There's a New MOTÖRHEAD Beer on the Way...

Written by

A lot of bands both current and past have had beers brewed in their honor of late, and I've sort of developed an affection for those limited-edition drinks. In fact, I have some Megadeth and Iron Maiden beers just a few feet from me here in the office at Rock Father HQ as I type these words about the latest brew to be inspired by MOTÖRHEAD. It's not the first beer to be licensed by the band, but the first in a series from Amplified Ale Works. The MOTÖRHEAD Born to Lose IPA is described as "a boldly aggressive West Coast-style IPA, befitting of the band's loud, aggressive style."

Motörhead Born to Lose IPAThe 6.5% IPA is brewed with Cascade, Simcoe and Citra hops that provide an earthy, resinous aroma with notes of fresh citrus. In an ode to MOTÖRHEAD's British roots, the beer was also brewed with Maris Otter, a premium British malt that brings a sweet balance to the beer's bold bitterness. 

The limited edition beer will be sold directly from Amplified's two San Diego locations and will also be available for purchase via the website TheBeerConnect.com for refrigerated shipping throughout California. The can features an original design of band members in a dystopian "Born to Lose" future from LA-based artist Jack Gregory. The follow up beer in the series, Live to Win IPA, will be released later this year.

As the note above says, availability will be limited on this one, so I may have to hop a plane back to SoCal to try it.
