Craft brewer Stone & Wood has kicked off a second series of limited edition beers to complement its annual Stone Beer release.

Co-founder Jamie Cook told TheShout that a further expansion of brewing capacity enabled Stone & Wood to add the Garden Ale series as a limited edition summer release that will showcase different ingredients each year.

"Before they discovered the hop plant, brewers would raid their garden looking for ingredients to flavour their beer," Stone & Wood said.

"As a tribute to this tradition, our Garden Ale is brewed by adding juniper berries to the boiling wort from pale and crystal malts." 

"Dry hopped with Ella and Summer, a couple of new world hop varieties from the Australian hop gardens, Garden Ale has an easy bitterness with a subtle ribbon of floral aroma and a spicy finish."

The Garden Ale will be available only at select bars and bottleshops.
