Greetings Chemical Brothers & Sisters,
At the end of last year we shared a special holiday mix download and collected your names for a prize drawing of the extremely rare “Velodrome” Vinyl. We’re pleased to announce the winners:
- Jose from Lafayette Hill, PA
Hey, that’s me!
I’m stupid excited about this. I’ve actually had two Enjoy By series already. I had the 09.21.12 during my beer tour vacation to San Diego this past summer, and my cousin managed to get me a bottle of the 12.21.12. Both were absolutely spectacular. I will be picking up as many of these as I can.
Stone Vertical Epic Lunch
This past Saturday City Tap House and @PhillyStone hosted a special beer tasting lunch that sampled most of the Stone Vertical Epic series. Each year, Stone has created a unique take on a Belgian style that was meant for long-term aging, resulting in some exciting, rare beers. The first batch was the 02.02.02, and each advanced by a year, a month, and a day, up to the most recent, and final, batch 12.12.12. As one might imagine, these beers tend to be very hard to come by, so I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to try so many of them.
The lunch itself was a great time. The crowd was great, the food was great, and the beer was awesome. At the end of the night, they decided to auctions a growler of each of the 10 Vertical Epics and the Lukcy Basatrd, with the entire amount being donated to the Ronald McDonald house. We walked away with a growler of the 06.06.06.
