Greg Koch from Stone Brewing and Jamie Floyd from Ninkasi Brewing will both be in attendance at The Bier Stein in Eugene on January 6, 2012 from 7-9PM for the release of “More Brown Than Black.” The beer is a dark hoppy collaboration from Stone (Escondido, CA), Ninkasi (Eugene, OR), and the Alchemist Brewpub (Waterbury, VT). The beer, Stone’s fifth collaboration brew of the year, is a benefit for The Alchemist, which was devastated by the effects of Hurricane Irene earlier this year.
