DEFTONES Announces Second, Fruitier Beer Dubbed Swerve City IPA
Back in 2016, Deftones announced its Phantom Bride IPA brewed by Belching Beaver Brewery, which was described as "a hoppy West Coast style India Pale Ale loaded up with Mosaic, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Citra hops." Now the band has premiered another IPA beer with Belching Beaver, this time titled Swerve City.
Here's what frontman Chino Moreno had to say about the beer.
"We’re super excited about where this Deftones/Belching Beaver partnership is heading. Starting off with the simple idea of doing one limited run of the Phantom Bride collaboration has now turned into a full year of seasonal specialty brews to be put together by our love of beer and Belching Beaver’s ability to turn out amazing product. We’re looking forward to all of you enjoying the tasty brews we have in store."
According to Vents Magazine, the beer is an American IPA with passionfruit, guava, and orange, and is "a tropical fruit bomb with a juice-like finish." The beer will be available across the country soon, and if the name is still confusing you, it's dubbed "Swerve City" after the opener from the band's 2012 album Koi No Yokan.
So now you can get stoked on new Deftones beer and new Deftones music!
