Dogfish Head, Grateful Dead Productions Working On American Beauty Pale Ale

Grateful Dead Productions and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery will be soliciting ideas for the final ingredient of their new American Beauty pale ale. The beer is expected to hit the market in October of 2013, but before that can happen the brewers need to know how they’ll make it. Suggestions for the new brew’s final ingredient will be taken online in December. Grateful Dead Productions and Dogfish Head will then pick the ingredient based on how well they think it will work in a strong pale ale recipe. The recipe currently includes all-American hops, barley and the soon-to-be decided final ingredient. The American Beauty pale ale will be the next beer in Dogfish Head’s Music Series, which includes the Miles Davis-inspired “Bitches Brew,” the Pearl Jam-inspired “Faithful Ale” and the Robert Johnson tribute, “Hellhoud On My Ale.”
