Crime and Punishment beer by Stone Brewing Co. is for those who want an extra kick of flavor when they go out and party.
These brew is not just for anyone; you need to have a high tolerance for hot and spicy because if you don't you'll spend the night drinking milk and cooling your tongue instead of having a good time. The beer is named after the novel 'Crime and Punishment' written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and the names are very fitting. These two new flavors are mixtures of Stone Brewing Co.'s other beers -- 'Arrogant Bastard,' 'Oaked Arrogant Bastard' and Double Bastard -- now you have to be aware of the added hot peppers.
Further, the ABV can get you tipsier faster than other beers, as the ABV for Crime is 9.6% and Punishment is 12%.
