Pantera Golden Ale will be the first beer to bear the Pantera name. “We love creating fine ales and enjoy all kinds of music.

Pantera started their incredible and sometimes over-the-top metal journey just outside of Dallas, delivering their jaw dropping, intense new sound that changed the path of metal. Pantera brought a ‘new level’ of excitement and inspiration to the metal genre. Their party reputation was a side of the band they were proud of. They were known to throw back a few beers. Reflective of the times during the band’s glory days in the 90’s and the lighter broad and approachable beers the band members would typically drink, the recipe for this collab screamed “golden ale”.
