Given the title of this post, you probably thought this was going to be another rant about InBev and Anheuser-Busch. But it’s not. It’s about the latest release commemorating all of Frank Zappa’s albums by Lagunitas Brewing, which will debut next week. This is the fourth Zappa album beer done by Lagunitas, and it commemorates the 40th anniversary of the release of “We’re Only In It For the Money,” which was famous as much for its cover as the music on the record. The artwork consisted of a parody of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band. The beer inside the 22 oz. bottles is a Belgian-style Triple Ale. Like the three others before it, it will be available for a limited time and in relatively small quantities.

Not only should you buy Lagunitas beer for their entertaining labels, but their beer positively rocks! This latest tribute to Frank is a clear departure from their usual hop-charactered ales, which makes it even more special. Be sure to check out Lagunitas’ “Lucky 13” and “Gnarlywine” while you’re at it! Deeeeelicious!
Sorry to nitpick, because I really appreciate that you are behind these beers, but We’re Only In It For The Money was not a two-disc record, it was one disc. But these brews are fantastic! I’m hoping to get a bottle signed by Dweezil when I see Zappa Plays Zappa this weekend.
