forthright honesty. We want justice! Call ‘em out and line ‘em up against the wall… NOW.
