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. Clocking in at 9% ABV and 30 IBUs, Beer To Drink Music To is a golden orange brew with forward notes of toffee, cardamom and cloves and subtle notes of vanilla.
“The enjoyment of a beautiful beer with an amazing album at the same time is an exponentially awesome experience,” Calagione says. “This beer is purposely built for this ideal.”
