Escondido, CA’s Stone Brewing Co. is made up of a crew of celebration experts. This is exemplified by the “Leave No Stone Unturned” gimmick, with the upside-down labels, turned heads, and twisted minds everywhere. The brand is famous for its hard-hitting IPA’s — they’ll make you dance, then promptly KO you. What better way to celebrate America’s birthday, then, than with a limited-edition IPA? Enjoy By 07.04.21 is Stone Brewing Co.’s limited edition grog for ‘Merika lovers everywhere.
The tangerine and pineapple flavor bouquet promises to grab drinkers’ attention amid festivities. Of course, any beer infused with fruit is nutritional, too (because science).
Hitch up your Star-Spangled shorts and schedule a stop on the way home from the fireworks stand, America. You’ve got less than a week left to enjoy Enjoy By 07.04.21.
Special Beer for a National Holiday
Stone delivers Enjoy By 07.04.21 for just 38 days in 2021, with a grand finale date on the Fourth. The can design really sells the stunt, but the beer itself looks like more than a publicity brew. Tangerine and pineapple are audacious choices; Stone allows that the “juice character is really intense and lingers big time.”
But Enjoy By shouldn’t produce the same effect your cousin Randy from Bartlesville does every Fourth when he gets really intense and lingers big time. Instead of wraparounds and half a carton of Marlboro Smooths, Enjoy By 07.04.21 packs four varieties of hops, including signature Mosaic and Citra varieties.
The result is a 9.0% alcohol beast that’s really just juice. Or something. The more I think about it, you’ll probably want to keep these bad boys away from cousin Randy if at all possible. If he starts backing up those Strawber-Ritas with some Enjoy Bys, we could all be in for a long afternoon.
Enjoy By: The Grand Finale
Score yourself a sixer of Enjoy By 07.04.21 by July 4, 2021. Or, hell, treat it like fireworks and the U.S.A. — more is better, right? You can’t celebrate the Greatest Country in the World without bringing the noise.
To find Stone Enjoy By 07.04.21, go to find.stonebrewing.com. There, you can specify styles and search according to your zip code. Results are surprisingly precise. I found that if I went to my local store less than 2.5 miles away, I could buy 11 of them.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have important product testing to attend to.
