Swedish progressive rock band OPETH have announced the production of their second beer, Communion Pale Ale. Teaming up again with Northern Monk Brew Co., the new brew will be available starting April 22nd.

Following their limited run of 2015’s XXV Anniversary Imperial Stout, OPETH have opted to take a different approach with their second beer as their choice in drinks is as varied as the music they create. Available in cans it’s a lighter beer than OPETH’s first offering, but still packs a punch full of flavor.

Head brewer Brian Dickson of Northern Monk Brew Co comments: "After the success of the XXV Anniversary Stout, it's great to be continuing our collaboration with the guys from OPETH. This time we have come up with an easy drinking American Pale Ale with a solid UK malt backbone over which we layered lots of classic US hop varieties including Equinox and Citra. Expect pine, spice and all the punchy citrus you'd expect of the style, perfect gig refreshment!”

The Northern Monk Co opened in late 2014 in Holbeck, Leeds and have quickly established themselves as producing some of the highest quality and exciting beers in the UK with their New World IPA, Northern Star Mocha Porter and Eternal Session IPA. OPETH and Northern Monk came together to celebrate the band’s 25th anniversary by producing last year’s XXV Anniversary Imperial Stout. The Communion Pale Ale is the second product to emerge from the collaboration between the band and brewery, as both parties realized they held similar ideals in how they approached their ‘craft’.

To celebrate the release, Northern Monk Brewery will be holding a free-entry release party at their tap-room in Leeds on April 22nd, from 6 PM. OPETH guitarist Fredrik Akesson will also be there at the launch, celebrating the release of the Communion Pale Ale with a special DJ set.

Akesson comments: “The best drink in the world has now surprisingly got even better for life sustaining wealth! I hope to see you at the launch party on Friday April 22nd at the Northern Monk Refectory where you can enjoy some of our excellent Communion Pale Ale and I’m looking forward to spinning some tunes behind the DJ booth.”

On the night Northern Monk will be running a special launch offer for six cans of the Communion Pale Ale and a limited edition OPETH t-shirt for £25.

The Communion Pale Ale will initially only be available in the UK but Northern Monk Brew Co will be distributing it in 12 other countries over the next couple of months and it will be rolled out globally in time. Please note this is not a limited edition beer like the XXV Anniversary Stout so there will be plenty available.

If you’re based in the UK you can order online direct from Northern Monk Brew Co. right HERE.

If you’re in the Leeds area you can visit the brewery and their tap room and pick up some beer in person – Northern Monk, The Old Flax Store, Marshalls Hill, Holbeck, LS11 9YJ.
