Has it really been 40 years since Miles Davis released his groundbreaking jazz-rock album Bitches Brew? No doubt Sam Calagione, who is around 41, doesn't remember the release either, but Calagione's Dogfish Head craft beer is celebrating in grand style with a Bitches Brew brew. Rising to the occasion, Bitches Brew is "a bold, dark beer that's a fusion of three threads imperial stout and one thread honey beer with gesho root, a gustatory analog to Miles's masterpiece," according to Dogfish Head's blog, which goes on to note that it pairs well with a spicy curry or chili. Calagione goes on to confess that he got the album after college and listened to it while he was crafting Dogfish Head's business plan. Good thing he wasn't listening to Goat's Head Soup.
