Much like the discovery of fire, the genius who first cracked open a beer while listening to rock 'n' roll guided the course of mankind towards infinite prosperity. The combination of suds and shredding has enriched the live music experience for rockers and metalheads, so it only makes sense that the bands themselves would concoct signature beers designed specifically to complement their tunes.

Lagers, pale ales, oatmeal stouts, imperial porters … awesome acts such as Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Pearl Jam and Pig Destroyer have got you covered no matter your personal preference. Now raise your glasses to some of rock and metal's most essential acts and take a tour of the various brews they've unleashed for your consumption!
