Received an email yesterday from 'Arrogant Bastard Brewing' which states that if enough people put in preorders for a new batch of Crime and Punishment, they will brew fresh batches at the end of 2018. I actually think for such 'cult' beers with strong love/hate relationships this is a smart idea for both brewer and consumers. Text from email below: TO THE FANS OF CRIME & PUNISHMENT YOU ARE FEW. WE KNOW THAT. Years back, there were haters out there who stumbled upon expensive bottles of beer, one labeled “Crime”, the other “Punishment.” We made it clear right the label: these bottles contained an intense level of heat thanks to the freshly picked variety of very, very spicy chili peppers stuffed into barrels containing the beer. Still, some were aghast at the fiery burn on their tongues. Yes, they were hot, you ninnies – that’s what we said. THEN THERE WERE YOU. You were the folks that grabbed us by the metaphorical shirt collar and said “I WANT MORE.” And so you shall have it. This is for you, dear Crime and Punishment fans. THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO SELF-IDENTIFY. If there are enough of you ready to step up and make it happen, there will be a late-2018 special limited release of both Crime and Punishment. But we need to hit a threshold to make it all work. If we do, we’ll make the beers. If we don’t, then we (read: Greg) were wrong, and we won’t. But Greg’s betting there are enough of you passionate heat-loving sumbitches are out there to make it happen. You can stake your claim to them now by filling out the form below. We won’t make you pay just yet, as the beers won’t be ready until November. We’ll deal with those mundane details later. We’ll give you until July 4 to sign up below. If we don’t make the threshold, we won’t brew the beer and we won’t charge you a dime. Second chances like this are rare. Spread the news to your capsaicin-loving friends. This is your shot to bring back the burn. Bottles $14.99 or a 4-Pack for $49.99 QUESTION: WHAT OTHER DISCONTINUED/PERSONAL FAVORITE BEERS WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE DONE THIS WAY?
