So many bands have their own branded booze, that Richmond thrashers Iron Reagan thought why not us as well? Thus, the band have teamed with Strangeways Brewing for their ‘Just Say Go‘ beer, named after one of the band's songs. The beer is described as a "Belgian Black Tripel" by the official press release:
“JUST SAY GO BELGIAN BLACK TRIPEL
8.4% ABV~17 IBU
When Hardcore Punk Metal band Iron Reagan and Strangeways Brewing got to collaborating, two core ideas were immediately at war: wanting to brew a favorite style, the Belgian Tripel, while at the same time desiring to make a dark-as-night ale to pay homage to metal music. Peace was partially restored when we realized we could brew a Belgian Black Tripel. Jelly beans were added to enhance the insanity while at the same time keeping with the essence of the band’s name. Finally, months of aging in oak barrels bring it all back to earth. Now…don’t be a Nancy, and Just Say Go!”
I'm curious how the jellybeans affect the taste. The dudes will unveil the brew at a free release show at Strangeways Brewing in Richmond, VA, with Valient Thorr and other acts on September 27th.
