METALLICA Officially Announce Enter Night Pilsner Beer
Metallica has their own whiskey and once teamed up with Budweiser to release a branded beer. Now the band has their own, brewed-for-themselves beer called Enter Night that was done in collaboration with Stone Brewing imprint Arrogant Consortia. The beer has been available in limited quantities in select states over the past few months and is now seeing a nationwide release sometime this quarter, as well as an international release this spring.
Enter Night is a pilsner that is 5.7% ABV, 45 IBUs. Here's what Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and Stone co-founder Greg Koch had to say about the new brew.
"The amount of ideals and outlooks that Metallica and Stone Brewing share are endless,” says Lars. "I’m always blown away about how similar our paths forward have been. Our view of the worlds that we each inhabit, of creativity and process, and sense of place in relation to our peers and ‘The Man’ are almost identical. This collaboration is beyond effortless and pure, and we can’t wait to share this incredible beverage with everyone out there."
“I remember seeing Metallica on the cover of a magazine just after the Black Album was released,” recalls Greg. “On the cover was a quote that resonated with me to this day: ‘Metallica didn’t go to number one, number one came to them.’ I loved what that meant. Do it your way and never compromise your art. If you’re great at what you do people will come. I view that simple quote as one of the founding philosophical elements of Stone Brewing.”
