The Tremont Taphouse in Cleveland will host Stone Brewing Co. for a meet-the-brew crew event at 4 p.m. May 2. Stone fans will be able to chat with brewery quality assurance supervisor Rick Blankemeier and production warehouse lead Robbie Chandler.
Blankemeier and Chandler will be in Cleveland to celebrate the national release of Spröcketbier, a black rye Kölsch-style ale. They designed the recipe that won an interdepartmental competition dubbed the Stone Spotlight Series. Having their beer brewed, packaged and distributed nationally beginning April 21 was the first place prize.
In addition to Spröcketbier, Tremont Taphouse will have Stone Cali-Belgique IPA aged in red wine barrels, Matt's Burning Rosids Imperial Cherrywood-Smoked Saison, 2013 Stone Old Guardian OAK-SMOKED Barley Wine and Stone "The Tiger Cub" Saison aged in white wine barrels.
