Dogfish Head Celebrates Pearl Jam in New Beer

October 7, 2011

When they're not working with Google on a new beer, Dogfish Head Brewery is apparently listening to awesome music. The brewery announced they had created a new beer, called their "Faithful Ale," in honor of Pearl Jam's 20th year of playing music together. 

Dogfish described the beer as a "Belgian-style golden ale is delicately hopped to 20 IBUs and fruit-forward from 10 incremental additions of black currants over a one-hour boil. Faithfull will clock in at 7% ABV."

"As an off-centered brewery, we believe in celebrating the breadth of our whole portfolio and we feel an affinity for Pearl Jam a long-player band in a singles-obsessed world," president and founder Sam Calagione said. 

Along with "Faithful," Dogfish will re-release two previous music collaborations: the Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew and a Robert Johnson-inspired Hellhound on My Ale. All three beers will be distributed to states that currently stock Dogfish beer.
