DEICIDE Teams Up with Craft Beer Masters 3 Floyds; ‘The Light Defeated Stout’ To Debut at Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest!

With Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly 2024 now less than one month away, we are honored to reveal the exclusive beer collaboration between Florida death metal legends Deicide and Indiana craft beer institution (and presenting brewery) 3 Floyds!

Presenting: The Light Defeated—named after the closing track from Deicide’s forthcoming new album, Banished by Sin (out April 26 on Reigning Phoenix Music)— making its pouring debut on April 12-13 at the Philadelphia edition of Decibel’s long-running extreme metal and craft beer event!

“When I first heard the lambs bleating in the opening of ‘Satan Spawn, the Caco-Daemon’ I was hooked,” says 3 Floyds’ Brewmaster Chris Boggess. “Growing up in the buckle of the Bible Belt it was the sickest, scariest thing I’d ever heard. Deicide are one of the classic American death metal bands. And The Light Defeated is brewed in their honor, our take on a classic American style stout with the ABV coming in at 6.66%.”

An extremely limited number of “Metal & Beer” tickets—a deluxe ticket that includes unlimited samples of all 15 of the breweries all weekend—granting access to The Light Defeated are still available. But unlike Glen Benton’s hatred of Christ, they won’t be around much longer, so grab yours now! Full daily band and brewery lineups—and all ticket options—are below.
