Burning Trinity of Hot Sauces
Introduced in 1997, Arrogant Bastard Ale immediately developed a following among "those who know" (a.k.a. "the Worthy"). Arrogant Bastard Ale is an aggressive beer and not for the timid or weak. As such, it demands pairing with food that takes the same stance. So when our similarly (and appropriately) arrogant friends at Carlsbad Gourmet approached us to collaborate on a hot sauce recipe made with Arrogant Bastard, not only did we say yes - we said, "Let's make three!"
All these hot sauces are brewed, stewed and bottled on the edge of the Pacific Ocean - just a few short miles from our brewery. Only in such close proximity could we trust anyone to make these astounding sauces with our trio of black sheep ales. We keep a careful watch on them. And on you --- we are watching you now --- don't let yourself down, and do NOT let us down.
This is the Bastard Trinity. They shall deliver you from mediocrity, whether you want it or not.
Arrogant Bastard Ale: Jalapeño Heat
Few are Worthy of this sauce. Its distinct burning flavor is certainly beyond the tolerance of most. Beyond you? That is for you to decide. The matriculated will appreciate its flavor and depth. The informed will understand its craftsmanship. Curiously, while the flavor is most certainly suggestive of the fiery depths, simply combine with your favorite food and an Arrogant Bastard Ale, and you might swear you were in heaven.
OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale: Chipotle
OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale is a truly unique beer. All the aggressive palate-punishing flavor of the original Arrogant Bastard Ale, but with American oak wood chips added in the brewing process, resulting in unique flavors and aromas of vanilla and molasses. Combining it with the roasty distinctiveness of chipotle peppers creates a hot sauce as unique as the beer.
Double Bastard Ale: Double Burn Habañero
A sauce almost as big as the beer that's in it - ALMOST. Merciful beings that we are, we chose to utilize none other than habañeros to dilute it. If you're tasting this hot sauce as you read this, you either love habañeros or you just lost a bet. (Not yet personally familiar with habañeros? No matter, it's a s-h-o-r-t learning curve.) Double Bastard Ale Double Burn Habañero is a surprisingly well-balanced hot sauce to those fire eaters who love habañeros, and a singular pain to those who are unworthy.
