Fab: Moog Filtered Ale from Asheville Brewing Company + Bönus Moog Mix

[UPDATE 6.4 –> Now available for purchase at Bruisin’ Ales]

This limited edition brew from Asheville Brewing Company will benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

When you drink this in your egg-shaped chair with built-in speakers, rocking out to my Moog Mix below,  take additional comfort in knowing proceeds will support the Foundation’s interactive educational programs to teach science through music—as well as the eventual creation of a Moogseum. Yes, a Moogseum. Full story at Craft Beer News »
