So, Fort George Brewery & Public House in Astoria, OR, made an actual Tape Op-branded craft beer. It's called Overdub IPA, and it looks like this:

Here is what Fort George had to say about their creation:

A good beer is like a good sound recording, balanced and pristine. Soft and subdued when it needs to be – In your face and crankin’ when it must. Done right, there’s nothing better than critical listening with a cold pint in your hand. Conceived, created, and brewed in collaboration with Tape Op, Fort George now invites you to put on your headphones and sample a can of Overdub IPA. Pouring a solid gold with a crisp white head, Overdub IPA is a sensory overload of mango and papaya hop aromas, dank grapefruit tones, and mellow citrus finishing notes. This session-style IPA turns down the ABV, and engages the lupulin intensity toggle switch.

Look for Overdub IPA in grippy 16-oz four-packs and draft starting April 23, 2015, and from time to time throughout the year. Fort George beer is distributed only in the Pacific Northwest. For a location near you, check the beer finder at
