Stone Brewing to Debut in Finland Starting April 15
Celebrate Stone’s arrival to Finland with Stone Brewing CEO & co-founder Greg Koch at two public events
BERLIN (April 13, 2016) – Stone Brewing’s bold and flavorful craft beers will begin arriving in Finland the week of April 15. A leader in the global craft beer revolution, Stone is the first American craft brewery to build, own and operate its own brewery in Europe. The destination brewery and restaurant Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Berlin will open in Germany this summer.
The California craft brewer has chosen Finland-based importer Diamond Beverages as its distribution channel. With the addition of Finland, Stone now distributes to 17 countries.
“We’re excited to see interest in craft beer continue to grow in Europe,” said Stone CEO & co-founder Greg Koch. “We looked for a distributor as committed to delivering fresh craft beer as we are and who would handle our beers as carefully as we brew them. Diamond Beverages meets all of our high standards, including refrigeration throughout every step of the distribution process. I’m looking forward to personally participating in the kick-off events in Helsinki this April.”
In addition to select special releases, Stone’s year-round beers to be distributed by Diamond Beverages throughout Finland include:
- Stone IPA – This is the iconic West Coast style IPA that launched generations of hop fanatics.
- Stone Ruination Double IPA – Big, bold, bitter and hugely aromatic. A liquid poem to the glory of the hop.
- Stone Go To IPA - A vibrant hop-bursted session IPA that delivers all the fruity, piney character of a much bigger IPA.
- Stone Cali-Belgique IPA –California meets Belgium. Tropical fruit with hints of banana and clove complement the clean hop bitterness of our flagship IPA thanks to a special Belgian yeast strain.
- Arrogant Bastard Ale – The infamous one-of-a-kind ground-breaking beer. You’re Not Worthy.
