GWAR and Tampa brewer introduce Impaled Ale

   So, a few weeks back Cigar City Brewing in Tampa rolled out its first band-themed craft beer. It was called High Road Ale and it was inspired by the music of Bradenton's Have Gun Will Travel.
   Now Cigar City will be expanding from Americana into metal with Impaled Ale, a new brew that will debut at the annual GWAR-B-Q music festival in Richmond, Va. on Aug. 17.
   GWAR, as you may know, is a satirical metal band. They're known for elaborate costumes and extreme stage shows.
   According to, Impaled Ale is the second GWAR-themed beer. Three years ago, a couple of home brewers in the Tampa Bay area created Death Piggy Ale as an homage to the band.
   Almost all the Impaled Ale will be canned and kegged to be sold at GWAR-B-Q, so if you really want to try it you may have to travel to Richmond.
