Last year, Music of Our Heart reported that Dogfish Head Brewery was the Official Beer for Record Store Day 2015. Well, Off-centered folks Dogfish Head will be honoring a second year as the Official Beer of Record Store Day 2016. They are celebrating this special day with some unique Dogfish Head offerings 😉
Starting with the natural product, Beer To Drink Music To, which was created as the perfect beer for fans to pair with their favorite songs. Utilizing ingredients inspired by some of our favorite tunes, the four primary ingredients (orange peel, peppercorns, candi sugar, and cardamom) were inspired by the following: Orange Crush by REM, Sgt. Pepper by The Beatles, Sugar On My Tongue by Talking Heads, and Mock Song by Phish. The result is a Belgian-style Tripel and a perfect marriage between beer and music.
Lou Reed : I Can’t Stand It
Peter Bjorn & John : Amsterdam
Patti Smith Group : Dancing Barefoot
Outkast : Ms. Jackson
Johnny Cash : I Hardly Ever Sing Beer Drinking Songs
Lee Dorsey : Give It Up
Mongo Santamaria : We Got Latin Soul
Dennis Wilson : River Song
Shabba Ranks with Chevelle Franklin : Mr. Loverman
Johnny Paycheck : Fifteen Beers
Bessie Smith : Gimme A Pigfoot & A Bottle of Beer
The compilation will be released on Record Store Day at retailers across the country.
But wait there’s more, the music geeks at Dogfish Head have created three more items, two of which are for sale on the Dogfish Head Store and one that you can only get at certain record stores on Record Store Day 2016, April 16th!
