Well, this is interesting.
We carried the Stone Brewing Co. "Wussie Pils" a few months back just when the San Antonio temperatures were starting to make us sweat and many of our staff likened it to the Topo Chico of beer. It's amazing, crisp, refreshing, and best of all, pleasing to people who don't want hoppy beer... yet it's from Stone Brewing Co.
Crazy, right? Stone Brewing Co. is known for amazingly hoppy beer. Who would have thought?
Anyway, we became instant fans of this beer. We drank it up and recommended it to our thirsty San Antonio craft beer drinking friends and non-craft beer drinking friends alike.
Cut to present day. What with this record-setting heatwave and all, we thought it would be fun to tap another keg for something to knock back in a moderate ABV range (5.8%) that would appeal to a wide range of beer drinkers, including the nerdier beer drinkers in our midst and the non-nerdy beer drinkers, too..
And then I Googled "Stone Wussie Pils" to write this post and realized that they're calling it "Arrogant Brewing" now. And the full name is, "Who You Callin' Wussie Pils".
I'm not sure if it's just a fun marketing campaign or not, but it seems that the Arrogant Bastard himself is claiming to be brewing a lineup of beers that includes the Arrogant Bastard Ale, the bourbon barrel aged Arrogant Bastard, and this pilsner.
It's interesting, a little confusing, and not really that important at this exact moment in time because the beer is pretty thirst-quenching and it's been another hot San Antonio day.
