There’s a lot of Motorhead branded booze out there between wine, whisky and beer and the trend shows no sign of slowing down! Collaborating with Amplified Ale Works, Motorhead will be issuing two more signature brews: ‘Born to Lose’ IPA and ‘Live to Win’ IPA.
The first to arrive will be the ‘Born to Lose’ IPA, which is a “boldly aggressive West Coast-style IPA” that packs 6.5 percent ABV. Brewed with Cascade, Simcoe and Citra hops for an earthy aroma and notes of fresh citrus. Adding a personal touch, Maris Otter, a British malt, was also used in the brewing process as a tribute to the band’s roots, cutting the beer’s bitterness with a sweet quality.
Seen above is the artwork for the ‘Born to Lose’ IPA can, an original design from the Los Angeles-based artist Jack Gregory. The war-torn dystopian scene features members of Motorhead as well as some other rough ‘n’ tumble characters wielding high-powered guns and bats wrapped in barbed wire.
Fans looking to imbibe the latest Motorhead beer can purchase directly from Amplified Ale Works’ San Diego locations as well as TheBeerConnect website with refrigerated shipping throughout California. If you’re looking to get your hands on the ‘Live to Win IPA,’ you’ll have to wait a little longer as the beer is slated for release at an undisclosed time later this year.
It’s been a strong year for Motorhead’s growing line of alcohol as the brand new Motorhead Road Crew beer recently nabbed the ‘Best Newcomer‘ award at the 2017 Carouser Awards, even beating out Iron Maiden‘s ‘Trooper Red ‘N’ Black’ porter.
