Grammy-nominated heavy metal band Killswitch Engage is teaming up with Cigar City Brewing to honor the 15th anniversary of its album “Alive or Just Breathing” with a beer called Alive or Just Brewing.
Due to the band’s Massachusetts roots, they’ve created a New England-style IPA with Citra, Mosaic, Motueka and nelson sauvin hops. Alive or Just Brewing clocks in at 7.6 percent ABV with 55 IBUs.
Featured on the label is the artwork of bassist Mike D’Antonio, the artist behind the band’s album artwork and merchandise designs.
The limited-release beer will be available in 22-ounce bottles sometime in May 2017. The beer release will coincide with the release of an LP version of “Alive or Just Breathing.”
