Last year, the members of Anthrax were hanging out at Daddy-O and mentioned to owner Phil Casacelli how they’d love to have their own brand of beer. Casacelli, a long-time fan of upstate New York’s Butternuts Beer & Ale Brewery, made a call to Williamson, a metalhead and a big Anthrax fan, and everything started to fall into place for what would become Anthrax’s own craft beer, Wardance. The band was involved in the development of the pale ale and wanted a distinct taste that not only they liked, but that their fans would like as well.
