Good news: You can finally put an end to all those half-lucid drunken arguments you've had about what kind of beer S.F.-based psych-noise pioneer Helios Creed would be if he were a beer. (You've had those arguments, right?)

Now there's an official answer, because the Burnt Hickory Brewery, of Kennesaw, Georgia, has created a new beer in honor of the former guitarist of acid-punk pioneers Chrome.

And what is it? Can we get an warped, blown-out drum roll, please ?

Behold the beer!

Why of course, it's a Belgian-style Trippel! (For you nonbeer nerds, that means it's a very strong, bready-tasting golden ale. The kind you drink in small glasses.)

Helios Creed is actually just the latest out-there musician to get a beer from the Burnt Hickory Brewery. Others include the Jesus Lizard, the Meatmen, and Killdozer. But it's good to see a legendary S.F. noise freak get a much-deserved (liquid) tribute.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
