The first time that I tried Dog Fish Head beer was on a trip out to L.A. for the Hot Peas and Butta x Funky Sole party. While staying at my boy Mixxxie's crib (who happens to be a beer connesieur) he introduced Elroy Jenkins and myself the a few different selections include the Dog Fish Head. I've only had it a few times since then but it looks like their doing something special for the 40th Anniversary of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew.
The perfect liquid accompaniment to Miles Davis?
Perhaps not perfect, but inspired nonetheless, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head has brewed up something special for the 40th anniversary of Bitches Brew. At 9% ABV, the beer fuses an imperial stout with a thread honey beer laced with gesho root. Made for slow sipping, it also works as an accompaniment to spicy meals.
