Keytar Bear, Boston’s favorite street performer, now has a beer named after him.

Trillium Brewery Company announced the release of the new beer on Twitter on Tuesday morning. Keytar Bear Double IPA boasts a sweet mix of honey, lactose, and vanilla, according to the company, and is available for purchase at both the Fort Point and Canton brewery locations starting Tuesday.

One pint of the creamy, almost-orange brew contains 8.8 percent alcohol by volume and boasts a “milky” turbid haze.

The can features a drawing of the bear himself, smiling and with a keytar, or portable keyboard carried like a guitar, in hand. The busker — a familiar furry face around Boston — can often be seen performing near T stations, a little amp by his side.
