Def Leppard Pale Now Available at Rock & Brews

Rock & Brews Restaurants have teamed up with Def Leppard and Seattle-based Elysian Brewing Company to introduce Def Leppard Pale to their customers and are offering fans a chance to win tickets to see Def Leppard on tour this year.

Known for handcrafted American food, a mix of more than 100 craft and classic styles of beer on tap and in bottles, and their authentic rock-inspired, family-friendly atmosphere, Rock & Brews Restaurants throughout the United States will be the first restaurant brand to offer Def Leppard Pale. In celebration, Rock & Brews Restaurants have a variety of promotions planned, including an opportunity for fans to win tickets to see Def Leppard on tour in many Rock & Brews’ markets, as well as a chance to win a trip for two to see the band in Los Angeles on October 7, 2018.

“Rock & Brews celebrates everything that is rock and roll and is the perfect place for fans to indulge themselves with a cold Def Leppard Pale,” said Joe Elliott, lead singer of Def Leppard.

Def Leppard Pale was brewed by Elysian Brewing Company in partnership with Def Leppard to fuse the infamous malt bodies of British ales with the mysteria of Pacific Northwest hops. The launch of the beer was timed to coincide with the Def Leppard 2018 tour.

Joe Elliott Featured in Los Angeles Times

Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott on music critics, streaming services and why you can’t be a real punk rocker unless you’re from Britain

Over a four-decade career as lead singer for Def Leppard, Joe Elliott has sung about sugar, passion killers, hypnosis, “magical mysteria,” pyromania, being brought to his knees by love and riding on a nightmare machine.

But until recently, Elliott and band, which formed in Sheffield, England, in the late ’70s, didn’t think much of music streaming.

Long after holdouts Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Metallica and AC/DC remastered and unlocked their music, Def Leppard steadfastly refused to cave until it was able to negotiate what the band considered equitable compensation from Universal Music.

The two sealed a deal late last year, and soon after, the band’s music shot to the top of the rock charts as though this were 1983. Since then, sticky-sweet rock songs such as “Rock of Ages,” “Photograph” and “Pour Some Sugar on Me” — which remain staples on heartland FM rock stations — have earned millions of streams.

40 years today…

“WOW It’s 40 years today since we played our first ever gig at Westfield school in Sheffield! Holy crap !! Our 50 minute set was all originals until we encored with Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak” !!!!

We were paid approx. £5  from a teacher and we also smuggled beer in via the bass drum case to calm our nerves..

Steve’s amp was also on “standby” when we first went on so when he threw the big opening Pete Townsend windmill at the top off the set, nothing came out !!! …. whoops !!! …” – Joe
