MADISON, Wis. — Madison-based rock band Droids Attack has partnered with regional craft brewery Ale Asylum to bring you Mashenomak, a crisp refreshing Rye Lager with a peppery kick, brewed with a late hop addition to achieve a soft citrus aroma finish.
Mashenomak is the first song in a two part epic on Droids Attack’s 2016 release, SCI-FI OR DIE. Based on a Native American folk tale, Mashenomak is a fish monster that terrorizes the local tribes, and swallows the souls of all living creatures. Manabush is a brave warrior who allows Mashenomak to swallow him in order to slice open his belly and rescue all of the animal spirits. This tale is beautifully captured in the beer label illustration by artist, Eli Quinn.
To celebrate, Droids Attack and Ale Asylum are taking the party on the road. Special guests will perform with Droids Attack, and Mashenomak: Rye Lager will be available on tap at these venues in the following cities:
