Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh took a few minutes to check in with Tommy and Danielle about the new beer collaboration the band has undertaken with San Diego’s Alesmith Brewing Co., in part to celebrate the 25th (!) anniversary of the release of Sublime’s landmark 40 Oz. to Freedom debut album.

The kickoff party for the beer gets underway this Saturday, July 15, at 5 p.m. at Alesmith Brewing Co. in “Beeramar,” at 9990 Alesmith Court. Bud Gaugh will be available for poster signings, plus long-time Sublime friend and collaborator DJ Product 1969c will spin music for the 40 Oz. to Freedom Mexican lager rollout.
