Finally, a beer with a Dead head on it. Craft brewer Dog Fishhead has developed a pale ale targeted at Dead Heads. American Beauty Imperial Pale Ale will hit shelves in December. The company won favor with Grateful Dead Productions for more than the robust flavor of the new pour made with all American hops and barley. David Lemieux says the deal went down with Sam Calagione's brewery because '...these are really good people and are the type of folks we want to work with.'
In keeping with the spirit of working with one of the original jam bands, the brewery wants input for one additional ingredient for American Beauty - an invitation so certain produce plenty of mind altering substance suggestions that Dogfish Head specifies that the winning ingredient will be one that '...works best in the context of a strong pale ale recipe.'
