Various Brewers have been inspired by the music of the Grateful Dead From the unique sense of community, art work and artistic freedom of the Dead scene. Many BA member tags include something Dead related...share a story of your time at a show, beer related or not! My first and only (with Jerry) show was Highgate, VT 6/15/95. One and done for me, but I've been enjoying the scene ever since. I was 16 in the summer of '95....and it just so happens experiencing Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for tge first time that summer changed my drinking habits for the better. Full circle.
