For the full Storm King experience listen to SK Radio with your next Storm King Stout.
Anyone out there remember when Storm King Stout was just a seasonal beer? Released in October, it was welcomed by all when the ‘crisp’ nights’ of autumn turned downright cold and Storm King cast some inner light to challenge the hastening darkness.
Well, you can now enjoy Storm King at any time of the year, as you can your favorite music. But there does seem to be seasons for certain experiences so we’ve bundled our imperial stout up in some of our favorite magically moody music for you to savor.
So get ready to go dark and deep. Don’t worry, there are points of light in this complex mix that echoes the swelling-turbulence-into-comforting-calm that the Storm King brings. The ethereal beauty of Iceland’s Sigur Ros is juxtaposed next to the thick power of The Catherine Wheel. The dense despair of The Cure finds a soulmate in Billie Holiday while London-based deejay Burial’s haunted soundscapes are sparked by the nearly local (Lancaster, PA) folk-inflected wisdom of The Innocence Mission. With the Cocteau Twins and Galaxie 500 also tapped for your pleasure, you should certainly discover the dark intrigue that lies within Storm King, relaxing to this moody mix.
