We don’t even drink much soda, but I just had to get some of these for my wife…

Anyway the wind blows
it don’t matter to me

A continuation from this post 6+ months ago… Lagunitas Brewery’s Frank Zappa beer #5… is in my hands (but not quite my mouf yet)…

Behold, the Cruisin’ with Ruben and the Jets Ale*… a tribute to the 40 year anniv of the album of the same name.  It’s probably my least favorite Zappa album, but Hot Rats followed shortly (and that one is superb).  *- as noted in the Brewed for Thought blog about this beer, he had this as a chocolate pepper stout.  My version is an ale.  I’m disappointed as the chocolate pepper stouts sounds fantastic, but I think I’ll live.

Update: it is a Chocolate Pepper Stout… I wonder why the label says “ale” in several places and “stout” is nowhere to be found.

Picture provided by Brewed for Thought, as I’m lazy and it’s busy season for me at work:

I’m looking forward to enjoying this on the weekend…

FZ beer 1 was Freak Out! Ale
FZ beer 2 was Kill Ugly Radio Ale (aka for the album Absolutely Free)
FZ beer 3 was Lumpy Gravy Ale
FZ beer 4 was We’re Only In It for the Money Triple Ale

FZ beer #6 should be Uncle Meat, by my count… we shall see.

A continuation from this post 4+ months ago… Lagunitas Brewery’s Frank Zappa beer #4… is in my hands (and mouf)…

Behold, the We’re Only In It For the Money Belgian-style Triple Ale… a tribute to the 40 year anniv of the album of the same name… WOIIFTM was actually FZ album #3 (and Lumpy Gravy was #4). Beer crafters got a date wrong? Too much beer on the job? I forgive ‘em… :)

Yum. Triple yum, actually. And, yes, the cover of the album (and beer) is a spoof of Sgt. Pepper’s.

FZ beer 1 was Freak Out! Ale
FZ beer 2 was Kill Ugly Radio Ale (aka for the album Absolutely Free)
FZ beer 3 was Lumpy Gravy Ale

FZ beer #5 should be Cruisin’ with Ruben and the Jets, by my count… we shall see.

Lagunitas Brewery’s Frank Zappa beer 3… is in my hands (and mouf)…

Behold, the Lumpy Gravy Ale… a tribute to the 40 year anniv of the album of the same name (sans “ale”)…

FZ beer 4 (We’re Only in it for the Money) comes out in June… at Frank’s level of output, this’ll be 2 specially crafted beer tributes a year. Huzzah!!

FZ beer 1 was Freak Out!, and 2 was Kill Ugly Radio (aka Absolutely Free). I snagged 1 back in 2006… I totally missed 2. I need to track that shiznit down.
