To help celebrate Stone Brewing Co.‘s 21st birthday, and 91X’s broadcast from the Stone Invitational Beer Festival at Cal State San Marcos this Saturday the 19th, the 91X Beer for Breakfast team got to spend some time with none other than Stone Brewing Co. co-founder Steve Wagner for this week’s edition of Beer for Breakfast ABV.
And seeing how 91X craft beer enthusiast Paul Segura from Karl Strauss Brewing Co. was unavailable for this week’s episode, it was like old times as Tommy reunited with Steve, who were both on the air together on another beer-sampling radio show on another station several years ago.
Along with Tommy, Producer Danielle and Abel from the 91X What’s Hoppening blog, the Beer for Breakfast team was augmented by “returning champion” Garett Michaels, who also has a long relationship with Steve. And being known for, among other things, their anniversary beers — the Stone 21st Anniversary Hail to the Hop Thief Double IPA did not disappoint:
Stone 21st Anniversary Hail to the Hop Thief
9.8 percent ABV
The Hop Concept Citrus and Piney
8.5 percent ABV
Stone and NOFX Punk In Drublic Collaboration
American Pale Lager
5.8 percent ABV
Classic West Coast-Style IPA
6.9 percent ABV
These days Stone Brewing Co. has locations from San Diego to Pasadena to Berlin, but their brewery and flagship World Bistro Gardens are still worth visiting, located at 1999 Citracado Parkway in Escondido.
