Thirsty? Try Def Leppard’s New Brew

Def Leppard is rolling out a new ale: Def Leppard Pale, just in time for their tour dates with Journey.

The band has teamed up with Seattle’s Elysian Brewing Company to conjure up the brew, ready to serve by  May 23 (the second date of their tour). It will be available at most stops on their tour, as well as select bars and restaurants.

“It tastes great – that’s the most important thing I can tell you,” singer Joe Elliott tells Billboard.  “Iron Maiden has a beer named Trooper and they’ve done really well with theirs. We have to see if we can match that. It’s been around five years or so by now, so there’s a long way to go to keep up with them and all these other people [with branded alcohol such as] Jimmy Buffett. We don’t know what kind of legs it’s going to have — come back to me in a couple years on that one, I’m not gazing into a crystal ball right now.”

We can tell you this: the can looks rock star cool!
