  • Of the 11 songs on the album, only "Chimes of Freedom" contained the combination of poetry and social commentary that led to him being called the voice of his generation.
  • The eight-minute "Ballad in Plain D" was a largely autobiographical tale of the night he broke up with Suze Rotolo, the woman on the cover of The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.

Beer Pairing: Fusion Brewing, Conversation Piece

This rich American Pale Ale (APA) is a great warm weather drink to enjoy out with friends or in the backyard grilling out listening to Dylan. Despite the relatively low ABV (4%), this beer has plenty of American citra and simcoe hops layered on top of a rich malty base of Marris Otter, Munich and Caramel malt. Light and full of flavor, Conversation Piece is a delight from spring through fall, which is primetime for hitting up live music.

Fittingly, this APA is made by Fusion Brewing which pairs perfectly with Another Side of Bob Dylan since the album laid the groundwork for Dylan to eventually fuse folk and rock. Now that’s a conversation piece!
