The Dropkick Murphys Are Getting the Beer They Deserve


WRITTEN BY: Mike Pomranz

An ongoing trend has seen musical artists of every stripe either being honored with or collaborating on their own beer. From rock artists like NOFX to rap artists like Run The Jewels to the freakin’ Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the extent to which music and beer is willing to merge apparently knows no bounds. However, though any musical act can have a beer, some embrace beer drinking more than others (we got our eye on you Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra!)—and to that end, some bands would seem more befitting of a beer than others… The Dropkick Murphys included.

As a Boston-based, Celtic punk band, The Dropkick Murphys have been involved in plenty of St. Patrick’s Days and been the background music for plenty of beer swilling sessions. However, much like how the band’s music is about more than just being rowdy, their new beer—a collaboration with Vermont’s Magic Hat Brewing Company called Barroom Hero—also has a heart.

Did Taco Bell Tip Off Blink-182 to the Arrival of French Fries?
A tweet responding to the band’s bassists said the chain’s lack of fries “might change soon.”

But while fans might just be happy to have an official Dropkick Murphys beer, they should also know that sales of Barroom Hero will raise money for The Claddagh Fund Charitable Foundation, a charity created by the band’s frontman Ken Casey back in 2007 that supports other underfunded nonprofits. “The Claddagh Fund has become the driving force behind what keeps the band so motivated,” Casey said in a statement. “After a while being a musician, it’s nice to have purpose, and hopefully this carries on long after the band’s done.”

Barroom Hero will be released next month, making it available during both the band’s spring tour and St. Patrick’s Day. It will also be sold in 16-ounce cans and on draft for a limited time through the summer.
