It’s a Beer! It’s a Record! It’s Both!

Music-themed beer isn’t anything new. But come Friday, 5 Paddles Brewing Company of Whitby, Ontario, will attempt to take things to the next level. Their new brew will be called Jukebox, an 8.5% coffee vanilla stout that will come with a removable label that can be played on a turntable.

The music on the label–a song called, oddly, “Jukebox”–comes from Rory Taillon, and indie musician living in Ottawa. It’s a track from his first album, It’s Not Black & White.

Cool idea, no?
