The legendary New Jersey club that helped launch the careers of rock stars like Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi has something new brewing.
The Stone Pony is celebrating its 45th anniversary by partnering with the nearby Asbury Park Brewery on a limited release craft beer.
Called The Stony Pony Forty-Five, the lager has “a complex malt body complimented by a hop profile offering notes of citrus and pine,” according to a release. It has a fruit aroma and subtle bitterness.
“We collectively chose a traditional American lager — inspired by the most popular style of beer when The Stony Pony opened their doors and added a modern twist,” Jeff Plate, founder of Asbury Park Brewery and a former musician, said in a statement. “The result is an American lager, dry hopped with a few different hop varieties, one being a Saphir hop to commemorate the sapphire symbolism of the 45th anniversary.”
Starting Feb. 15, cans will be sold at Asbury Park boardwalk properties to coincide with the Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes concert at The Stone Pony. The limited-release brew will be available until December or until supplies last.
