Default Brew tunes and you...

What are your "brew tunes?" A comment in the "Brew day" thread made me wonder.

Last time I brewed, I played hard rock tunes like ACDC, Limp Bizkit, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the like for my IPA.

The Chocolate porter got a dose of 70's one hit wonders like Player's "Baby come back" and Pablo Cruise's "Love will find a way."

And the Bass clone got to listen to a whole lot of Phish, Keller Williams, Trey Anastasio, Ben Harper and Sam Phillips.

What puts you in the best mood to brew?

It's not an official brew day unless I hear ZZ Top's "Mexican Blackbird".
It's an awesome song. I'm planning on naming a beer after it someday.

That's exactly what I was thinking....I want to make a dark lager with the yeast strain from Corona....MEXICAN BLACKBIRD....
Take the name, I certainly don't own it--in fact we should come up with a recipe together and test it out--see what we can come up with!

i used the White Labs Platinum Series Mexican Lager Yeast for my cerveza. I KNEW I SHOULDA BOTTLED THAT YEAST CAKE AND SAVED IT!!!!!!!!

good idea........make a swarzbier type maybe.........mexican lager yeast.........maybe some high octane stuff???????
i'll just stick with my Cerveza Mayo for this one. i don't think it's worthy of the "Mexican Blackbird Especial Cerveza" name. we could call it punta for short! :~O

How about (other free names...)

Mexicalirona
Mexirona (Mexican Corona)
Tejas Bordello (my favorite)
MexiTea
any title with "Tumbleweed" in it (too many "Lone Wolf" and "Armadillo" names out there already)


I named my Chili Pepper beer "Deguello" many years ago. I'll be doing another batch this year when the peppers come up in the garden.

"Deguello" is the name of the song played during the rebellion by the Texican traitors at the Alamo. They were offerred "No Quarter" by Generalissimo Santa Anna.

Also a ZZ Top LP name.

When I was thinking about doing that beer and naming it that, I was laughing to myself about making it a chile beer and taking the line from the song about "she's hot as a pepper but smooth as a mexican brew"....That song just screams to me, MAKE THIS BEER!!!!!!!!

LOL...Good stuff guys....
