Strong Bitter7.5% ABV

Lightning BreweryPoway, CA

This is our take on the English Extra Special Bitter. This recipe has been brewed largley unchanged for upwards of 25 years while our head brewer was still in graduate school. Our version is hoppier, more malty, and has a higher ABV than its British cousin, but retains a suprising balance and drinkability. A tall cream-colored head tops off this gorgeous dark amber beer.

Stone Brewing Co.Escondido, CA

My arrogance has metamorphosed into a peatier, haughtier, boozier, doubler, more “er” of everything version of itself. Unlike the malted substance, which abetted my materialization, you don’t have chiseled iceberg chunks or fizzy, sugary pop sugar crystals at your disposal to cut me or soften the unbridled intensity of my righteous state that is liquid arrogance. Go ahead. Try me. This Islay whisky barrel-infused ale could put a lion’s mane on a hairless cat.

Those Worthy souls who possess the nerve to try it will be rewarded with a delicious assault on their taste buds.
