SUNDAY 8TH MAYis the birthday of robert johnson,the king of the delta blues. todays blues owes so much to this man,i think every blues lover should dig out some of his music and dedicate a few hours to his memory. if you dont have any of his recordings,try some of the many covers from clapton,rolling stones,early fleetwood mac,keb mo,john mayall,canned heat,led zeppelin,white stripes,johnny winter,
even ben harper,tedeschi-trucks,lucinda williams,bob dylan and government mule have covered his songs.

i prefer PETER GREEN-THE ROBERT JOHNSON SONGBOOK.
for a guy who only recorded 29 songs,he certainly got some recognition from his peers. celebrate his music.!!!

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

rambling on your mind

I will celebrate in the air flying back to Mongolia - where I will raise a glass with youngbill, not of malted milk but with the local fermented mare's milk

No - actually I am lying about the last part - it is called airrag, is unlike anything I have ever tasted and is undrinkable!

I'll raise a glass of another kind of malt :)

Me and The Devil can't make up our minds whether to take the 32:20 down to the Crossroads or back to Sweet Home Chicago.

I was planning to, but progress may be slowed by the stones in my passway and the road that seems dark as night.

Don't even get me started on those pesky hellhounds on my trail!

Hellhound On My Ale

2011 marks the 100th birthday of Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson who, according to legend, sold his soul down at the crossroads in a midnight bargain and changed music forever. Working again with our friends at Sony Legacy (yup, the same folks we did our Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew with), Dogfish Head pays tribute to this blues legend by gettin the hellhounds off his trail and into this finely-crafted ale.

Hellhound is a super-hoppy ale that hits 100 IBUs in the brewhouse, 10.0 ABV, 10.0 SRM in color, and dry-hopped with 100% centennial hops at a rate of 100 kilos per 100 barrel brew-length. Can you tell we at Dogfish are stoked for this mighty musical centennial? To accentuate and magnify the citrusy notes of the centennial hops (and as a shout out to Robert Johnsons mentor Blind Lemon Jefferson) we add dried lemon peel and flesh to the whirlpool.

Heading out for the East Coast / Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through, / Tangled up in blues.
