2002 Edition of Double Bastard Ale Will Be Available About As Long As It Takes You To Read This

San Marcos, CA --- Stone Brewing Co. has now released the 2002 edition of the infamous Double Bastard Ale in both 22oz and mondo-sized 3Litre bottles. Supplies are expected to be available well into the second paragraph of this press release.

"Sure, it not only depends on your level of education and how smart you are --- and thus your reading speed --- but when exactly it was that you started reading this page to begin with," remarked Stone Brewing CEO Greg Koch. "Truth is that it is quite difficult for us to control either of those elements, so we don't even try." Koch figures that you're either ahead of the curve or you're behind. And if, when reading this, it is the first time you are learning about the Double Bastard Ale release then you should pretty much consider yourself in the latter category. Those who visit the Stone Brewing website regularly, or who have signed up for the Stone email Newsletter tend to be in the former category.

At 7.2% alc.vol. and with a massive flavor profile, Arrogant Bastard Ale has often been accurately described as an "angry" beer. At 10% alc.vol. and an even bigger flavor profile, Double Bastard Ale is a bit "more angry" to say the least. "Those looking for more descriptive adjectives are welcome to pay a visit to their local library, said Koch. "We figure most people aren't all that smart and a visit to the library would probably do them some good. Hell, we don't want to have to do ALL the work for them ALL the time…sometimes people just need to figure these things out for themselves."

Nonetheless, laggards and lazybones can learn more about this perplexing subject by visiting the official Double Bastard Ale portion of the Arrogant Bastard Ale website.

Stone Brewing is located at 155 Mata Way in San Marcos, CA and recently made the 2002 edition of the Inc 500, which recognizes the 500 fastest growing companies in America. Arrogant Bastard Ale is currently distributed in 15 states. For more info, go to, or call the brewery at (760) 471-4999.
