Ever since we partnered with Weyerbacher Brewing on this year’s Metal & Beer Fest we knew that we wanted the Easton, PA-based brewery to head up the creation of the official beer of the 2018 festival. The only parameters Decibel set were to make something dark yet crushable; the rest we left up to the pros!
“When we were asked to brew the official beer of Decibel Magazine’s Metal & Beer Fest, we knew it had to be dark enough for an extreme metal festival and crushable enough to propel hours of headbanging. Thus Infinite Eclipse, Weyerbacher’s first Blackened American Stout, was born. We balanced an intense amount of roast with a semi-sweet and full-bodied feel, and rounded it out at a drinkable 7% ABV. Raise a glass and your fist!”
Infinite Eclipse will be poured for the first time at Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, and will be available in 16-oz cans and on draft at various bars and where Weyerbacher is sold around the Philadelphia region.

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 Oliver Brewing table, sample a “Howling, For the Nightmare Shall Consume” beer, co-brewed by Integrity and consume it WHILE you watch Integrity!
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.”
