What are Beer Stones?
That's a good question! Beer Stones are a patented barware accessory for beer. They’re made of pure soapstone and have nucleation sites engraved on them.
The nucleation sites continually release bubbles of carbonation, making beer more smooth and foamy. Most people use Beer Stones at home to make cans and bottles of beer taste more like fresh draft beer.
How do you use them?
Set one in the bottom of your glass, and then pour your beer. Try to pour slowly, so you don’t make too much foam right away.
Can you use Beer Stones more than once?
Yes, Beer Stones are reusable. Simply wash them between uses to keep the engraving clean, and they will last for years to come.
Do I want a head of foam on my beer?
It depends. There are generally two types of beer drinkers.
If you like to drink straight from a bottle or can, then you probably prefer the sharp bite of carbonation in beer, so Beer Stones may not be right for you.
However, if you like to drink draft beer poured into a glass, then you probably prefer a smooth and aromatic beer, so you should enjoy using Beer Stones.
How do you wash Beer Stones?
You can rinse them with tap water right after use. Otherwise hand wash them with soap and a brush, or place them in the dishwasher.
Do they keep the beer cold?
Yes, if you keep Beer Stones in the fridge or freezer, they will help beer stay cold a little longer.
When will my order be shipped?
Most Beer Stones are engraved to order, so depending on demand it takes 2-4 business days for them to be shipped out. During the holidays it can take up to a week. If you ever need an expedited order, let us know and we'll try to ship out the next morning.
Do you accept returns?
Yes, we want you to be 100% satisfied with your Beer Stones. You can return them in the first 30 days for any reason.
What kind of warranty do you offer?
Beer Stones have a 180 day worldwide warranty for reasonable use. Just let us know what happened.
What's the difference between the Olive shape and the Hop shape?
The difference is just aesthetic. Both versions function the same.
The original design was the Olive version. It was simple, beer appropriate, the right size, and provided a great surface for engraving fun designs.
Later the Hop version was added, because some people just plain love hoppy beers. It was also similar in shape and size, so the two shapes looked like a natural pair. The Hop has become the best selling design!
Do you have any patents?
Yes, Beer Stones were granted patent 10,477,997!
