I lived in San Francisco for about a year, and when I first moved there at the end of 2000, Deltron 3030′s debut album was my soundtrack. I remember seeing the band perform live on a bill with Blackalicious. Seriously one of the best shows of my life.
When Dogfish announced they were collaborating with Dan the Automator on a beer and limited edition vinyl release, I knew I had to get it. I picked up the “boxed set” at Bierkraft in Brooklyn. It contains 6 large champagne style of the beer, a copy of the vinyl, and special recipes by people like David Chang. It is a beer/cider hybrid, made with Fuji apples, roasted farro from Anson Mills in South Carolina, cayenne peppers and fresh cilantro which give the beer a fun extra kick once it goes down. This is a great boxed set worthy of the music that it inspired.
