Original Grain, a renowned watchmaker celebrated for its craftsmanship and sustainability commitment, is proud to announce a unique collaboration with Stone Brewing, a world-renowned craft brewery. Together, they unveil an exceptional watch collection inspired by the essence of Stone’s legendary beers and distinctive branding. Discover the Stone Brewing Watch Collection, available for purchase at www.originalgrain.com, with watches starting at $349.
Ryan Beltran, Co-founder of Original Grain, expresses his enthusiasm for this collaboration, stating:
“As a fellow San Diego company, we are honored to be working with Stone’s iconic brand to bring the same level of quality and consistency into our watch collection. By partnering to use Stone’s authentic reclaimed beer barrels, this collection is the epitome of sustainability in watchmaking.”
The watches in this collection draw inspiration from Stone’s symbolic Gargoyle, a guardian of high-quality beer. Now, as “Guardians of the Craft,” these collaborative timepieces symbolize the protection against inferior beer and unpleasant moments.
The flagship piece, The Gargoyle Chronograph 44mm, is meticulously crafted from oxidized steel and charred oak wood, mirroring the materials used in Stone’s brewing process.
The West Coast Chronograph 44mm proudly features Stone’s iconic West Coast IPA branding.
The Amber Ale Barrel 46mm showcases the Gargoyle through Amber Tinted Sapphire Crystal.
The crowning jewel of the collection is the Limited-Edition Arrogant Bastard Automatic. With only 250 pieces available, this bold watch is destined to be cherished by diehard craft beer aficionados. Fashioned from real reclaimed materials used in Stone’s brewing process, Original Grain’s watches not only tell time but also narrate the tale of innovative and revolutionary craft brewing.
Erin Smith, Stone Brewing Sr. VP of Marketing, notes, “The Stone Brewing Gargoyle has become symbolic of that go-your-own-way spirit that lives in so many of us, and it’s captured beautifully in these watches. Of course, there’s only one way to wear these timepieces, and it’s with a Stone beer in hand.”
This partnership between Original Grain and Stone Brewing is sure to captivate craft beer enthusiasts and watch collectors alike. It promises to be a sought-after Christmas gift in 2023. For more information, please visit originalgrain.com or follow the brand on Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.
