    Been trying to track down since he posted that haha. Seems to be a rather difficult find.

    P.S. This thread is awesome.

    I used to love PXDX when I was younger, I may have to throw Prowler in the Yard on today.

    Posting again in an awesome thread.

    And why is it not suprising that a good number of the new-ish pacific northwest black metal-ish bands like craft brews? Heck, I would be suprised if the guys from WITTR don't brew themselves. Would seem to make sense.

    Low Gravity. Don't know anything about them other than being a superb stoner metal band... but Low Gravity is certainly something nice in a finished brew.

    Carry on.

    I typically listen to Dillinger Escape Plan, or Meshuggah while brewing. So yeah, for me, metal and beer go hand in hand.

    I've seen Municipal Waste 4 times and keep forgetting to talk to him about beer after the shows.

    Best live band. EVER.

    yeah but municipal waste is garbage, tankard is a lot better even if they are only drinking barrels of henninger at a time

    You forgot he was also in the super awesome Burnt By The Sun.

    I did a trip through the Pacific NW this summer. Bend, Portland, Seattle and it's not at all surprising anyone from that area loves craft beers because they are EVERYWHERE up there. The local bars all proudly carry the local brewers. It was awesome to be able to walk into any pub and see a ton of cool beers I'd never seen before. When Deschutes is the "worst case scenario", it's a good time.

    Couple their geographic pride with "buy local" ideology and the quality of local brews and it's not shocking.

    And to stay vaguely on topic, tonight I will be knocking back some IPA's (Odells, Ska Modus Hoperandi) while listening to the metal antithesis of Grindcore, Funeral(ish) Doom.... Faal, Evoken, Ahab...

    I love metal and obviously craft beer. I'm not a big Pig Destroyer fan(seen them a few times live though). I still remember over twenty years ago flipping through the channels one night and coming across Headbangers Ball(with Riki Rachtman lol). Panteras Walk was playing followed by Chaos AD from Sepaltura and I thought both were badass. I joined Columbia House and BMG and started racking up the metal cds. I got Soul of a new machine by Fear Factory in one of my first shipments and loved it! Suuuffer Bastard!

    Indeed. I've gotten that idea from people I know in the Portland area.

    And it is fascinating- not to mention just damn cool- to see that whole ethic creep into other areas. Buy local, drink good beer, said beer crafted with care, passion, and local ingredients.

    And then you have bands, again like WITTR, that take that ethic to impressive levels.

    While I tend to not like stouts in the summer, it's tough when cranking something like black or doom metal to NOT want a dark, brooding, heavy beer.

    One of the better genre/band descriptions I've ever heard- Ahab, "nautical funereal doom metal".

    I thought the logical conclusion was bearded d00ds love sub-genres and minority business shares. Pfft, what do I know? :stuck_out_tongue:

    Whenever I see the word "Behemoth," (or drink it; I have a bomber in the fridge right now) I go back to the old Tad song. Check it out. Not quite metal, but a great tune.

    Saw Pantera and White Zombie on the same bill in Chicago once. Very good show. Many years ago. Long before my craft beer days...

    Last August we kept buying Yob rounds of Dortmunder. They still played a great set...but were defanitely buzzed at the end of the set. If you are ever in Cleveland at Now That's Class for a show they have a great selection of microbrews and vary their tap selection. Was drinking Oak Arrogant Bastard last Sunday while watching some doom bands....and the Genessee Cream Ale as the night went on.

    I was pumped when I saw that video! Not only because Pig Destroyer is putting out another record but because of the whole fridge thing, I didn't even think to post it on here. Good call man.

    i agree, BUT, a month or so ago i went and saw Phobia and was dismayed to see myself, my girlfriend, and a buddy of mine as the only people enjoying craft beer in a sea of PBR tallboys...

    I'm not a big metal fan but Witte is an awesome guy and is a true Advocate wherever he goes.

    Probably a reference to the "Cascadian Dark Ale"...
