Orchestra Show Inspired Megadeth Wine


(Metal Hammer) Dave Mustaine's foray into making wine and beer started out as an attempt to make sure fans of heavy metal and classical music could all get along together, he's revealed.

And the co-creator of Megadeth's beer has explained why he insisted it should have the lowest alcohol content his brewery have ever made. The drink, called A Tout Le Monde after the band's 1994 track, was launched Friday (October 21).

Mustaine decided to release his own wine as he worked on a show with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra in 2014. He tells Forbes: "You've got people wearing leather jackets who'd probably never worn leather other than belts and shoes.

"And you've got headbangers who've gone out and rented tuxedos. It was a cute kind of thing, and the wine was a social lubricant." The experiment led to the creation of Mustaine Vineyards, and later he began working with Unibroue brewer Jerry Vietz to create the 4.5% beer. Read more here.
