Adroit Theory Announce Beers for Decibel Metal & Beer Fest

At the inaugural Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, the two most frequently asked questions were: “Will this be an annual festival?” usually followed by “Will Adroit Theory be there next year?” The answer to both questions was a resounding yes, so we spoke with Adroit Theory’s Mark Osborne to learn what beers they’ll be bringing to the festival, including a collab with Dan Lilker (Anthrax, Nuclear Assault, Brutal Truth, SOD, everything).

Therapy Sessions – Imperial Stout with Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee, Toasted Coconut, Hazelnut, and Bourbon Infused Honey. Big and boozy, but with beautiful adjuncts to make it incredible. ABV 13%
Illusion of Safety – Passion Fruit + Pink Guava Gose. Tart and outrageously fruity. Is it beer or is it alcoholic fruit juice? ABV 4.5%
Tenebris – Double Barrel Aged Barleywine. As complex as beer gets. Aged in Meyers Dark Rum Barrels before being conditioned in Bourbon Barrels. It’s a BOOZY one for sure. ABV 10%
Personal Coma – Northeast Style Double IPA. Hazy, juicy, aromatic, yet low bitterness. Can you say crushable? This is the beer we brewed with Dan Lilker. ABV 8.5%. Note, this is a working title.

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!
