Def Leppard release pale ale with Elysian Brewing

British hair metal band Def Leppard have teamed up with Seattle’s Elysian Brewing Company to launch Def Leppard Pale, which will be available as a limited release on their upcoming tour with Journey.

The 6% abv Def Leppard Pale is set to debut on May 23, on the second stop of the band’s tour in Albany, New York, and “at most concerts and at select restaurants, bars and pubs near the venue” throughout the tour.

“Def Leppard Pale is what happens when a mega British rock band collides with an American craft brewery,” said Elysian of the tie-up. “Both fanatics of their craft, Def Leppard and Elysian are excited to blend their worlds together, music and beer.”

The beer was brewed with Premium 2 Row, Munich and CaraHell malts, with Cascade, Simcoe, Chinook, and Magnum hops. The can was designed as a tribute to the 30th anniversary of Def Leppard’s landmark album, Hysteria.

Elysian’s co-founder Joe Bisacca stated: “We had the idea here that the beer should celebrate something of the band and something of us. The best of British beer is the malt body and that beautiful malt balance. And the best thing about American beer is the citrus, piney hops.

“So we’ve taken those two aspects, put them together and come up with a beer you can actually drink a few of — 6% abv you can drink all night long.”
