The Baltimore Rock Opera Society is making its way into your beer fridge with the release of a new brew dubbed the Chuggernaut, made in partnership with The Brewer’s Art.
A Kölsch-style ale with 4.5 percent ABV, the Chuggernaut will be available in six-packs of cans, and only at Remington Wine Company and The Wine Source in Hampden. BROS spokesman Tyler Merchant said in an email that pricing will be up to the stores, though it’s expected to go for $10 to $12.
In a release, BROS described the brew as “a beer for big ideas, long nights, and friendships forged in pursuit of glory,” and said it reflects the “characteristic over-the-top personality” of their company. BROS members and local artists John DeCampos and Shannon Hadley designed the label, which features hands raised with devil horns, guitars and a sturdy-looking battle axe front and center.
As for the name, there’s a certain sense of honor to it. Merchant said the “Chuggernaut is a title given to BROS who challenge others to a chugging contest and win.”
BROS has worked with The Brewer’s Art before on fundraisers, and the Mount Vernon-based brewery made a special-edition beer, Chronobrew, for the collective’s winter 2016 show, “Chronoshred: The Adventures of Stardust Lazerdong.” Chuggernaut is their first distributed release.
The Chuggernaut will debut April 7 at BROS’ annual fundraising gala, The Swanktacular, to be held at Zion Lutheran Church. It’ll also be on sale at BROS’ upcoming show, “Incredibly Dead!”, which premieres May 12.
