Earlier this week I learned that last year Stone Brewing split Arrogant Bastard into its own brewery, Arrogant Brewing. A pilsner of all things - the most unlikely Stone or Arrogant Bastard source - lead me to discover Arrogant Brewing. Last weekend I picked up a six-pack of Who You Callin' Wussie pilsner, assuming it was from Stone. When I replied to a tweet where I recommended what I referenced as Stone's new Who You Callin' Wussie pilsner, Stone's social media group replied that while it agreed Who You Callin' Wussie was delicious, it was not a Stone beer but an Arrogant Brewing creation. A quick internet search found Arrogant Brewing, its stories, and its lineup of beers.
I will leave it to the pilsner purists to tell me whether Who You Callin' Wussie is true to style. I don't really care. After drinking it, I know it is quite a beer. It is a crisp, spot-on thirst quencher that is full of flavor. It will never be confused with that beer that changed its name to America. On Arrogant Brewing's website it looks like Who You Callin' Wussie is the only beer that is not an Arrogant Bastard derivative. This difference alone makes it a beer worthy of your attention.
