Crack the Skye | 3 Floyds Brewing Company
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
Description: A blend of barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout, fresh RIS, Dark Matter Coffee, and vanilla. September 5-11 is National Suicide prevention week, so Dark Matter Coffee, 3 Floyds, and Mastodon teamed up to do a special release that raises awareness and funds for Hope for the Day, an organization that helps people and families of all shapes and sizes deal with mental health issues and suicide prevention. This project is called “Crack the Skye,” after the Mastodon album of the same name, which was dedicated to the Skye Dailor, the sister of Brann Dailor, drummer for Mastodon. Skye died of suicide at the age of 14, which had an obvious impact on her friends and family. The beer has a special meaning for Brann, the band, Dark Matter and 3 Floyds, with proceeds benefiting Hope for the Day.
