AC/DC 3/10/22

AC/DC has just announced “For Those About to Rock” Ale via Half Time Beverage. The new officially sanctioned beer is available to ship to 33 U.S. states. For a special limited time, the first 500 customers get a 12×15 print insert free with your purchase.

 According to the press release:

AC/DC’s For Those About to Rock Ale (5.9%) is cold fermented for the cool, crisp, refreshing flavor you’d expect from a seasonal Australian lager.

By combining traditional Australian brewing methods with native Aussie hops and cane sugar, the brewers have developed a highly drinkable beer that is true to its heritage, with a clean citrusy hop profile, a subtle malty sweetness, and a bright straw color.

Frontman Brian Johnson told us that despite the decades flying by, AC/DC stays the same: [“There’s one important thing I think is very important, is we’ve never changed. The band has never, ever changed. As one interviewer said to Angus (Young), ‘Y’know, you’ve made 15 albums, Angus, and they’re all the same.’ And Angus said, ‘That’s not true. We’ve made 17 albums, and they’re all the same.'”] SOUNDCUE (:14 OC: . . . all the same)
