Armored Saint have teamed up with Metal Monkey Brewing to create “Symbol Of Salvation” beer. Decibel Magazine shared the following description of the Belgian Blonde Ale:
Brewed with Grains of Paradise and Pacifica hops, “Symbol Of Salvation” offers a slight twist on the traditional style; the Grains of Paradise add a slightly spicy, woody character, while the Pacifica hops bring to the party an aroma and flavor reminiscent of orange marmalade.
The beer will be tapped at the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest in Los Angeles. Armored Saint are set to perform at the pre-party for that event and are also scheduled to participate in a signing at 7 p.m. on December 1.
Metal Monkey Brewing said the following about the collaboration:
“Metal Monkey got to hang out with Fates Warning after their Joliet, Ilinois and Milwaukee, Wisconsin dates during their 2017 ‘Theories Of Flight’ tour. It was basically two nights of bonding over the magic of music and beer. When Armored Saint came through Chicago earlier this year as part of their tour to celebrate ‘Symbol Of Salvation’, we had the chance to do it all over again. Since then, we’ve kept in touch with Joey Vera with an eye toward working together in the future. After we were added to the brewery lineup for the Decibel Metal & Beer Festival, we immediately got in touch with Joey because it was the perfect opportunity to turn a hypothetical into a reality.
Working with Joey has been a blast. He’s he made music that’s been a fixture in our lives and he shares our love of beer and our passion for creativity. It’s been an honor to pair up and create a fun, flavorful beer that sidesteps conventional expectations.
We’re proud to debut ‘Symbol Of Salvation’, our Belgian Blonde Ale brewed in collaboration with and in celebration of Armored Saint and their iconic album, at the Decibel Metal & Beer Festival. Everything about this beer was born of a shared love for the art of brewing that, much like heavy metal in all its forms, affords endless possibilities.”
“We are super excited to announce that we have made a great craft beer in collaboration with Metal Monkey Brewery from Romeoville, Illinois! Aside from being metalheads, these guys are great brewers who are not afraid of going outside the box. Together, we’ve created a killer Belgian Blonde Ale that we stand tall behind! Welcome to ‘Symbol Of Salvation’ Belgian Blonde Ale! Come on out to the Decibel Beer Fest, meet the band, meet our brew, get a taste of ‘Symbol Of Salvation’ Belgian Blonde Ale!”
