VIDEO: The Eyebrows Set to Perform in Conjunction with Birdsong Beer Release

New Red Dress ESB Hemp a nod to local trio

Posted By on Thu, Oct 26, 2017 at 11:40 AM

Charlotte rock trio The Eyebrows are now the latest local musicians to be honored by Birdsong Brewing Company with a brew of their own: Red Dress, an ESB Hemp style beer. The brewery will tap Red Dress this evening in the lead-up to a 7 p.m. Eyebrows performance that will surely include the song the brew was named after.

In the video (above), released earlier this month, Eyebrows frontman Jay Garrigan rocks his own little red dress (or his wife's, rather), alongside Charlotte-based drag performers Kiana Layne, Macy Alexander, Andrea Carlisle, Aurora Carlisle and Skylar Michele-Monet. The song is a single from the band's upcoming full-length album, Volume, expected in 2018.

As for the beer, an ESB — which stands for Extra Special Bitter — is an English-style beer that, despite its name, is not all that bitter if balanced well. Red Dress is brewed with toasted hemp seeds, which "provide a toasty and slightly nutty flavor that pair well with specialty malts and a dry finish."

“I love English beer, and an ESB is one of my favorites," says Eyebrows drummer Shawn Lynch. "A few years ago Birdsong made a short run of ESB and I was lucky enough to try some. I’ve basically been asking them to make it again ever since, and it looks like I’ve finally got my wish.”

The beer taps at 5 p.m. tonight and The Eyebrows take the stage at 7 p.m.
