stone brewing: arrogant - who you callin' wussie

For far too long the tyrannical industrialized beer overlords have disgraced and cheapend the noble heritage of the pilsner with their relentless multi-generational downward drive to commericalized homogenization.  Over decades, this once vaulted style has been slowly and methodically gutted, bringing forth a soulless and anemic result, all the while spending billions in advertising to convince the unwitting public that their fizzy yellow end result was beer.  Arrogant will not have it.  They are striking back for true craft by stealing the pilsner back from their evil cluthched, and restoring it to its almighty glory.  They do it cheaply.  They do it right.  Choose vapidity, or choose righteousness...but whatever you do, choose wisely!

To this end they joined forces to form the Great Artisan Beverage Company.
