Brewer: Stone Brewing
Style: Strong Ale
When Stone released Arrogant Bastard in 1997, the American craft beer scene was a mere and mildly-flavored seedling compared to its current, lip-smacking state. Impressively, Arrogant Bastard has endured with a bold, balanced hops and malt character that still stands with the best beers in the world. "In a category will with strong contenders, Arrogant Bastard, for me, is a perfect cold night sipper," says Michael Roper.
