Poll: Would you buy the new Kanye West beer?

Let's talk about it on Saturday at Beerfest!

There's a brewery in Baltimore manufacturing and shipping I Miss the Old Kanye, an eight percent imperial porter that pays tribute to perplexing rap personality Kanye West. 

Stillwater Artisanal craft beer company says the brew is a deconstructed Dr. Pepper inspired concoction (via Baltimore Sun).

"...i made a tribute beer for you..would love to send you some..BTW- the new stuff is dope too.," Artisanal founder Brian Strumke said in a Twitter message directed at the 39-year-old rapper.

P4K points out that the brewery has also released beers inpired by Tennis, Lower Dens, Drake (Hopvine Bling), Kendrick Lamar (Moneytree$), and more.

What we want to know is would you drink it if it was available? Vote in the Twitter poll below and come talk to us about it at our own Beerfest tomorrow, August 20 at the Glazer Children's Museum in downtown Tampa. More info on the party is available here.

Sadly, there won't be any Kanye beer there (and neither will these fake Kanye beers), but CL's own Loafin' Brau is tasting pretty damn good.
