#626 Stone’s Lukcy Basartd Ale

Last night (12/11/2015) I tired another brew from the beer stockpile (you can see post #618 for more info on beer stockpile). This was Stone’s Lukcy Basartd Ale, an 8.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) beer brewed and bottled by the Stone Brewing Company located in Escondido, California, USA. Stone’s 2014 version of Lukcy Basartd (first released in 2010) was a dry hopped blend of Arrogant Bastard Ale, Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale and Double Bastard Ale to celebrate the 17th anniversary of Arrogant Bastard Ale.

Stone’s Lukcy Basartd Ale came in the 2014 Arrogant Bastard Box from Habersham Beverage in Savannah, Georgia, USA along with Arrogant Bastard Ale, Double Bastard Ale, and Bourbon Barrel-Aged Arrogant Bastard Ale (all in 22 oz bottles). The hop varieties and IBUs are listed as classified at ArrogantBastard.com. Both Beeradvocate and ratebeer list Stone’s Lukcy Basartd Ale as an American Strong Ale. UNTAPPED agrees, listing Lukcy Basartd as a Strong Ale – American on their website.
