The Stone Difference

THE STONE DIFFERENCE

You mean there’s a better way? Why yes, there is. We’ve been taking care of beer like no one else since 1996. That means beer that’s refrigerated 100 percent of the time in storage and during delivery.  We don’t deal in incentives or work on flavors of the month. We don’t cannibalize accounts or brands. We don’t “pay to play.” Just one case is enough to get us to send a truck to your place of business. We’re not sales people; we’re educators.

Delivery Systems


All Drivers Are Certified Beer Servers

Our drivers go through the independent Cicerone Certification Program to learn to handle beer with the utmost care. Proper handling and appreciation of beer means it arrives in the hands of your customers in the pristine condition intended by its brewers.


Biodiesel-Powered Refrigerated Trucks

How cold? Ice cold. Our fleet ensures that the beer we distribute will never be delivered less than cold. We use biodiesel because we aim to minimize our environmental footprint as much as possible. We were the area’s first full fleet of 100-percent-refrigerated trucks for all products, not just kegs.


Refrigerated Warehousing

Cold storage is key to delivering beer of the freshest and highest quality. We have two warehouses, and the amount of cold beer stored in them only keeps growing.
