Arrogant Bastard is Stone. I had one last week. I like it better than their IPA. Too many IPAs today are about the IBU-race. I prefer a well balanced beer and Arrogant Bastard fills that niche quite well. I also picked up another 6-pack of Celebration Ale. Damn is that stuff tasty, I just wish it came in re-usable bottles.

Yup...my mistake in a previous post...edited.

I like their IPA better than just about any other IPA out there.

I'll have to give the Leinenkugel brews a try!

I've got a couple things in the fridge

Allagash Grand Cru
Rogue Imperial IPA
Redhook Sunrye
Stone IPA
Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA
Goose Island Stout
Hop Rod Rye
Harpoon IPA
Heavy Seas' Peg Leg Imperial Stout
Heavy Seas Small Craft Warning Pils
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Sierra Nevada Celebration Alea
Boont Amber Ale
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
Sammy Smith's Lager

There are more that are NOT in the fridge, too. These are in a closet upstairs and I'm too lazy to go look and see what all is there, but I know I have these (and maybe one or two others)

Sierra's Bigfoot Barleywine
Duval
Redhook ESB
Dogfish Head Chickory Stout

-walker

edit: for full disclosure, I have some Coors Light and Bud Light in the fridge, too. This was left over from when my family came down to visit for thanksgiving, but it's not really 'beer' in my eyes so I didn't originally count it.

Currently have:

Stoudt's HefeWeizen
Troegs Mad Elf

Prior to that we went through some Optimator, Troegs Oatmeal Stout and Franziskaner Dunkel. Gotta love the distributor that carries Optimator for $24.

Arrogant Bastard is mighty good, I too prefer it over most IPA's. Although for IPA's lately I've been sticking with Bell's Two Hearted Ale and Three Floyd's Alpha King, both really good without being majorly bitter or overdone.

I think I'm also in a minority in that the celebration ale didn't do much for me... It was good, but to me just tasted like a hopped up SNPA. Good, but didn't live up to all the hype I've heard about it...

I'm definitely one of the Celebration Ale fans. I've heard there were 2 batches this year and the second batch is supposedly better, apparently the hops didn't have the AA expected and they adjusted for greater hoppiness.

However; I picked up a Celebration Ale off of the counter yesterday that I had poured and then allowed to come up to drinking temperature. After a couple drinks I decided to just pour it down the drain, it tasted nearly completed unhopped and sickly malt sweet. As I was going to the sink I saw the bottle and realized that I had not poured SNCA but rather a Gordon Biersch Winter Bock. It's amazing how much expectations can alter perceptions. I doubt Winter Bock will make a list of my favorite beers but expecting it to taste like Celebration Ale is not fair at all!

Brewtopia, that's a beautiful list. Mine has only been going for about a year, so I have a ways to go before I match that.
