Stone Vertical Epic

On 11/11/11, Stone Brewing Co. released the latest ale in their “Vertical Epic” series (see yearly breakdown). Stone launched the series on 02/02/02 and releases a new one annually one month and one day from the previous year.

“As with any good epic, herein lies the promise of larger-than-life experiences, heroics and twists & turns as the adventure unfolds”

The series will end on 12/12/12, the date each beer in the series is intended to be aged until — no doubt a date that will see many an epic vertical consumed.

Today, the first complete (so far) Vertical Epic series beer auction appeared on eBay, with a starting bid of $799.99. Considering the inaugural 2002 release goes for about $300 on occasion, it'll be interesting to see if this one gets any takers.
