In the Mood for Bitches Brew?


To celebrate the 40 years that have passed since the release of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew an American brewery - Dogfish Head Brewery - have produced an ale appropriately entitled Bitches Brew - read about it here.
I wondered idly if there were any British beers with a jazz connection and, lo and behold, last night the Bridge Hotel included In The Mood complete with a pic of Glenn in their impressive array of ales! Okay, some might say Glenn Miller wasn't 100% jazz whilst others might say the same about Miles Davis!
In fact, In the Mood was smooth and tasty - possibly brewed from the same sugar cane as clarinet reeds - like listening to Moonlight Serenade on a starry night. However, like Moonlight Serenade, too many plays/pints and it becomes a bit sacchariferous. It did sell well as by interval time they had none left.
Any more jazz related beers?
Lance.
