ME­TAL’S MOD­ERN­DAY CRU­SADERS

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Revelation­s -

You see the likes of Maiden, Mastodon, Deftones, Me­gadeth and Motör­head bring­ing out beers ev­ery month, but TRVE Brew­ing level up that game by be­ing an ac­tual heavy me­tal brew­ery and tap­room in Den­ver, Colorado.

“Every­body says it’s a ge­nius mar­ket­ing idea but I just love beer and me­tal, so I thought, ‘I’m just go­ing to jam them to­gether.’ That was the thought process! Ha ha!” laughs brew­ery founder Nick Nunns, who says their Cursed beer – a sour pale ale homage to Rotten Sound

– is their most pop­u­lar. Com­ing up with the recipes, how­ever, is Zach Cole­man, drum­mer with doom rock­ers Khem­mis. So, why are metalheads so at­tracted to the world of al­co­holic suds?

“It’s these two com­mu­ni­ties of weirdos. Just as much as metalheads are fuck­ing ma­ni­acs who are su­per-into what they’re into, it’s the same thing with brew­ers,” ex­plains Nick. “There are these peo­ple who want to get su­per-nerdy into brew­ing some­thing that’s not ter­ri­bly main­stream. It’s that men­tal­ity of not want­ing the nor­mal shit. It ex­cites my brain and my senses in the same way.”
