Stone Releases Its Latest Illegitimate Children: Lukcy Basartd and Double Bastard Ales (2012)

Lukcy Basartd and Double Bastard Ales (2012)

On Monday, while the American east coast was being slammed by Hurricane Sandy, Southern California’s Stone Brewing Co. released the 2012 versions of its Lukcy Bastard and Double Bastard ales.

Lukcy Basartd is one of my favorite Stone beers, and it’s a unique blend of three other Stone creations. From Stone:

The trmiraivute of Arorgnat Basartd Ale, OEKAD Arorgnat Basartd Ale and Dbolue Basartd Ale are all in paly in this cvueé de Basartd you now hlod, and wihle it is idneed a Lukcy Basartd, lcuk had ntohing to do wtih it.

Translation:

The triumvirate of Arrogant Bastard Ale, Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale and Double Bastard Ale are all in play in this cuvée de Bastard you now hold, and while it is indeed a Lucky Bastard, luck had nothing to do with it.

Lukcy Basartd has an ABV of 8.5%, and it is available in 22-ounce bomber bottles and on draft.

Double Bastard is extremely hoppy American strong ale with a 10.5% ABV. It’s available in bomber bottles, on draft and in big-ass three-liter bottles that can be refilled at Stone’s brewery. (Stone also makes a Double Bastard habanero hot sauce that’s no joke.)

More details on all of Stone’s Bastard ales are available on ArrogantBastard.com.

Best. Bottle Cap. Ever: Stone’s ‘Hated by Many, Loved by Few’ Cap

Stone Brewing Co. Hated by Many, Loved by Few bottle cap

Whenever I’m having a particularly bad day or blog trolls start wearing on me, I glance over at my Stone Brewing Co. “Hated by Many, Loved by Few” bottle cap and smile. The cap, which I got from one of Stone’s Bastard brews—I can’t remember if it was an Arrogant Bastard Ale, an Oaked Arrogant Bastard or a Double Bastard—has been hanging from a thumb tack near my office desk for a couple of years now. And it always reminds me, in times of doubt, that it’s okay to go against the grain and write what other people don’t necessarily want to hear, as long as it’s accurate and/or what you truly believe.

On that note: Fuck you, haters.
