REVIEW: Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale
At the beginning of April, Stone Brewing Company expanded their distribution to the Minneapolis and St. Paul markets of Minnesota. Shawn was fortunate enough to get his hands on a bottle of the company’s Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. I still don’t know how to classify this beer — and even Stone doesn’t give it a label — but it is of the India Pale Ale variety, only black. The beer was first released as the 11th Anniversary Ale in January 2009 but the creators were so taken with it their only conclusion was to continue production. I am joined this week by special guest Luke. Thank you to Stone Brewing for providing us with this sample.
Here is the rundown on the beer with information from the brewer’s site.
Style: (Black) India Pale Ale ABV: 8.7% IBUs: 90 Hop Varieties: Chinook, Simcoe, and Amarillo First released: January 2009
