Stoneman News Letter


Stoneman is Back

we are “All In” for this batch so please help support us so we can continue doing what we love to do… Creating something you can pour into an empty glass…

Stoneman Brewery’s Official Newsletter…


It’s been a little while since I have put together a newsletter on this email chain… I apologies for keeping people in the dark about the changes I have been making and I welcome any new people reading about Stoneman for the first time. 


To briefly recap I started one of the first Beer CSA’s in the country on my tiny one barrel farm brewery in the hill town of Colrain sourcing almost all the ingredients from near by farms brewing 100 batches a year for several years…  I have only sold beer to a handful of stores and restaurants since I was one of the smallest breweries in the North East and sold most of my beer directly to CSA members… Needles to say running a business by yourself, brewing, bottling, marketing, delivering and raising little Maggie (almost 3) was a lot for one person to handle… I slowed down the business a year and a half ago to come up with a better more sustainable plan, and recuperate from working myself into the ground…  The Beer CSA has taken a pause so I could figure out a plan to move forward…. and that day has come…


Today I am proud to release the first batch of “ALL IN WITH WESTERN MA HOPS IPA” 7% abv… I have started Contract Brewing in Williamsburg MA and I have brewed and caned a 23 barrel batch…  It is hitting the shelves as I type with the help from Berkshire Brewing Company who is now my distributor… Starting a one barrel brewery by my self has taught me a lot and I have learned a lot of lessons… I never intended to get bigger or go with a distributor but I also want to be able to continue at a more sustainable pace… My goal is to be able to generate enough excitement about these Contract releases and then I will be able to focus on small test batches / collaboration projects / start up a New Beer CSA Model that I have been working on for over a year… In order for my tiny brewery to work I have to generate enough capital working with other people and not doing everything my self… So brewing on a larger system and having my friends brewery distribute for me makes a lot of sense.


The Vision of Stoneman is still very clear in this larger batch… 100% of the hops came from Four Star Farms (Northfield) and 30% of the Grain came from Valley Malt (Hadley MA and 100 miles away in NY)… I also used flaked wheat from Maine Grain co-op…  It is a NORTHEAST Style IPA… all the hops were added after the boil so it a very aromatic ale with not a lot of bitterness and a smooth cloudy mouth feel from the malted and flaked wheat.  It is best fresh so please share this email / tell your friends to help support Stoneman…


I have taken a much needed break from social media / promoting / marketing but now I am back… here is my schedule of tastings for the next two days..


Friday June 23 4-530 @ Hagers Market on Route 2 just on top of the hill from Greenfield MA… It is the first of there farmers market series that happens ever other week… Come out meet the brewer and taste/buy some of this new beer


Saturday June 24  12-2 @ Pine Hill Orchards on Colrain Shelburne Rd…

Saturday June 24 3-5 @ River Valley Market in Northampton…


Here is the complete list of stores that have ordered this beer as of today


Atkins Farm Amherst

Ryan and Casey Greenfield

The Beer Shop E Longmedow

River Valley Market NoHo

4 season Hadley

Pine HIll Orchards Colrain

Provisions NoHo

Hagers market Shelburne

Cold River Package Charlamont

State St NoHo

Coopers Corner Florence

McCuskers Buckland


Sorry if I missed someone on the list it’s off the top of my head and I just spent the day driving around Boston for the for the first time hitting up stores along route 2 …


If you want my beer and live in MA tell your local package store to order through Berkshire Brewing Co or get in touch with Stoneman and he make sure you can get some…. The more people that stop it to there favorite store and request this beer the more I can make and continue on the path of the Vision Of Stoneman… One of the best things about distributing with BBC is that they are everywhere in the state so together we can easily get you a 4 pack or a case… People can also email me for a case order and I can hook it up to a package store near you through BBC… It’s a pretty amazing opportunity…


I have much more News on the way but for now I have to get ready to drive around tomorrow and do the Hustle…  I am very proud of this new larger batch and I couldn’t be where I am today with All of Your Help… Thanks for buying my product, believing in me, supporting me and please help spread the word about how special this beer is… 111 pounds of Hops in 23 barrels of beer…. All Four Star Farms Cascade, Nugget and Rakkau …  The More Beer I can sell this weekend and next week the larger the next batch can be which gets us closer to the goal or our New CSA Model release which I will explain later…


Cheers Justin Korby a.k.a. Stoneman…

Throwback Brewery News Letter

Mug Club Openings, Rock On Beer Release Party, New Brews, & More!

Hope everyone is having as good of a Summer as we are! In this email, we cover some of our July events as well as new beers and openings in our mug club. We hope to see you here to enjoy this amazing weather in our beer garden. Cheers!

Limited Mug Club Openings Now Available
Interested in becoming a member of our mug club? Well, now is your time – we are opening up at least 10 spots to make room for you!

The inaugural year of our Throwback Brewery Mug Club has been such a success, and in such high demand (thank you!), that we thought – why not expand it and make room for a few more?

So, if you haven’t heard the perks of membership yet, or are a current member who hasn’t yet re-upped, here is a recap of the special privileges that await for our lucky mug club members in year two!

Membership Privileges – Exclusive Benefits of the Throwback Brewery Mug Club include:
– Mug Sized Beers (19oz) at regular 16oz pint prices
– 25% off Throwback merchandise.
– A free burger (or veggie burger) & a beer during your birthday week!
– One free mug of beer to celebrate your initiation or renewal
– 10% off your food and beer order during Thursday and Friday lunches (
– Exclusive Mug Club-only appreciation events. In year 1, we had a behind the scenes tour of our farm and brewery, plus a Winter social with tasty snacks from Chef Carrie. We have more fun ideas for year 2!
– First access to limited bottle releases or special beer dinners and events before they go on sale to the public. This coming year, we will give mug club members first access to purchase our Fat Alberta chocolate peanut butter imperial stout. Also, like last year, instead of a bottle limit of 4, you can purchase up to 6 bottles if you choose.
– Bragging rights for helping to fund our big list of projects. In 2016, we used the mug club membership fees to buy and install acoustic tiles!

Also, as in year one, the top 10 most active mug club members receive 40% off their mug club renewal for the next year ($45). Renewal rate for alums is $75. First time mug clubbers is $100.

To learn even more about our mug club, click here.

Beer Release and Concert – Tuesday, July 18th!
When the non-profit Rock On Foundation asked that we brew a beer with them to support their Rock On Fest (featuring a bunch of female-led bands), how could we say no? Also, never one to really need an excuse for a party, we also thought ‘why not throw a release party here of this limited edition collaborative beer called Master of Art Saison?’! So come on by Throwback Brewery on Tuesday, July 18th from 6-9pm for the release of this beer plus a free show from Boston’s Damn Tall Buildings – a kick butt, folksy bluegrass band!

Note – this is a free event, but will be capped at ~200 for capacity reasons. Please make sure to grab a ticket on eventbrite if you would like to go!

About the Rock On Foundation. Founded by brothers Luke Bonner and Matt Bonner, Rock On Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that serves to enrich the quality of life in communities by supporting athletic, artistic, and scholastic initiatives.

New Beers!
On our 6th birthday party, we released
Kelly Likes Hops IPL – a hoppy lager, also known as an India Pale Lager. This beer is super crisp and clear with a full hop bouquet and taste – melon, grapefruit peel, with a bit of hop dank-ness. Some of you might be very surprised to learn that it’s a lager! This is the second beer in our Hoppin’ Summer Series – the first was Cashmere Track Suit (which has already come and gone, but you can expect it to make an appearance again early Fall!). In August, we are releasing a dry-hopped, tart blonde ale. And, finally, in September, you can look forward to a dry-hopped sumac sour!

Today, we ‘watermeloned’ our blonde ale – so look forward to Watta Melon by this Saturday.

Next Tuesday, July 18th at 6pm, come celebrate the release of Master of Art Saison – a hazy, golden-colored, dry saison with a big tangerine nose and flavors of tangerine, peach, and apricot – balanced by a kick of peppery spice from the saison yeast. This beer received its name as a tribute to indie-rocker Laura Stevenson who will be headlining Rock On Fest in downtown Concord, NH on Sat, August 12th – a festival boasting live music, basketball, family fun, outdoor yoga, an outdoor movie, and our beer!

And, finally, coming up for the 4th Annual NH Brewers Fest, we are brewing a special beer – a fruit-forward grisette. Light and drinkable at 4.6% ABV! For those of you without plans on July 22nd, we highly recommend this beer fest! There will ne more NH brews flowing than any other brewfest across the State. With OVER 40 of NH’s craft breweries hard at work to make this year’s festival the biggest offering yet- with special releases, collaborations, and several seasonals available. And let’s not forget how many of NH brewers and assistant brewers will be on site and pouring their brews! So grab a ticket, and come try our special release for this fest, and say ‘hi’ to Throwback co-founder Nicole.

  On Tap     Events  

Meet our newest Hop Cycle seasonal, Crimson Pistil


Crimson Pistil Hibiscus IPA, our brand new summer Hop Cycle seasonal, is now available everywhere you can buy Tröegs beer! It’s summertime. Hop bines are growing up to 6 inches a day. Hibiscus is in full bloom. And in Crimson Pistil, the two get in a glorious tangle of berry-like tanginess, sunset technicolor and sticky tropical notes. Check out our Brew Finder to locate some near you!


Tröegs Trip

This summer, you have a chance to win your dream trip to the Tröegs brewery in Hershey, PA just by telling us about your favorite summer adventure. If your entry is selected for the grand prize, you and a friend will get picked up for a choose-your-own-adventure style road trip with your very own tour guide from the brewery. We’ll work directly with you to create your own perfect two-night road trip that ends with the world’s best VIP brewery tour. For complete details, please visit

Scratch Beer Roundup

Scratch #284 – Raspberry Gose is now available on draft at the brewery! We also have a limited number of cases available for purchase in our General Store. Born as an antidote to hot and hazy East Coast summers, this puckish summer wheat is a friendly tug-of-war between ruby red raspberries and the benevolent bacteria lactobacillus. Prickly and floral, tangy with a touch of salt, this beer is your ticket to an endless summer. Just be home by dark. 5.4% ABV and 9 IBU. We’ll also feature Scratch #284 in our Anthology Summer sampler packs later in May.
Rugged Trail Nut Brown Ale recently hit tap lines in our Tasting Room! With Rugged Trail, we’ve reimagined a Tröegs classic by incorporating some of our favorite American hops for an invigorating spin on this otherwise traditional English style. Rugged Trail boasts a deep bronze hue, rich nutty flavor, and earthy hop profile. 5.0% ABV and 38 IBU. Availability: draft and growler fills only.
(717) Collaboration is back! Brewed in cahoots with Pizza Boy and Appalachian Brewing Companies, this marks the third consecutive (717) Collaboration release to commemorate Harrisburg Beer Week. This year’s offering, a pilsner brewed with lime zest and Hawaiian basil, is available on draft only. Try some on tap in the Tasting Room or while you’re out and about in the (717). 4.5% ABV and 20 IBU. Availability: draft and growler fills only.
At Tröegs, we’re always in a state of perpetual motion. Scratch #279 is a nod to our friends at the American Visionary Art Museum, hosts of the annual Kinetic Sculpture Race that takes over the streets of Baltimore for an entire day. In addition to our sponsorship of this year’s race, and in celebration of the spirit of human-powered amphibious propulsion, we offer a Scratch Beer we’ve dubbed Kinetic IPA. Dry-hopped with Chinook and Galaxy for a surge of sweet fruit, pine sap and citrus zing, Kinetic IPA will be available on draft for a limited time at bars and restaurants along the Kinetic Race route. You can also enjoy a pint in our Tasting Room. 4.5% ABV and 45 IBU. 
With Scratch #280, we continue our exploration of Pale Ales brewed with a single experimental hop variety. A joint venture of HopUnion and the Hop Breeding Company, the yet-to-be-named “HBC 342” lends a dominant tropical fruit character with a tinge of citrus and watermelon around the edges. 5.8% ABV and 66 IBU. Availability: draft and growler fills only.

Santo De Mayo Pub Night at Saint Arnold
Friday, May 5

Santo De Mayo is almost here! As fate would have it, the holiday falls on a Friday this year, so we’re turning our Pub Night into a full on Santo De Mayo Fiesta. Our Beer Hall will be open till 10:00 PM with special beers, food and all sorts of festivities!

Special tappings for the evening include Mango Habanero Art Car IPA, Raspberry AF-Rita Gose and more. Of course, there will be plenty of Santo flowing, and our brand new Santo De Mayo pint glass will make its debut. Our kitchen crew will be serving delicious Mexican dishes to pair with your Santo.

We’ll also welcome our amigo and Santo artist Carlos Hernandez who will be live printing t-shirts from hand carved woodblocks. You can also bring the Santo art to life by painting your face, dressing up, and entering our Santo costume contest!

Of course, it wouldn’t quite be Santo De Mayo without a mariachi band, so live music for the evening will be provided by Mariachi Tradición de Jalisco.

Happy Santo De Mayo!

Santo De Mayo 5K Presented by UHD
Sunday, May 7 at 8:30 AM

On Sunday, May 7, we’re bringing our love of beer and love of running together for our 3rd Annual Santo De Mayo 5K presented by UHD, an event that has quickly become our biggest of the year. The run will start at the brewery at 8:30 AM, snake through Downtown and wind up back here – where we’ll be conveniently waiting for you with beer!

Your entry will include a commemorative Santo De Mayo 5K pint glass, three tasty beers, a technical race shirt, chip timing, a commemorative race bib, a dazzling finisher medal and a breakfast burrito.

Entry is $50 to run, and there’s still time to sign up. If you’re not into running or you want to just cheer on a friend, you can still join us – $25 will get you a Beer & Party Pass, which includes the pint glass, three beers and a breakfast burrito.

Santo De Mayo Pub Crawl in Montrose
Saturday, May 202:006:00 PM

One of the greatest things about Santo De Mayo is you’re not limited to just one day – we like to celebrate throughout the month of May! Our annual Santo De Mayo Pub Crawl is on Saturday, May 20 this year, and we’ll still be in the spirit. We’re heading back to Montrose, and like we’ve done a few times in the past for our larger Pub Crawls, this one will feature two routes.

Everyone will start at Rudyard’s, where you’ll receive your punch card and learn your route. Obviously, we’ll do our best to not split your group of friends in half. Both routes will end at the same place – Doc’s.

The prize for completing the crawl is our limited edition Santo De Mayo pint glass. We will have a large but limited supply. Designated drivers are always encouraged to participate and eligible for the award! Here’s the layout:

Start at 2:00 PM:

Your route will include some (but not all) of the following:
Hay Merchant | La Grange | The Burger Joint | Stone’s Throw
Pistolero’s | Brasil | Poison Girl | El Real

Final Stop at 6:00 PM:

Rogue One Screening at Saint Arnold
Thursday, May 25 at 6:00 PM

On May 25, 1977, the first installment of Star Wars hit theaters. If our math is correct, this May 25 will mark 40 years of Star Wars. That calls for a celebration.

Join us at the brewery on Thursday, May 25 for a special screening of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If you want to go all out, do it. We’ll have a Star Wars costume contest starting at 7:00 PM, and Saint Arnold prizes await the winner.

Admission is $10 and includes one beer. Additional beer and food will be available for purchase. Doors open at 6:00 PM, and the movie will begin at 8:15 PM in our front parking lot. This is a bring-your-own-chair event.

Beer Brunch at Fusion Taco, N. Main
Saturday, May 13 at 12:00 PM

The fine folks at Fusion Taco are fusing together two things we enjoy very much – beer and brunch. On Saturday, May 13, they’ll be serving a special brunch taco menu at their N. Main location. Each course will be paired with our beer, and they’ll be serving Raspberry AF-Ritas as well.

Our Brewer Stephen and Marketing Dude Lennie will there to talk beer and brunch with you. They are big fans of both.

A Delicious Doppelgänger Emerges from the Darkness. Is He Friend or Foe?
Circus Boy vs. Zirkus Boy

You Must #ChooseYourHefe,
But Choose Wisely

Hefe Split 6'er

When Circus Boy, our beloved American-style Hefeweizen, decided to ditch his carnie confines, he hitched it to Germany where he befriended fellow rabble-rouser Zirkus Boy. For the first time ever, we present to you a Split 6’er of these 2 distinctly different Hefeweizens.


Circus Boy

An unfiltered Hefeweizen whose prolific American hefe yeast swings among the bubbles, creating a mysterious haze. Just below the surface of his light malt body lies a mischievous addition of lemongrass and a subtle citrusy finish.

Circus Boy
Zirkus Boy

Zirkus Boy

At first glance, Zirkus Boy appears to be Circus Boy’s delicious doppelgänger: unfiltered, unfettered and unmatched in his liquid jest. However, upon further inspection, German Hefeweizen yeast esters of banana and clove are present as they swing over the slightest hint of lemongrass.


Now that you’ve been presented with these two Hefeweizens, you must now #ChooseYourHefe. Polls are open on our website, so cast your votes or forever hold your yeast. Be sure to Tweet and post your pics to Instagram and Twitter, too, using the hashtag #ChooseYourHefe.

Magic Hat Mardi Gras

2017 Magic Hat Mardi Gras a HUGE Success!

We’d like to thank those from the Burlington community and beyond for coming out to the 22nd annual Magic Hat Mardi Gras Weekend March 10th–12th. It was a cold one, but it all came together in the end, despite Saturday’s record low temperature (about -10 with the windchill!), Mardi Gras revelers appeared in droves and helped raise a bunch of money for our partner, the Vermont Foodbank.

Hit us up on Facebook to check out pictures from the weekend’s festivities, and be sure to block off some time in early March 2018 for the 23rd year of Magic Hat Mardi Gras!

Sam Adams Newsletter

Hey Badassbeer!

I’m Jim, the brewing manager at the Boston Brewery. My to-do list varies every day, from propagating yeast for a brew, to running tests in the lab, to developing new recipes and performing quality evaluations, and sometimes operating our brewhouse equipment. But in my career as a brewer I’ve done every task imaginable. While I was in grad school for chemical engineering I began volunteering at a local brewery, where I helped on the bottling line – mostly in place of doing my research project. I received my master’s degree, but instead of staying for a Ph.D., I got an entry level job at a brewery and never looked back. This can be a difficult industry to start out in, with long hours and physically demanding work, but if you stick with it, you never know where you will end up! Working in the craft brewing industry is rewarding in so many ways, and there are great opportunities everywhere you look. One of the best parts of my job is getting to see the entire brew process through, from creating the recipe all the way to seeing our tour guests tasting the final product. But if you’re not able to make it to the brewery, crack a bottle of your favorite Sam Adams and read on for everything we’re up to this month.


We are once again proud to be the official beer sponsor of the Boston Marathon. When
Jim Koch, founder and brewer of Samuel Adams, released his first batch of Samuel Adams Boston Lager to the public, it was on Patriots’ Day (the day of the Boston Marathon) in 1985, right here in Boston. As if the city needs another reason to take pride in this heralded event, the alliance of two of Boston’s most recognized and beloved organizations makes the marathon even more special.

Available for a very limited time leading up to Marathon Monday, Samuel Adams Boston 26.2 Brew will be on draft only at race-related events, the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery, pubs and restaurants along the marathon route, and a limited number of pubs and restaurants throughout New England. Visit our website to learn more about this special beer, and check out our beer finder to find it near you!

Cheers to runners, spectators, and Bostonians celebrating the 121st Boston Marathon!


LongShot American Homebrew Competition
For 20 years, Samuel Adams has searched coast to coast for the country’s best homebrews in our annual LongShot American Homebrew Contest. This month, the competition comes full circle with the release of the LongShot Variety Pack. This 6-pack includes two bottles each of our winners’ beers, which will also be available in limited draft. Join us in raising a toast to the winning brews:

This mixed-fermentation American wild ale leads with an aroma of stone fruits and spice. Apricots impart a dry, sweet flavor that leads to a pleasant, lingering tartness.

This saison blends a soft malt character from white wheat with delicate floral notes of English hops, and finishes with a hint of pepper from Belgian yeast.

This Imperial Stout is aged on cocoa nibs and its decadent flavors of chocolate, espresso, and hints of raisins, lead to a lingering sweetness to finish.

26.2 BREW



This deep golden Gose style ale is as exceptional as the athletes that run the Boston Marathon. A blend of malted and unmalted wheat creates light cereal notes, while Saaz Noble hops contribute a crisp, citrusy character. Salt and coriander, traditional ingredients in this style, add a subtle peppery spice that gives way to a clean finish, accented by notes of soft fruit and zesty citrus. This light-bodied, limited release brew is a refreshing, delicious choice whether you’re pounding the pavement or cheering from the sidelines.

Our Boston Lager Apricot-Mustard Glaze is a flavorful glaze for both pork and poultry dishes, and is perfect for any springtime occasion. The fiery heat of an English mustard contrasts the sweet flavor of the apricot preserves and is rounded out by the well-balanced malt notes of Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Pour this seasonal glaze over a roast at the beginning of the cooking, and the flavor will continue developing as it cooks down and mixes with leftover juices in the pan. We like to pair this with – what else – Boston Lager, but try it with Fresh as Helles for a festive seasonal twist!

Whisk together all ingredients. Season to taste.


  • ½ Cup Samuel Adams Boston Lager
  • ½ Cup Apricot Preserves
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly Ground White Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ⅓ Cup English Mustard
  • Salt, to taste
