The great and generous Bill Zurat deposited this on my desk earlier this week, and I laughed for about half an hour. Right now I'm drinking it. It is an IPA made by the Lagunitas Brewing Company (Petaluma Ca.) called "Freak Out!", honoring the 40th anniversary (in 2006) of the Mothers' big freaky debut.
What did Frank Zappa have to say about beer? Basically that it made people militaristic nincompoops who play football, march, and cheer a lot. No doubt, when they're drinking soda-beer made out of corn syrup and sugar. Regarding Zappa, I am a fan, but it's right to remember that he was a cranky cranky man with a low regard for subtlety and a whole lotta not nice to say.
And how does this beer taste? As you'd expect it to taste: bitter. Not that I've got a problem with that.
