Fat Mike Presents Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival Featuring NOFX, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion

Created from the mind and liver of NOFX‘s frontman Fat Mike, the Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival will debut in the Western U.S. this fall with five special events featuring the best in punk rock music and regional craft beer.

Named for NOFX’s classic Punk In Drublic album, which has sold over one million copies, Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival launches September 16 in Tacoma, WA, with stops in Boise, ID, Concord, CA, Sacramento, CA, and Huntington Beach, CA. NOFX will co-headline each date of Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival alongside Flogging Molly in some markets and Bad Religion in others​, and every show will also feature four other​ bands. Look for full details to be announced in August at www.PunkInDrublicFest.com.

Each Punk In Drublic festival date will feature up to four hours of craft beer tastings with over 100 craft beers, including some of the West Coast’s best and local favorites. Craft beer tastings are included with admission. Festival hours will be Noon – 9:00 PM.

Fat Mike has joined forces with premier music event producer/promoter Synergy Global Entertainment and respected craft beer event production powerhouse Brew Ha Ha Productions for the festival. In addition, to celebrate Punk In Drublic, Fat Mike teamed up with craft beer pioneers Stone Brewing to brew their very own Stone & NOFX Punk in Drublic Hoppy Lager, which will be available in cans only in the festival markets. This collaboration is a huge show of support by Stone, as it marks the first time ever that Stone has worked with a musician for a can release. They’ve even included the festival tour dates on the back of each can. This is a first-of-its-kind level of commitment from a brewery partner for a festival tour.

When asked how Stone & NOFX Punk in Drublic Hoppy Lager tastes, Fat Mike says, “It’s something to wash the noise away.” However, other slogans offered by Mike that were quickly turned down by Stone included, “It’s the beer of champagnes” and finally, “They say you can’t get beer from a stone…oh shit, we just did!”

“We know we’re crazy for letting Fat Mike in our brewery, but we’re doing it anyway,” says Greg Koch, Stone Brewing co-founder. “We have a lot in common in not only refusing to follow the status quo, but actively rejecting it. I have incredible respect for what he and Fat Wreck Chords have done for the independent music scene. Craft beer is currently in a similar open-your-eyes-to-the-man’s-corporate-obfuscation battle. Is independent craft beer punk rock? Very. And even more so now with this collab. See you in the pit!”

Cameron Collins, Co-Founder & Director of Events at Brew Ha Ha Productions explains, “Craft beer and punk rock are cut from the same cloth. Small, independent, and up against some big challenges: taking on BIG BEER, and local bands determined to do it their way, despite what might make them a quick buck. Punk In Drublic throws off the mantle of the ordinary to create an event unlike any other…a perfect pairing of craft beer and punk rock!”

Interview: Nathen Maxwell (The Bunny Gang/Flogging Molly) on “Thrive,” balancing two projects, and “what is punk rock?”

Nathen Maxwell is in a pretty good place.

While no doubt better recognized for the job he’s had for effectively half his life (bass player of Flogging Molly, of course), things are finally ramping back up in the Maxwell-led Bunny Gang camp. The band put out an album in 2009 (White Rabbit, SideOneDummy Records), toured a bit, wrote and recorded a follow-up album entitled Thrive in 2012 and then…well…the waiting game began.

Two years, several band members and a new record label (Hardline Entertainment) later and Thrive is set to finally see the light of day. With obvious Clash-influeced reggae-dub-punk influences, the album centers on a “one love” vibe that was inspired at least in part by the documentary with which it shares a name (more here). And yet, it’s not ALL peace and love, as the album points continuously to the circular nature of war profiteering and the conflicts that, hopefully, won’t be our demise.

We caught up with Nathen a week prior to the September 23rd release of Thrive to talk about the holdups behind the album’s release, the balancing his Flogging Molly and Bunny Gang sides, and answering the all-important question: “what is punk rock?”. We also spent some time discussing the controversial documentary that gave Thrive its name, and whether or not it gets hard to keep up the “one love” mantra in an ongoing war cycle. Check out our chat below.

DS Photo Gallery: Flogging Molly at The Fox Theatre in Oakland 3/14/14

Over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, I was lucky enough to find myself watching some amazing bands perform in the SF Bay Area. Saturday night saw the nine band extravaganza at Thee Parkside (write-up coming soon), but Friday kicked the weekend off right with Flogging Molly‘s annual Green 17 Tour stop at The Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA.

The first band to the stage was Johnny Mad Cap and the Distractions. I was late to the show and I regretfully missed their set, but you can check out some shots from their performance here, from fellow pit photographer Alan Snodgrass.

Next to play was Jerry Hannan and The Mad Hannans. Flogging Molly always has great bands opening for them, getting the crowd and energy ready for the main event. I caught the latter part of the set but it was awesome. Really killer guitars.

La raison de la saison was Flogging Molly. The annual Green 17 Tour is something I look forward to every year, and their set definitely fulfilled my fix. The band never disappoints, with endless energy and quintessential style and sound. It is a beautiful thing to witness. Dennis, Bob, Dave and Bridget, Nathan and Matt, and George to round it out, this band keeps on delivering. No frills, just class. Talent.

Check out all the shots from the bands’ sets  —>> (Jerry Hannan and The Mad Hannans and Flogging Molly).
