Hatebreed Add Two More Beers To Their “Breed Brew” Line

Hatebreed have teamed up with Witchdoctor Brewing Company and Half Time Beverage once again to create two more beers for their “Breed Brew” line. The latest beverages include a 5.8% ABV beer called “Perseverance Pale Ale” and a non-alcoholic version of their “Live For This Lager.” Both of those are available at Witchdoctor Brewing and halftimebeverage.com. Drummer Matt Byrne commented:

“Who is stoked to get their summertime, post-COVID party on?! Live music and touring are beginning to come back strong and what better way to celebrate than with the release of a new Breed Brew? Hatebreed have once again partnered with Southington, Connecticut’s Witchdoctor Brewing and Poughkeepsie, New York’s Half Time Beverage to bring you ‘Perseverance Pale Ale.’ The beer culture will rejoice for this one, as we’ve kicked it up a notch with this hop-forward, crisp, and malty-flavored 5.8% banger, perfectly bridging the gap between a heavy stout and a lighter lager. For those fans who don’t consume alcohol, we sure as hell didn’t forget about you, either. We now have a smooth, crisp, and non-alcoholic version of our well-received ‘Live For This Lager’ in a limited edition blue can.”

Inspired by the newest AC/DC album, AC/DC PWR UP Juicy IPA combines new school vibes with old-school cool.”

“AC/DC TNT Double IPA (8.2%) is a modern take on a classic style. We blend a mix of Australian Cascade, American Cascade, and Simcoe to create a big, bold 8.2% Double IPA. Flavors of fresh cut grapefruit, sweet mango, and fresh pine explode out of the glass. Inspired by the first international AC/DC album — AC/DC TNT Double IPA proves that classics never go out of style.”

“We are beyond excited to be collaborating with Calicraft on a new line of craft beers for music superfans. Many of the bands we have worked with in the Rock Iconz and 3D Vinyl Series will be coming to the new beverage line. There’s not a better band than AC/DC to kick this off.”

Matt Caughthran commented

Here’s a description of the beer:

“A feisty 6% ABV India Pale Lager where hops and malts collide. Hellcat rages with a citrus-forward flavor with a no less aggressive malty backbone. The result is a hazy-gold IPL with an epically complex balance. As with all BrewDog beers, Hellcat is carbon negative and BrewDog removes double the CO2 it takes to make.”

James Watt, CEO and co-founder of BrewDog, commented

“We’re thrilled to partner with a world-renowned rock band like Iron Maiden. Iron Maiden, like BrewDog, have maintained their spirit of independence throughout their stellar career. Hellcat is a hop-forward lager with a golden hazy appearance and crisp finish — an epic beer worthy of this massive collaboration.”

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson added:

“I’ve been looking for the perfect partner with whom to bring a fresh, exciting beer to the U.S. I’ve long been an admirer of BrewDog, not just because of their beers, but also of their attitude and style. When I met the BrewDog team, we discovered the respect is mutual, and that we could make an undeniably unique beer together.”

The resulting blend of two oak barrels was named ‘Croatoan‘ after a song on our upcoming album. Croatoan is an exceedingly complex wild ale with notes of vanilla, herbal gin botanicals, tart cherry and charred oak. The can art is by our very own Dan Weyandt.”

Unearth To Release “Black Hearts Now Reign” Beer To Benefit The ACLU

Unearth have teamed up with Broken Goblet to create a new beer called “Black Hearts Now Reign.” The beverage will be available on November 21 and proceeds from it will go towards the ACLU.

The band shared the following press release:

“Boston metal giants Unearth and musically influenced PA brewery Broken Goblet have teamed up on a collaborative beer in support of identifying and ending racial inequalities in our country, with all proceeds being split between the Philadelphia and Boston chapters of the ACLU.

“Black Hearts Now Reign” is an 11% Russian Imperial Stout brewed with white chocolate, an on-the-nose ingredient choice selected by the brewery for the combination of bitter and sweet that it adds to the beer, and the obvious analogy to the “work together” theme of the brew.

For Broken Goblet manager Reese Dunlap, this beer is personal in many ways. “I am not only a minority in the craft beer world, but also in the world at large, and both me and my family here in the industry need to fight to be the change we want to see. It represents a chance for our brewery to use our platform to remind people that we should be working hand in hand, uplift the black and brown voices that need it right now, own the faults and be a better example of unity. Plus – we get to work with some of our musical idols in Unearth!”

No stranger to amplifying social issues through their art, Boston-based Unearth was happy to work on this beer with Broken Goblet. Says Trevor Phipps, who fronts the band, “The only way to achieve a civil and just society is to work together to achieve an equal playing field for all. While this idea might be obvious to many, there is still a lot of work we all need to do to ensure a truly united future. We couldn’t be happier to collaborate with Broken Goblet, on our first ever beer, while bolstering the collective voice for unity, equality and the greater good. Cheers friends!”

The beer will be canned and released November 21st at the brewery, and they are working on an arrangement that would bring some of the beer to Boston as well.
