Arizona-based modern classic rock & roll trio THE BLACK MOODS have partnered with downtown Phoenix’s Walter Station Brewery on their collaborative “Hollywood and Lime”, a light blonde ale with hints of cherry and bright lime flavors. Brewed with select malts and hops for a handcrafted flavor profile and just a hint of tartness, “Hollywood and Lime” is perfect for Arizona’s spring season as the temperature start to warm and the days get longer. The beer was named after THE BLACK MOODS’ single “Hollywood”, featured on their 2022 album INTO THE NIGHT. The trio have revealed the official “Hollywood” music video, directed and filmed by videographer and longtime friend Domonick Giorgianni (Domino Effect Productions). It unflinchingly looks at the dark side beneath the glitz and glamour of the star-studded entertainment capital. Watch it on KNAC.COM HERE.

The “Hollywood and Lime” ale will be released March 9 as a limited edition offering in 12oz cans available to be purchased as a six-pack and/or case at Walter Station Brewery as well as at select restaurants, bars and bottle shops in the greater Phoenix area. To celebrate the video’s release and kick off the beginning of their spring co-headlining “March Radness” tour (3/24-4/7), THE BLACK MOODS will perform a special show at Walter Station Brewery’s taproom, located in downtown Phoenix in a refurbished 1960’s-era Phoenix Fire Department Station, on Thursday, March 9. Tickets are on sale now for the limited capacity show for $35 which includes admission, one 12oz can of “Hollywood and Lime”, and an exclusively designed “Hollywood and Lime” beer koozie. The beer will also be offered on draft for this event only and attendees can purchase limited-release six-packs at the end of the night. Reserve your tickets now HERE.

“We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering up with Jim and Walter Station Brewery to release the first-ever BLACK MOODS beer, ‘Hollywood and Lime’,” says THE BLACK MOODS front man Josh Kennedy. “It will turn all your bad feelings into good feelings!"

“Brewing a beer with and for THE BLACK MOODS was an idea I’ve had since the guys played at the brewery while it was still under construction back in 2016,” shares Walter Station Brewery co-owner Jim Erickson. “It was an amazing show and an opportunity to introduce my friends, family and brewing community to the band, which everyone loved and still talk about today. Having seen THE BLACK MOODS a couple of years earlier at a show in Mexico, I quickly became a fan of the music but also the vibe of the band and how they seemed to be really connected to their own community and uber approachable. It was similar to how I saw, or hoped to see, my brewery would interact with the beer community. After a couple of idea pitches back and forth between myself and the band, and lots of sampling, we settled on developing an easy-drinking beer that they could enjoy while hanging out with friends, rehearsing or before a show. ‘Hollywood and Lime’ got its name while all of us were sitting at the brewery one evening and discussing their new album which included the single "Hollywood", and the rest is history. Sid Rhea, a friend of the band and a talented artist, contributed the artwork and graphics for the can labels. An excellent label for an excellent beer for an excellent band.”

THE BLACK MOODS--Josh Kennedy (vocals, guitar), Chico Diaz (drums), Jordan Hoffman (bass)—have performed on stages across North America alongside acts including THE DOORS’ Robby Krieger, SHINEDOWN, JANE'S ADDICTION, WHITESNAKE, COLLECTIVE SOUL, THE DEAD DAISIES and THE GIN BLOSSOMS. The trio released their fourth album INTO THE NIGHT in 2022 via Wit Hustle/The Orchard/Steelhorse Entertainment with Grammy Award-nominated producer Johnny “K” Karkazis (DISTURBED, 3 DOORS DOWN) who they previously enlisted for their critically acclaimed 2020 effort, SUNSHINE. INTO THE NIGHT’s 12 tracks were lauded by Metal Edge Magazine as “raw, riff-heavy, blues-drenched rock delivered with a nod to the classic acts that came before them, but filtered through a youthful, high-energy lens.”
