A couple of Arrogant Bastards are visiting KC today

Have you heard the rumors that Stone will be distributing their beers in Missouri this year? For the past couple of weeks there has been a bit of a hullabaloo on the Twitters over a couple of tweets from Stone's VP Arlan Arnsten. Arnsten and Jason Armstrong, Stone's Central Region Sales Manager, stopped in Saint Louis yesterday to chat with Major Brands and they'll be in KC today to scout a few warehouse locations and grab a couple beers on their way back to sunny San Diego.

Stone beers are a little hit or miss for me, but as long as they send some Cali-Belgique our way I'll be happy. If the Stone guys are listening, you should stop by Blanc on the Plaza for lunch. I think Blanc's Au Poivre burger would go real nice with a bottle of Arrogant Bastard.

  2. I bought some Stone last month when I was in California, and was pleasantly surprised by the pricing: a bomber of Arrogant Bastard ran me only $4, which puts it in the running with Lagunitas for best bang for your buck. Their big(ger) beers like Double Bastard and Vertical Epic were around $7.

    They'll be a welcome addition.

  3. Hey folks - Arlan here from Stone. Yes, Jason and I were in Missouri in January specifically to find a distributor that would be a proper fit for us. We met with several (not just Major Brands) and were overall really impressed with the quality of distribution in the state. We are still working out the details and will be announcing soon who we'll be working with. I'd also like to add that Blanc Burgers was terrific. Of course we wouldn't get to KC without a taste of the Blanc! See you guys in April!

  5. I can't wait for April, there will be a 6 pack of Stone IPA in my fridge at all times. For me, it doesn't get better for a straight IPA!
