Consider this your wake-up call: We’re a mere 3 months away from kicking off what will surely be the biggest Metal & Beer Fest to date in our home town of Philadelphia. While you may feel like you have plenty of time to pick out your favorite battle vest and whet your palate for all of the tasty brews that will be available, the time is now to consider the logistics of your stay in the City of Brotherly Love. If you haven’t already, book your plane ticket, line up a hotel room (or your buddy’s least dirty floor) and make sure the babysitter knows where your kids are, because we certainly don’t want you to miss any of the action lined up for what will be the craziest Decibel event yet. And if you haven’t purchased your Metal & Beer Fest ticket yet, what the hell are you waiting for?! Our “Metal & Beer” ticket option is nearly sold out! With four full album sets lined up from a wide spectrum of metal royalty as well as nearly 20 of the most metal breweries in the craft beer world scheduled to pour (including newly announced Mocama Beer Company), the pay off will be worth the hassle of planning ahead. Get your tickets below and get ready for what will be a truly sinful summer!
