One of the highlights of any beer festival is the unique one-off collaborations between attending breweries, a direct result of extreme beer nerds getting together. But Decibel Metal & Beer Fest isn’t just any beer festival. For evidence, look no further than this collaboration between hardcore legends and Integrity and Baltimore’s heaviest brewery, Oliver Brewing Co. “Howling, for the Nightmare Shall Consume,” named after Integrity’s critically acclaimed 2017 LP, will be available in limited quantities at Decibel Metal & Beer Fest in Philadelphia on March 31 and April 1.
“Being invited to participate in Decibel Magazine’s Metal and Beer Fest is a dream come true for me,” says Oliver founder Steve Jones of this special Belgian-style brew. “Collaborating with a musical force of the status of Integrity truly is the icing on the cake, a vindication of everything I’ve been trying to achieve pairing beer and music.”
“What could be better than the golden taste of a Belgian blonde beer fused with the devilry of metal music?” asks Integrity founder and frontman Dwid Hellion. “This unholy libation truly embodies the essence of our latest album, Howling, for the Nightmare Shall Consume. Consume your very own nightmare at the Decibel Metal and Beer Fest!”

Metal & Beer Fest FAQs
What are my ticket options?
You can purchase a one- or two-day “Metal & Beer Ticket,” which allows you to watch all bands performing. It also gives you access to samples from all 20 breweries who will be at Decibel Metal and Beer Fest, as well as access to all breweries and bars plus a Decibel Metal and Beer Fest tasting cup.
You may also purchase a one- or two- day “Just Metal” ticket (limited to 500 each day) that grants you access to all four bars on the first floor, as well as the ability to see each band playing. You will also have the opportunity to purchase samples of featured breweries from the bar.
How much does it cost?
“Metal & Beer” tickets are $80 for one day and $150 for both.
“Just Metal” tickets are $42 for one day and $82 for both.
If you bought four craft beers at the fest, you would be spending more than $40. The “Metal and Beer Ticket” pays for itself and then some!
Are the breweries in an area separate from the bands?
No, Decibel Metal & Beer Fest is a fully integrated fan experience. You can walk over to the 3 Floyds table, sample a “Blood of the Sunsets” beer, co-brewed by At the Gates, WHILE you watch At the Gates!
Is the event 21+, even if I purchase a “Just Metal” ticket?
Yes, the event is strictly 21+.
Will there be bottles/cans/etc. available to purchase from the breweries?
Nope. The only way to guarantee you can try every beer you want is to purchase a weekend-long “Metal & Beer Ticket.”
Can I get a “Just Beer” ticket?
No. Leave the hall, poser.
