Beer and music pairings: 3 of our favorite matches!




Music and beer go hand in hand. Both drinking and enjoying music are sensorial experiences, so the affinity between the two is not surprising.
Enjoying a beer at a show is an absolute classic, while some music is supposedly best enjoyed when slightly tipsy or even completely drunk! Have you ever tried matching your favorite records with a nice brew? Here are some of our favorites records to drink beer to!

“Have you ever tried matching your favorite records with a nice brew?
  • Bruce Springsteen – Born In The USA.

This all-American classic requires all-American beer. Bruce Springsteen managed to hit it big with this album, bringing his music to a global mainstream audience. However, he never transcended his working class origins and humble personality as an artist. Enjoy this album with an iconic American lager: we suggest Narragansett LagerLawnmower LagerDorothy’s New World Lager.


  • Tom Waits – Mule Variations.

Tom Waits is a true mercurial genius, an artist who set out to re-invent himself  frequently, always creating textural and innovative music. One of his best albums, “Mule Variations” is an amazing collection of lo-fi garage, blues, folk and rock. Wait’s cavernous voice and the gritty production aesthetic of the album make for a dark, rich sound, even though there is an intimate soft edge underneath the grittiness. Pair this album with a great aromatic dark stout! What to drink? Toppling Goliath Mornin’ Delight  (Imperial Stout) | Three Floyds Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout (Bourbon Barrel Aged) | Russian River Pliny the Younger (Imperial Stout).


  • D’Angelo & The Vanguard – Black Messiah.

D’Angelo is an acclaimed neo-soul artist who truly revolutionized the way people think of the genre in this day and age. Far from the over-produced electro / pop / soul you hear on the radio, D’Angelo teamed up with classy musicians to create eclectic and forward-thinking records that channel the spirit of greats like Prince or James Brown. Enjoy his recent album, “Black Messiah” with a fruity, aromatic and clear beer, just like a great weissbier! Live Oak Hefe WeizenSide Launch Wheat | Queen City Hefeweizen.
