BERLIN, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Metallica and Stone Brewing's Arrogant Consortia imprint bring Enter Night Pilsner to Europe. The beer brewed at Stone Brewing - Berlin is available as of now in over 30 countries in Europe.
The Enter Night Pilsner, a dry-hopped Pilsner, is a unique expression of the shared values that have helped define Metallica and Stone Brewing: fiercely independent, transcending genres, shattering preconceptions and challenging convention.
"The amount of ideals and outlooks that Metallica and Stone Brewing share are endless. I'm always blown away about how similar our paths forward have been," says Metallica's Lars Ulrich. "We saw how much our fans liked Enter Night Pilsner on the US tour, and we're thrilled to be able to share it with fans during the European tour as well."
"I remember seeing Metallica on the cover of a magazine just after the Black Album was released," recalls Greg Koch, co-founder of Stone Brewing. "On the cover was a quote that resonated with me to this day: 'Metallica didn't go to number one, number one came to them.' I loved what that meant. Do it your way and never compromise your art. If you're great at what you do people will come. I view that simple quote as one of the founding philosophical elements of Stone Brewing."
Marcus Thieme, Vice President & General Manager European Operations Stone Brewing, adds, "We are incredibly proud to brew Enter Night Pilsner for the European markets here at Stone Brewing in Berlin. This beer is a high quality dry-hopped Pilsner, which we're excited to say will be available as one of our year-round core beers. Enter Night Pilsner is here to stay!"
Aside from its intense drinkability, craft enthusiasts will note Enter Night Pilsner's remarkable flavor and aroma which artfully combine the beauty of a traditional Northern German Pilsner with modern overtones of aggression. The resulting genre-defying dry-hopped pilsner is hop forward with sound bitterness on the finish.
