Headbanging is to dance what metal is to music. Which is to say, the elbow-flinging, tattooed, wild-eyed problem child to the stuff your grandparents listened to. Most likely, your grandparents also drank some form of neutered light corn/rice-infused facsimile of a lager (aka AAL) that was the liquid equivalent of elevator music (not exactly their fault, as they didn’t have the choices that you do). And since you’ve chosen not to listen to their music, then you deserve a Lager fit for the lords of metal, not some bubble gum pop-inspired, watered-down, mass-produced version.
We’ve taken the classic lager recipe and asked Maine and our own Stone brewers to wail, riff, rage, create and destroy until this rock-worthy India Pale Style Lager resulted. Heavily hopped and boldly malted, the encore flavor for DaySlayer is a crisp finish that is deceptively easy to put away and decidedly hard to put down. It’s “just noise and yelling” to some, but poetry to us.
