Days of the Beer, January 6

The beer for today is Unibroue Éphémère Apple.

On January 6, 1966, Andrew Wood was born. Wood was the lead singer of the band Mother Love Bone. He died March 19,1990 shortly before the release of the band's debut album Apple, in July.

Mother Love Bone, was Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, Bruce Fairweather, Greg Gilmore, and Andrew Wood. After Wood died, the band broke up, and Ament and Gossard went to form Pearl Jam. Shortly after the death of Wood, Gossard and Ament, along with Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, would write a tribute album for Wood, with the band name of Temple of the Dog.

As to the beer:

Unibroue is based out of Chambly, Quebec, Canada.
Éphémère is the third in a series of lively original-recipe beers that come and go before you know it. From season to season and year to year you'll find a different Éphémère beer.
There are several beers in the Éphémère line, including (but not limited to) apple, cassis, cranberry, peach, and raspberry.

So, for what would be Andrew Wood's 43rd birthday, have an Unibroue Éphémère Apple.
