Megadeth Announces New Beer With a Kick

Saison 13 is coming to the U.S. next month

August 20, 2019

Megadeth is releasing a new beer, and like the band, it comes with a little extra octane.

Saison 13, with an ABV of 6.1%, is the thrash metal icons’ second entry into the brewing market. The beer is available in parts of Canada now and is expected to debut in the U.S. next month.

Saisons are typically described as highly-carbonated pale ales that are fruity or spicy, but an official description hasn’t been released yet. Still, we hear the beer pairs well with songs like “Peace Sells,” Sweating Bullets” and “Symphony of Destruction.”

Megadeth is teaming once again with Canadian brewery Unibroue to produce Saison 13. The beer is the follow-up to their A Tout Le Monde.

“Put some loud music on and find out for yourself,” frontman Dave Mustaine said in the teaser for the first beer. “The next round is on me.”

Megadeth is currently taking it easy in the touring department as Mustaine undergoes treatment for throat cancer, but that doesn’t mean the music is stopping. The 57-year-old continues to spend time in the studio with the band as they work on the follow-up to 2016’s Dystopia.
