Controversial band Ghost Bath is the latest to collaborate with Drew Phillips and the McMenamins Crystal Ballroom brew team on a new beer to be released at the bands show Wednesday, July 13th at Lola’s Room in the Crystal Ballroom. Ghost Bath is controversial because their name refers to the act of committing suicide by submerging in a body of water. The beer, part of the Blasphemous Series of band collabs, is a “funerary” saison.
Portraying both deep anguish and angelic soundscapes, they promise to leave an impression on the listener. Having done just that, the product for the fourth Blasphemous Collaboration was born. The “funerary” Saison was brewed in collaboration with black metallurgists Ghost Bath. Itself a refreshing ale featuring many classic Saison flavors and aromas, Moonlover is meant to evoke sights & smells of 19th century wakes & funerals. Boasting a distinct floral aroma that was imparted by the addition of organic elderflower post-fermentation, Moonlover also underwent the process of minor kettle souring. Grassy Tettnanger Hops lend an earthiness to the brew, balancing the light, bready body of Pilsen Malt. Unmalted Wheat & the naturally cloudy yeast strain give the ale a “ghostly” appearance. This show is 21 & over.
BONUS: Friend of the band has thrown some special edition ceramic mugs for drinking and they will be available at the show.
