Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales is teaming up with The Grateful Dead to brew up a tribute beer for deadheads.
The beer will be called American Beauty, and it will be brewed with all-American hops and barley.
American Beauty will be an Imperial Pale Ale, which is a strong, bitter beer that is heavily hopped.
Dogfish Head and The Grateful Dead are allowing fans to choose an ingredient that will be featured in American Beauty.
Starting in December, fans will be able to suggest ingredients online. The winning ingredient will be chosen from a panel of judges, and the person who suggested it will be invited to help brew a test batch at Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales.
American Beauty is set to be released in October 2013.
Dogfish Head is known for collaborating with other breweries to produce well-rounded ales, but I’ve never seen them team up with a legendary rock band.
They’ve brewed up many tribute beers in the past, such as Faithfull Ale and Hellhound on My Ale.
Dogfish Head created these beers for the anniversaries of Pearl Jam and Miles Davis, respectively. Notable Dogfish Head Beer
Festina Peche is a wheat beer that has an extremely sweet yet sour flavor. The beer is fermented with peaches that produce refreshing and tart flavors that will leave you satisfied.
60 Minute IPA is an India Pale Ale full of citrus flavor and fluorescent aroma. India Pale Ales produce a piney and resinous flavor that will swarm your taste buds. If you have already tried this bitter brew, then you must try its big brother, 90 Minute IPA.
ApriHop is an India Pale Ale brewed with real apricots and Cascade hops. The apricots provide a full flavor of sweetness that blends well with the citrusy hops. It has a strong fruity flavor that balances out the high bitterness.
