We're just counting down the days until Metallica comes and rocks out the Bridgestone! Just in time for the BIG concert, Metallica will be releasing their own beer! The beer is called Enter Night. The band teamed up with Stone Brewing imprint Arrogant Consortia to release the 5.7% ABV, 45 IBUs pilsner.
When the beer first came out, it was only in a few states, but it's now getting rolled out Nationwide!
Lars Ulrich and Stone co-founder Greg Koch had some things to say about the new beer:
"The amount of ideals and outlooks that Metallica and Stone Brewing share are endless,” says Lars. "I’m always blown away about how similar our paths forward have been. Our view of the worlds that we each inhabit, of creativity and process, and sense of place in relation to our peers and ‘The Man’ are almost identical. This collaboration is beyond effortless and pure, and we can’t wait to share this incredible beverage with everyone out there."
“I remember seeing Metallica on the cover of a magazine just after the Black Album was released,” recalls Greg. “On the cover was a quote that resonated with me to this day: ‘Metallica didn’t go to number one, number one came to them.’ I loved what that meant. Do it your way and never compromise your art. If you’re great at what you do people will come. I view that simple quote as one of the founding philosophical elements of Stone Brewing.”
