Stone Brewing Co. has some of the most effective marketing I’ve ever seen. These guys make some of the strongest, tastiest, and most complex beers I’ve ever had, and any company who releases a beer called Arrogant Bastard Ale has to stand behind their brews pretty confidently. Well if you’re a fan of Stone Brewing Co. and you live anywhere near their headquarters in Escondido, CA, we’ve got an event for you

According to the company’s website, President and Brewmaster Steve Wagner and “Dr.” Bill Sysak will be hosting a beer and cigar dinner on July 12. Tickets have not yet gone on sale and there’s no information yet on the menu, but I can only imagine some of the pairings, considering they just released the first in a series of beers that are meant to be enjoyed with a fine smoke.

The event takes place on their outdoor patio from 6:30 p.m. To 9:00 p.m. on July 12, and will feature stogies, craft brews, and “utterly amazing food,” as the event page puts it. If I were anywhere closer to the west coast than Kingston, NY, I’d be there in a heartbeat, but for now I can only wish we had events like that on this side of the country.

Anyway, if you live near Escondido, CA and you’re a cigar and beer fan, which I imagine many of our readers are, you’ll be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t attend this event.
