Arrogant Bastard
 
Ok, I consider myself to be a connoisseur, if you will, of beer. I've tried all the Ales, you know, Barley Wine, Belgian Ale, Brown Ale, Dark Ale (my favorite), Kolsch, Mild, Pale Ale, Wheat Beer, Old Ale... Hell, I love Lagers... Bock, Dunkel Lager, Schwarsbeir, Kellerbeir... And I love them all! That is up until tiny and I were at the beach the other day.

Enter the Arrogant Bastard!

See, I love to try micro brews and home brews and such, as well as the smaller, little known beers and have a habit of falling for the kitschy names... Like Bare Knuckle Stout for instance...

So tiny and I stopped in for a beer at a beach front beer garden... Being the responsible one, she always gets a Coke cuz she's driving. They had this beer on tap called "Arrogant Bastard". So, I ordered one. Jesus H. Jumpin' Cripes! This shit tasted like the bottom of a cleaning lady's bucket. It almost tasted like it had pickling spices in it.

I went to their website. The front page makes you agree to not being a "fizzy yellow beer drinking ninny" and the second page states: "You probably won't like it because you lack the taste and sophistication to be able to appreciate a beer of this quality and depth". That's mighty big talk. Sounds to me that they know their beer is CRAP and need to compensate for it!

Listen, if you can drink and like STOUT or EXTRA STOUT beer as I do, you should have no problem with the rest. That is of course unless said beer is nothing more than liquefied turds. Something happened that day that has NEVER happened before in my life... I got up and left more than half of a beer in the glass to die. Although, I think it had started to decay way before I got it.

And BTW, their website pisses me off. I may be unsophisticated, that's a given, I Irish for christ's sake, but I do know what taste is and this beer sure has it, that is if you like a beer that tastes of a dead Yaks stomach contents!

So to the makers of Arrogant Bastard... You can keep your fluid (not even gonna compare this shit to real beer) which tastes of axle grease... I'm gonna go have one of those beers you consider to be pussified and pour me a nice warm Guinness Extra Stout! :flipoff:

HAHAHAHAH! Well, the website says it's an acquired taste... Yeah, could acquire the taste for it only after I become a zombie and crave human brains for lunch.

And I found out that it's brewed here in San Diego... Well, obviously the makers have never left their hemp smoke laden garage long enough to experience a real beer and, sadly, have no idea what beer should taste like.

Guinness... It's not just for breakfast anymore! :D

Guinness for breakfast? not for me...I'd rather have a Black & Tan for breakfast.

I like Guinness for Brunch!

Cain, I'm not sure, but it sounds like you finally found a beer that you didn't like. Who would have thought? An Irishman like yourself not likin' beer. Imagine that....

My real question is:

How do you know what (a) the bottom of a cleaning lady's bucket, (b) liquefied turds, (c) a dead Yaks stomach contents, and (d) axle grease, taste like? (wait, never mind (d), I know what axle grease tastes like...) I know you are a worldly man and all, so there must be some pretty good stories to go along with these comments. :D

It's wonderful wrapped in bacon on a toothpick and grill......

Um, wait, no! No, I've never tasted it. That would be wrong! Very, very wrong! I would never, never eat human brains (again...) Wait, no, I thought you said "Hunan Brains" yeah, that's it, Hunan brains. you know, like they serve at the Hunan Garden chineese restraunt.... Yeah, that's it, Hunan brains, not human brains.... human brains would be yucky! Yeah, very very yucky.... (unless they have that sauce on them..... and are wrapped in bacon....)

Oh man, we haven't eaten (hunan or human brains) at the Hunan Garden Chinese Restaurant since they got that big letter "B" from the health department!

I don't know about human brains but monkey brains was a high dollar item at the better restaurants in in the phillipines, live and trussed up inside a holder like you use for over a bunsen burner only with 4 legs. They crack the skull and peel it then serve it at the table... sometimes they get sloppy and don't truss them tight enough and they wiggle under the wrappings... very annoying having you food move....

As for arrogant bastard, I've always believed if you package it correctly, target the correct crowd you could sell feces in a burrito wrap using a really strong cheese and SOMEONE would buy it...

Hmm, reminds me, have to go saute those scallops and shrimp for the barby tonight...

Ok, that right there is just gross....... If this were a different thread, you would be banned for it.

IslandTJ 07-30-2008 06:20 PM

It's okay...



<-----This is better!

Cain, Arrogant Bastard is actually for cleaning toilets my friend. Truly nasty stuff. You ever tried anything out of the Rogue Brewery? I think they are out of Oregon. They make some nasty stuff too and it comes in 22 ounce bottles. Things like Yellow Snow, Chocolate stout. YEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo

02Prove 07-30-2008 11:04 PM

I too have been unfortunate enough to have a taste of Arrogant Bastard. Not at all something I wish to try again. I bought it for the novelty of the name and to this day I am sorry I did.

Now I drink bourbonz and lay off the ale all together for the most part.

spanky 07-30-2008 11:27 PM

ive had some "local house" brews before that totally tasted like ass. (yes i know what ass tastes like) i purposely left it there undrank so they know that i didnt like it..... errr .. HATED IT! and asked for something else that didnt remind me of tasting ass. needless to say weve never been back to those places. yuk

if you cant brew a beer, what makes you think im gonna eat your food!

somebody quote that!

Talk to him once in person and you'll never miss the part about him being Irish again..... Now I read all his posts with an Irish accent for fauks sake..... now yew jus go bugger off ya baahstard......

However, that being said, it still doesn't answer the questions does it Cain? Nice job of sidestepping...:D

njatrtljp 07-31-2008 08:27 AM

I used to work at a liquor store in Ohio and that stuff actually sold very well. there were people that would come in and buy it over and over. Tried it once and it is not my beer of choice.

Cain if you think that one is bad you should try "Old Leg Humper" by Thirsty Dog brewery. That beer (using that word loosely) is truely the worst beer I have ever had!!!!!

After you ruin your tastebuds with that I would try Devil Dancer by Founders Brewing (13% ABV), or Oberon and Two Hearted Ale by Bell's Brewery. If Bell's is out there.

Oh man, I totally missed this one Unlimited. :redface:
And I can answer the questions without really having to tell a story... I was in the Army... The things (other than axle grease) listed were on the menu in the DFAC (chow hall). :D

I saw that one of the "Faces of Death" movies. That was really messed up what they did to that poor monkey.

Jack - I agree, I tried Rogue beer and it's worse than paint thinner.
