Wisconsin beer honors Texas musician

Posted: Updated:

 MADISON (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin beer borrows its inspiration from the lyrics of a song from a long-time, musician from Texas.

Wisconsin Brewing Company named its latest Maibock variety "Big Sweet Life," the name of a song written by Texas music legend Jon Dee Graham.

Graham and his band performed Sunday at the WBC brewery.

"Kirby the brew master out here is the one who hooked that deal up," friend Rich Genin says. "Jon greatly appreciates the acknowledgement and having a beer named after him."

Graham showed his gratitude by signing bottles of the beer that bears his song's name.
