English majors and fans of somewhat depressing Russian literature will love San Diego-based Stone Brewing Co.’s newest beers: Crime and Punishment. Crime’s a special twist on the brewery’s beloved Lucky Bastard (which is a blend of Arrogant Bastard, Oaked Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard… gotta love those names). Punishment is similar, but uses Double Bastard Ale for its base brew.
However, the truly interesting thing is that both are made with a ton of peppers—so these beers are definitely not for the timid. The ABV is pretty potent too: 9.6 percent and 12 percent, respectively.
