Created from the mind and liver of NOFX’s frontman Fat Mike, the Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival included 3 hours of craft beer tastings with over 100 craft beers, including some of the West Coast’s best, plus performances from some of the best punk rock bands. Fat Mike joined forces with premier music event producer/promoter Synergy Global Entertainment and respected craft beer event production powerhouse Brew Ha Ha Productions to produce this new festival.
Cameron Collins, Co-Founder & Director of Events at Brew Ha Ha Productions said, “When Fat Mike, [John] Reese and I decided to do this tour, we knew we were on to something special and we knew it was going to be the first of its kind. Last weekend was one of the coolest events to ever take place in Southern California. We had over 200 craft beers and half a dozen legendary bands like NOFX, Bad Religion and The Dickies perform live all just a few feet away from the Pacific Ocean…It literally doesn’t get better than that!”
Named for NOFX’s classic Punk In Drublic album, which has sold over one million copies, Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival also included stops in Tacoma, WA, Boise, ID, Sacramento, CA, Phoenix, AZ, and Concord, CA. NOFX co-headlined each date of Punk In Drublic, with music lineups varying slightly by market.
“This went so well, we want to take it around the world! Details to come! Fat Mike’s liver lives on.” – Producer John Reese of Synergy Global Entertainment
To celebrate the Punk In Drublic Festival, Fat Mike teamed up with craft beer pioneers Stone Brewing to brew their very own Stone & NOFX Punk in Drublic Hoppy Lager, which was available in cans in the festival markets. This collaboration was a huge show of support by Stone, marking the first time ever that Stone worked with a musician for a can release.:
“The environment was laid back, people were having a great time, and the music was energetic and lively from start to finish. As a skate kid growing up in Pennsylvania, seeing bands like Less Than Jake, Goldfinger, Flogging Molly, and NOFX when they were in town, or when they played a Warped Tour stop within driving distance, was my first real exposure to the counterculture scene. Having them all on one bill in 2017, along with the discovery opportunities to see Get Dead and Bad Cop, Bad Cop, was something I wouldn’t have missed for anything.”
