Published Sep 06, 2011Sometimes after a long, hard work week, you want nothing more than to just grab a cold one and toss on your favourite tunes. Aiming to kill two birds with one stone, Ontario-based brewery Beau's All Natural is just starting up a new singles series packaging seven-inches with a pack of suds.
According to a press release, the inaugural editions comes out this October and "has been dubbed Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde in honour of both the impending Hallowe'en season and the ghoulish work of visual artist Dirty Donny Gillies," whose spooky art has previously been commissioned by Queens of the Stone Age and Metallica, among others.
The slab of vinyl that comes with the two different beers, the malty Dr. Jekyll and the spicy Mr. Hyde, contains four unreleased tracks from some varied Ontario outfits. Toronto punks the Flatliners, Teenage X and the beer brewer's theme song fill out the first side, while the folksy Elliott Brood and garage unit White Wires take turns on the flip. You can check the tracklisting below.
The limited seven-inch is being pressed on eerily ectoplasmic translucent purple vinyl. The package will be issued in a run of 5,000. While you'll be able to head on over to the award-winning company's brewery in Vankleek Hill, ON to grab a copy, you can also order yourself a ciopy on Beau's website or call 1-866-585-BEER (2337).
