Liquid Arrogance
Arrives In New Jersey

Escondido, San Diego County, CA --- After resounding success in other areas of the east coast market, Stone Brewing Co. is ready to make way into New Jersey. The Southern California based brewery is currently one of the fastest growing breweries in America; and is famous for making bold, big character, uncompromising beers. Until now people have had to drive from Newark, Atlantic City, Hoboken, Trenton, Hackensack, and Toms River to places in Pennsylvania, Virginia, or New York to obtain Stone Brewing’s splendid ales. That will no longer be necessary.

Stones beers will begin hitting shelves in New Jersey starting on Monday, March 20th. Andy’s Corner Bar in Bogota will host the official kickoff party on Wednesday the 22nd. Beer fans can join Stone Brewing’s east coast representative, Michael Saklad, as he introduces people to Stone IPA, Stone Smoked Porter, Stone Ruination IPA, and the one-and-only Arrogant Bastard Ale.

Some of the aforementioned beers might not be familiar to a lot of east-coasters (yet) but Stones beers will soon become household names to many in New Jersey. Besides the beers mentioned above, craft beer lovers can expect to see a few brews from Stone’s Special Release selection as well. The lauded Stone Imperial Russian Stout, the intense Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine and the merciless Double Bastard Ale will show up on shelves in coming months.

Hunterdon Brewing and Distributing Company, based in Phillipsburg (45 Howard Street, Phillipsburg, NJ 08865), will distribute Stone Brewing's beers throughout the entire state beginning March 20, 2006. For distribution information contact Dave Masterson at 908.454.7445.
