The Brew Crew Playlist
This week, we asked the Brew Crew to contribute to a playlist for your listening pleasure, and they didn’t disappoint!
We received suggestions as wildly varied as Frank Sinatra and Pink Floyd, from old-school Dave Matthews Band to a decidedly new-school South African artist named Bongeziwe Mabandla — the suggestions were as widely varied as the Brew Crew itself.
And only one repeated artist! The War on Drugs, suggested by both Innovation Director Brian Hink and Sales Manager Chris Verderame, who now have to run off together and be best friends forever. Or, at the very least, go see The War on Drugs together when we’re allowed to be around humans again.
We’re hoping that moment is soon. Whether you love seeing big names in huge arenas, paying through the nose for a watered-down Big Brew or you prefer checking out local bands at the dive bar around the corner, paying reasonable prices for a Cape May brew, we can all agree that this shutdown has hit the music industry particularly hard.
Luckily, many artists are working hard, livestreaming full shows, live sets, and new music. Hopefully, you’ll find your new favorite artist among those below. Enjoy!
