Dogfish Head's Pearl Jam Beer, Faithfull Ale, Commemorates Band's 20th Anniversary

In celebration of Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary as a band and its debut album, "Ten," Dogfish Head brewery has created Faithfull ale, a Belgian-style golden ale with black currants to be released in mid-October.

"To me, 'Ten' is the perfect example of a record-lover’s-record. The whole thing rocks," says Dogfish Head President & Founder Sam Calagione. In support of the Pearl Jam's commitment to putting music before commerce, according to the press release, Dogfish is donating $20,000 to The Nature Conservancy.

Along with the release of this 7% ABV beer (available in all states where Dogfish is sold), the off-centered brewery is rereleasing the Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew and the Robert Johnson shoutout Hellhound on My Ale.

Dogfish Head also recently teamed up with Google to launch the Belgian Dubbel-style beer URKontinent.

With all the discussion about how food is the new rock, and all the musicians that are starting their own wine brands, the market could be ripe for more band-beer combos.
