Metal & Beer Fest Pairing & Killing: Gatecreeper + Wake

In our series Pairing & Killing, we bring you our favorite picks for combinations of beers and bands from Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Los Angeles 2019 lineup. “Metal & Beer” tickets for the event, which takes place on Friday and Saturday, December 13-14 at the Observatory Santa Ana, are down to the last 200 tickets!

This year, we welcome back Wake, a brewery that debuted at last year’s Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Los Angeles. Their one-of-a-kind collaboration with death metal new jacks Gatecreeper, Boiled Over Lager, will be unveiled at Metal & Beer Fest: LA! At a low 4.5% ABV, Boiled Over Lager is a crisp, clean crusher brewed to fuel the pit!

“The Gatecreeper and Wake collaboration Boiled Over has been really great, the dudes in Gatecreeper were very specific on style of beer. They wanted something light, easy drinking with no fruit bullshit it in,” says Jason Parris, Co-Owner of Wake Brewing. “So we decided on a Light Lager, at only 4.5% you could spend your whole time at the Metal & Beer Fest crushing these in the pit.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Wake Brewing to unleash our Boiled Over Lager at the fest,” Gatecreeper vocalist Chase Mason tells Decibel. “They listened to our suggestions on what we wanted and didn’t want for the beer and we put together some really cool packaging for it. I think it’s going to look great AND taste great!”
