(Ithaca, NY) – This hit my inbox just a half hour ago.
Some may recall the beer that Sierra Nevada brewed called FOAM for a Phish fest back in 2009. What is it about craft beer and Phish that just seems to go together?
Per the email:
Ithaca Beer Co. is chill to announce plans for another one-off beer coming out early June called Stash.
No coincidence, the aptly named Stash, is an homage to one of Ithaca Beer’s favorite jam bands, Phish. Also, no coincidence, Phish is coming to Watkins Glen International (practically our backyard) July 1-3, 2011. While you won’t likely see our homegrown tribute ale on the raceway grounds because it’s not The Official beer of Super Ball 9, you will find it on draft at a slew of craft accounts around the Finger Lakes leading up to the festival.
Stash will be a one-off India Pale Ale weighing in around 6.0% ABV. If your mouth isn’t watering already, you’re about to become a drooling mess when we tell you Chief plans to pull the dankest hops from his “hophead stash” for this IPA.
Available in draft only and VERY limited in distribution. All Stash inquiries should be directed to Ithaca Beer at #(607) 273-0766. Closer to the date, a list of places you can find Stash will be made available.
To find out more about this “Sensational. Mind-blowing. Fantabulous” Super Ball 9, check out the official phish website at www.phish.com …oh wait, we didn’t officially say that!
