Metal and beer – such a natural pairing that there's a festival coming up dedicated to the idea. Joining the legions of heavy groups with their own beer is Anthrax, who have teamed up with Butternuts Beer & Ale Brewery to create the Wardance Pale Ale.
The beer is 5.5% ABV and has a pretty sweet purple label.
"Wardance is brewed using a blend of both New York State and North American two-row malt barley and a blend of special malts to add color and depth of flavor. The hops are sourced through New York State and West Coast growers. A percent of the hops is added in the boil kettle and a percent post fermentation to create a unique flavor profile that balances the rich flavor and aroma of the specialty malts with the delicate aroma of the select hops. The result is a recognizable beer with a unique character that sets Wardance apart from other beers out in the market today."
