Stone is kicking off November the way every brewery should – with the seasonal release of their 10.5% alc/vol Double Bastard Ale! Recognized as Stone’s most anticipated seasonal brew year after year, Double Bastard has been known to sell out in liquor stores within hours of its release.
Now, if you familiar with Stone’s Arrogant Bastard Ale (7.2% alc/vol; available year round), you are probably wondering how they could make a “double” of perhaps the most notoriously strong ale in the world. Well, unfortunately Stone keeps both of these specialty recipes a secret, but with 22oz bottles of Double Bastard available for the next couple months, we think we’ll find a way to forgive them for that!
