Badger Hill will be the first in the state to brew famous Arrogant Bastard Ale

A Minnesota brewery will be the first in the state to brew the famous Arrogant Bastard Ale.

Badger Hill Brewing will brew a single, limited batch of the extremely hoppy beer, which was created by the founders of California-based Stone Brewery – one of the largest craft breweries in the country.

Stone Brewery had brewed the beer until 2015, when it announced Arrogant Bastard would split off and form its own company – Arrogant Brewing.

Soon after, it launched the "Arrogant Bastard Hits the Road" project.

The brewery lends its recipe to select craft breweries around the country – it's a nod to the ones that show "forward-thinking, skilled, incredible or otherwise noteworthy brewing expertise," according to the project's website.

The beer will be served on draft at Badger Hill's Shakopee taproom starting Aug. 23, with more details about the release expected from the brewery in the coming weeks.

Arrogant Bastard Ale supports Foster Care to Success – $2 from every pint purchased at Badger Hill will go towards the national nonprofit that provides tuition grants for foster children who are going to college.
