Stone & Wood’s Counter Culture has released a Honey Toasted Hazy IPA called The Holy Grain with a nod to comical kingdoms as the range’s tenth limited release.

Counter Culture

Launched in March 2019, the Counter Culture beers will release a new brew every 10 weeks or so, after which they’ll disappear. The range will also feature recipes never tried at Stone & Wood, as well as popular Pilot Batch beers from the past, collaboration brews and beer inspired by the broader brewing community.

The Holy Grain – The Beer

The sacred quest is complete.

Counter Culture’s Honey Toasted Hazy IPA The Holy Grain has delicate layers of honey, vanilla and toasted coconut added to a rolled oat, wheat and pale malt backbone, balanced by Sabro, Galaxy, Citra and HBC472 hops for a velvety and wholesome finish.
