For 23 years, Stone Brewing has fought the good fight alongside fellow craft brewers, helping shift the national landscape of beer. In honor of the milestone, Stone Brewing raises the bar once more with an anniversary celebration of epic proportions.

The Stone Brewing 23rd Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival expands this year to include three days of festivities reaching across all its eight US locations.

“Our anniversary celebration is for our fans, who beginning 23 years ago have supported our unconventional ways and joined us in challenging the industrial beer industry,” said Greg Koch (pictured below,) Stone Brewing executive chairman & co-founder. “This years’ extended festival format allows for more participation, in more locations and with the same dogged devotion to craft. I’ll see you there, my brothers and sisters!”

The annual Stone Brewing Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival celebrates Stone’s rich history of bold and flavorful beers and commitment to craft beer camaraderie.

This year, the team raises the stakes, saluting its remarkable venues and furthering commitment to its local communities. Unlike years past, Stone will open its doors to craft beer revolutionaries at all US locations. That means more beer in more places. Cheers to that!
