According to Exclaim -- who was tipped off by Seattle radio station 107.7 The End -- the Dogfish Ale Craft Brewery has created the Pearl Jam Twenty Faithfull Ale, a "Belgian-style golden ale" whose name is an obvious reference to the band's song Faithfull.
"To me, 'Ten' [the album] is the perfect example of a record-lover's-record," brewery founder and president Sam Calagione said. "As an oft-centered brewery, we believe in celebrating the breadth of our whole portfolio and we feel an affinity for Pearl Jam."
The company also said it will donate $20,000US to the Nature Conservancy given the band's environmental track record. And according to the brewery's official site, the mid-October release of Faithfull Ale will coincide with re-releases of other beverages including the Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew and Hellhound on My Ale, the latter inspired by Robert Johnson.

The brew -- which is being sent across the U.S. -- comes on the heels of KISS releasing official band wine (KISS Zin Fire and California Zinfandel) and beer (KISS Destroyer) late last month. And earlier in 2011 AC/DC partnered with an Australian winery to release four different wines: Back in Black Shiraz, You Shook Me Along Night Long Moscato, Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon and Hells Bells Sauvignon Blanc.
One can only hope that the Who eventually come out with a strong moonshine-like concoction aptly dubbed Who Are You?
