Stone Brewing has become well known for their bold and unapologetic approach to making beer — after all, their flagship offering is called Arrogant Bastard Ale. So a collaboration with one of the loudest, angriest bands of all time, Metallica, feels like a match made in heaven… or hell. Behold, the Stone Brewing x Metallica Enter Night Pilsner.
Technically made by Stone’s marketing sub-brand, Arrogant Consortia, Enter Night was produced in direct collaboration with the members of the legendary metal band. In fact, Metallica reached out to Stone directly. As you might’ve gathered, the name and inspiration is drawn from the song “Enter Sandman,” off the band’s self-titled black album, and is meant to be crisp, refreshing, and remarkably drinkable. An unusual beer style for Stone, the pilsner boasts a 5.7% ABV, 45 IBUs (International Bitterness Units), and comes in a four-pack of tall boy cans. Available nationwide soon, the beer can also be found at all concerts along Metallica’s current “Worldwired Tour.”
