Stone Brewing Berlin launches Ripper Pale Ale

Stone Brewing Berlin has launched Ripper Pale Ale, a San-Diego style pale ale, combining signature German, West Coast and Australian hops.

Ripper Pale Ale has been made available to the UK’s on and off trade.

Thomas Tyrell master brewer at Stone Berlin says: “We use pale ale malt and a smidgen of caramel malt to give this beer a deep golden colour. The beer is hopped with the newest and finest German hop varieties including Hallertauer Blanc, Hüll Melon and Mandarina Bavaria as well as Galaxy hops from Australia and Cascade from the US West Coast. This is our approach to blend German, US West Coast and Australian characters into one rippin’ good beer – and ride the wave from the Pacific over to the Atlantic Ocean.” 

Marcus Thieme, vice president and general manager European operations Stone Brewing adds: “After Stone White Ghost Berliner Weisse, our Stone Ripper Pale Ale is the newest addition to our range of now seven year-round beers brewed in Berlin, plus our seasonal mocha stout, Stone Xocoveza, in the autumn and winter season. We are very proud of the Berlin brew team, who have taken on the challenge of creating their very own San Diego Style Pale Ale with a German-Australian twist. The outcome is awesome: A fresh, crisp, hop-driven and well balanced pale ale.”

James Clay, business development director at James Clay comments: “As an iconic brewery known for its bold beers and big flavours it’s no surprise that Stone Brewing have once again released a beer that brings together different cultures to create a taste explosion. Drinking fresh is understandably important for Stone and we’ll be importing and storing cold to support this”

Stone Ripper Pale Ale is available all year in 24 x 330ml cans and keg, imported and distributed by James Clay. Each can is stamped with a packaging date and ‘enjoy by’ date, so that beer fans can best enjoy the beer’s intensity and finely balanced flavour.
