Motorhead have launched their own lager, which is rather snappily named 'Bastards Lager'.

The beer is being brewed by Swedish brewery Krönleins and can be ordered by the whole case from Systembolaget, the Swedish state liquor shop. You can find more details about the lager at Brandsforfans.se/Motorheaddrinks.

The band's drummer Mikkey Dee spoke highly of the trio's latest merch-stall offering: "You're never too old for rock 'n' roll and good chilled beer. That always works well together!"

'Bastards Lager' is the band's second alcohol-based launch of the last year, after they announced in 2011 that they would be selling their own brand of red wine, named 'Motorhead Shiraz'.

Motorhead aren't the only band to launch their own brand of red wine, with Slayer and AC/DC both bringing out their own ranges in recent months. Slayer's is fittingly called 'Reign In Blood' and is a Cabernet Sauvignon from California, while AC/DC have four.

Those vintages are also fittingly named as 'Highway To Hell' which is a Cabernet Sauvignon, 'Hells Bells', which is a Sauvignon Blanc, 'Back In Black', which is a Shiraz and finally there is 'You Shook Me All Night Long', which is a Moscato.

Motorhead and metal veterans Anthrax will play a joint UK tour later this year.

The metal veterans will play 10 UK shows together in November, starting at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on November 5 and running until November 18 when the bands play Bristol's Colston Hall.

Motorhead released their latest studio album 'The World Is Yours' in December 2010 and are currently working on its follow-up. Their next studio LP will be the 21st offering of the band's career.
