TBA - Stone Brewing (w/ Bear Republic & Fat Head)

Sounds pretty interesting. 3 breweries collaborating together is really cool too.

A "Texas Brown Ale" brewed with Molasses and brown sugar. Mixed with being a very hop forward beer. Not one for cellering to they say. Being released tomorow. They will post the distribution states its going to, tomorrow as well.

I like that they are using the Texas Brown Ale name rather than brewing a beer that has been brewed for decades and pretending they invented it (cough cascadian dark ale cough).

Arrogant Bastard was for a long time the closest commercial thing to Texas Brown Ale. Lagunitus WTF and Grand Teton Bitch Creek are closer.

Here is some info on the style if anyone cares. If you don't read the link the takeaway point is that this is actually a style with origins in California and not Texas though it was popular with homebrewers there.

Exactly! There were already ppl from TX making stupid comments about, " I can't believe they made TBA with no brewery from tx...".

Stone put them in their place though, and said how the style originated in CA, and to "breathe" :lol:
