A week before they return home to Scranton for their fifth annual NEPA Holiday Show, The Menzingers will debut their first-ever collaboration beer with Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company at the brewery on Saturday, Dec. 12.

Making the announcement in the above video on Nov. 19, the brewery, located just outside of Philadelphia, described the brewing process on Facebook:

In late October 2015, Philly punk/rock outfit The Menzingers stopped by Neshaminy Creek Brewing to brew a special collaboration beer, an 8% ABV hoppy Imperial American Kölsch-style ale we’ve appropriately dubbed, Menzinger. Brewed with a stupid amount of Amarillo, Simcoe, Equinox, and Mandarina Bavaria hops, and fermented with an authentic German Kölsch yeast, we dry hopped the hell out of this beer with over 3.5 pounds per barrel of Equinox and Amarillo hops!

The draft-only beer will be released during a free unplugged acoustic concert on Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Neshaminy Creek Tap Room (909 Ray Ave., Croydon) with The Menzingers, Broadcaster, and one soon-to-be-announced special guest.

“Menzinger is a small batch, Tap Room exclusive brew, so it won’t last long,” the brewery noted in the announcement.

This isn’t the first time Neshaminy Creek has created a music-themed beer – The Shape of Hops to Come is an Imperial IPA named after the 1998 album “The Shape of Punk to Come” by influential Swedish punk band Refused.
