Three Reasons (One Arrogant) To Use Pour Judgement Tonight

By  |  0 Comments

A beer, a band and a bargain.

When it comes to Newport’s nightlife (and daylife), we’re hardly alone in advocating the people use Pour Judgement. However, tonight there are a few more reasons than usual to head over to 32 Broadway.

1. Arrogant Bastard Day

Arrogant Bastard Day

Eighteen years ago today, Stone Brewing created Arrogant Bastard. It is a historic beer in the annals of the craft beer world. It could be argued that it’s the beer that put Stone Brewing on the map. While the beer itself was pretty revolutionary at the time, it’s the marketing that has defined Stone’s attitude. This is the description they created for Arrogant Bastard:

This is an aggressive ale. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory—maybe something with a multimillion-dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it’s made in a little brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless fizzy yellow beverage will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multimillion-dollar ad campaigns make things taste better. Perhaps you’re mouthing your words as you read this.

Pour Judgement is one of just a dozen Rhode Island establishments celebrating Bastard Day 2015 (the only other spot on the island being Tavern on Broadway)

2. Silverteeth

At 10pm, the music starts.

Silverteeth first crossed paths in a Bushwick, Brooklyn artist loft
where singer/songwriter Bill Bartholomew had created a DIY studio/venue
and singer/songwriter Gabriela Rassi had just moved into upon relocating
to New York City from Brazil.  The pair mostly ignored each other at
first, carrying on with their own projects until mutual financial
distress led to the idea of performing together for tips on the subway.
Before long, they began working on each others original material, and
after 100+ shows and hundreds hours of travel and singing together,
their fundraising effort had morphed into the beginnings of a
full-fledged career.
