Move over, Champagne wishes and caviar dreams, and make room for these celebrity brews.
American BadAss Beer, starring Kid Rock
Rocker and unofficial Detroit PR spokesman Kid Rock unleashed American BadAss Beer in the U.S. last year, infusing the lager with a spiritual dose of “Bawitdaba” (da bang a dang diggy diggy) so you can enjoy it “All Summer Long”—or winter.
Big Hurt Beer, starring Frank “The Big Hurt” Thomas
As one of baseball’s biggest stars, The Big Hurt crushed more than 500 home runs, became the first player to win Silver Slugger awards at two different positions and ended up on a short list of players to take home consecutive MVP titles. An even shorter list? Ex-ballplayers with their own malt liquor brand.
Land Shark Lager, starring Jimmy Buffett
No doubt, this Jimmy Buffett and Anheuser-Busch collaboration is the chillest beer on the coral reef. Need proof? It goes well with everything, from classic Buffett hits like “Why Don’t We Get Drunk?” to exotic fare like cheeseburgers in paradise.
Churchkey Pilsner, starring Adrian Grenier
While Vince, Turtle, Vince’s brother and that leprechaun may think twice about tossing back these retro flat-top cans at a Champagne-filled Hollywood pool bash, it wouldn’t be unlikely to see “Entourage” actor Adrian Grenier sipping his brand inside a hip Brooklyn watering hole—one you’ve likely never heard of.
PLUS: The musician-turned-brewer is a rare thing indeed, but London-based Signature Brew is bridging the gap between sweet jams and bitter beer, one batch at a time. To date, the company’s produced three musician-inspired beers with the likes of The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, The Rifles and Professor Green, who each picked their preferred flavor profile after a series of private tastings. Cue sad, wailing guitar solo: Currently, the beer’s available only in the U.K.
