25 April 2017

James Clay has joined forces with the ninth largest craft brewer in the US to import six of Stone Brewing's best-known beers to the UK on-trade.

To give you a taste, the West Yorkshire importer and distributor will be bringing the Californian brewery's Stone IPA, Stone Cali-Belgique IPA, Stone Ruination Double IPA and Arrogant Bastard Ale (among others) this side of the pond.

'We’re excited to see the interest in craft beer continue to grow in Europe and as the UK has an established craft beer market, we look forward to fans enjoying cans delivered as fresh as possible from Berlin,' Stone executive chairman & co-founder Greg Koch said.

'We looked for a distributor partner as committed to delivering fresh craft beer as we are and one that would handle our beers as carefully as we brew them. James Clay meets all of those high standards.'

Ian Clay, founder and MD at James Clay, added: 'Stone Brewing is one of the world’s most celebrated craft breweries and is a pivotal inspiration to the remarkable global craft brewing revolution. Their IPAs are rightly considered modern classics, so we are delighted that James Clay is partnering with them in the UK, distributing these award-winning beers across the country.'

Stone IPA, Stone Go To IPA, Stone Cali-Belgique IPA, Stone Ruination Double IPA, Arrogant Bastard Ale and Little Bastard Ale are available in 30 litre kegs and 24x33/50cl cans.
