KnuckleBonz, Inc. have teamed up with Calicraft Brewing Co. and the estate of the late Cliff Burton (Metallica) to create “Cliff ‘Em All” beer. The 6.4% ABV IPA can be pre-ordered HERE with a portion of the proceeds set to go towards the Cliff Burton Music Scholarship Foundation.
Here’s a description of the beer:
“‘Cliff ‘Em All’ IPA is made in classic NorCal style: hoppy, bold, and crushable! Capturing the best of a classic West Coast beer, and made with simcoe and citra hops, this IPA pairs well with all forms of incredible music!”
The Burton family commented:
“Continuing the mission of Cliff’s father, the late Ray Burton, the Cliff Burton Foundation is centered on fostering the next generation of musical talent. We handpick young individuals from around the world with the same enthusiasm for music and dedication to their craft as the late bassist Cliff Burton had. Cheers to Cliff and Ray Burton who loved a good beer.”
Tony Simerman, CEO/creative director of KnuckleBonz, Inc., added:
“We are honored to be working with the estate to bring premium products to music superfans that help contribute to help these talented and hard-working youth musicians. Not only is this foundation and what it stands for near and dear to our hearts here at KnuckleBonz, but honoring Cliff in any way, whatsoever, is very important to us. The integrity, passion and drive he always had along with his obvious musical talent has gained him the highest place of respect in our company. We are truly honored to be working with the family on anything that can pay tribute to Cliff Burton.”
