This cult-favorite has a rich history among Stone’s fans. In 2016 actor and comedian Jonah Ray joined Stone brewer Kris Ketcham for a collaboration brew at the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens — Liberty Station. Ray, a native Hawaiian, grew up on the stuff island childhoods were made of — POG Juice. So the “P,” the “O” and the “G” were mandates for his Stone collaboration beer. Countless passion fruits, oranges and guavas later, the beer’s successive small-batch rebrews continued to be met by clamoring fans. Presumably on Island Time, Stone finally released the beer nationwide in 2019 and an even greater clamoring fanbase was born.

“This beer is dedicated to my homeland, the islands of Hawaii,” explained Ray. “It’s also dedicated to my dad who used to pour a little bit of booze into his PASSION ORANGE GUAVA juice on the weekends. LOOK DAD! I’VE COMBINED THE TWO!”

Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse effortlessly rides its effervescence of tart orange citrus and tropicality with sip-it-like-its-Sunday ease. It’s tart, refreshing, citrusy and spectacular. On the nose: tropical fruits, citrus and honey. Passion fruit and guava flavors are present beneath a bright punch of orange. It’s everything POG lore serves up, but it’s beer, so clearly it’s better. PRESS IMAGES Download Assets
