Bayside Launch Their Own IPA Craft Beer


Bayside have launched their own limited edition IPA craft beer to celebrate the upcoming release of their new album "Vacancy," which is set to hit stores on August 19th.

The band teamed up with craft-beer-in-a-can brewery Oskar Blues for the new beer which they call "Bayside Black." Guitarist Jack O'Shea had this to say in the announcement, "I've been a big fan of Oskar Blues for a long time and it's amazing that we get to collaborate with them. It's one of my favorite styles of beer and one of my favorite breweries. I can't wait to try some!"

The new beer will be limited to 100 barrels and will be available at Total Wine & More, as well as select venues on the band's upcoming North American tour, as well as part of a pre-order bundle for the new album via Craftshack (in participating states).

Oskar Blues' Head Brewer at Oskar Blues Brewery Lyons Juice Drapeau had this to say about the special brew, "The challenges of creating a Black IPA is that when creating a recipe, one has to be very careful to balance the hop bitterness and malt bitterness.

"Dark malts can have astringent characteristics to them so the key is to really achieve a clean hop bitterness to compliment the potential malt bitterness. Also, another important aspect of Black IPAs is to layer a variety of crystal malts and dark malts so that the malt character in the beer has a lot of depth and complexity."

Bayside will be supported by The Menzingers and Sorority Noise on their North American tour which is set to kick off on August 11th in Ft. Lauderdale, FL at Revolution and conclude on September 18th in Nashville, TN at Exit/In.
