    According to Spinner, Delaware-based brewery Dogfish Head is creating Bitches Brew, a potent beer that commemorates the 40th anniversary of jazz trumpeter Miles Davis' album with which it shares its name. The beverage is a dark combination of stouts and honey beer and the creators say it is meant to be served chilled, but not cold. It is designed to be consumed with, say, spicy curry chicken, too, according to the folks at Dogfish Head, who proudly and carefully craft their brews. The Bitches Brew beer is also quite potent, with a 9 percent ABV content; regular old boring beers have five percent ABV content, so prepare to get your buzz on if you guzzle this bev.

    Additionally, Sony will be releasing two special anniversary editions of the album in August. The Legacy Edition is a three-disc set that includes the original mix of the album, bonus material and a concert DVD. The stocked-to-the-rafters special edition, the 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition, also includes another concert disc, a double-vinyl copy of Bitches Brew and a 48-page book. Now that's what I call a proper celebration of an important anniversary!

    What is your favorite type of beer?
