Dayton, Ohio, pub Boston’s Bistro and Pub has won the title of “Most Arrogant Bar in America” by selling sold more Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale from Nov. 3-9 than 46 other national competitors during a brewery-sponsored challenge.
Boston’s has 12 beer taps and two beer engines for cask-conditioned ales. However, choices were few during Stone’s “Most Arrogant Bar in America” Challenge. “We took every single tap off and all we had was Arrogant Bastard,” said head bartender Mark Zimmerman.
Pints of Arrogant Bastard Ale sold for $2 each and 64-ounce growlers for $7. The bar went through 18 kegs.
Realbeer.com views this competition with particular affection since it grew out of our Challenge Cup, an event we sponsored during American Beer Month each July (ABM sine became American Beer Week and moved to May).
