Motorhead Release Official Beer: Bastards Lager
It's no secret that the guys of Motorhead love a good drink. After the success of the band's wine endeavor, Motorhead Shiraz, of which a quarter-million bottles have been sold, the trio are now offering fans the very first Motorhead beer, Bastards Lager.
With possibly the most awesome label in the history of fermented beverages, Motorhead's Bastards Lager has just been unleashed to the people of Sweden. Launched for the 2012 Sweden Rock Festival, the lager may see a broader release in the future, as the official Motorhead Drinks website reads, "at this moment only in the Swedish market."
Although many fans are unable to taste the beer for themselves, the band has offered a detailed description of what consumers can expect. "Motorhead Bastards Lager is a gloriously fresh and fruity beer with a wonderful character of light malt. It’s easy to drink but has a hard rock edge. It’s perfect for all those occasions when you feel that craving for a cold beer such as those summer barbecues and picnics, naturally with music pumping at full blast through the loudspeakers. This Bastard has a refreshing, zesty taste with a nice malt curve and a hint of citrus. A quality beer that can be appreciated by rock 'n' roll fans of all ages."
Hear that, metalheads? Pour some Bastards Lager in your sippy cup and start knocking it back like a real man! Strangely enough, when Motorhead says "all ages," technically they're correct, as Sweden does not enforce a legal drinking age for private consumption of alcohol. That said, drink responsibly!
Bastards Lager is currently the only beverage listed on the Motorhead Drinks website, so we're crossing our fingers that the band will be offering more selections soon. Hopefully in time for the band's Mayhem Festival dates, which will begin on June 30.
