Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Inc. for the second year is the Official Beer of Record Store Day.
Celebrating music Dogfish Head has crafted Beer To Drink Music To ’17, a tropical blonde ale brewed with kiwi juice and hibiscus flowers.
In addition to the Record Store Day event, Dogfish Head is helping to sponsor and promote The Paste Sampler, a clear vinyl LP included with Paste Quarterly Spring 2017 an innovative rebirth of Paste Magazine in a large 12″ magazine format.
I got my copy yesterday as a result of an IndieGoGo crowdfund pledge I made. It is a sweet magazine to savor and read. I plan to listen to the sampler this weekend, read my new magazine and have a Beer To Drink Music To ’17 as I sit out the winter storm headed our way.
Cheers to Dogfish Head Brewery for taking a leadership role in music empowerment!
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!
