Sublime is releasing a beer this year | Who taught you these new tricks?
It’s been 25 years since the release of Sublime’s debut album “40 oz. to Freedom,” and love the album or not, you still probably know the choruses to most of the songs by heart. (I personally still get “What I Got”—though that’s off Sublime’s 1996 self-titled album—stuck in my head every time I read the phrase “early in the morning,” and now you will too. You’re welcome.)
To mark the anniversary, Sublime co-founders Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson, manager Dave Kaplan and Troy Holmes, widow of Sublime’s former lead singer Bradley Nowell, teamed up with San Diego brewery AleSmith for a Vienna lager riff called Sublime Mexican Lager. It will hit stores nationally in June in six-packs of 12-ounce cans, with a limited release of 40-ounce bottles at locations to be determined. SOURCE: DraftMag.com
What wonderful news! If there has ever been a beer for backyard bbqs and beach day drinking, this is the beer. I can’t wait to see the label. Sublime has always been connected to some local LBC artists and this brew should be no different. Point me in the direction of those 40s and send me on my way.
