COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION Through two decades of epic live performances, ups and downs, breakups and reunions, self-financed basement sessions and major-label releases, there’s been one constant for indie legends Guided by Voices: lots and lots of American lager. To celebrate the band’s independent spirit and the 20th anniversary of the classic album Bee Thousand, Dogfish Head has brewed the bracing but highly quaffable BEER Thousand. This imperial lager includes 10 grains and 10 hop varieties and clocks in at 10% ABV. 10x10x10 = BEER Thousand. No sipper, BEER Thousand looks like a light lager and has much of the light lager recipe DNA but it is amplified like a barleywine. Fleeting fruit notes in the aroma give way to a sweet and malty flavor and a clean, warm finish. It goes down perfectly between barrages of low-fi 90-second jams. "I can't believe it's been 20 years," says GBV frontman Robert Pollard. "But I'll drink to that." SPECIAL RELEASE: We’re doing 1,000 cases of 6 750 ml bottles that will include A record (10 songs recorded June 25, 1994, during the "Insects of Rock" tour, the band's first tour). The rest will be sold in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles. BY THE NUMBERS: 10 grains 2-row pale malt 6-row pale malt Corn Rice Wheat Dark Munich malt Carapils malt Light caramel malt Dark caramel malt Flaked barley 10 hops Warrior CTZ Simcoe Cluster Galena Galaxy Centennial Willamette Cascade Vanguard

    Pours pretty clear golden with a fairly thick and fluffy eggshell head. Crisp, malty aroma is not strong, but promising. Flavor is malty, much bolder than the wan aroma, and surprisingly hoppy, with some fruity hints. Texture is firm and somewhat thick, if not overly fizzy. Dogfish Head, may you brew for Years Thousand - hell, lager than that!

    I picked this up at Wine Gourmet in Roanoke, VA as part of my New Year's line-up. There aren't many true misses (IMHO) from DFH - this is one of them. It just tasted boozy and messy. A messy use of hops and an overall malty mess. Sorry Sam, not a fan of this one.
