About Double Bastard by Arrogant Consortia

Originally brewed to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Arrogant Bastard Ale, Double Bastard Ale debuted in November 1998 as an amped-up version of that already aggressive beer. A huge malt bill and an unreasonable amount of hops make this ale one that will be appreciated by only a few, and that’s just fine with us. We didn’t brew this dark amber monster to please anyone other than ourselves.


Since being unleashed upon the unsuspecting public in 1997, Arrogant Bastard Ale has challenged fizzy yellow beer drinkers in great numbers with its celebration of intensity. Its quality and depth of flavor was all a fragile world could handle at that time.
