We all know the world is going to end on December 21. The question is how you’re going to go out. Some might pray or spend time with loved ones, but haven’t you done enough of that already? I mean, honestly.

For those seeking a more spiritual vehicle toward Armageddon, Stone Brewing Co. has created the Enjoy By 12.21.12 IPA.

 The third edition of Stone Brewing Co.’s Enjoy By series, 12.21.12 IPA exists on a strict 35-day cycle.

The third edition of the Enjoy By series, the 12.21.12 IPA exists on a strict 35-day cycle. This means that Stone shipped the brew on November 16 and it will be available only until December 21 — because the world is ending.

But even if the world doesn’t disappear into a black hole (it will) or get engulfed by an ocean of flame (all but certain), Stone is still taking all of the remaining beers back.

The real trick to 12.21.12 IPA is the hops. It boasts 11 different hops for some serious bitterness. Checking in at 9.4 percent ABV, 12.21.12 might ensure that you don’t even remember the apocalypse the next morning, which is good, because the world is ending.

Enjoy By 12.21.12 IPA is available at Spec’s, Central Market, Whole Foods, Total Wine & More, but if you’re looking to go down with your drunk ones, Old Monk, Capitol Pub, Union Bear, Meddlesome Moth and Flying Saucer are serving it up.

Go enjoy it. While you still can …
