May 31st, 2018 Ft. Worth, TX: Next in line in a history that includes beers such as Rubberneck Red, Bockslider, and Hell Below/Stars Above, Martin House Brewing Company announces their fifth collaborative effort with Toadies, Possum Kingdom Pilsner. Possum Kingdom Pilsner is a sessional beer brewed with Czech Saaz hops and pilsner malts. At 4% abv, it is the first low-alcohol beer Martin House have ever produced. The sessionability of this beer is what sets it apart from their other craft beers. Martin House founder, Cody Martin says “We worked to create an easy-drinking pilsner that the guys in the band and the brewers alike would love. Brewing a true pilsner is something we’ve wanted to do for a while but didn’t have enough tanks to properly lager the beer. This beer with the Toadies was great excuse to get those extra tanks and finally take on a crisp, refreshing and dry pilsner.”
Toadies guitarist Clark Vogeler says “When we play shows, I like to have a few pilsners on hand. That way, I can enjoy a beer or two during the course of the show but not get tipsy and bungle the intro to ‘Away.’ In fact, I believe the band drinks more pilsners than any other beer. So I know that our new beer, Possum Kingdom Pilsner, is going to find its way into all our backstage coolers. It’s been a whole lot of fun partnering with Martin House the last few years and I’ve enjoyed each of the beers we’ve created, but Possum Kingdom Pilsner is definitely my favorite. We can’t wait to share it with everybody.”
Martin adds “One of our favorite past times here at the brewery is floating the river. We have the Trinity right in our backyard. The ultimate float would have to be listening to The Toadies as you float down the Guadalupe with a Possum Kingdom Pilsner in hand.”
Toadies will spend the summer playing a handful of regional festivals including Float Fest in San Marcos along side Tame Impala, Modest Mouse and Run the Jewels. This fall the Toadies will also be the first rock band to put out a Live From Billy Bob’s Texas record. Previous Live From Billy Bob’s Texas releases include such Texas legends as Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. In October, Toadies vocalist Vaden Todd Lewis will be playing a handful of shows in the UK as part of the Texas Music Takeover.
