Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 - Stone Smoke Porter

Today's show was a twin-benefit show...Toys for Tots and Beers for Boys...of course the former being the only real charity. Chip ran down the GABF awards and talked about how many of our local brewers made out. It was nice to see many of our members on the list and also many of the guys I met at the MBAA winning awards, including Terry from Bullfrog winning a gold medal, and our own Lew Bryson winning a beer-literary award.

I'll admit from there I spent most of the rest of the show saying to myself...wait Stone Smoke Porter for $2.50 @ Grotto, wait...really? Somehow I don't think 22oz Stone Smoke Porters will be going out the door @ Grotto for $2.50 any time soon, but perhaps someone should take one for the team and check it out...honestly even for the 12oz bottles (which I think we do get on the east coast), this is a good deal. If you've not had this beer, listen to Ruthie and check it out. I'm not a real smoked-beer fan, and I'll admit when Steve the former owner of Elmer Sudds suggested I try one years ago, I was skeptical. But Stone pulled it off very nicely. This is a beer worth trying, and at $2.50 a bottle you can't go wrong.

Cheers guys.....great show as always.

  1. I went to the Grotto Skybox last night. No Smoked Porter to be had, only Michelobe Dunkel.

  2. I know it's supposed to be Friday only and only as long as it lasts. I assume they only have a case or two of some of the beers so they probably just ran out. The dunkel was Nov 7th, so they probably have a few cases. If you haven't ha dthe Stone it's worth finding and trying.
