Stone 13th Anniversary Beer

Stone's 13th Anniversary beer is hitting retailers this week. I bought a bottle this evening and the guys working at The Olive Tree Marketplace, which received its shipment this afternoon, said it was selling fast. It looks like another hit beer for Stone. I will try it and write about it in the near future. What struck me about 13th Anniversary was its $5.79 price for a 22 oz bomber. Ballast Point's Sculpin and Alesmith's Yulesmith are priced at $7.50 to $9.00 per bomber, and specialty beers from The Lost Abbey, The Bruery, Russian River and others can hit $15, $20 and even $30 a bottle. Good for Stone for keeping beer prices reasonable, especially when it could sell this beer for a much higher price.
