Pearl Street Brewery is hosting national touring Kind Country’s album release party with opening act The Wooks Saturday April 13, 2019. Kind Country is a Minneapolis based band that plays American standards as well as their own brand of “Cosmic American music”. Since their formation in 2012, the band has focused on creating live performances with high levels of improvisation and energy.

Kentucky natives, The Wooks will also be hitting the stage, they state their music translates the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads, and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate. With both respect for their heritage and innovative originality, The Wooks are the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there.

 

Kind Country Press

kindcountryband.com

“These guys have something special going on, with the addition of drums allowing the group to go deeper in exploring how bluegrass can morph and intersect with other genres and giving them the freedom to create a sound that is truly their own. However, they still stay true to their string-band origins and bluegrass roots, with their energetic playing and the talent among the six players more-or-less guaranteeing a foot-stompin’ good time.”-  

– Ming Lee Newcomb – Live for Live Music

 

The Wooks Press

“What has happened, in largely organic fashion, is a string-music sound that recalls renegade innovators John Hartford and David Grisman as much as roots driven sources Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, along with improv-savvy interplay that endears the band to jam music fans and bluegrass traditionalists alike.”

Pearl Street Brewery is currently announcing their upcoming Spring beer release of its 2019 batch of Smokin’ Hemp Porter available regionally on April 20th (4/20) and a CBD infused limited draft only available at the Pearl Brewery Tap Room. The name of the CBD beer will be unveiled at the highly anticipated 4/20 release event.

Another Pearl Street original, and a Silver Medal Winner at the World Beer Championships, the Smokin’ Hemp Porter is a dark, smooth, and easy drinkin’ porter made with cherry-wood smoked malt and toasted hemp seeds. (Limited 4/20 Release – 5.5% ABV 18 IBUs)

Pearl Street Brewery is ahead of its time when it comes to releasing beer that actually contains hemp. Pearl Street Founder and Brewmaster, Joe Katchever has been brewing and serving Smokin’ Hemp Porter on draught since 2008. Katchever says, “although I applied several times, I couldn’t get Federal label approval for this beer because it had the word ‘hemp’ on the label. I have many emails back and forth with the TTB (the Federal Agency that regulates alcohol product labels) explaining that the beer did not contain illegal substances and that hemp itself is not illegal. It was not until recently that they were able to give me their permission to label and sell this beer outside of the state.”  Smokin’ Hemp Porter has been sold in bottles since 2015.

Pearl Street Brewery will be showcasing the 2019 batch of Smokin’ Hemp Porter and the new CBD infused draft at the Pearl Street Brewery Tap Room on April 20 from 4-8pm during the  during the 4/20 Green Party with TUGG and People Brothers Band.
