Blood Junkie collaboration by Three Weav3rs brewing and Prosthetic Records is an 8.7% ABV Imperial Red Ale.
From our ears to your glass, blood junkie is a ruby hued Imperial Red Ale, brewed in collaboration with our hop obsessed, heavy metal friends at prosthetic records in Inglewood, California. Big and malt driven, yet dry and balanced with a bright hop finish, blooded junkie will have you throwing horns!
Fuck Yeah! As I was saying before, more bands and music group enjoy the craftbeer scene. Might as well collaborate. This time, Prosthetic Records, a record label specializing in heavy metal bands here in Los Angeles has contributed their expertise to help make a truly unique and rich heavy metal brew. I have tried this before back when I first visited Three Weav3rs last year on tap and I do remember how rich this was both hoppy and malty sides creating some kind of bloody like flavors. It could just be my mind is crazy but it must be the crazy ingredients that were good. Now that they brought it to the bottle form I can bring it to the site for you to see if you would like to try this. Cheers!

Metal like Iron… Maiden… or Blood, well just kidding, but the bitterness of the hops does make it similar. Citrus, Grapefruit, piney grassy, floral, herbal and earthy dank hops, rye bread with tangerine preserves, toffee, caramel, tropical fruit mango, passion fruit, papaya, dragon fruit, guavas, pineapple, prickly pears, honey dew melon,, dark fruit raisins, dark cherries, chocolate notes, coconut hints, marshmallow hints, biscuit bread, toasted bread with guava membrillo, brown sugar hints, coriander spice, and tangerine gummies.
Finishing with Tropical fruits forward, dank piney, citrusy and earthy hops along with rich rye bread, caramel, toffee and dark fruit hints. No alcohol in the taste, super crimson medium body, silky, smooth and mildly creamy mouthfeel with a moderate drinkability.
A very delicious brew. This one is more of a Red IPA than it is a Red Ale. Although the hops in this one vary to make it more like a slight bloody taste. Maybe it’s just in my mind. I think they may have gone with this with the whole metal aspect. The rest of the flavors are awesome though and complex. Definitely worth a try.
Scanty and Kneesocks from Panty and Stocking were used in this pairing for the very obvious reasons of using the Red, Blood and Devil aspect of the beer to pair. Sacnty being Three Weavers and the Kneesocks being Prosthetic Records. The colors like the Reds with the Greens of Scanty’s hair pairs well with the color of the hops that makes up this green and red bloody beer. This beer is such a deal and metal beer, I had to make it work with the awesome theme!
