MUSIC NEWS: BrewDog & Lamb Of God Release World’s First Non-Alcoholic Collaboration Beer
Scottish craft brewer BrewDog have teamed up with Lamb Of God to release the world’s first non-alcoholic collaboration beer, Ghost Walker. The beer is named after the band’s hit Ghost Walking, taken from their 2012 album Resolution. Lamb Of God vocalist, Randy Blythe, wrote the lyrics as he started his journey toward an alcohol-free lifestyle.
The announcement of the collaboration was meant to coincide with the band’s worldwide tour which has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the launch has gone ahead with a video premiere which sees Lamb Of God perform Ghost Walking live at House Of Vans in Chicago in February.
“The idea of a collaboration hatched when Willie Adler and I visited a BrewDog bar in Columbus on a tour day off to sample a few pints of their non-alcoholic beer with the brewery team,” Blythe explains. “Countless bands have done beer collaborations, but we are the world’s first non-alcoholic one. In my not-so-humble opinion, this is the best non-alcoholic beer ever made, PERIOD. It was conceived, designed and first tasted while on tour – music drove it into existence. Right now is a strange time for everyone, but we’re stoked to provide a non-alcoholic option for those who want to have a brew while cranking some tunes safely at home. We hope you enjoy our performance and we will see you on the road as soon as possible.”
“This collaboration is our most epic to date,” adds BrewDog co-founder James Watt. “It is also one of the most important, especially now. BrewDog has always been focused on making other people as passionate about craft beer as we are, and that includes people who, like Randy, don’t want alcohol in their beer. Our AF line of beers offers everyone an alcohol-free alternative for any occasion and we’re thrilled to add Ghost Walker to the lineup.”
