The Sword Announce North American Tour and New Beer

The Sword have announced North American summer tour in support of their latest album, Apocrypha, and they will be launching their next beer brand this summer.

The 25-date North American trek is set to kick off on July 25th in Dallas TX at Granada and will be concluding on August 23rd in Baton Rouge LA at Spanish Moon.

The group also announced that they have teamed up with Real Ale Brewing Company out Texas to launch their latest branded beer, which they are calling "Iron Swan."

"Iron Swan" will be the group's second branded beer, following the launch of their "Winters Wolves" last fall. The band will be officially launching "Iron Swan" in late July when their tour kicks off with a string of shows in Texas, according to the announcement.

Real Ale Brewing Company had the following description of the new beer, "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."
