Dave Mustaine has said he’ll hold a birthday party to celebrate the launch of his new beer.
It was announced last month that the Megadeth leader would bring out the A Tout Le Monde brew. And he says he wants to give Megadeth fans the first chance to try the beer – so he’s inviting them to attend a birthday bash he’s planning to celebrate his 55th birthday on September 13.
He says in a video message: “Hi, I’m Dave Mustaine – you may know me from Twitter. This year, I’m turning 55 and you know me, I like an excuse to have a party and to celebrate with my fans with my own beer.
“I guess you could say I’ve done my fair share of drinking in my life, so believe me when I say this beer is the real deal.
“My friends at Unibroue helped me craft something special which will appeal to everyone, or A Tout Le Monde as the French people say, and now I’m inviting you to the biggest birthday party ever – mine.
“It’s going to be one for the ages. We’ll get to hang out, and you’ll be the first to taste my brand new beer. Of course, there’s going to be loud music – very loud music.
“So take the day off – actually, take a day off after the party, too. Mark your calendar and come and meet me on my birthday. The countdown to extinction has begun.”
Final party details will be revealed in due course, while fans are encouraged to sign up for email alerts by visiting the beer’s website.
