I am stoked to announce Vox&Hops Brewtal North America!
Brewtal North America is presented by IndieMerchstore, fueled by Heartbeat Hot Sauce Co. & supported by Yakima Chief Hops! I have paired 22 Vox&Hops Alumni with metal breweries to create unique collaborative craft beers for their bands.
Last February, when we seemed to be headed towards another summer without live shows let alone metal festivals, I imagined Vox&Hops Brewtal North America to bring the metal community together. Initially, I was aiming for 10 collabs for the project but everyone just kept saying yes! I am unbelievably humbled that over 250 people from across North America have teamed up to spread the love of Life, Metal & Craft Beer.
• BREWTAL NORTH AMERICA OFFICIAL HOT SAUCE: Heartbeat Hot Sauce Co. is giving away full bottles of the exclusive Vox&Hops Brewtal North America Scorpion hot sauce. 40 bottles are available per brewery: first come, first served!
• BREWTAL NORTH AMERICA OFFICIAL HOPS: Yakima Chief Hops has offered each participating brewery 10 kg of free hops to use in their Brewtal North America Collab.
• BEHIND THE SCENES: Mini documentaries showcasing the creation of each collaborative brew and exclusive content from the artists involved will be shared on Vox&Hops socials. The videos were created by Chris Kells, The Agonist and Vox&Hops Creative Director of Video Content. A big thank you to Mihaela Petrescu, Vox&Hops Photographer for documenting the process!
The 22 Vox&Hops Brewtal North America collabs will be released between June 21 and 25 2021, at each participating brewery.
