Metal giants Opeth launch second landmark beer with Leeds-based brewery

Progressive rock juggernauts Opeth have once again joined up with Leeds's Northern Monk Brew Co to launch their second beer the '˜Communion Pale Ale' on April 22.

Following on from their limited run of 2015’s ‘XXV Anniversary Imperial Stout,’ Opeth have opted to take a different approach with their second beer as their choice in drinks is as varied as the music they create. Available in cans it’s a lighter beer than Opeth’s first offering, but still packs a punch full of flavour.

Opeth has sold more than 1.5 million albums worldwide.
