A few years ago I headed out West with 3 Italian visitors. We went from Las vegas, throught the SW and back to Las Vegas. I spent a tense and uncommunicative several days in Utah. Now, I loooove Utah - the vermillion buttes, the pinyon topped mesas, the majestic canyons. Big sky and bizarre landscapes set aside, they only serve reduced alcohol beer. They rarely serve real coffee. So, as you might imagine, I was itching for a good brew.
I found two beer havens in my meandering. The first was in Cortez, CO near Mesa Verde. A wonderful brew-pub satisfied all my cravings for good drink and good food at once. Next, in AZ, at the edge of the grand canyon, I found Arrogant Bastard Ale. I fell in love. Not only was the super-hoppy ale absolutely devine, but the bottle design was very funny (as you can see by the link below). I asked to take the bottle, they said no. I vowed to remember the name, but I forgot. I have found ABA again. At my local liquor store. I'm so happy.
