Sublime will celebrate 25th anniversary of 40 oz. to Freedom album by releasing new beer @sublime/Twitter

With hits like “Santeria” and “What I Got,” the Southern California ska-punk band Sublime hit it big in the ’90s. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album 40 oz. to Freedom, the band has paired with San Diego-based AleSmith Brewing Company to create a beer by the same name, which they’ll release this summer.

According to Rolling Stone, the beer is a Mexican-style lager and a limited amount will be packaged in 40 oz. bottles to be sold through the brewery at “to-be-determined” locations before being distributed nationally in standard 12-ounce cans.

“It doesn’t taste like anything else,” Sublime band member Bud Gaugh said in a statement. “The flavor is great and it has a craft beer flare with a true Mexican lager taste. This is the one!”

The band will also commemorate the album’s 25th anniversary with the a yearlong celebration that includes the re-release of their 1995 Badfish EP and a pair of films—a documentary and a biopic—chronicling Sublime’s legacy.
