An official Queen-branded lager has been announced.
Entitled ‘Queen Bohemian Lager’ after the band’s classic hit ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the beer has been released in conjuction with the 40 year anniversary of their 1975 hit single.
It comes just months after the band released their own brand of vodka – ‘Killer Queen’ after the hit single of the same name. That too was celebrating its 40th anniversary.
The Queen crest that graces the Pilsner lager was designed by late singer Freddie Mercury while he was a student at Ealing Art College in London, where he earned a diploma in art and graphic design.
It has been brewed in the Czech Republic. It was was born out of Plzen in the western half of the country and was previously part of the of Bohemian Kingdom back in the 1840s where it became known as Bohemian Pilsner.
‘Queen Bohemian Lager’ is described by the band’s press release as a “golden hoppy” beer.
Guitarist Brian May recently said that the band would be interested in headlining Glastonbury in the future with former American Idol contestant if Adam Lambert.
Lambert linked up with the group for a series of dates earlier this year, and May has described the singer as the only person they have found capable of filling in for Freddie Mercury.
“Look these things get put on the table, it would be interesting to do Glastonbury if we were an operational unit at the time,” he said. “You see this year Adam’s off doing his solo work at the moment so it wouldn’t have worked. You only look at things that are possible logistically at the time.”
