This week, Stone Brewing Co. releases its final collaboration beer of 2012, teaming with Denmark’s Evil Twin Brewing and Batimore’s Stillwater Artisinal Ales on a black saison called “The Perfect Crime.” Brewmaster Mitch Steele claims the ale just barely qualifies as a saison due to its Belgian saison yeast, while also bearing the dark and dusky character of its newly introduced oak-smoked wheat malt. The 6.8% brew was just released yesterday across the country in a limited batch of twelve-ounce bottles and can also be found on-draft if you know where to look. The brewery also issued a rather lo-fi, noir-style short film to accompany its release, which you can see below, while if you want to find the brew, several Whole Foods and BevMo locations in L.A. will be carrying it in bottle, and Blue Palms and Steingarten will have it on draft.
