Andrew: September 13 is our wedding anniversary. When I heard that Stone’s next Enjoy By batch would be 9/13/13, and that it would be distributed in New York, I knew I had to get this beer to enjoy on 9/13/13, our 4th anniversary. (You can find out about the next batch here.)

Enjoy By is one of my favorite Imperial IPAs. It’s got a ton of different hops that make it really complex. It’s super citrusy, piney, and it has a sort of garlicky, onion-y character, which is apparently imparted by the Summit hops.

The anniversary drinks: I had Enjoy By and my wife had Veuve

My wife isn’t a beer fan, so she had some Veuve. She had a sip of the Enjoy By and said it smelled really good but tasted like medicine. Yeah, not a beer fan.

To go with the drinks, I made some grassfed New York Strip steaks (cooked perfectly medium rare thanks to Alton Brown 🙂 ), sauteed onions and mash. It was a great evening.

    • This is what I’ve suggested she give a shot. I think she might try some sours soon we actually have a Sour in the Rye that I’ve been saving for a special occasion. I might start her on a less-sour beer though to see what she thinks. Maybe Crooked Stave St. Bretta Summer or Vielle. And thanks for the congrats! And congrats to you and your wife:)
