This release has sold out

BEFORE THE FIRST BEER WAS CANNED!

We announced this beer on Frank's 80th birthday, December 21st, 2020 and made this 200 case batch available for preorder. Less than a month later we sold out of every can. Thanks everyone for your enthusiasm surrounding this release, we're huge Zappa fans and we're glad we can share this with like minded fans.

Frank Zappa Is On The Can 

ZAPPA HOPS IN THE CAN!

When we first came across “Zappa,” we knew we had to brew a tribute to one of our biggest musical heroes, Frank Zappa – The Grand Wazoo himself! This will be a Limited Release of 200 cases, and sales will be limited to two six-packs per person.

A FITTING TRIBUTE

After many beers, and leafing through our Zappa vinyl catalogs - we ended up with over 50 names. In the end, one stood out as a winner to us and Frank's son Ahmet.

Zappa Hops

The Zappa hop, like the man, has a hugely eclectic style. Published flavor notes have ranged from passion fruit, mint, spicy, savory, fruity cereal, and uh... purple. (Try the beer, you’ll get it). Just like Frank, this hop is one of a kind and awesome.

Label Art & PHOTOS

The Zappa Trust offered up access to a previously unseen photo shoot by John Williams, who is known for the Zappa album covers he created. Fittingly, he also designed the cover for Joe's Garage - which is what our label is inspired by.

BREWED TO SUPPORT THE MUSIC COMMUNITY

We're proud to say that a percentage of all sales from this beer are going to support the music community through these hard times.

"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer."

-Frank Zappa

We’re so proud to have collaborated with the Zappa Trust on this limited release. The family and crew have been a blast to work with!
