And while Yeezy’s love of birthday cake, banana pudding, and, of course, ice cream has been incredibly well-documented over the years, it’s about time the Louis Vuitton Don got a beer that matches his split personalities.
According to our friends over at Pigeons & Planes, Baltimore-based brewery Stillwater Artisanal has somehow managed to harness the power of Dr. Pepper’s infamous 23 flavors in order to craft a Yezus-inspired Imperial Porter. Aptly titled, “I Miss the Old Kanye,” the beer includes ingredients like juniper, prunes, plums, star anise, cloves, and Brettanomyces.
Clocking in at 8% ABV, the beer also features a Life of Pablo-esque label, and sounds just as manic as its namesake.
“I’ve been afflicted by not one, not two, but all twenty-three flavors,” the label reads. “I’m always one-of-kind.”
As P&P notes, the brewery was founded by Brian Strumker, a former electronica DJ and producer, and “I Miss the Old Kanye” is far from the company’s first foray into the realm of rap. Stillwater Artisanal already boasts a 6 God-style “Hopvine Bling” brew, and a Kendrick Lamar-inspired IPA called “Moneytree$.”
“Ever since I left the city to collab with Hudson Valley Brewery, you got a reputation for yourself now,” the tag for the Drake-approve, dry-hopped Berliner Weisse reads. “Start wearing less and going out more.”
