DEFTONES have announced that they have partnered with San Diego's Belching Beaver Brewery to create a new beer called Phantom Bride IPA — a hoppy West Coast style India Pale Ale loaded up with Mosaic, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Citra hops, all handpicked by DEFTONES frontman Chino Moreno.
"Really excited to see our Phantom Bride IPA hit the shelves," said Chino. "As a huge beer connoisseur, it was a privilege collaborating with Belching Beaver on the flavor profiles and coming out with a beer that I would put right up with any of my favorites. Good stuff!"
The beer ships from the brewery to distribution outlets in Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Hawaii, and California today and will be available to retailers and consumers where all great craft beer is sold, including BevMo!, on October 3. Phantom Bride IPA will be available on draft and in 22-oz. bottles. It is brewed and bottled by Belching Beaver Brewery, Vista or Oceanside, California. San Diego County.
The beer is named after the multiplatinum, Grammy Award-winning alt-rock band's latest single "Phantom Bride", from their current album "Gore", which is currently Top 10 at Rock Radio.
Lucky fans in the Fullerton, California area will get a chance to taste the Phantom Bride IPA on tap for a limited time at a special kick-off event on October 5 starting at 8 p.m.
