Smart bets: Bask

Following several conversations with Burial Beer Co. owner Tim Gormley, plus one brewing cycle, local psychedelic-rock group Bask hopes to have replicated its own sonic essence in liquid format. Endless Summer White IPA, says bassist Jesse Van Note, “is a refreshing and hop-forward ale brewed with orange peel, orange blossom honey and a hint of rosemary.” Inspired by a 9-minute, swelling rock ballad of the same name (minus the beer type) that’s set in North Carolina and Florida, the drink features ingredients from both states. Patrons can enjoy a pour of the bespoke beer while Bask plays a celebratory set to commemorate the first anniversary of debut LP American Hollow. Niche, the Seduction and Bear open the musical tasting event at The Mothlight on Saturday, July 25, at 9 p.m. $7. themothlight.com. Photo courtesy of the band
