Michigan’s Arcadia Brewery Co. to Distribute Mötorhead's Röad Crew Beer in Northeast Ohio


This Saturday, Arcadia Brewing Co. will launch Röad Crew beer at Arcadia’s riverfront brewery in Kalamazoo. A “crushable hop-forward India Pale Ale with a floral and citrussy hop character with just the right amount of malt sweetness,” Röad Crew stems from a collaboration with members of the metal band Mötorhead.

"A Röad Crew beer is perfect for all rock, beer and hop heads and goes down especially well whilst listening to Mötorhead at a wonderfully obscene, lawn-killing volume,” reads the press release announcing the beer’s release.

The launch party, which takes place at 3 p.m., will include live music from the rock band Bonehawk, the Motoread tribute act Band Kilmister and the Detroit metal act Anguish. In between bands, the Bangarang Circus group will perform a variety of aerial and fire-breathing acts.

“I’m very happy to say that Röad Crew beer is now out in the U.S.,” says Mötorhead drummer Mikkey Dee. “It’s been way too long, but now it has arrived. I encourage our North American friends to get out there and enjoy it right now!”

Röad Crew will be available initially in the Great Lakes region of the U.S. and should be in Northeast Ohio stores next week.
