Spoonwood, Coheed and Cambria Collaborate on Screamin’ Danger IPA
Spoonwood Brewing has been up and running for just over a year and has brought some pretty remarkable beers to the table. They’ve quickly established themselves as a major player in Pittsburgh’s craft beer scene and have experienced considerable growth and success since opening their doors January 31st, 2015.
One of their signature beers is Good Eye Sniper, a well-balanced Double IPA whose name is derived from the song A Favor House Atlantic by one of Head Brewer Steve Ilnicki and Assistant Brewer James Evans’ favorite bands, Coheed and Cambria. The beer has been one of the more popular offerings in Spoonwood’s lineup and pays tribute to Coheed in a hoppy way.
With Coheed set to perform at Stage AE on March 1st, Spoonwood Brewing and the band came together to create another Coheed-inspired brew called Screamin’ Danger IPA, a lyric from the song Island off Coheed’s new album The Color Before The Sun. This juicy, fruity, hop-forward IPA is currently pouring in the Spoonwood taproom and at Pig Iron Public House throughout February during Spoonwood’s February Tap Takeover. Spoonwood and Coheed are also working on having the beer available at the show on March 1st and rumors of a pre-concert tailgate party have been circulating as well.
Screamin’ Danger will also be released in bottles in the near future. The label (seen below) contains artwork provided by Coheed and Cambria, with the finished product created by Jason Collins.
