Mumford & Sons perform.

Prolific craft brewery Dogfish Head loves two things: suds and rockers. The company merges those passions through its band-partnered brews. To wit: Dogfish Head celebrated Pearl Jam’s 20th Anniversary with its Faithfull Ale brew. The brewery’s Music Series also honors music legends living and dead, like the Grateful Dead American Beauty.

It seems that rock and breweries go hand-in-hand. California’s Lost Abbey is another brewery that pays homage to its rock idols. In 2012, Lost Abbey released one brew every month inspired by anthems, like Track 8, a Bourbon barrel-aged quadruple with Iron Maiden’s “Number of the Beast” as its muse. The band also collaborated with Britain’s Robinsons Brewery to create Trooper, a golden citrus-driven ale named after their 1983 song of the same name.

Across the pond, folk band Mumford & Sons created a craft beer with Harveys of Lewes, Sussex, England’s oldest independent brewery. Dubbed Lewes Stopover Brew, the 4-percent abv ale was made exclusively for the two-day Lewes Music Festival, which the Grammy-award winning band headlined.
