Brendon Urie loves beer, so OF COURSE there would eventually be a special edition Panic! at the Disco beer.
Deemed IP!ATD, the band first brewed a small batch at Asbury Park Brewery in March 2018 while out for their secret club shows teasing Pray For The Wicked.
The beer is described as featuring a strong malt backbone that’s complimented with a hop nose of citrus and pine. It also has a subtle bitterness that gives way to hop juiciness in the aftertaste, which is distinctive of an East Coast IPA.
Brendon Urie worked with Asbury Park Brewery co-founder Jeff Plate to nail what the frontman loves in a beer. The duo represented West Coast style elements while also working in an East Coast element to reflect the brewery.
“I say this often but beer really is my comfort food,” Urie says. “With all the traveling I do, it’s something I look forward to knowing I can usually find a local beer that represents the city I’m visiting or have one of my classic favorites for when I’m feeling homesick. For me, IP!ATD is a blend of both those feelings—uniting a familiar taste with something fresh.”
The limited edition Indiana Pale Ale will be available exclusively at the Newark, New Jersey show at the Prudential Center Jan. 18. Read more HERE!
1) That is a fantastic name for a P!ATD beer. Well done.
2) Nah, I'm cool not going to New Jersey to get this. Maybe it'll show up online eventually.
