It’s been a year since Fort-Worth-based platinum recording artist Toadies first teamed up with Texas brewers Martin House Brewing Company (MHBC) for the release of Rubberneck Red. Now they’re back for their second collaborative limited edition beer, Bockslider. Debuting this spring, Bockslider is an easy-drinking, copper-colored, lightly-hopped beer perfect for on-stage, backstage, or anywhere rock music takes you.
The idea for a Toadies beer began in the summer of 2013. As the band discussed their vision, MHBC quickly came to mind as the ideal local brewery to partner with. Toadies soon had the chance to meet the Martin House brewers, and it was instantly a match made in heaven. Vaden Todd Lewis, Toadies frontman, says that pairing up with Martin House was like “hanging out with old buds – who happened to run a brewery.” Drummer Mark “Rez” Reznicek adds: “Having a beer named after/inspired by the Toadies is amazing.”
Toadies had such an awesome time creating Rubberneck Red that they wanted to make another unique brew with Martin House once again. “We had such an amazing experience working with The Toadies last year on Rubberneck Red. The partnership soon turned into a friendship and we are honored to do it again this year. We found inspiration for Bockslider when we saw Vaden drinking another Texas-made bock beer after last-years batches of Rubberneck Red were all sold-out. It turns out Vaden and the band love an easy drinking Bock and we designed Bockslider to replace that big-brand bock with something local and better.”
Toadies and Martin House will host a Bockslider Beer Launch on Sunday April 26th at Martin House Brewery in Fort Worth. Toadies are taking the party outside, with the band playing their full-on rock set. This will also be the first chance to taste the Toadies second beer release, Bockslider. Bockslider will be on draft at the event and everywhere by May; Cans available everywhere by June.
