Food and Drink

Southern California punk legends Pennywise have partnered with award winning, Eureka, California-based Lost Coast Brewery to produce “Pennywiser” beer. The easy drinking Session IPA will be available as a limited release in select Southern California stores, bars and restaurants in early September, with expanded distribution in the coming months. Pennywiser marks the first band collaboration for Lost Coast Brewery.

Known for their irreverence, independence, and doing things their own way, Pennywise remained true to their roots and their fans when developing Pennywiser, focusing on creating a unique brew that’s easy to drink and appeals to a wide range of beer drinkers. Pennywiser is taken to the next level by dry hopping it with Cascade, Crystal, Chinook and Citra hops, providing a citrus aroma and refreshing, hoppy flavor. The mild alcohol content (4.8%) of this Session IPA makes it the perfect beer to enjoy all day with friends.

The Pennywiser label features slogans familiar to Pennywise fans: “Not Cut From The Same Mold” (a lyric from the band’s defiant “Same Old Story”), “The Bro Hymn Of Beers” (a nod to the band’s trademark show-closing anthem that involves inviting much of the audience on stage with them), and “This One’s For You” (part of a “Bro Hymn” lyric).

Pennywise vocalist Jim Lindberg explains, “People have been coming at us for years to make a Pennywiser beer, but Lost Coast finally created a brew for us that got it right.”

"After 10 years of us talking about doing a beer, it's finally happening thanks to our good friends at Lost Coast Brewery,” says Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge. “We've been trying to get this idea off the ground for awhile now, and to find a like-minded company with a DIY attitude of doing things their own way and not conforming to the usual corporate ways of the beer making world. This is about making a good tasting beer, with good people that have the same mentality as us, and bringing it to our fans…or anyone that likes beer for that matter. It's no secret that we drink beer, and that our fans like to knock back a couple cold ones as well. We hope we can deliver something that will bring some good times for all in the future.”

Pennywise drummer Byron McMackin says, "We couldn't be more excited to announce our partnership with Lost Coast Brewery and the launch of Pennywiser beer. We think Lost Cost is the perfect fit for our band and we can't wait for all of our Pennywise fans to taste it.”

Pennywise bassist Randy Bradbury sums things up: "Pennywiser is a great tasting, easy drinking beer…so go get some Pennywiser and enjoy with your friends!”

Lost Coast Brewery owner Barbara Groom says, "This is exciting for Lost Coast Brewery--our first major collaboration. We are looking forward to this new release and hope that Pennywise fans and all beer drinkers alike will enjoy.”

To celebrate the release of Pennywiser, the band will be hosting a special private tasting event in their Hermosa Beach, CA hometown on Friday, August 25. For a chance to win tickets to this intimate event, those 21+ can visit www.Pennywisdom.com.

Fans will have a chance to sample Pennywiser and see Pennywise live when they headline 91X Presents Ye Scallywag!, a day-long craft beer, food and music festival at Waterfront Park in San Diego, CA on Saturday, October 21. Tickets for Ye Scallywag! are on sale now at www.ScallywagSD.com.

Pennywise--vocalist Jim Lindberg, guitarist Fletcher Dragge, drummer Byron McMackin and bassist Randy Bradbury--formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles, a neighborhood with a rich punk rock history, in 1988, and have made a name for themselves as a politically minded melodic hardcore act who have sold millions of albums and become one of the most successful independent acts. The band has released eleven albums and amassed an international following through relentless touring and a high energy sound merging melodic surf punk, blistering hardcore and the classic punk of their youth. The group has solidified their place in punk history with songs like “Same Old Story,” “F* Authority,” "Alien," “Perfect People,” “My Own Country,” “Society,” “Straight Ahead,” and their legendary ode to brotherhood and departed friends “Bro Hymn.”

Lost Coast Brewery is an award-winning brewery located in Eureka, California founded by Barbara Groom in 1989. Known as “not just another craft brewery,” Lost Coast bottles up to 135,000 beers and fills 1,000 kegs every day, and has distributors in 21 U.S. states as well as Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Italy, Japan and Panama.

Anheuser-Busch Debuts A ‘Bud Lightning’ Beer To Celebrate Tampa Bay’s Stanley Cup Win

  The Tampa Bay Lightning are your 2020-2021 Stanley Cup Champions. They are the first team in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup after getting swept in the playoffs the year before. If you think back to last season, my TB Lightning tied the record for the best regular-season in NHL history only to get blindsided by the Columbus Blue Jackets and bounced from the Playoffs in 4 straight games.  The Lightning were quite literally one of the best teams in NHL (regular season) history. They hadn’t lost back-to-back games that ENTIRE SEASON. Then they got swept by a team that wasn’t even expected to win a single game in that series. WITIN RADIO · Interview: Grant Fuhr This year was different for so many reasons. The Lightning started the season pretty shaky and seemed mentally defeated after last season’s sweep but they got it together after the 2-game international road trip to Sweden where they went 2-0 against Buffalo and it was almost like the Lightning came back recharged and learned

"Death is just a different kind of journey…to the land that I am king of," the quote reads. WITIN RADIO · Interview: Heather Antos: Assistant Editor: Marvel Entertainment "In the Black Panther mythos, T'Challa often retreats to his City of the Dead, where all the previous kings and queens of Wakanda have been buried. There, T'Challa finds wisdom and counsel from his ancestors who have gone before," Coates continued, before explaining how he and Boseman's paths crossed when they were students at Howard University in Washington, DC.                                   "I got to watch him through the years — advancing out of student theater, on to TV and film, and then finally cast as T'Challa. He was perfect. He had T'Challa's royal spirit, the sense that he
