Last Friday I volunteered at the Buffalo BrewFest and my good buddy Deron was able to hook me up with a job pouring beer for Stone. We were offering Arrogant Bastard Ale, Smoked Porter and a little bit of the Sublimely Self-Righteous, their awesome Black IPA.
Dennis from the brewery was great and we had a whole lot of fun at the event. If I’d been given a nickel for every bad Arrogant Bastard joke I’d heard during the four hours I was pouring, I could have quit my job by now (“I’d like my husband in a glass please” was popular with the ladies) but the best part was talking to the people who came over to gush about how much they love Stone’s beers. One guy told us he was really dedicated, so we asked him to prove and he did. He took his shirt right off and showed us this monster tattoo. He wasn’t lying.
Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t the only Arrogant Bastard gargoyle tattoo we saw that day. Talk about excellent branding.
