Opeth To Release Three New Beers


Opethhave announced the release of three new beers in conjunction with Heavy MetAle. Among those offerings are:

Heritage Pilsner is a brave and beautiful beer with light tones of bittersweet hops. A tasteful and timeless brew inspired by the band’s 2011 ‘Heritage’ album.

Sorceress Session IPA is bitter, strong and full of hops. Yet, its harsh body contains a hint of something sweet. And just like Opeth’s twelfth full-length 2016 album it’s an adventure where different notes and shifting tones create an orchestra with well-balanced flavours.

Garden of The Titans Red Ale is a unique red brew filled with American hops to commemorate Opeth’s ‘Garden of the Titans’ live album, set for worldwide release this November 2nd through Moderbolaget / Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Garden of the Titans was recorded on May 11th last year at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colorado which provided the perfect inspiration for this tasteful American red ale.’

Opeth vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt commented:

“From drinking random peoples; stale, leftover beers during the Stockholm nightlife of the early 90’s to manufacturing our very own beer together with Heavy MetAle might be seen as a massive leap of success. And it is! At least for the beer connoisseurs that we have become. We sincerely hope that everyone that uncaps a bottle of Opeth beer thoroughly enjoys its flavour. Fan or not, it doesn’t matter. A great beer remains a great beer on the taste buds of any devoted fan of this nectar from the Gods.”

The beer will first be made available at the Zum Franziskaner beerhalle in Stockholm, Sweden next Saturday, November 10th at 3PM with members of Opeth scheduled to be in attendance.

If drinking isn’t your thing, you can get your hands on Opeth‘s new live release, “Garden Of The Titans: Live At The Red Rocks Amphitheatre“, tomorrow, November 02nd. That set will be released on Blu-ray/DVD and more and captures a May 11th, 2017 show the band played at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver, CO.
