PARTNERSHIP WITH REAL ALE BREWING COMPANY PRODUCES IRON SWAN BEER

Spreading their entrepreneurial wings, the band is also pleased to announce the launch of a second branded beer, Iron Swan. The beer, in partnership with Texas-based Real Ale Brewing Company, marks the band’s second foray into the beer universe following the launch last fall of Winters Wolves in partnership with Baltimore, Maryland based brewery Oliver Ales. Iron Swan will officially launch at the end of July with the four Texas shows that begin the summer tour.

Real Ale Brewing Company says the following about Iron Swan: 

“Our newest canned offering is a tribute to the song that first introduced us to a packaging hall favorite, The Sword. Iron Swan pours a deep copper color and has an enticing intro of fruit and caramel with subtle hints of earth and spice. This medium bodied ale showcases the fruitiness of our house ale strain, along with the rich toffee flavors of English crystal malt. Added complexity is provided by generous amounts of English hops. Iron Swan finishes slightly dry with a mild spiciness that beckons another can. Fire up your turntable and audition Iron Swan yourself.”
