Yes, this is the real life. This isn’t just fantasy. Queen is getting a beer named after their classic 1975 hit “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the release of epic singalong (whether you like it or not!) from Queen’s A Night at the Opera album, the band has decided to release “Queen Bohemian Lager” – a “golden hoppy” beer brewed in the Czech Republic.
Calling the beer a “Bohemian Lager” is more than just a catchy name intended to fit the song. The beer is brewed by the Schwarzenberg brewery in Protivin in the Czech Republic’s region of South Bohemia – an area with a long tradition of beer making. In fact, the brewery dates all the way back to at least 1598 – which is probably the same year millennials think the first Queen record was released. This new ‘70s rock brew is actually based on an existing beer, the Bohemian Czech Pilsner.
