Last year the brewers Dogfish Head collaborated with the Sony Legacy label to honor the 40th anniversary of Miles Davis’ landmark jazz-fusion album with their own drinkable version of Bitches Brew. Following the overwhelming success of the beer, which we featured in Strange Brew, the two have teamed up once again to celebrate the 100th birthday of blues legend Robert Johnson with Hellhound On My Ale. The beer, which is a direct nod to the Johnson song Hellhound On My Trail, will be released at the beginning of May.

Here’s the official description from Dogfish Head…

“Hellhound is a super-hoppy ale that hits 100 IBUs in the brewhouse, 10.0 ABV, 10.0 SRM in color, and dry-hopped with 100% centennial hops at a rate of 100 kilos per 100 barrel brew-length. To accentuate and magnify the citrusy notes of the centennial hops (and as a shout out to Robert Johnson’s mentor Blind Lemon Jefferson) we add dried lemon peel and flesh to the whirlpool.”

Finally, the fine folks at NPR Music have upped the ante in a major way with their First Listen series, which just this year alone has given advance listens to the new albums from Fleet Foxes, Paul Simon, Emmylou Harris, Panda Bear and many more. Last night, the site hosted a live audio and video webcast First Listen from Okkervil River. The smart-rock band were invited to perform their new record I Am Very Far, which hits stores on May 10, in its entirety at KUT‘s Cactus Cafe in Austin, Texas. For those of you who may have missed it, the performance is currently available on-demand.
