To celebrate that independent spirit and the 20th anniversary of the band’s classic album Bee Thousand, Dogfish Head has brewed BEER Thousand. This imperial lager, chosen to echo the copious amounts of lager that fueled GBV’s garage recordings, is brewed with 10 grains and 10 hop varieties, and clocks in at 10% ABV.
10x10x10 = BEER Thousand.
No sipper, BEER Thousand looks like a light lager but is amplified like a barleywine. Subtle strawberry and tropical banana notes in the aroma aroma give way to a sweet and malty flavor and a clean, warm finish. Scarily drinkable for its size and demeanor, this one’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. It goes down perfectly between barrages of low-fi 90-second jams.
Draft only. Limited release.
