Get Ready 'Cause This Bastard's
Got Some Serious Wood!

The Evolution is good. Things change and often change for the better. This year our Arrogant Bastard Ale has changed…more like metamorphasized... into a whole new creation: Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale! What was once an experiment quickly became a cult classic…now it's here for YOU!

The twist (we always have a twist don't we) is that it will only be available in the coolest of all packaging: The 3Litre bottle (and a limited number of kegs)! That’s right, this year’s 3Litre Arrogant Bastard Ale bottle will be filled with Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale!

Be sure to check out our website for updates on locations, release dates, and other important info like the all-important first growler fill. Remember, this beer has serious wood…just ask your Mom!

Double Your Double,
Bastard Your Bastard...
In More Ways Than One.

We get more emails about a certain Special Release of ours than any other... you could say we get Double the amount. However, the wait, the longing, the yearning…that anticipation…is almost over. The 2004 Double Bastard Ale is around the corner!

Don't ask to be pinched, you're not dreaming. But when you taste this lacerative mutha of a beer, you'll be knocked into dreamland! This malt & hop monster is not for the timid however, so beware.

Once again we will be offering the 2004 Double Bastard Ale in limited 22oz bottles and 3Litre bottles which will be hitting the shelves the first week of November. That means all the hoarders, collectors, and stockpilers out there had better start clearing room in the 'fridge or cellar!

As always, turn to our website for more info on locations, release dates and more...

Double Your Wardrobe & Glass Collection:
New Double Bastard Ale &
OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale Gear.

Here's the scenario... you're out for a bike ride and you're wearing the brand new Double Bastard Ale cycling jersey. You get all kinds of looks on the road, and you're feeling good. You shower, then throw on the brand new Double Bastard Ale T-shirt... still feelin' good. You grab that book you've been meaning to read, retire to the backyard and prepare to indulge. The crown comes off and the 2004 Double Bastard Ale pours slowly into the new tumbler-style Double Bastard Ale specialty glass... life is good.

To celebrate the inaugural release of OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale, we came up with a new guys T-shirt and a new Girly Shirt. While the addition of oak chips to Arrogant Bastard Ale adds subtle flavors of vanilla, the shirts that honor the 2004 OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale are anything but subtle... and that's all we have to say about that.

Check out the Stone Online Giftshop for more details on these new items and many more ways you can proclaim your Arrogance!
