This is an aggressive ale. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory–maybe something with a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it’s made in a little brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless fizzy yellow beverage will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multi-million dollar ad campaigns make things taste better. Perhaps you’re mouthing your words as you read this.

At Stone Brewing, we believe that pandering to the lowest common denominator represents the height of tyranny - a virtual form of keeping the consumer barefoot and stupid. Brought forth upon an unsuspecting public in 1997, Arrogant Bastard Ale openly challenged the tyrannical overlords who were brazenly attempting to keep Americans chained in the shackles of poor taste. As the progenitor of its style, Arrogant Bastard Ale has reveled in its unprecedented and uncompromising celebration of intensity. There have been many nods to Arrogant Bastard Ale…even outright attempts to copy it… but only one can ever embody the true nature of liquid Arrogance!

This is a beer that I used to be crazy about around 2009 when I was first really discovering craft beer. It's been awhile since I've had it, and its quite an experience to have this assault of taste again. This isn't the friendliest beer made, or at least made by Stone. It's a beer you you will either love or just wanted to throw down the pint glass and run away.

This is a beer for a person that wants an assault on their palate, not some fancy adventure of flavors. Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale is beer that I love to revisit every now and then because it's one of the first craft beers that just impressed me with it's presentation and taste.
