Deftones announce White Pony anniversary beer with Belching Beaver Brewery

- By Ramon Gonzales

The sixth collaboration beer marks the 20th anniversary of the band's seminal record.

Continuing a partnership that began in 2016, Deftones have announced the next installment in their series of collaboration beers with San Deigo-based brewery, Belching Beaver.

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the band's seminal White Pony album, the band has developed a double dry hopped IPA aptly titled, White Pony. The beer is the sixth joint project between the two entities - a definitive, enduring example of the kinship between the quality of the product and the appeal of the presentation.

Frontman Chino Moreno issued the following regarding the release, "Our approach to beer is similar to how we approach our music, it’s constantly changing and evolving to help ensure we’re releasing a quality product that we stand behind. With our wonderful partners at Belching Beaver, we’re proud to have collaborated on yet another beer that has been created with care, and released with pride. We hope everyone enjoys our White Pony 20th IPA, as much as we do."

“To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of White Pony, we felt the best way to honor this milestone was to collaborate on a beer loaded with flavor, so we pumped the volume, and double dry hopped this India Pale Ale,” said Marc Truex Director of Sales. “This added an extra layer of hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, resulting in a juicy tropical IPA.”

Accented with pineapple, lemon peel, and grapefruit flavor notes, the beer is brimming with a melody of Simcoe, Hallertau Blanc, Mandarina Bavaria, Mosaic, Amarillo, Citra hops. At 7%, the alcohol is enough to remind you of what you are drinking but doesn't outshine the tropical finish.

The collaboration beer will roll out to retailers in select U.S. states via 16-ounce can four-packs and a select amount on draft, beginning on August 28. In addition, it will be available at all Belching Beaver Brewery locations.
