Opeth have collaborated with Heavy MetAle to create three new beers including: Heritage Pilsner, Sorceress Session IPA, and Garden Of The Titans Red Ale. The drinks will launch at the Zum Franziskaner beerhalle in Stockholm, Sweden on November 10. Members of the band will attend.
Here’s a description of each beer:
‘Heritage Pilsner is a brave and beautiful beer with light tones of bittersweet hops. A tasteful and timeless brew inspired by the band’s 2011 ‘Heritage’ album.
Sorceress Session IPA is bitter, strong and full of hops. Yet, its harsh body contains a hint of something sweet. And just like Opeth’s twelfth full-length 2016 album it’s an adventure where different notes and shifting tones create an orchestra with well-balanced flavours.
Garden of The Titans Red Ale is a unique red brew filled with American hops to commemorate Opeth’s ‘Garden of the Titans’ live album, set for worldwide release this November 2nd through Moderbolaget / Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Garden of the Titans was recorded on May 11th last year at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colorado which provided the perfect inspiration for this tasteful American red ale.’
Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt commented:
“From drinking random peoples; stale, leftover beers during the Stockholm nightlife of the early 90’s to manufacturing our very own beer together with Heavy MetAle might be seen as a massive leap of success. And it is! At least for the beer connoisseurs that we have become. We sincerely hope that everyone that uncaps a bottle of Opeth beer thoroughly enjoys its flavour. Fan or not, it doesn’t matter. A great beer remains a great beer on the taste buds of any devoted fan of this nectar from the Gods.”
