Time to start talking about Stone 09.09.09 Vertical Epic.

Staying true to the series, this year’s batch also comes packed with some unique, mouth-watering ingredients." Like tangerine peel, vanilla beans, chocolate malt, and French oak. Hits the shelves in 29 days.

When a pub in England gets banned from selling alcohol due to rowdiness what should it do? Probably not give drinks away. Pub offering free drinks shut by police. Bonus quote: "Beat managers, patrol staff and special constables from across Mid Devon, together with officers from Exeter and two police dog units from North Devon were deployed to ensure that the premises closed."
