Grateful Dead and Dogfish Head to Collaborate on Beer


Justin Charles

Microbrewery Dogfish Head has announced a collaboration with The Grateful Dead, the result of which will be a new 'American Beauty' beer. Dogfish describes the beer as a "strong pale ale with all-American hops and barley", and they are asking fans to send in ideas for a special ingredient, as well as a Grateful Dead inspired story to go along with it. The fan who suggests the winning ingredient will be invited to a special testing in Delaware in Spring 2013.

David Lemieux, legacy manager of The Grateful Dead, issued this statement as well, “Grateful Dead Productions is extremely pleased to be partnering with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery on the American Beauty pale ale. We’ve looked for a long while for the perfect brewery to team up with for a Grateful Dead-inspired brew, and feel we’ve finally found the right fit. 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".

You can expect to see American Beauty in stores and on taps around October 2013. More details are available at http://www.dogfish.com.
