Would you buy a beer for the picture on the label?

Until two days ago, my answer would have been no. But as an aspiring jazz pianist, I was tempted when I saw this in my local grocery store aisle. 

At $3 a bottle, I managed to talk myself out of it, but then I researched the beer on the brewery’s website, and wouldn't you know it, one of my new favorite jazz pianists, Geoffrey Keezer, is flogging it on the brewer's website. Now, I don't owe Geoffrey anything, but, hey, if it's good enough for him, I don't know, maybe it will make me a better pianist. So, yesterday, I made a special trip just to pick up the beer (and some cold, cough, and flu medicine for me and Mrs. S).

So the answer to the question in the title turns out to be: Hell, why not?
