Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is about to launch his own microbrew with the East London company Signature Brew. The beer, called Clear Heart, is a custom craft beer that will be available online and at some retail locations, and will feature artwork from Finn's recent solo album, Clear Heart Full Eyes.

"When I set out to make this beer, I was going for something with a clear taste and a full flavor," Finn said in a statement, referring to the extensive taste-testing process in finding the right brew. "Instead I got a pretty decent buzz. We had a great time creating this beer, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do."

You can watch a video of Finn chatting about the making of his beer below.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
