Zao To Release Official ‘Burned At The Stake’ Beer


Zao have teamed up with Louisville, KY brewery Against The Grain for a new beer called ‘Burned At The Stake‘. It takes it’s name from a lyric from the track “The Sun Orbits Around Flat Earth Witch Trials” off of their latest album, “The Well-Intentioned Virus“. It is described as being a “smoked stout with various chili peppers and has a target ABV of 6-7%. The base malt will be Baird Marris Otter and will also include specialty grains such as Pale Chocolate, Midnight Wheat and Roasted Barley.”

An early May release is expected with it set to be draft-only and distributed in select cities throughout the United States. Band vocalist Dan Weyandt commented:

“It all started as a brief conversation with brewer Pete Fingerson and I on the Zao Facebook page. We soon began to talk more often, primarily about beer and music, and eventually we figured since we were both fans of each other’s work that a collaboration only made sense.”

Current Zao live dates include:

02/16 Pittsburgh, PA – Mr. Smalls (feat. Candiria, Fit For An Autopsy and Slaves BC)
02/18 Savannath, GA – AURA Fest
04/07 Louisville, KY – Trixie’s (feat. Cult Killer & Miracle Drug)
04/08 Indianapolis, IN – Emerson Theater (feat. Lo-Pan)
