Stone Brewing Co, the California-based craft producer, has re-released a collaboration beer with Guam's Ishii Brewing Co and Japanese brewer Baird, featuring sencha green tea. 

Baird/Ishoo/Stone Japanese Green Tea IPA, with a 10.1% abv, is being released across the US this week in 22-ounce bottles and on draught. The brand is also being made available in Canada, the UK, Japan and Singapore. 

The beer has been dry-hopped twice, first with Aramis, Crystal and Helga, then Sorachi Ace hops and the addition of Japanese green tea, Stone said. 

The beer was first brewed in 2011 after the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. 

Last October, Stone announced plans to build a new US$74m production facility in the US state of Virginia. The firm is also planning a brewery and restaurant in Berlin, Germany, it announced in July.
