Stone Brewing Releases the Bastards
WARNING: The Bastards have arrived. As the curator of two overly-aggressive, unapologetic beers, it’s necessary, nay an obligation, to warn the populace that today, Double Bastard Ale and Lukcy Basartd Ale are making their way across the U.S.
Double Bastard Ale was first released November 1998 and debuted as the amped-up evil uncle of the already aggressive Arrogant Bastard Ale. The bottle warns, “Double Bastard Ale is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the Worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk.” It goes on, “This is one lacerative muther of an ale.” Since 1998, Double Bastard Ale has been released once a year to worthy individuals seeking its company.
Released November 2010, Lukcy Basartd Ale was created to celebrate arrogance and the (lucky) 13th anniversary of Arrogant Bastard Ale. Lukcy Basartd Ale is a blend of all the Bastard beers – Arrogant Bastard Ale, Double Bastard Ale, and OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale, combined unceremoniously in the fermenter and dry hopped to the hilt. As the label reads: “Oepn yuor mind. Use a craobwr if you msut. Few pessoss the ruiereqd isinght or edtph of piversceptve to crdiet the Liuqid Arorgnace for initatgsing the rlveoituon in tsate that it has.”
You’ve been warned.
