Metal Injection And Vox&Hops Present Pit Culture

Get ready for some excellent beers.

Pit Culture

Metal Injection is proud to present Pit Culture! Pit Culture is the brainchild of Vox&Hops host (and Cryptopsy vocalist) Matt McGachy, and is powered by Yakima Chief Hops. Pit Culture features 26 breweries from around the world creating beer together for a new line of killer brews to be released throughout 2023. The photo behind the label was take by photographer Susan Moss, and the label itself was created by Philippe Brousseau.

"Having had the pleasure to tour the world and witness countless mosh pits over my years in Cryptopsy, I discovered that mosh pits always seemed to remain the same," said McGachy. "Mosh pits are indeed sometimes extreme, but they are also engagements that promote mutual respect. I wanted to create a project that could showcase all of the unique things which take place in mosh pits. Things like circle pits, walls of death, stage diving, headbanging and crowd surfing just to name a few.

"I pitched the idea to a few fellow Metal Brewer friends of mine and they all loved it. Back in 2021, I released 22 beers as a part of Brewtal North America where I paired 22 Vox&Hops Alumni with metal breweries from the US and Canada to create unique collaborative craft beers for their bands. This time around I wanted to do it globally. As the pitches went out, the positive responses kept piling in. I am beyond stoked to now have 26 breweries from the US, Canada, Mexico, Denmark, France, Italy, Cyprus, Japan & Australia that have agreed to enter the pit.

"Pit Culture beers will all have unique names such as Circle Pit, Wall of Death, Headwalk, Pick Them Up, Arms Crossed and many more that will demonstrate what each of these terms signify in a mosh pit. Pit Culture beers will begin being released starting now till the end of 2023 and the beers will be released according to each brewery's standard release process.

"I am beyond stoked to have teamed up with Metal Injection as the presenting sponsor of Pit Culture. They are one of, if not, the biggest and best online metal music website. When I was starting Vox&Hops back in 2018, I used to lurk on their site daily to get the most up to date details about the metal scene. I am really happy that they are a part of this project with me."
