From the brewer

In the early 1990's Dead Guy Ale was created as a private tap sticker to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead (November 1st, All Souls Day) for Casa U Betcha in Portland, Oregon. The Dead Guy design proved so popular with consumers and especially Grateful Dead fans, that we made it the label for our Maierbock ale. Even though the association with the Grateful Dead band is pure coincidence, we have greatefully dedicated Dead Guy Ale to the Rogue in each of us.

Who's been drinking this

Can at Brunner’s
Actually, I'm really liking that. And that's despite it tasting a little skunked (this is not a great restaurant) It's a nice marzen flavor cut through with a sharp bitterness.
God, this party is awkward. Decent enough Sam Adams-type caramel lager. More hop presence and a bit of a metallic presence make it more interesting than a supermarket macro, but I don't love it.
Bottle at Work
Amber, thick, bitter, brackish. I think the drink-it-of-free is more a matter of, I'll drink beer, whatever.
Somehow I'd never had this before. Decent amber lager, if nothing to write home about.
