Ali Shirazinia — better known to the techno world by his Dubfire alias and the house music community for the history he’s made as half of Grammy-winning Deep Dish — has collaborated with nomadic U.S.-based craft brewery Stillwater Artisanal to produce Extra Loud, a limited-edition India pale saison ale brewed with sake rice.
Extra Loud is a hat trick of citra, galaxy and simcoe that clocks in at a comfortable 7 percent abv.
“Passions for gastronomy and studies in sake eventually saw us crossing paths outside of the club and teaming up,” explained Strumke — who is also a DJ/producer — on Instagram.
In related news, Boston-bred house duo Soul Clap collaborated this month on Back 2 Love with New York City brewery Finback to celebrate the release of their new full-length album, WTF (World Transformation Force), released on Fool’s Gold.
Japanese techno icon Ken Ishii has been working for several years with Tokyo-based Rise & Win Brewing.
As die-hard fans of both electronic and craft beer, we’re loving this trend.
