News of the IPA version was first posted on 19th January on the blog called 'My Beer Buzz' and more details followed.

The beer will be available from 23rd May at the Albany, NY show.

It is being sold at the venue and in the surrounding "restaurants, bars and pubs". It will then be available in "select US cities" during the North American tour.

Billboard - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

"It tastes great - that's the most important thing I can tell you. I would pass on doing an interview about this if I didn't like it. That to me is the most important thing."

"They're great, they're confident, they seem very rock n’ roll and we like that,” Elliott says of working with Elysian. “We like the people we're working with, we like the beverage, and that's a great way to start."

"Some stage down the road, maybe we’d do a wine."
