Not many rock bands get their own beer, but when you’ve been around 20 years like Pearl Jam, you’re no ordinary band. Dogfish Head brewery’s new Faithfull Ale celebrates the 20th anniversary of the release of Pearl Jam’s album Ten.
Dogfish Head President & Founder Sam Calagione says, “To me, Ten is the perfect example of a record-lover’s-record. The whole thing rocks. As an off-centered brewery, we believe in celebrating the breadth of our whole portfolio and we feel an affinity for Pearl Jam a long-player band in a singles-obsessed world.” Dogfish Head also finds inspiration in Pearl Jam’s ethics, community-building and commitment to putting music before commerce. In recognition of this refreshing approach, Dogfish is donating $20,000 to The Nature Conservancy to aid in its efforts to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth.
Dogfish Head is also re-releasing its previous collaborations with Sony Legacy: the Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew and the Robert Johnson shoutout Hellhound on My Ale. All three collaborations will be available this month and the brewery plans to “send Faithfull Ale to all states in which we currently do business, pending each state’s approval.”
