Opeth will launch their second beer later this month, following the success of their XXV Anniversary Imperial Stout last year.

Communion Pale Ale made with British malt and US hops by the Northern Monk Brew Company in Leeds, who describe it as containing “pine, spice and punchy citrus.”

Guitarist Fredrik Akesson will attend the launch event at the brewery’s taproom on April 22, delivering a DJ set while the beer is introduced.

He says: “The best drink in the world has now surprisingly got even better. I look forward to seeing you at the party and I’m looking forward to spinning some tunes.”

Communion Pale Ale – named after Opeth’s 11th album Pale Communion – will initially be available in the UK only, but it’s set to be distributed elsewhere in the coming months. It will be on sale via the Northern Monk website.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
