The Arrogance Arrives at Actual Brewing

Each ‘adoptive’ brewery of Arrogant Bastard Ale is entrusted
to ‘foster’ the sacred recipe to brew a single, limited batch of
the Liquid Arrogance to be served on draft in their taproom for
on-site imbibing only, with proceeds going to charity.

"We were installing a gas chromatograph in the beer analysis lab in our garage when it dawned on us that we'd really taken this homebrewing thing too far. When you get to that point, you might as well actually brew. Since then, with the help of a lot of hard-working friends and the fiercely supportive craft beer community in Columbus, we've created an industrial warehouse fortress where we get to make the beer we believe in, do all the weird science we want, and have late night dance parties with cats. It's the American dream, you guys. And since we're just a bunch of humble bastards, we're especially thrilled to find an Arrogant Bastard in our midst. Maybe he'll teach us some dance moves."

"A few months after my 21st birthday, feeling that it was his duty to impart a valuable lesson to his only son, my dad went down to the gas station and bought me my first Arrogant Bastard. A 3 liter magnum with a lock on the top. We drank it all, so I don't remember if he imparted any additional lessons, but that one was pretty clear: quality and quantity aren't mutually exclusive."
