Dogfish Head American Beauty Art Updated for Dead’s 50th

Dogfish Head American Beauty 2015

Dogfish Head American Beauty, the brewery’s tribute, and inspired by, The Grateful Dead, is getting an artwork overhaul in honor of the band’s 50th anniversary.

The imperial pale ale combines American hops and an ingredient not seen in beer often – granola. Dead fan (and beer fan) Thomas Butler shared his favorite concert story that lead to the granola choice.

Inside this bottle. Your miracle ticket awaits. We called Americas Beauty, an imperial Pale Ale inspired by the Grateful Dead. The best way to capture 30 years, 100 albums, 1,500 shows? Let the loyal fans drive the recipe. Among thousands of suggestions, granola was top. It was the main course in millions of parking lot meals and is newsstand toasty complement to the all-American hops and barley. There was something different about a Dead show. Whether you saw one or 103, you felt it but you knew it wouldn’t last forever. If only you could have bottled it …

Dogfish Head American Beauty is slated to make a seasonal appearance again in May, 2015.

    I’m trying to figure out what the 30 years is. The album is from 1970. Maybe Sam went to his first Dead show in 1983?

    Nice label re-design. The bears are ok on the gals tank tops and bumper stickers, but seriously- they’re the silliest of GD logos….
