Coming this November! Silver Salmon India Pale Lager, a special limited-edition beer, will be packaged exclusively with the new Leftover Salmon album, 25.
For prices and availability, contact your local craft beverage purveyor or use Breckenridge Brewery’s Beer Locator. The album, 25, will feature twenty five previously unreleased live recordings, and will also be available on iTunes and all digital outlets beginning November 27th!
Silver Salmon IPL commemorates the twenty five year anniversaries of both Breckenridge Brewery and Leftover Salmon. This beer was developed collaboratively by the two groups as they discussed the perfect beer for listening to live music. “We thought an India Pale Lager would be a great style because it’s light and refreshing such that you can enjoy more than one, yet there’s plenty of complexity and flavor,” reports Todd Thibault, Culture Czar for Breckenridge Brewery. “It’s the perfect beer for hanging out at a show and celebrating life, music, and Colorado! There’s no fishy aftertaste, we promise!” Adds Greg Garrison, bass player for Leftover Salmon.
Leftover Salmon – Silver Salmon “25” – Beer and New Live Album!
The paths of Leftover Salmon and Breckenridge Brewery came together in 2012 when they threw a street party in celebration of the band’s Aquatic Hitchhiker album launch. The first of their beer and music collaborations was in 2013. Leftover Salmon created four original songs that were pre-released exclusively through Breckenridge Brewery’s 12-pack Sampler Packs on Artist Series coasters. The relationship has prospered and the groups continue to collaborate on projects like Silver Salmon IPL.
Both Breckenridge Brewery and Leftover Salmon started out with humble beginnings in small Colorado mountain towns. As both have blossomed and earned national acclaim, each of these institutions have become masters of their own crafts.
Looking back over the past twenty five years of rootsy string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Formed New Year’s Eve in 1989, the Colorado slamgrass pioneers took their form of aggressive bluegrass to rock and roll bars at a time when it wasn’t so common, which helped Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jamgrass genre. High Country, Leftover Salmon’s most recent release, shows off the full palette of artistic diversity including lightning-powered pick n’ grin, to thoughtful blues balladry, and everything in between.
Breckenridge Brewery was founded in 1990 in Breckenridge, Colorado. In the past two decades Breckenridge Brewery has grown from a small 3,000-barrels-a-year brewpub to one of the most successful craft beer and restaurant companies in the nation. It now handcrafts more than 64,000 barrels of fresh beer annually and owns and operates five brewpubs and ale houses in the state of Colorado.
Between Breckenridge Brewery’s 64,000 barrels of handcrafted beer made fresh each year, to Leftover Salmon’s delicious music, whimsical cross genre creations, consistent touring schedule, and progressive mindset Silver Salmon IPL is sure to be a game changer, by two of the biggest game changers of their kind.
