A new brew celebrates 30 years of the BoDeans' "Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams."

Sprecher brews BoDeans Original Ginger Beer to celebrate band's anniversary

If you're a student of Milwaukee music, you know that "Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams" is not only a lyric in the Rolling Stones' tune "Shattered," but maybe even more importantly, the title of the BoDeans' debut album, released in May of 1986 on Slash/Warner Bros.

The album was produced by T-Bone Burnett and helped launched a long, hit-filled career for the Waukesha-born band. Even 30 years later, the album still sounds great even if the band has taken on a different form and members.

To help celebrate 30 years of "Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams," Milwaukee-based Sprecher Brewing is releasing BoDeans Original Ginger Brew. The ale with natural ginger will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles and sport a 3.4%-AbV.

To help release the new Ginger Brew, the brewery also is holding a special private acoustic concert from the BoDeans. The invitation-only show is Thursday, June 16.
