After the flurry of releases surrounding Pearl Jam‘s two-decade run, Eddie Vedder and crew now have something else to boast about: a tribute beer.

According to Exclaim — who was tipped off by Seattle radio station 107.7 The End — the Dogfish Ale Craft Brewery has created the Pearl Jam Twenty Faithfull Ale, a “Belgian-style golden ale” whose name is an obvious reference to the band’s song Faithfull.

“To me, ‘Ten’ [the album] is the perfect example of a record-lover’s-record,” brewery founder and president Sam Calagione said. “As an oft-centered brewery, we believe in celebrating the breadth of our whole portfolio and we feel an affinity for Pearl Jam.”

The company also said it will donate $20,000US to the Nature Conservancy given the band’s environmental track record. And according to the brewery’s official site, the mid-October release of Faithfull Ale will coincide with re-releases of other beverages including the Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew and Hellhound on My Ale, the latter inspired by Robert Johnson.
