An intergalactic start to spring: Garage Beer Co. / Stone Cosmic Island New England IPA

With the Garage Beer Co. / Stone Cosmic Island New England IPA Stone Brewing – Berlin continues the Stone UNIQCAN series. For the third collaboration in 2019 Stone Brewing teamed up with Joe Gallimore, Head Brewer at Garage Beer Co. from Barcelona. Joe brought loads of Catalan sunshine and tropical vibes for this extraterrestrial Barcelona-goes-Berlin collaboration. The New England-Style IPA is the perfect way to blast off into spring.

The Garage Beer Co. / Stone Cosmic Island New England IPA is a fruity and juicy hop bomb reminiscent of summer, sun and beautiful Barcelona beaches.  The hop bill features Simcoe, Motueka and Callista aroma hops alongside a specifically selected British yeast strain create an out-of-this-world blend of dank hop aromas and tropical flavors with notes of peach and citrus. Oat flakes provide a very soft and pillowy body and mouthfeel that supports the juicy, hoppy character of this New England IPA.

Thomas Tyrell, Master Brewer Stone Brewing – Berlin: “Space, the final frontier. It is the year 2019. With our Garage Beer Co. / Stone Cosmic Island New England IPA, you will be boldly entering new taste galaxies where no man has gone before.” Joe Gallimore, Head Brewer, Garage Beer Co – Barcelona adds: “You see, we had a lot of fun brewing this beer. We’re excited to be brewing with Callista, a hop varietal developed in Germany that we’ve never used before, on the intergalactic space rocket that is Stone Berlin’s brew kit.”

About Garage Beer Co.

Garage Beer Co was started as a brewpub in January 2015 by Alberto Zamborlin & James Welsh, serving hop-forward ales and sours (using local ingredients) to the thirsty Barcelona public. The Garage soon blew up and in 2017 the guys had to build a wholesale brewery, complete with foudres, a barrel-ageing program and a canning line, located in the Sant Andreu neighbourhood. Considered one of the top breweries in Spain, they’ve been able to make waves in the craft beer community, collaborating on beers with many of the best breweries across the globe.
