Metallica Reveal New ‘Enter Night’ Pilsner Beer
It wasn't long ago that Metallica unleashed the 'Blackened' blended whiskey. If you're looking something carbonated to knock back, you're in luck as the thrash legends have just announced the 'Enter Night' pilsner, partnering with Arrogant Consortia, an imprint under the Stone Brewing Company.
The brew received a light rollout at the tail of 2018, launching in select states in the United States in September and in California in November. The 'Enter Night' pilsner will receive a nationwide release during the first quarter of this year with international ambitions set for the spring.
This Metallica-branded beer, which is 5.7 percent ABV and 45 IBUs, comes in 16 oz. six-packs and will be available on draft as well. To see if it will be available near you, use this beer finder.
"The amount of ideals and outlooks that Metallica and Stone Brewing share are endless,” says drummer Lars Ulrich. "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,” recalled Stone co-founder Greg Koch. “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.”
