YEW! Stone Brewing announces Stone Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager. This Baja-inspired beer was born on the small-batch system at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station. A wedge of lime on the rim of a lager is status quo, if not trite. But this lager, brewed with lime and with just the right add of salt, takes on unexpected qualities that ratchet up the Baja influence.
Brewer Ben Sheehan is credited for the recipe. He sought a crisp, clean, refreshing lager that would go great with his SoCal taco habit and year-round outdoor living. Every so often Stone’s brewers add a ‘just for fun’ beer to the Executive Taste Panel and every so often those earn a spot on the big system. All agreed – Ben nailed that SoCal vibe. So, we let Ben tell you about it:
“Stone Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager’s inspiration comes from Southern California, which is vibrantly influenced by our neighbors to the South. California spoils you with warm weather that encourages outdoor activity year-round. From surfing our coasts, to snowboarding and biking in the mountains, off-roading through deserted lands, or boating and fishing in our lakes, Stone Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager is the cool choice. It’s a thrillingly crisp, clean, refreshing Baja-inspired Lager that quenches thirsts, while gratifying taste buds via lime and sea salt. So, leave your culinary accents at home, apply some sunscreen and soak up the sun with some suds and buds (friends).”
No doubt, this lime-laced cerveza especial is a flavorful beer for the midday sun, toes in the sand, Adirondack chair kind of afternoon. And there’s no arguing it’s an elevated – unabashedly independent – lime-in-your-lager experience.
Stone Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager is available in 12oz 12-pack bottles, 22oz bombers and on draft through the end of the year. In Spring 2020, its sinister calavera breaks through to 12oz six-pack cans nationwide.
