Double Bastard Ale and Southern Charred Unleashed Nationwide
Monday, November 04, 2013
It's a special time of year when a Bastard comes out to play. It's even more special when two Bastards come out from hiding and treat fans to a taste of what it is to be Worthy. Today, Double Bastard Ale and a barrel-aged version of the beer, Southern Charred, are migrating across the U.S., seeking those that welcome their company.
Double Bastard Ale was first released November 1998 to honor the one-year anniversary of Arrogant Bastard Ale. The beer debuted as the amped-up evil uncle of its already aggressive predecessor. 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.
