NEW YORK, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Alewife NYC, a craft beer and food destination in Long Island City (5-14 51st Avenue, LIC, 11101; 718.937.7494), has been selected as the East Coast venue for Stone Brewing Co,’s much anticipated Vertical Tasting of its Vertical Epic Ale series. Alewife NYC has ties to this amazing Escondido, CA-based brewery and for the first time on the East Coast, the past 10 Vertical Epic Series Ales will all be in one room at one time only for your tasting pleasure. Stone’s 12.12.12 Vertical Epic Ale marks the end of an era. Since 2002, Stone has released a unique, Belgian-influenced, bottle-conditioned ale, with each subsequent beer available exactly one year, one month and one day from its predecessor, and designed to be aged and enjoyed together on 12.12.12.

The tasting event will be held at Alewife NYC on Wednesday, December 12th 2012. The taps will start flowing at 12 p.m. with 10 of the Vertical Epic beers from the year 2003 right up to the newest edition of 2012. Rounding out the taps will be some Stone favorites like the Ruination IPA, Smoked Porter, and Imperial Russian Stout, as well as a few rare casks and numerous special bottled offerings. Alewife will be pouring some very rare and special aged beers, many beers that have never been, and never again will be, poured on the East Coast.

The Stone Brewing Vertical Epic Story:

Alewife’s Chefs Greg & Travis will be creating a special ‘Vertical Epic’ menu to pair alongside these amazing beers.
