Come Out For Blue 5’s Stone Enjoy By Party This Wednesday (And Support The Brewery Coming To Roanoke Too)

Blue 5 Enjoy By PartySomewhere down the road, we just might be able to say that Stone Brewing almost single-handedly brought the importance of the fresh-as-possible IPA to the consciousness of the mainstream craft beer drinker.  Their IPA with the date stamp for a name has consistently grabbed headlines since its introduction nearly a couple years ago, and has reinforced the issue of freshness with hop forward beers even among the most experienced craft curious folks.  The latest incarnation (for the moment) of the Enjoy By IPA has been consistently touted as one of the best yet, and the celebration surrounding its release is far from over, thanks to its not so hidden, read between the lines deadline for imbibing, April 20 (4.20).  As bottles of this beer will plainly tell you by the neck description of “Devastatingly Dank”, April’s Enjoy By is imbued with plenty of deeply rich citrusy, and yes, dank-ish type aromas and flavors, which, of course, are far more evident before the said date on the bottle.

This Wednesday, downtown Roanoke’s Blue 5 will celebrate Stone’s latest Enjoy By release by featuring it on draft, along with several other Stone beers.  There will also be giveaways of Stone Brewing merchandise, and the regional Stone Brewing sales representative is expected to drop by.  Not to be lost in the shuffle is Roanoke’s current interest in trying to persuade Stone Brewing to open up their east coast brewery right here within city limits.  So should you head out to Blue 5’s event for the party, consider taking some snapshots and sharing them on the Facebook page that was recently created to show Stone plenty of Roanoke area love.

The event starts at 6pm, so come out and enjoy plenty of Stone brews, and continue to make some noise for Roanoke’s chances for Stone to make the city its second home!
