Last night (March 28), members of Anthrax, specifically guitarists Scott Ian and Jonathan Donais, celebrated the release of their own craft beer, Wardance Pale Ale, with a special ‘beer crawl’ in New York City. Antics kicked off at 6PM at the award-winning watering hole Daddy-O on Bedford Street in the West Village. Within moments, the popular bar was packed to the brim with metalheads pounding down pints of the tasty pale ale.
Like ducks in a row, fans marched to the pub crawl’s next stops, the chic Half Pint on West 3rd Street followed by the One Mile House on the Lower East Side, where even Life of Agony bassist Alan Robert was seen joining in on the booze ceremony. Chuck Williamson, owner and head brewer of Butternuts Beer & Ale Brewery, where ‘Wardance’ was born, was on hand to mingle with and talk to bar-hoppers about the brand new brew. The party continued with custom ‘Wardance’ pint glasses filled with the delicious and smooth ale being served nonstop to thirsty patrons. Meanwhile, friends of Anthrax helped commemorate the occasion by giving away special ‘Wardance’ t-shirts and stickers to lively fans in attendance.
