The 'American Beauty' pale ale will hit stores in October 2013

While Dogfish Head is touting its seasonal Punkin ale, the beloved brewery is also concocting a new brew just for you Dead Heads. Introducing the American Beauty beer, a collaboration between the Grateful Dead and Dogfish Head, which will be in stores in October 2013.

Apparenly, the Grateful Dead members are huge fans of Dogfish Head, so the collaboration is nothing short of heaven. "Aside from Dogfish’s history with music-themed brews, we love their beer, and think it’s the best around. Plus, these are really good people and are the type of folks we want to work with," said David Lemieux, legacy manager for Grateful Dead in a press release.

The Huffington Post reports that the American Beauty brew will be an strong barley and malt pale ale, but the brewery is looking to fans to suggest a final ingredient to add to the brew. Starting in December, you can suggest your ingredient on the Dogfish Head website. So, we imagine that Dead Head + Dogfish Head = Dogfish Dead Head?


Dogfish Head, Grateful Dead Collaborate to Release American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA

MILTON, Del. – To celebrate their ‘long strange trip’ together, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and the Grateful Dead release a third iteration of American Beauty, American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA, brought together by Warner Music Artist Services. American Beauty HazyRipple IPA is an unfiltered IPA brewed with spelt, an ancient heirloom grain that contributes earthy notes and a natural haze, and dosed with a special yeast variety designed to liberate hop aromatics. The result is a psychedelic, 7.0% ABV ale that is bursting with notes of tropical fruit and juicy citrus. American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA will be available year-round in 6pk/12oz cans throughout Dogfish Head’s45-state network starting in mid-November.

“As a self-proclaimed beer geek with a music problem, I couldn’t be happier about the continuation of our awesome partnership with theGrateful Dead and our collaborative efforts to develop American BeautyHazy Ripple IPA,” said Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head. “Justas the Dead say, ‘there is a road, no simple highway’ – our journey to develop the perfect recipe for American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA was a lengthy one, but we ‘put our money where our love is’ and eventually arrived at our flavor destination.”

Inspired by the Grateful Dead’s beloved “American Beauty” album,American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA’s style callout lovingly references the fan-favorite track “Ripple.” To accompany the beer’s new, chart-topping recipe, American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA boasts original, kaleidoscopic artwork featuring one of the Grateful Dead’s iconic ‘dancing bears’ holding a festive balloon adorned with the band’s logo.

Sam Calagione started brewing in his kitchen in New York City, [10] where he created his first beer out of overripe cherries with his roommates Ken Marino and Joe Lo Truglio. [11] [ better source needed ] Dogfish Head has brew houses in Rehoboth, Lewes, and Milton, Delaware. [12] The first successful beer that Dogfish Head produced was Midas Touch, which was brewed with honey, white Muscat grapes, and saffron. [13] Although it started by only selling beer in the state of Delaware, Dogfish Head became one of the most profitable microbreweries in the United States. As of 2017 it distributed its beer in 38 states, the most recent being Louisiana. [14]

Calagione sources ingredients from around the world. Dogfish Head has become one of the most watched and well-respected breweries in the country thanks in large part to Calagione's unconventional brewing methods. These ingredients made it possible for his company to grow. [15] The company used to be the smallest microbrewery in the United States, with Calagoione starting with three very small kegs with propane burners beneath them. Dogfish Head's brewery in Rehoboth, Delaware, originally produced only 10 gallons of beer per day when it opened in June 1995. [16] By 2018, Dogfish Head had become one of America's largest and most well-known breweries, producing around 15,000 gallons of beer per day.

Merger with Boston Beer Co. (Samuel Adams)
In 2019, Calagione had informal talks with Boston Beer Company's Jim Koch at the annual Extreme Beer Fest in Boston. After a few pints, the two realized how complementary their businesses were and within a few months, they merged with Boston Beer Co. becoming the parent organization. [17] As part of the merger, Calagione and his wife, Mariah, converted their Dogfish Head stock in Boston Beer Co. stock, immediately becoming the second biggest non-institutional owners of the merged companies.

Dogfish Head tends to produce experimental or "extreme" beers, such as the tongue-in-cheek "Liquor de Malt", a bottle-conditioned malt liquor, which typically comes in a Dogfish Head brown paper bag. Dogfish Head products often use non-standard ingredients, such as green raisins in Raison D'Être ale. Some beers, including the WorldWide Stout, 120 Minute India Pale Ale, and the raspberry-flavored strong ale Fort, are highly alcoholic, reaching 18% to 20% alcohol by volume (typical beers have around 3% to 7% alcohol by volume). [ citation needed ]

One of Dogfish Head's more notable odd beers was a green beer called Verdi Verdi Good, produced in 2005 and sold only on draft. The beer was not colored green artificially rather, the green color was derived from brewing a Dortmunder style beer that contained spirulina, or blue-green algae. [ citation needed ]

Pangaea, first released in 2003, is a Belgian-style strong pale ale made with ingredients from every continent on Earth, including: crystallized ginger from Australia, water from Antarctica, basmati rice from Asia, muscavado sugar from Africa, quinoa from South America, European yeast, and North American maize. [18] The name Pangaea refers to the eponymous super-continent which existed about 250 million years ago. [ citation needed ]

The New York Times in 2010 profiled the brewery's efforts to make chicha beer, a traditional Latin American beverage made from maize, which requires chewing the corn and spitting it in a communal pot. [19]

In 2020 the brewery began producing hand sanitiser in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. [20] [21]

IPAs Edit

Dogfish Head's best-selling product is its line of India Pale Ales (IPAs), which are offered in seven varieties: [ citation needed ]

  • 60 Minute IPA (denoting the length of the boil with which hops are continually added)
  • 90 Minute IPA
  • 120 Minute IPA
  • Sixty-One, a beer-wine hybrid brewed with Syrah grape must
  • Aprihop, a Spring seasonal IPA brewed with apricots
  • Burton Baton, an imperial oak-aged IPA
  • 75 Minute IPA (cask or bottle conditioned)

The longer hops are boiled, the more hop isomerization takes place, and the more bitterness is imparted to the beer. The 60 Minute is described by the company as "a session IPA brewed with Warrior, Amarillo and Simcoe" and rated at 60 IBUs. Dogfish Head introduced a device in 2003 jokingly called Randall the Enamel Animal, an "organoleptic hop transducer module" which "Randallizes" a given beer by passing the beer through a large plastic tube filled with a flavor enhancer, often raw hops, though adaptations such as fruits and coffee beans amongst others have also been used. The alcohol in the beer lifts oils off the raw hops and imparts even more hop flavor and aroma to beers that were already hoppy to begin with. [ citation needed ]

The 75 Minute IPA was developed in 2008, and has been produced in very limited quantities, and typically distributed to vendors in firkins. The beer—nicknamed "Johnny Cask" and featuring a mascot resembling a young Johnny Cash tapping a firkin with a mallet—is made from a mixture of the 60 and 90 Minutes IPAs, and undergoes a separate cask conditioning which includes the addition of maple syrup. As a variation on the 75 Minute IPA, the Alehouse 75 is also available. It is a mixture of the 60 and 90 Minute offerings, yet is served in a standard Sankey-style keg, rather than a firkin. [ citation needed ]

Ancient Ales Edit

In the late 90s, Dogfish Head started an "Ancient Ales" series, in which beer recipes were created based upon the chemical analysis of residue found on pottery and drinking vessels from various archaeological sites. These beers have been produced in collaboration with molecular archaeologist Dr. Pat McGovern of the University of Pennsylvania. As of 2010, four such brews have been crafted, and only one (Midas Touch) is produced year-round. The others are produced on a limited basis.

  • Midas Touch Golden Elixir (first released in 1999). A strong ale based on residue found on drinking vessels from the tomb of King Midas, dating back to the 8th century BC. Defining ingredients include Muscat grapes, honey, and saffron. (See section below for more information.)
  • Chateau Jiahu (first released in 2006). A spiced strong ale based on residue from pottery found in the Neolithic village of Jiahu (in central China), dating to the 7th millennium BC. Some defining ingredients include rice flakes, wildflower honey, hawthorn fruit, and Chrysanthemum flowers. As of 2009, this is the oldest known beer recipe to be brewed in the modern age. [22]
  • Theobroma (first released in 2008). A chocolate beer based on residue found on pottery discovered in Honduras dating to approximately 1200 BC. Some defining ingredients include Azteccocoa powder, honey, and annatto.
  • Ta Henket (first released in 2010, bottles released in late 2011). This beer was created to incorporate ancient ingredients and techniques described in Egyptian hieroglyphics. It was brewed with emmer, loaves of hearth baked bread, dom-palm fruit, chamomile, and zatar. Fermentation was carried out by a native Egyptian saccharomyces wild yeast strain captured from the air in Egypt. [23]

Midas Touch Edit

Midas Touch Golden Elixir, marketed as Midas Touch, was first marketed in June 2001. The recipe for this beverage is based on the chemical analysis of residues found in clay vessels believed to date back to the 8th century BC. Originally discovered in Gordium, Turkey during a 1957 dig by archaeologist Rodney Young, the content of these vessels was left unknown for 40 years. In 1997, molecular archeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern received a phone call from a former student of his informing him of a residue on clay jars from the tomb of King Midas. Dr. McGovern quickly did chemical analysis finding all aspects of the drink except for the spicing agent but made an assumption of saffron due to regional availability. [24]

In March 2000, Calagione attended a special dinner for beer writer Michael Jackson. At this time McGovern and Calagione met and discussed recreating the brew. In early 2001 the new beverage was served at a dinner recreating the funeral feast of King Midas. At $150 a plate the meal was a benefit to support the Chemical Archaeology program at University of Pennsylvania. [24]

Dogfish Head brewery dispenses approximately 1,700-1,800 cases per month to distributors. At the time of discovery Midas Touch Golden Elixir was the oldest fermented beverage recipe discovered. Dogfish Head brewery still today holds the record with a 9,000 yr old recipe used for Chateau Jiahu, which was released in July 2007. [25]

The ingredients for the original 7.5% ABV recipe in 2001 included yellow muscat grapes, lightly toasted 2-row barley malt, thyme, honey and saffron. [26] The ingredients for the 9% ABV recipe include barley, white Muscat grapes, honey and saffron. [27]

Noble Rot Edit

In 2010, Calagione collaborated with Washington winemaker Jarrod Boyle of Alexandria Nicole Cellars to produce a "hybrid" beer-wine beverage labeled Noble rot. A saison-style beer, the brewery uses botrytis-infected Viognier and Pinot gris grapes from Alexandria Nicole's Destiny Ridge Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA in the brew. This results in a beer with 49.5% of the fermentable sugars coming from grapes that finishes with a 9% alcohol level. Alexandria Nicole presses the grapes, leaving the skins with the must, and Dogfish co-ferments the Viognier and grains while adding the Pinot gris later in the process. In 2012, the beer went nationwide in the United States in more than 27 states from coast to coast and was received with critical acclaim [ weasel words ] . [28] [29] [30]

Sah'tea Edit

In 2009, the Dogfish Head team began experimenting to produce their own version of the traditional Finnish-style beer called sahti. Traditional sahti is brewed with a variety of grains, malted and unmalted, including barley, rye, wheat, and oats then flavored with juniper berries in addition to, or instead of, hops. The old-school style of brewing sahti also includes the step of heating hot rocks over a fire and using them to boil the wort. [31] They departed from the traditional recipe, however, with the creative inclusion of Maya Tea Company's Original Chai tea in their brew, resulting in a rich, malty, and lightly spiced brew.

Dogfish Head & The Grateful Dead Reunite for 2019 American Beauty

Milton, Del., December 4, 2018 – Dogfish Head is truckin’ into 2019 as it reunites with the iconic Grateful Dead band to bring back a much-anticipated collaboration beer, American Beauty. This synergetic union brings fans a pale ale that shares a name with the popular 1970 Grateful Dead album, American Beauty, featuring hits like “Friend of the Devil,” ”Sugar Magnolia,” and “Truckin.’” A band with an immensely loyal, multi-generational fan base, the Grateful Dead are widely known for blending music genres like psychedelia, blues, folk, country, rock ‘n’ roll and jazz to create their incredibly unique rock sound.

Available in 6pk/12oz bottles and clocking in at 6.5% ABV to commemorate the year the Grateful Dead was formed (1965), American Beauty is brewed with granola and succulent wildflower honey which adds toasty, sweet notes to this hoppy ale. When Dogfish Head first collaborated with the band in 2013, they jointly reached out to their fan base with a call out for ingredient suggestions to incorporate into the recipe of the beer. Loyal dead heads and off-centered ale enthusiasts submitted more than 1500 ingredient suggestions, and after careful thought (and chuckles at some of the entries,) it was granola for the win. The beer was an instant favorite and Dogfish Head is bringing it back for a limited time in December 2018, and will be available through 2019.

“After more than 50 years of performing in front of fans all over the world, folks remain fiercely loyal to the Grateful Dead due to the organically imaginative, creative and accessible culture they nurture across all artistic platforms,” said Sam Calagione, CEO and founder of Dogfish Head. “We, at Dogfish, are inspired by their music, along with their unprecedented ability to bridge long-lasting, meaningful connections with fans for decades on end. We’re thrilled to collaborate with the Dead for a second iteration of American Beauty and hope fans of free-spirited music and independent beer will join in welcoming back this classic pale ale.” In addition to the beer release, Dogfish Head will be working with the official Grateful Dead archivist, David Lemieux, who curates and produces a series of rare and highly sought-after live Grateful Dead shows, known as “Dave’s Picks.” Dogfish Head will partner with Lemieux on a number of projects, including an immersive storytelling experience at their Rehoboth and Milton properties in early February. Good tunes and great beer are deeply rooted in the DNA of Dogfish Head as the brewery has composed several musically inspired beers with notable artists like The Flaming Lips, Miles Davis, Deltron 3030, Pearl Jam and Guided by Voices.

Dogfish Head is also excited to share their 2019 beer calendar. Off-centered ale fans can count on finding their favorite year round Dogfish beers on shelves and taps, including 60 Minute IPA, 90 Minute Imperial IPA,SeaQuench Ale, Flesh & Blood IPA, Namaste White, Liquid Truth Serum IPA (now available in 12oz/6pk and 16oz/4pk cans,) Lupu-Luau IPA, Palo Santo Marron, Burton Baton, Midas Touch and Wood-Aged Bitches Brew.

SuperEIGHT, a vibrant red sessionable Super Gose, will debut this year in 6pk/12oz cans. This unique beer is made with eight heroic superfoods including prickly pear, mango, boysenberry, blackberry, raspberry, elderberry and kiwi juices, with a touch of toasted quinoa and an ample addition of red Hawaiian sea salt. With delicious flavors of berries and watermelon, this ale has a slightly tart and pleasantly refreshing finish.

A longtime champion of all things collaborative and artful, Dogfish Head is celebrating its 2019 Off-Centered Art Series, for which they have partnered with highly acclaimed artist, Michael Hacker, to create custom pieces of art for beers that brings their unique stories to life through visuals.

Grateful Dead:

Grateful Dead is a social and musical phenomenon that grew into a genuine American treasure. In 1965, an entire generation was linked together by common ideals, gathering by the hundreds and thousands. This movement created a seamless connection between the band and its fans. As the band toured, Dead Heads would follow. Not because it was a part of popular culture, but because it is a true counterculture that exists to this very day-one that earnestly believes in the value of its beliefs. By 1995, Grateful Dead had attracted the most concert goers in the history of the music business, and today remain one of the all-time leaders in concert ticket sales. Eventually, the caravan evolved into a community with various artists, craftsmen and entrepreneurs supplying a growing demand for merchandise that connected them to the music. Today, the connection is as strong as ever.

11 Things You Should Know About Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery launched in 1995 in Rehoboth, Del., a seasonal town for beach-goers with little connection to craft beer. Apparently, Rehoboth was thirsty: Dogfish Head Brewery & Eats was welcomed with open arms and mouths, and the brewery opened a second production facility in nearby Milton, Del., in 1997.

In its nearly 25-year history, the company has grown from the country’s smallest operating brewpub to the 12th largest, producing close to 300,000 barrels of beer per year shipped to 37 states.

Here are 11 more things you should know about Dogfish Head.

Every Beer Lover Needs This Hop Aroma Poster

It came from the street.

The brewery got its name from Dogfish Head Road, a street in Southport, Me., near the Calagione family’s summer home. The suggestion came from founder and president Sam Calagione’s father, when the pair passed the sign during a leisurely jog. It was certainly better than naming it after the adjoining street Lobster Pound Craft Brewery doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

It brewed a beer with live lobsters.

When Dogfish Head launched in 1995, it pledged to make “off-centered ales for off-centered people.” Translation? Flavorful, food-focused beers that challenged the status quo.

That ethos has been a thread throughout the company’s history, evident in beers like Chocolate Lobster, brewed with live lobsters, more than six pounds of dark cocoa powder, and basil tea for good measure. It translates, too, to events like the Dogfish Dash, an “off-centered road race” through Milton that benefits the Delaware chapter of the Nature Conservancy.

Today, the motto has slight variations, but its message is unchanged.

Its founder is clean-shaven with a Beard.

After seven consecutive nominations for a James Beard Award, in 2017, Dogfish Head founder and president Sam Calagione was honored as the Outstanding Wine, Spirits or Beer Professional of the Year.

“I celebrate this award with my wife and business partner, Mariah, and our 200-plus co-workers who work hard to make our off-centered company tick,” Calagione said in an announcement at the time.

It brewed up a business, and a few books on the way.

Calagione cites authors like David Foster Wallace and Ernest Hemingway as inspirations, and has authored several books of his own, including “Brewing Up a Business” (2005) “Extreme Brewing” (2011) and “Off-Centered Leadership: The Dogfish Head Guide to Motivation, Collaboration and Smart Growth” (2016). He also co-authored “He Said Beer, She Said Wine” (2008) and “Project Extreme Brewing: An Enthusiast’s Guide to Extreme Brewing at Home” (2017).

Its 90 Minute IPA changed craft beer forever.

Dogfish Head helped define the American IPA style with its (literally) game-changing 90 Minute IPA. This ultra-flavorful, hoppy brew was the first to utilize the continual hopping method, a process in which hops are added continually throughout the brewing process, rather than precisely at the beginning, middle, and end.

The inspiration for the method involved a cooking show, tomato sauce, and a tabletop vibrating football game. For the full story, check out the oral history of 90 Minute IPA as told by Calagione to VinePair here.

It claimed to make the ultimate desert-island beer.

In 2018, Dogfish Head debuted “It’s The End of the Wort As We Know It,” a Belgian-style, fruited ale that claimed to permanently answer one of our favorite questions: “What’s your desert-island beer?”

The brewery playfully purported that the beer was ideal for desert-island imbibing thanks to its antioxidant-packed, fiber-rich ingredients like blueberries, acai berries, goji berries, purple sweet potatoes, rose hips, chia seeds, flax seed, spelt, oats, and quinoa.

It makes the most popular sour beer in America.

SeaQuench Ale, a mashup of three beer styles — kolsch, Berliner weisse, and gose — adds black limes, sour lime juice, and sea salt to a light and thirst-quenching brew. It launched in 2016 with an ocean-sized splash. Originally created to celebrate the launch of Dogfish Head’s seafood restaurant, Chesapeake & Maine, the beer is now reportedly the best-selling sour beer in America.

It has its own web series.

“That’s Odd, Let’s Drink It!” launched its second season in August 2018. The show, which airs on YouTube in collaboration with First We Feast, originally debuted in 2015. While the first season showed Calagione brewing with various cultural icons, like NBA all-star and apparent avid homebrewer Chris Bosh, the new roster focuses more on tasting beers. Guests include Flaming Lips lead singer Wayne Coyne, famed YouTube food-tasting duo Rhett & Link, and First We Feast’s “Hot Ones” host Sean Evans.

It’s not just a brewery.

Dogfish Head began as a humble brewpub in 1995, but is now a multi-faceted Delaware beer destination. In addition to its brewpub in Rehoboth and production brewery in Milton, the company opened its own hotel, the Dogfish Inn, in Lewes, Del., in 2014 a seafood restaurant, Chesapeake & Maine, in 2016 and revamped its R&D brewery and distillery in Rehoboth last year.

It’s not a fan of RateBeer — or Big Beer.

In 2017, news broke that the popular beer rating and review website, RateBeer.com, was partially acquired by ZX Ventures, the investment arm of Anheuser-Busch InBev. Following the announcement, Calagione spoke outwardly against the company and demanded his brewery’s beers be removed from the website. Other breweries followed, including Boston’s Harpoon, Denver’s Black Project, and Belgium’s Cantillon.

Beer is music to Dogfish Head’s ears.

Dogfish Head has a long history of collaborating with musicians and artists. In 2018, it released Dragons & YumYums, a pale ale brewed with dragon fruit, yumberry, passionfruit, pear juice, and black carrot juice in collaboration with The Flaming Lips.

In 2019, Dogfish is re-releasing its collaboration with the Grateful Dead, American Beauty. Originally released in 2013 in 750-milliliter bottles, the beer’s fourth release will be available in 6-packs year-round. The “psychedelic” pale ale’s key ingredient is — what else? — granola.


Know the perfect ingredient for a Grateful Dead beer? Speak now

Grateful Dead experts can talk at length about the band’s varying periods, be it the band’s jazzy, never-ending folk excursions or its blues-rock roots. But regardless of the era, if you have ever listened and enjoyed any of it, and then thought, ‘I wonder how this would taste,’ now is your time to speak up.

Delaware’s adventurous Dogfish Head Brewery is in the final stages of soliciting ingredients from fans for its American Beauty, a pale ale it is concocting with the help of surviving members of the Grateful Dead. Submissions are due at midnight, but don’t think you can just rattle off an ingredient (a legal one, of course) to enter. Dogfish’s Sam Calagione wants a story about how your suggestion ties in to the band.

Writes the brewery, “Did you trade a bushel of fresh clementines for tickets to a two-night stand at Long Beach Arena? Or maybe your dad first laid eyes on your mom sipping a cup of green tea in the parking lot of the legendary Cornell ’77 show?”

No doubt the band’s varied history will inspire plenty of crazy suggestions, but chances are Dogfish is up to the challenge. Among its more than 30 beers is one concocted with Pinot Noir juice and another was inspired by the “chemical analysis of 3,000-year-old pottery fragments found in Honduras.” The ingredients for Dogfish’s recent Birra Etrusca Bronze came from “analyzing drinking vessels found in 2,800-year-old Etruscan tombs” in Italy.

So, Deadheads, fans of Dogfish are counting on you to be creative here. Those who pick the winning ingredient -- to be chosen by Dogfish and the surviving band members -- will win a trip to the brewery to witness the beer-making process.

Dogfish’s music connections run deep. Chicago resident Jon Langford, leader of long-running punk outfit the Mekons, has designed artwork for the brewery. Dogfish has also released a Miles Davis-inspired beer (Bitches Brew) as well as one named after Robert Johnson (Hellhound on My Ale). In 2011, Dogfish unleashed Faithfull Ale, a beer that celebrated the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam’s “Ten,” and last year, Dogfish teamed with electronic artist Dan the Automator on a beer/vinyl collaboration (Positive Contact).

“I learned more about growing Dogfish by studying the music industry,” Calagione told Pop & Hiss in 2012. “There’s so many parallels between music and beer. For example, Top 40 music is the equivalent of light lager beer. It dominates commercially, it’s accessible and it’s not distinct -- it’s intentionally not distinct.”

But while Dogfish’s beer and music credentials are impeccable, Pop & Hiss can’t help but note how serendipitous it would have been had L.A.'s own Golden Road Brewing been granted the Grateful Dead assignment.

Golden Road, after all, takes its name from the Dead track “The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion),” and if that isn’t enough to prove that the folks at Golden Road Brewing are a bunch of hippies, their brown ale Either Side of the Hill is inspired by a lyric in the Dead’s “Ramble on Rose.”

But no matter, where beer and the Dead are concerned, there are sure to be bootleggers the world over crafting their own Dead-inspired homebrews. Dogfish’s American Beauty is due in the fall of 2013.


The 12 Tastiest Beer and Music Collaborations


New weather, new beer. Hello sunshine!

Beer and music. Together, they’re a hell of a combo. Music festivals, concerts, albums, and even the broken jukebox at your local dive bar sound better with a beer in hand. But, what happened if beer snuck back into the dressing room, and the two became one? If you now have an odd image of a microphone and a keg, well, you’re welcome. Here are a dozen times beer and music became one, for the benefit of both music and beer.

Stone Brewing, The String Cheese Incident, and Alice Cooper

Greg Koch, the founder of Stone, Keri Kelli, the guitarist of Alice Cooper and Skid Row fame, are long-time friends that date back to Kelli’s earliest days of renting out Koch’s warehouse for his band’s practices. Add in Kyle Hollingsworth, the keyboardist from The String Cheese Incident who bumped into Koch at the Great American Beer Festival, and you’ve got a weirdly random, but somehow natural, blending of three big personalities into one beer.

Dogfish Head and Julianna Barwick, Grateful Dead, Deltron 3030

Dogfish Head has a bevy of collaborations under their belt. Just like the brewery, the combinations are slightly off center. They include beers with Julianna Barwick, Grateful Dead and Deltron 3030, named “Rosabi,” “American Beauty,” and “Positive Contact,” respectively.

Stillwater Artisanal: I Miss the Old Kanye, Hopvine Bling, Moneytree$

Inspired by Kanye West, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar respectively, Brian Strumke of Stillwater said that these beers weren’t just marketing schemes, that the brewery “takes the characteristic styles and personas of rap artists and translates them into inspired beers.” Despite the probable copyright issues that brought “I Miss The Old Kanye” back off the shelves, these three “artist-inspired” beers are just that — not exactly collaborations, but great tasting tributes.

Twisted Pine Brewing Co and Ghostface Killah

Though this beer, from what I can find, has nothing to do with Ghostface Killah of Wu-Tang fame, this beer is known as the “hottest beer this side of hell.” It’s a beer brewed with six types of pepper, including ghost peppers – hence the name. Few have the badassery it takes to consume one of these. One guy tried to drink five of them in five minutes. He probably regretted it, but maybe the real Ghostface wouldn’t. NSFW warning on that video, too.

Ska Brewing, DC Brau and The Pietasters

This DC-centric trio of two breweries and a ska-soul band combined to brew the “Taster’s Choice” coffee doppelbock. A run in at SAVOR led the two breweries toward collaboration, but it wasn’t until DC Brau learned that the drummer for one of their favorite DC bands, The Pietasters, worked at Ska Brewing that the three officially formed a delicious, beer-focused matrimony.

Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery

This one, a collaboration between two Brits, is more grunge than posh. It’s a premium British beer called “Trooper” that’s “created by Iron Maiden, hand crafted by Robinsons.” Iron Maiden’s vocalist Bruce Dickinson was supposedly the catalyst behind the collaboration: “I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer,” he writes.

Chance the Rapper, Run the Jewels, Twin Peaks and Goose Island

Goose Island, based on personal preference, wins the “Coolest Collabs” Award even though there’s technically no such award. Each summer at the Pitchfork Music Festival, the festival in Chicago that Goose Island sponsors, a different artist collaborates to create a new beer. Notable alumni include Chance the Rapper’s “No Collar,” Run the Jewels’ “Run the Jewels,” and Twin Peaks’ “Natural Villain.”
