Just like Raskolnikov debated whether or not to rob and kill in “Crime and Punishment,” we’d recommend you stop and think about drinking Crime and Punishment from Stone Brewing Co. next time you see them at the bar. The two new beers from the San Diego brewery are not for the timid. Crime is a version of Lucky Bastard – which is a blend of Arrogant Bastard, Oaked Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard – that’s brewed with an absurd amount of peppers, and Punishment is the same except with just Double Bastard Ale as the base. We’d say the 9.6% ABV and 12% ABV respectively are fairly strong, but that really won’t matter when you’re chasing each sip with a gallon of milk.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
