Sub Pop Beer?

Those of you who know me on the message board, know that I'm an amateur beer aficionado.  So, it may not be a surprise to everyone that this one popped across my desktop.

Elysian Brewery in Seattle is paying homage to the label that brought us Green River with a craft brewed pale ale.  If you can find it, why not give it a try?
Loser Pale Ale is brewed in honor of Sub Pop Records – Seattle’s ground-breaking Independent Record Label which is well known for first signing artists such as Mudhoney, Nirvana and Soundgarden back in the grunge era. While the music scene has changed over the years, Sub Pop remains one of the premier record labels in Seattle and continues to showcase talented artists across the country. This being the case, our goal was to make Loser a standout act – the prevalent hops featured in this beer are the unique and not widely available Sorachi Ace hops. This hop variety originated in Japan and is currently only grown one place in the United States – the Gamache Family Hop Farms in Yakima, Washington.
