Stone Brewing, the San Diego- based brewery considered by many as one of the finest craft breweries on the planet, just announced its entry into another country; a nation that happens to boast a population greater than that of any other country in the world. I’m talking of course about China, which now joins approximately 40 other countries where Stone Brewing beer is available.
Since Stone Brewing brews its beers in San Diego, some might wonder about the quality of the beer once it reaches its destination, halfway around the world. But craft beer lovers in China need not worry because Stone Brewing is utilizing its cold supply chain to make sure the beer remains at a controlled temperature from San Diego all the way to Chinese restaurants, bars, and retail outlets. Stone Brewing actually tracks the temperatures every step of the way, ensuring that the beer remains chilled and at peak freshness.
Stone Brewing co- founder Greg Koch paid a visit to China and says his encounter with Chinese beer lovers exceeded expectations.
“I returned from China energized and blown away by the welcome we received”, said Koch. “Our reputation had evidently preceded us, and I loved being there as our fans enjoyed the bold and complex aromas and flavors of uber fresh Stone beers for the first time.”
