Stone Brewing has teamed up with Bear Republic and Fat Head’s Brewing to create the next craft beer in their Collaboration Series lineup: TBA Extra Hoppy Brown Ale.  Brewed with five types of malt and four types of hops along with brown sugar and molasses, TBA is sure to be a big mixture of nutty brown malt with a strong hop kick.  In other words, absolutely delicious.

The name comes from one of the first homebrews Matt Cole, Fat Head’s Main Brewer, made in the early ’90s which was a twist on the classic Brown Ale style and consequently didn’t fall within specifications when he entered it into competition.  Eventually a style category was created, the American Brown Ale which allowed for more of these hopped-up brown ales to be created and perfected.  TBA is an ode to the trailblazing character of homebrewers in the past and in the future.

TBA was brewed at Stone on December 19 so should be hitting shelves sometime near early March.  Keep your eyes peeled for packs of 12oz. bottles.
