Stone Vertical Epic Ale Release

It's that time again where the latest limited Stone release that everyone has been drooling over finally gets released in Kansas City. Most recently it was Double Bastard, and this time around it's the Stone 11.11.11 Vertical Epic Ale . This year's Vertical Epic will be hitting Kansas City store shelves tomorrow, Friday the 9th.

The 2011 Vertical Epic Ale was brewed with Anaheim chilies and cinnamon. According to Stone, the idea behind the Vertical Epic Ales is to age them until 'sometime after December 12th, 2012' and then after that point, enjoy them in a 'vertical' tasting. Of course, knowing my level of patience, there's no way I'll be able to hold onto one of these for a year, especially since I'm very curious how the chilies and cinnamon will work together in this beer.

So keep an eye on the usual suspect liquor stores tomorrow to see when this hits the shelves. I don't know exactly how much of this is coming to the Kansas City area, but I'm sure it will go relatively quickly.
