Stone Brewing Unleashes Stone Imperial Notorious P.O.G.

Stone Brewing in Escondido, California is answering the fervent demands of its devoted fans by reintroducing an all-time favorite brew, Stone Notorious P.O.G., in a stronger rendition called Stone Imperial Notorious P.O.G. This imperial delight, boasting a robust 8% alcohol by volume (ABV), is an irresistible blend of passion fruit, orange and guava, culminating in a legendary "beermosa" flavor and aroma that has captured the hearts of Stone enthusiasts worldwide.

The roots of this exceptional creation can be traced back to 2016 when the remarkable collaboration between actor and comedian Jonah Ray and Stone brewer Kris Ketcham took place at the esteemed Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station. Being a proud native of Hawaii, Ray's childhood memories revolved around the beloved POG Juice, thus making it an absolute necessity to incorporate those ingredients into their collaborative brew.

“We’ve been experimenting with taking up the ABV on some of our favorite beers,” explained Kris Ketcham, Stone Brewing Senior Manager of Brewing & Innovation. “Stone Notorious P.O.G. stood out because not only does the imperial version taste amazing, you can’t even tell the ABV is higher. We knew our fans would welcome this upgrade to one of their favorites.”

True to its name, this beer gracefully rides on its effervescent waves of zesty orange citrus and tropical notes, providing an effortless sipping experience akin to those cherished lazy Sundays. Its tart, invigorating and citrusy characteristics create a beautiful profile for the taste buds. When it comes to the aroma, expect an enchanting fusion of tropical fruits, citrus and hints of honey. The underlying presence of passion fruit and guava beneath a vibrant burst of orange adds a depth that pays homage to the legendary POG lore, elevating the experience to new heights thanks to the magic of beer.

As part of Stone's lineup of Fan Favorite Re-Brews, Stone Imperial Notorious P.O.G. takes its rightful place among the limited releases chosen by the fans themselves. Embracing its nationwide popularity, this captivating beverage can be savored in convenient 12oz six-pack cans, as well as 22oz bottles exclusively available in Southern California. For those seeking a more communal experience, the beer is also on draft at select locations. To locate this extraordinary libation, simply visit or conveniently order online in eligible states via
