When a 20-something Sam Calagione was hammering out a business plan for a brewery that used nontraditional ingredients, he was fueled by the music of Miles Davis, Guided by Voices and The Replacements.
"Our brewery has been obsessed with music since before we opened our doors," says Sam. "And these days, anytime I'm in the brewhouse, there's something playing."
Inspired by Record Store Day, as well as the unique culture and special role that record stores play in their communities, it only made sense for a brewery that makes 'Analog Beer for the Digital Age' to be the Official Beer!
Now in our fourth year as the Official Beer of Record Store Day, we've teamed up with old and new friends alike to bring you another round of exceptional offerings. Everything from nationwide events to a collaboration with The Flaming Lips, and a whole new liquid tribute in the form of Dragons & YumYums!
