One thing that is evident throughout the whole book is Greg’s, and all others involved in the brewery’s success, unwillingness to budge on integrity and their vision. They had plenty of opportunities to make a quick buck, but they stuck to their guns and just continued down the path of making the great beers that they had a taste for until the rest of the world caught up with them.
The book details how many of Stone’s famed beers came into existence, which makes for an interesting read in itself, but there’s loads more! It includes a beer and food tasting guide, recipes straight from the kitchen at Stone’s World Bistro and even homebrew recipes of their own beers…a couple of which I’ve already earmarked for future brews. Bring it on! I was so inspired by this book that I went out and bought a bottle of Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale, a black IPA which is currently rated 100/100 on RateBeer, which was as expected, superbly sublime!
