    I am a columnist writing for the Lompoc Record in Lompoc, CA. There is an empty Arrogant Bastard Ale bottle in Winston’s Matador Barber Shop in Lompoc. He has a rather wonderful bottle collection in his shop, and the Arrogant Bastard Ale label caught my attention. I have mentioned it in two of my columns. It’s getting to be something of a legend.

    Can you please tell me the origin of the name? Here’s a guess: since the beer originated in or near San Diego, does the name refer to an arrogant naval officer? Sorry if this offends any naval officers, but I’m grasping at straws here. Allie Kay
