Dogfish Head Announces the Release of Bitches Brew

In April Dogfish Head announced that in honor of the 40th anniversary of the original release of Miles Davis’s remarkable and mind bending album Bicthes Brew, that they would be brewing a beer to signify the time altering fusion of music that Miles brought to people all over the globe. On Monday more details were released about this eagerly awaited special edition brew.

Dogfish Head’s Bitches Brew is a fusion of three individual imperial stouts and one honey beer brewed with gesho root. It will come in around 9% abv with only 38 IBUs. I would expect this to be a big, rich and creamy imperial stout with added sweetness and touches of syrup. Sam Calagione, Dogfish founder and president, describes it as “the ultimate partner for chili or spicy curry chicken” and best enjoyed “sipped cool, not cold, from a snifter or red wine glass while listening to the Bitches Brew album.”

On June 5th at Savor in Washington DC, event participants were given a special treat being able to sample the beer for the very first time. It will be bottled and sold in late August 2010. See the official website to sign up for up to date release information and details.
