Metallica has officially announced the new and fresh Enter Night Pilsner Beer.
Back in August, Metallica had introduced their new “Blackened” American whiskey. The whiskey was inspired from the 1988 album “…And Justice for All” and was created by chemical engineer Dave Pickerell. Now they’re releasing their first pilsner beer, partnering with Stone Brewing imprint Arrogant Consortia. The resulted Metallica branded beer has 5.7% ABV and 45 IBU. In addition, the name was inspired from their self-titled album from 1991.
Here is the official statement from Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and Stone co-founder Greg Koch:
“The number of ideas and outlooks that Metallica and Stone Brewing share are endless,” says Lars. “I’m always blown away about how similar our paths forward have been. Our view of the worlds that we each inhabit, of creativity and process, and sense of place in relation to our peers and ‘The Man’ are almost identical. This collaboration is beyond effortless and pure, and we can’t wait to share this incredible beverage with everyone out there.”
“I remember seeing Metallica on the cover of a magazine just after the Black Album was released,” recalls Greg. “On the cover was a quote that resonated with me to this day: ‘Metallica didn’t go to number one, number one came to them.’ I loved what that meant. Do it your way and never compromise your art. If you’re great at what you do people will come. I view that simple quote as one of the founding philosophical elements of Stone Brewing.”
