In this Music Monday blog, we are going to take a look at something that is going rapid just like the Craft Beer industry. I want to say this right off the start of this blog. There is nothing wrong with these bands making or teaming up with a beer brewery to make beers. They have that right to do that in their career and they earn this opportunity. I just feel in the past most are not that good. I am going to highlight some of the beers you might see on your local liquor beer stores along with the growing craft beers too. Let us get into this!
This beer is a normal lager. I have never had this beer but it could be a normal American Lager or it could be an import lager.
Here is a description from their website (www.brandsforfans.se):
Motörhead Bastards Lager BeerFor all beer drinkers and hell raisers, fans of loud and fast rock and roll, no matter if you have no class or if you are a damage case, this mean machine lager is fuel for any head banging opportunity. They are using Swedish brewery called Krönleins. This beer is not available in the United States yet but if you live in Europe this is where you can buy it. Order Motorhead LagerMotörhead Bastards Lager Product code: 1234-03 (In Sweden)Origin: Sweden Type of beer:Lager Volume: 330 mlAlcohol: 4,7%Contains: Barley malt and hops
This Bastard has a malty and fruity taste with great character of malt and a hint of citrus. A quality beer that can be appreciated by rock’n’roll fans of all ages. Enjoy anytime when the craving for a beer hits you, but especially well with burgers, grilled meat or fish, pizza and friends.
Iron Maiden Trooper Ale
This one was just released and at least Iron Maiden are true to the beer styles that are in their area and country. I am kind interested in this beer. I love my ales and hoppy ones to that point. Please, watch the video below. I love what Bruce said during the video. This beer sounds like English Ale Beer Style. Iron Maiden is taking this beer pretty seriously and I love how they have an idea on the beer. I believe this is unique ale and I cannot wait to try it. It is not available in the United States but if you are in Europe this is where you can order. Order Iron Maiden Trooper Ale In Europe
Here is a video with Bruce Dickenson (Iron Maiden Singer) from their website (www.ironmaiden.com):
AC/DC German Lager
I heard about this a while ago and I just let it go through me. I am not a huge lager fan but I will try a beer at least once. AC/DC is a legendary hard rock band and they are using their name to push a beer. Just like Iron Maiden they are looking to put this beer around the world for their fans to enjoy. Right now, this beer is not available but the closest to me is Canada. You can order it online but not in the United States. Order AC/DC Lager In Europe
Here is a description from their website (www.acdc-beer.com):
True Taste for Rock`n Roll.
If you wanna rock hard, you need the right beer. AC/DC, the infamous Hardrock Legends from down under, have been delivering true rock for the last 40 years. Now they give their name for true, pint-sized Australian taste as well.
“AC/DC Premium Lager Beer ” is 568mL of true German Premium Lager with mouthwatering 5.0% alc. This lager fires up your tongue like TNT, comes with a great beer-loving taste and is brewed in accordance with the Rock`n Roll manifesto of 1973 and the German purity law of 1516.
Jackyl – Jesse James America’s Outlaw Beer
Jesse James has been ahead of the curve than the rest of his metal peers. This beer is American Wheat Ale. The more I am digging into this subject. I am seeing a ton of lagers so it is nice to Trooper and America’s Outlaw Beer are ales. This beer is only available in a few states.
Here is a descriation from their website (www.jessejamesbeer.com):
AMERICA’S OUTLAW BEER is a true American original.
Our beer is an unfiltered wheat beer. American wheat beer is a style invented by specialty brewers in the United States in the 1980’s. It may even stretch the definition of “style,” for nowhere is the creativity and diversity of America’s craft brewers better displayed than in wheat beers. Our beer is crisp and refreshing with an extremely soft finish.
AMERICA’S OUTLAW BEER is brewed with 40% malted wheat. The remaining grain bill is a wonderful blend of Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts designed to provide more body and mouth feel. Our Nottingham yeast delivers the soft finish that consumers will enjoy time and time again. Wilamette, Fuggles, and Cascade hops balance this refreshing beer perfectly.
This beer is delicious by itself or garnished with fruit.
AMERICA’S OUTLAW BEER is 5.5% abv.
In closing, there are a lot more beers teaming up with bands. The ones that I am talking about are limited edition beers. What I mean by that, they are beers that are made and release. They will never made again in good chances. I am talking about a beer that Clutch with New Belgian. It was a 22oz bottles and it was a limited run. I believe 3 Floyds have done several beers with bands. I will say this. This thought will never end. Breweries and bands will team up to make money off each fan base. I am excited to try these beers but I know some are good and others will be bad. I cannot give you a thought because I never had some of these. Please, let me know your thoughts if you have any of these. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
