The craft beer company is teaming up with the Grateful Dead on a pale ale made with barley and domestic hops, and in much the same way that Ommegang is getting medieval on its forthcoming Game of Thrones–themed Belgian blonde ale recipe, Dogfish Head has been searching high and low for one last ingredient to bring out that definitive deadheadishness of its American Beauty release. Founder Sam Calagione is turning to the public (of legal drinking age) for ideas, and the winner will be invited to the Delaware brewery next year to tinker with the test batch. Entries are due at midnight tonight, so check out the video ahead, and N.B.: The secret ingredient of this beer must be legal to consume in the United States.
