Beer Geek Nation presents San Diego Beer Vlog: Stone Bastard In The Rye (Arrogant Bastard Aged in Templeton Rye Barrels) Video Beer Review

How do you up the overly healthy haughtiness of an already Arrogant Bastard? Stick said bastard in a Templeton Rye whiskey barrel and allow the nectar and woodiness trapped within it to take that strong ale to places as of yet uncharted. Read More »

2012 Double Bastard Ale aged in Bourbon Barrels Arrogant Bastard Ale’s (really) big brother, this dark amber ale is brewed with a huge malt bill and a belligerent amount of hops. It’s a heavy, bitter beast of a beer and absolutely not for the timid. Beer geek nation craft beer reviews Read More »

Stone Brewing Video Tour (Including the Hop Locker!) | Beer Geek Nation Beer Reviews

Big thanks to Ken and Jessica for setting this up for us! Cheers Read More »

Stone Double Bastard (2011 Batch) | Beer Geek Nation Beer Reviews Episode 256

This is a lacerative muther of a beer. The evil big brother of Arrogant Bastard Ale. It is strongly suggested you stay far, far away from this beer. Those foolish enough to venture close enough to taste will experience a punishingly unforgiving assault on the palate. ’Course there’s always the masochists… Note: 2007 – 10%, 2008 & 2009 – 10.5%, 2010 – 11.2%.

That is, ‘once only’ unless we decide to make it again. Read More »

Stone Brewing Vertical Epic Ale 10.10.10| Beer Geek Nation Video Beer Reviews Episode 105

This ninth edition of our Stone Vertical Epic Ale series takes two interesting left turns. A Belgian-style golden triple is the starting point of this beer, but the first left turn is nearly immediate with the addition of dried chamomile flowers, triticale, and Belgian amber candi sugar. The second, and rather unusual left turn takes us half an hour up the road from Stone to Temecula courtesy of the addition of just-pressed Muscat, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from our friends at South Coast Winery. As the Stone Vertical Epic Ale series has moved through the calendar, we found that the brewing schedule for a 10.10.10 release coincided nicely with the grape harvest, neatly providing an interesting twist in this epic ale.
