Taking a break from setting fire to the booth, Run the Jewels have unveiled their own signature beer—teaming with Brooklyn’s Interboro Spirits & Ales (a brewery ran by former Def Jux manager Jesse Ferguson).
Described as a smooth, oat-tinged New England IPA that’s gloriously fruity and fairly tropical with Citra and Mosaic hops, pleasingly dry and a poundable 6% ABV, Stay Gold will make its debut tomorrow night (2/25) at RTJ’s first Terminal 5 show in New York, before encoring on March 14th at the October Kickoff Party in Charlotte, NC.
Depending on Stay Gold’s success on tour, Run the Jewels is open to future beers.
“Maybe one day we’ll all get rich off a Run the Jewels beer,” El-P said. “It’s kitschy, but there’s no point in kitsch if it’s not pleasurable to consume.”
