Drops some hop bombs with our Hip-Hop-Eclipse Spotify playlist

Fri, 02/21/2014 - 12:25pm

Welcome to our listening room. This is where, on a monthly basis (at least), we will be sharing a glimpse into what we're listening to (good music mostly) and what we're thinking about (beer mostly) in the form of a Spotify playlist. This series of lovingly curated mix tapes takes inspiration from what's happening around the brewery and pairs those stories with tracks that sound good together (mostly).

Music has been an important part of our DNA since the very beginning - starting with our live music series at the Rehoboth brewpub and continuing through to this day with music-centric annual events like Analog-A-Go-Go and Firefly Music Festival, as well as our collaborative music series of beers where we've been lucky enough to work with artists Miles Davis, Grateful Dead, Dan the Automator, Robert Johnson and Pearl Jam. This listening room is just an extension of all that music love and another chance for us to share a bunch of tracks we're digging while thinking about that thing we're always digging - delicious beer. Listen. Sip. Listen.

Check out our brand spankin new playlist here and follow us at dogfishbeer on Spotify.

In honor of AHopEclipse Now!, a celebration of our hop-centric beers that comes around but once a year, we've decided to throw our hands up, say "word to your moms" and drop some (hop) bombs with our Hip-Hop-Eclipse playlist. A balance of floral and bitter, this playlist takes inspiration from hip-hop that was kicking off around the time we opened our brewpub in Rehoboth (Black Star, Dead Prez, Organized Konfusion) and finds its thread of influence through artists that are still boom-bapping in 2014 (Joey Bada$$, The Underachievers). Best enjoyed with a Burton Baton and enormous headphones.
