Metallica are following in the footsteps of Iron Maiden and Motorhead and putting their name to a beer. Enter Night is coming to Europe in the spring following a successful launch in the US, with plans to further expand into Australia and China.
The band have previously had success in the US with their own brand of whiskey Blackened, named after the opening track of …And Justice For All. Following a positive reception of the whiskey a second assault on the alcohol industry was all but assured.
The band issued a statement saying:
“Stone Brewing is the perfect partner for us with endless commonalities in our ideals, outlooks, and paths forward. Our views of the worlds that we each inhabit, of creativity and process, and of sense of place in relation to our peers and “The Man” are almost identical.
We can’t wait to share this incredible beverage with everyone out there
“In conjunction with the leadership of Stone, we have participated throughout every step alongside their talented brewing team. From our HQ outside of San Francisco to Stone’s brewery and HQ in San Diego to many beers backstage at shows, the spirit of collaboration was powerful.”
Metallica will also release their next album Helping Hands…Live & Acoustic At The Masonic on February 1st, look out for our review coming soon.
Expect the beer to be on sale when Metallica hit the UK and Europe this summer.
