Stone Brewing announces new release
With their signature brio, Escondido-based Stone Brewing through its brand Arrogant Brewing is releasing a new pilsner called Who You Callin’ Wussie. The new brew, released this week is arriving in 16-ounce six-pack cans.
Here is a little “flavor” of the marketing program: “Dedicated to aggressive beers that demand and bestow sophistication, Arrogant Brewing once again strikes back for the Worthy. Over decades, industrial brewers have slowly disgraced and cheapened the noble heritage of the pilsner with their relentless multi-generational downward drive to commercialized homogenization. This once vaulted style has been slowly and methodically gutted, bringing forth a soulless, anemic result, all while they have spent billions on advertising to convince the unwitting public that their fizzy yellow end result remains legit. Weak, watery beer is most certainly not legit.”
Who You Callin’ WUSSIE will be available in bars, restaurants and markets nationwide.
