Bands And Beer Together Again with Bayside Black

Black IPA
Beer and bands are no stranger to each other. If you’re looking for the crown jewel then try Three Floyds Permanent Funeral via the band Pig Destroyer. Dogfish Head Brewery also offers up some grand salutes to bands and artists including Guided By Voices, Pearl Jam, The Grateful Dead, Miles Davis, and Robert Johnson. A new band is joining the mix.

Bayside, who release their new album, Vacancy, on Aug. 19 via Hopeless Records, have partnered with craft-beer-in-a-can brewery Oskar Blues for a limited edition IPA, Bayside Black.

The beer, which features a malty backbone with bright, citrusy hops, will be limited to 100 barrels and available for a pre-order bundle with the new album via the craftshack website; (availability restricted to participating states). The cans will also be available at Total Wine & More, as well as select venues with a special focus on stores/venues along Bayside’s tour (dates below).

“The challenges of creating a Black IPA is that when creating a recipe, one has to be very careful to balance the hop bitterness and malt bitterness,” Oskar Blues’ Head Brewer at Oskar Blues Brewery Lyons Juice Drapeau explains. “Dark malts can have astringent characteristics to them so the key is to really achieve a clean hop bitterness to compliment the potential malt bitterness. Also, another important aspect of Black IPAs is to layer a variety of crystal malts and dark malts so that the malt character in the beer has a lot of depth and complexity.”
