Although Stone currently exports a small amount of their brews, a production facility in Europe would make a lot more sense. According to this article by Clay Risen on TheAtlantic.com, having an on-site facility would reduce the carbon footprint, help keep brews from being exposed to heat and light, and lower costs for the brewery and European customers! Cheers to Stone Brewing Co. for giving this a shot – we’re all pulling for you and hoping to hear news of a European production facility opening soon. [techtags:STONE BREWING, CRAFT BEER]
