In honor of all that, and looking forward to checking out “Sage & Spirit” and other Record Store Day releases at Decatur CD on Saturday, American Beauty is this week’s Beer Pick.
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Inc., Delaware
Available in 6-pack 12-ounce bottles
Renewing its collaboration with the Grateful Dead, Dogfish Head has rereleased its American Beauty Pale Ale. Like the 2013 original, its brewed with granola (yes, granola) and “succulent wildflower honey and all-American hops.”
At 6.5 percent alcohol, with a pale gold color and frothy head, it displays a malty, cereal grain essence in the aroma and flavor, along with fruity honey notes, and a lingering bittersweet finish.
Dogfish Head recommends pairing American Beauty with Thai food, jambalaya or frites. I think it would be fun to sip it with a granola bar or some oatmeal cookies.
