Dogfish Head, the Official Beer of Record Store Day!

Sunday, February 28, 2016

Music has been a part of Dogfish Head since before Dogfish Head. So it’s natural fit for a brewery that makes ‘Analog Beer for the Digital Age’ to be the Official Beer of Record Store Day, a celebration of the unique culture of record stores and the special role they play in their communities.

Now in our second year as the Official Beer of Record Store Day, we’re bringing you another round of unique Dogfish Head offerings to help celebrate this special day. Including...

Beer To Drink Music To
Our liquid tribute to Record Store Day, Beer To Drink Music To 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.

“The enjoyment of a beautiful beer with an amazing album at the same time is an exponentially awesome experience,” Dogfish Head founder and president Sam Calagione says. “This beer is purposely built for this ideal.”

Available now, check the Fish Finder for some near you.

Dogfish Head has created the Official Poster of Record Store Day with the help of our in-house graphic designer, Tim Parrott. The limited-edition poster will be available for free at select stores and bars that sell Dogfish, as well as on Record Store Day at participating music retailers.
