Received: Calapooia Norman Ale

Here’s an interesting package that came for me yesterday:

Calapooia Norman Ale and music

The new Norman Ale from Calapooia Brewing out of Albany (Oregon); the brewery teamed up with Pacific Northwest band Norman to brew and release this beer (a Northwest Pale Ale) with the release of Norman’s new album, Into the Eventyr, coming out next month.

Obviously beer-and-music collaborations aren’t a new idea, but it’s a cool concept nonetheless and I’m looking forward to listening and review both the album and the beer (together, ideally). I haven’t written about music and beer since way back in 2007 for the ninth Session; should be an interesting exercise!
