Motörhead Release Own Line Of Beer

Let's get hammered

This is rather dope. I know I attack Slayer and Kiss for slapping their names on everything, but that’s because they’ve already got millions.

Motörhead never made a fucking dime, and they should. They deserve to enjoy the spoils of their rockin’ labors.

Motörhead have launched a real rock beer for all beer lovers — Bastards Lager. The beer is brewed by Swedish brewery Krönleins and can be ordered by the whole case from Systembolaget, the Swedish state liquor shop.

The beer joins Motörhead’s growing line of spirits.

The Motörhead Shiraz came out last year, and has been a huge success with over a quarter of a million bottles sold — six times platinum, in musical terms.

There’s even a Motörhead Vodka on the market.

“You’re never too old for rock ‘n’ roll and good chilled beer,” says Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee. “That always works well together!”

What? Sit down, Mikkey. You’re not making sense.

Motörhead Bastards Lager is a beer with a lot of attitude — making it the perfect thirst-quencher at the summer’s festivals or on the beach with a Motörhead track coming through your headphones at high volume, reads a press release.

A recommendation is to drink Bastards Lager chilled together with juicy, freshly grilled burgers on a summer evening.

The Bastards bottle is easily recognizable, as it is adorned with the Motörhead logo.

“Motörhead Bastards Lager is a gloriously fresh and fruity beer with a wonderful character of light malt,” says Yvonne Wener of Brands For Fans. “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.”
