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!”

40 years of punk rock Celebrated at “77 Montreal”

For 40 years Montreal has had one of the most beloved and dedicated punk scenes not only in Canada, but the world (if you don’t believe me look at the history of Rockfest). The Canadian scene often gets passed by and overlooked, sure we have great bands, great venues, but it’s cold up here and understandable that bands may want to avoid Canadian winters.  So it’s fitting that July 28th Montreal is set to host “77 Montreal”. A one day festival with a historic lineup that will feature Rancid, Dropkick Murphy’s, The Vandals, Madball, The Bouncing Souls and many more.

The festival will take place at the historic Parc Jean-Drapeau, a location that was once the site of the Canadian migration to Warped Tour every summer. “77 Montreal” is hoping to recreate some magic, hoping to bring 40 years of punk rockers together to celebrate the scene in Montreal.

As a Canadian and a fan of punk rock I can honestly say we all owe Quebec a thank you, without them we wouldn’t have poutine, Celine and punk rock. Do yourself a favor if you’ve never checked out a show in Montreal, go see “77 Montreal”.

You can find more information for the festival here.
