There are beer and cheese pairings. Beer and cookie pairings. Beer and snack pairings. Now there’s beer and music pairings.

Yes, you heard that correctly. Our friends at Hop Culture put together a list of their top vinyls they’re listening to and the best beers to drink with them, including our very own Mind Haze IPA.

Visit the full article here, or check out our blog below for the excerpt to see who they paired Mind Haze with…

Music has the power to make you feel good. Something we could all use a little more of these days.


Danny Brown uknowhatimsayin¿ x Firestone Walker Mind Haze

According to Hop Culture contributor Grace Weitz, here’s what makes Danny Brown so magical:

“He’s like the Banksy of music, dropping flashes of brilliance on us and leaving the scene without a trace. He’s edgy without being flashy. He’s cool without being hyped. His latest album Uknowhatimsayin¿ solidifies Brown’s transcendence as a maverick of music with culturally relevant lyrics that will blow your mind.”

Best Beer Pairing: Mind Haze IPA

“An album this vibrant needs an equally mind-altering beer. Something like Mind Haze, a super juicy, hazy IPA hopped with Mandarina, Cascade, Azaxxa, El Dorado, Mosaic, Chinook, Cashmere, Callista, and Idaho 7. Like Brown, Mind Haze is dank without being outrageous. Just a good, solid, hazy IPA…”

The only thing better than finding that perfect record is finding the best beer to go with it.


Mind Haze is a free‑spirited hazy IPA made to elevate your perceptions—juicy, fresh and loaded with an imaginative array of tropical hop flavors. It’s our first nationally released hazy IPA, now available wherever Firestone beers are sold.
