The Cliff Burton Estate has teamed up with music merchandising company KnuckleBonz and craft brewery Calicraft Brewing Co. to create a new beer inspired by the late Metallica bassist.

Dubbed Cliff ‘Em All, the 6.4% ABV IPA was brewed with simcoe and citra hops and is described as “hoppy, bold and crushable.” 

A portion of the proceeds from the beer will be donated to the Cliff Burton Music Scholarship Foundation for Rising Youth Musicians. 

“Continuing the mission of Cliff’s father, the late Ray Burton, the Cliff Burton Foundation is centered on fostering the next generation of musical talent,” the Burton family says in a statement. “We hand pick young individuals from around the world with the same enthusiasm for music and dedication to their craft as the late bassist Cliff Burton had. Cheers to Cliff and Ray Burton who loved a good beer!”
