THIS FRIDAY at 1pm, just in time for another year of Phish at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, we will be releasing not one or two, but THREE beers in cans, including two brand new beers and two Phish-themed beers! While each beer will see its own individual post on social media leading up to the release, here are the basics:
“Suspended in the Trees” is an unfiltered double IPA collboration, 3 years in the making, with our good friends from @suspendedinthetrees!
“Thick Strawberry Goo” is our fan-favorite smoothie-style Berliner Weisse with over 420 pounds of strawberry and raspberry, and a touch of Madagascar vanilla beans and lactose. Not to mention, another extraordinary label with art from @bfg.artistry!
“Blue Light Rain” is an unfiltered German pilsner. Enough said!
More details on each beer will be posted on Instagram and Facebook in the coming days, and we hope to see you all down at Dick’s for another Labor Day Weekend. Taboot!
Live music by the Ridnell Brothers. Free.
”Brothers Jon and Dave Ridnell share a long musical history going back to the early 1980s. Between the two of them they have written hundreds of original songs, inspired by blues, jazz, funk, bluegrass, and bossa nova, and performed thousands of shows across the United States and internationally. With Jon based in Nederland, Colorado and Dave in the San Francisco Bay Area, they remain mutual influences on each other. Ridnell Brothers reunite in August for a string of shows in Nederland and Boulder, Colorado and their first joint recording session.
Jon has been a staple on the Nederland music scene for years.. He performs on average 200 shows a year playing originals, jazz, bluegrass, and funk. He has worked with renown artists such as Henry Butler, Fred Wesley, Dave Jonnston of Yonder Mountain String Band and Daryl Anger. He currently performs in New Family Dog with his bassist son Miles. Their latest release Cherish is Jon’ 15th to date and features bluegrass legend Sally Van Meter and jazz pianist Art Lande.
Dave recently released the album Sunny Day, the debut of Coelho & Ridnell, his musical partnership with Brazilan Chico Coelho. It has just been released by an independent label in Japan, where they are to tour in late October including at the famous Live Magic Festival.”
