Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly,
And the spiders from Mars . . .

Hey Bitches, check out this beer I found at the new Trader Joe’s that just opened two blocks from the Chickpad! Weird & Gilly (named for two members of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust-era band, The Spiders from Mars) is a single cut, double dry hopped IPA whose flavor is described as “soft, doughy and slightly tangy malt, [with] bright citrus, pine resin hops, and tropical fruit.”

I was told that it “tastes pretty good.” A four-pack of 16-ounce cans sells for $14.99!  We’ll excuse the fact hat the label font is actually modeled after of the lightning bolt across Bowie’s face from the cover of Aladdin Sane, because nobody seems to get that right.
