MEGADETH’s Dave Mustaine talks beer and about tasting his own supply.
In a recent interview with Kilpop.com, Dave talks about the new beer from Unibroue called A Tout Le Monde. The beer is a 4.5% Belgian-style saison that takes its name from a track off of the 1994 album Youthanasia.
Mustaine said, “Well, I’m kind of spoiled now with our beer, because we use the yeast only one time. Most beer makers, they’ll reuse the yeast over and over again. And most batches will be anywhere from the first one to seven batches that they’ll use that same yeast. And for us, it’s very high quality, it’s very crisp. We make sure that the date that when it’s finished distilling to when it’s packaged to when it’s put into the marketplace, there’s a timeline for that. Nothing is rushed. It’s not about getting it out there and making mass production of this liquid. It’s about making sure that… See, it’s like art to Jerry. Jerry Vietz’s the beer meister. So there’s a lot of ties there. And when Jerry had said, ‘I think we should call it À Tout Le Monde,’ I was, like, ‘Great. Whatever you call it, I just like how it tastes.”
The band had brought out their first alcoholic beverage with a wine back in 2014 called Mustaine Vineyards Cabernet by Fallbrook Winery. Their beer A Tout Le Monde is only available in the US & Canada so we’ll just have to take Dave’s word for it.
