Founded in 1996, Stone Brewing Co. has unleashed a demand for
over-the-top beers. Their flagship, Arrogant Bastard Ale, challenged us
pick up a bottle and drink it, kicking off a cult-like following of the
beer and the brewery.
For their 12th Anniversary, Head Brewer Mitch Steele and the Stone Brew
Crew worked with homebrew recipes from Brewhouse Supervisor Jeremy
Moynier and Distribution Supervisor Jake Ratzke to create this huge
oatmeal stout, but instead of relying on just hops for the bitterness he
added some cacao to the boil kettle. The result is simply amazing! We
first had this beer at the shop and thought, "We have to have this
recipe"! Mitch and Greg must have felt the same way about this beer that
we did and handed it over.
Stone Brewing Co. is located in Escondido, Ca, so next time you are
in Southern California, make it a point to stop by. They have a
fantastic restaurant as well, using locally-grown food and a focus on
quality. Learn more at www.stonebrew.com
Like we said, this beer is huge - with over 21 pounds of grains in it,
there is only one question we have for you ... is your mash tun worthy?
