Rev Room to serve up some Brotherhood

Music and beer have always gone hand-in-hand, but one recent trends in craft beer is musicians working with craft breweries to create their own unique brews. Artists from all genres, including Jimmy Buffett, Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden, Clutch, Kid Rock and Hanson, have gotten in on the trend. In my experience, the quality of these beers is surprisingly good, as most artists and breweries aren't willing to just stamp their seal of approval on any old cheap lager. They all want something special.

When Chris Robinson Brotherhood stops by Rev Room on Friday, Oct 17, you'll not only be able to experience the sights and sounds of the Black Crowes' frontman's side project while the Crowes are on "indefinite hiatus," you'll also be able to buy a special beer that the band partnered with San Francisco's Anchor Brewing Company to create.

The beer is called "Brotherhood Steam" and is inspired by the brewing tradition of Anchor's legendary flagship, Anchor Steam Beer. Brotherhood Steam Beer is brewed with its own unique recipe. A distinct malt bill gives the beer its copper color, and dry-hopping with Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops adds aromatic hints of citrus and mint. The result is a smooth, full-bodied malt flavor with a lingering, fresh hop finish.

Currently the beer is selling exclusively at the venues where The Chris Robinson Brotherhood are playing, but there are plans for this beer to be packaged and released nationwide later in 2014.  Billed as the "Worlds First Gig Beer," it's sold out at every show where it's been available at so far. 

Rev Room owner Chris King tells me they are going to sell it starting Sunday, Oct. 12 in Revolution Restaurant for $3.50 per pint and continue through the show on Friday.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
