Beer and music have always been good companions. Fairhope Brewing Company combines the best of both worlds with their “Brewsician Collaboration” series of beer, which captures the essence of local musical acts and infuses it into a small-batch beer. Grayson Capps was given the honor of the inaugural batch of Brewsician beer with Lil’ Poison Brown Ale. Now, the eclectic Underhill Family Orchestra has inspired the brewers at Fairhope Brewing Company to create Stories of Appalachia Porter.

According to the “Behind the Brewsic,” the members of Underhill are big fans of craft beer, which made this pairing perfect. The band’s namesake beer is classified as a smoked porter. Beer fans should expect a “dark and roasty” taste with a “distinct Beechwood smoke flavor.”

As the crowd imbibes this brand new brew, Underhill Family Orchestra will regale the crowd with their original sounds that were one of the highlights of the 2014 Hangout Fest. The event comes with one caveat, however. Fairhope Brewing is only making 10 gallons of Stories of Appalachia Porter, so Underhill fans should drink it while they can.
