Three Bastards at the Ginger Man

Perhaps inspired by the upcomfing Stone'd for Six Days event, the Ginger Man apparently wants you give you some love from Stone Brewing as well.

For only $11.25 you can get a flight of Arrogant Bastard Ale, Oaked Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard with a Bavarian style pretzel. Not sure why there's a pretzel thrown in on that deal, but I do like their soft pretzels. Only available while supplies last.

Stopped in last night. As has been the case many times recently, the website didn't match what was on tap there. They had the regular Bastard, but they said they'd have the full flight "by the end of the month." They did, however, have the pretzels.

Thanks for the update. I've found it hard sometimes get confirmation when beer is going to be available there. They often have beer listed on their website and even on the printed menus in the bar that are not on yet. I've asked the staff but they don't always know when it will be either. I'm sure it can be difficult to know exactly since they can't put on a new beer until a current one is out.

Well, technically, they can't put a new beer on tap until they take another one off, and they don't want to take a keg off until they drain it.

And, apparently, they aren't willing to run fire sales like the Saucer does to empty a keg.

Websites are pretty easy things to update, they might want to wait to do that until they actually can sell what they're marketing. Pretty frustrating considering it's a pretty good pub on other counts.
