Draft Leppard: Joe Elliott Gets His Own Beer
Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott is about to launch his own beer in Dublin.
It’s being brewed and bottled by The Porterhouse, and will be available in their bars.
Says Elliott: “Over the years I’ve noticed a lot of musicians putting their names to a variety of wines etc which, as nice as a glass of red or white is, well, it’s not very rock and roll is it?!
“Beer or lager seem to be the drink of choice at nearly every gig I’ve ever played or attended so for me it’s a much cooler thing to do and having seen how The Porterhouse put quality over quantity.”
Elliott’s beer is described as “a pilsner style” that has “a deep, rich malt character, with generous hop bitterness”.
The launch takes place on Wednesday, 15 September at The Porterhouse North Rock Garden in Glasnevin.
