It’s a bummer that El Paso doesn’t sell Deftones signature craft beers. I know we have plenty of bars that carry all sorts of craft beer. But when your favorite band has signature drinks created it is a whole different story. Since Deftones teamed up with Belching Beaver Brewery I have been wanting to try just one. Then finally the day of Dia De Los Deftones Festival in San Diego I had my wish come true. My taste buds had the wakeful and civil taste of Deftones signature craft beer. Unfortunately, their other beers sold so fast I only got to try one. One is better than none though. Deftones signature craft beer I tried was their Phantom Bride India Pale Ale. I normally turn down IPA’s but couldn’t this time around because anything for Deftones especially since it was their only signature beer left.

Come to my surprise I really enjoyed sipping on my ice-cold Phantom Bride IPA. I am pretty sure I wasn’t only enjoying my drink because of the atmosphere I was in. The way the citrusy not too hoppy taste hits your taste buds and goes down so smooth was enough to enjoy another. I got to enjoy watching Deftones perform while sipping on their signature craft beer at Petco Park in San Diego. I could honestly say that night was by far the second-best Deftones experience I could ever have. Clearly the best to top that night would be the day I actually get to meet Deftones. But until then it would be nice if a liquor store chain in El Paso could sell Deftones signature craft beer. Because it can get pricey when you have to order out of town.
