NOFX and Pennywise striking up deals for one of a kind beer. NOFX and Stone Brewing announce an official Punk in Drublic, and why the hell not, I’d buy it. Meanwhile in Pennywise land, Lost Coast Brewery is pumping out Pennywiser beer. They are both out now so grab them while you can.
“I think it’s cool because a couple of breweries have tried to work with us before, but it’s always been janky,” says NOFX frontman and bassist “Fat Mike” Burkett. “But when Stone wanted to work with us, they were taking it seriously. I was like ‘This is the kind of beer I want to do’ and they listened to me. It’s a hoppy lager, and they don’t do lagers here very often. They had to bring in a certain malt that they don’t usually use, but it’s a really drinkable beer.”
“After 10 years of us talking about doing a beer, it’s finally happening thanks to our good friends at Lost Coast Brewery,” says Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge. “We’ve been trying to get this idea off the ground for awhile now, and to find a like-minded company with a DIY attitude of doing things their own way and not conforming to the usual corporate ways of the beer making world.”
As a big fan of both bands and beer this should be fun.
