BREMERTON-BREWED PUNK RAWK
Celebrating 25 years of loud, fast, left-coast punk rawk, MXPX and Silver City Brewery, both from Bremerton, Washington, have joined forces to commemorate the band's anniversary milestone with an exclusive, signature beer. Named after the band's 2007 hit, "Secret Weapon", the brew is a delicious amber lager brewed in the "left-coast common" style. Super easy-going with a full-flavored malt backbone and a clean hop kick on the finish, the recipe is a true collaborative effort between the Silver City brew team and band members Mike, Tom, and Yuri, who were heavily involved in its development, adding their own personal tastes and flavor preferences.
"In our earliest meetings, before we had even settled on a style, we determined two goals," notes brewery PR rep Dan Frantz, "First, the beer had to be a thirst quencher-- hot and sweaty punk rock shows demand a cold and crisp beer with a reasonably light body. Second, the beer still had to be full-flavored. The MXPX band members are true craft beer fans, and tend to enjoy beers that have a solid malt presence, so we incorporated a special blend of seven malts along with some traditional German hops for a crisp finish."
"Secret Weapon Beer" is now available on draft and in 16oz cans as of May 2017, coinciding MXPX's 25th Anniversary. The beer will be distributed throughout Washington State and Northern Idaho, as well as nationally available through an exclusive partnership with Seattle-based Tavour, market leaders in direct-to-door craft beer delivery.
Join us for the official release of the beer at Seattle's Comet Tavern on May 5th, 6pm-8pm. The event will feature the band members as "guest bartenders", and will be a fun-filled evening with the chance for fans to meet and greet the band.
The band is busy gearing up for their official 25th Anniversary concerts to take place July 7th and 8th at the Showbox Market venue in Seattle. "Secret Weapon" beer will be available in 16oz cans at both shows.
