3 + 3 November: Brews + Music

Welcome to 3 + 3 for November in Beer – 3 awesome new tracks you need to be listening to right now, with three amazing brews to enjoy them with.

Ibeyi’s “Deathless” + Red Hook’s Winterhook Dark Ale

THE SONG

French-Cuban twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz team up with super-producer and saxophonist Kamasi Washington (of “To Pimp a Butterfly” fame) to bring us this triumphant meditation on spirituality, divinity, identity and civil rights. Fiercely beautiful.

THE BREW

Seattle’s Red Hook Brewery has been bringing us game-changing beer since the early 80s. This month, we’re pleased to turn you on to their seasonal Winterhook offering. It’s rich with roasted flavor, replete with pine and caramel notes and finishes with a crisp dryness. Get into this beer!

Honey Dijon’s “808 State of Mind” + Kona Brewing’s Pipeline Porter

THE SONG

This Chicago-house-club-meets-Ibiza-chill-party opus is undeniable. DJ and producer Honey Dijon gets together with Shaun J. Wright and Alinka to give us something that is at once viciously danceable and covered in a frosty cool. Sound impossible? Turn it up.

THE BREW

We’re pairing this track with the Pipeline Porter from Hawaii’s Kona Brewing Company. This seasonal is nothing short of what they call it: “Liquid Aloha.” Earthy and complex, it takes lush roasted notes, wraps them in a Kona coffee blanket and presents it in a gorgeous dark-chocolate-colored package. Perfect for brightening those winter nights.

Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett’s “Over Everything” + Appalachian Mountain Brewery’s Boone Creek Blonde

THE SONG

Vile and Barnett… Kurt and Courtney… A match made in heaven. This works so well simply because these two songwriter / storytellers share so much -- from their reflexive honesty to their ever-present wry smiles, to their indie hearts. This jangling, sprawling track is now.

THE BREW

North Carolina’s Appalachian Mountain Brewery is about community, sustainability and philanthropy. That’s really cool, but alone won’t get you featured here. You’ve got to have great beer. Their Boone Creek Blonde Ale, a crisp, bright, zesty, citrusy wonder with a wildflower honey finish is exactly that. Enjoy this blonde beauty by the fire.
