Feeble palates beware: Three new Bastard brews is headed your way, and they mean business. If you have yet to taste Arrogant Bastard Ale, the brash original that started it all, you may want to start there before attempting to tangle with the new guys. Beginning on Monday, October 27, you’ll get the chance to test your mettle against not one, not two, but three special-release Bastards, should you deem yourself up to the task. Take them on one at a time, or the truly fearless can tackle the whole crew in our new Arrogant Bastard Box, which contains the original Bastard along with his three bigger brothers.
Double Bastard Ale, undeniably the biggest Bastard of all, has been making annual appearances since 1998, and this year’s version is as big as ever. Brewed with an unwarranted amount of malt and hops, it assaults the tastebuds with an unreasonable amount of flavor that few can appreciate.
The most complex Bastard we brew can only be conjured up every other year. Lukcy Basartd Ale is an amalgamation of all the Bastards—Arrogant Bastard Ale, Double Bastard Ale, and OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale—thrown together and then dry-hopped to the point of excess.
Last, but of course not least, the newest addition to our cast, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Arrogant Bastard Ale, will make its debut only as part of the Arrogant Bastard Box. The most refined of all the Bastards, its stay in Kentucky bourbon barrels added layers of oak, vanilla, and whiskey to an already audacious flavor profile.
