The iconic British rock band Queen is launching its own beer to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Bohemian Rhapsody” – released in 1975.
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
We assure you, it’s 100% real.
Everybody has heard at least once the famous song “Bohemian Rhapsody”, third bestselling single of all time in the UK and awarded Greatest Song of All Time.
(If not – but I doubt it – you MUST watch the video clip at the end of the article, like come on! Bohemian Rhapsody?!)
Well, 2015 is the 40th anniversary of its release and Queen is celebrating big time with a new brew.
We agree, the choice of Czech Republic to brew this new beer seems a bit random but it actually reflects lager history. Even if Germany would be the first country to spring to mind when thinking about lager, it has also become related with the Kingdom of Bohemia in the 19th century, which is now part of the Czech Republic.
Bohemia – Bohemian…
The “Queen Bohemian Lager” is apparently “golden” and “hoppy” and will be 4.7% ABV. You’ll soon be able to taste it yourself since the beer will be released this summer in the UK and the rest of Europe, and later in the year worldwide.
Funny fact, the bottle’s design features a crest created by Freddie Mercury when he was a student at Ealing Art College in London, where he earned a diploma in art and graphic design. It is also the image from the cover of the album A Night At The Opera, album that first featured the famous song.
Coincidence? I don’t think so.
One thing we can all agree on: “‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ has become more than just a song, it’s a feeling that can’t be denied!”
