Malt, Hops Rules!

The East Coast vs. West Coast Punk Rock Brew Tour kicks off its fourth year on August 12 at Idle Hands in New York City.

The antidote for a near endless run of template tap takeovers, EC/WC is brought to you by four of America's leading breweries: Smuttynose, Lagunitas, Sixpoint and Sierra Nevada.

How is EC/WC different? 1) Each brewery will be bringing an IPA and a lighter offering (think pilsner, kolsch, summer beer). Any other beers (and there WILL be other beers) will be aged, rare or in some cases, brewery-only. The lists will vary for each event. 2) Tour stops will feature either live punk, metal or stoner rock bands or DJ sets spinning heavy tunes from both coasts. 3) Sunday events are afternoon matinees. 4) There are 18 events in 3 weeks.

All dates will feature additional guest breweries, like Dark Horse, Bronx Brewing, Great Lakes and Troegs. Sunday shows will be brunch matinees and seven or eight events will feature live bands. 

Unlike Warped Tour, we'll have much better beer, no underage kids and certainly no signs telling you not mosh or crowd surf. This is the summertime heavy music experience you really want!
