VH1 – CLASSIC ROCK RADIO
To mark the 40th anniversary of their hit song, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Queen are putting out their own brand of beer. It’s called Queen Bohemian Lager and is a golden hoppy beer that’s brewed in the Czech Republic, which is of course also known as Bohemia. The bottles feature an image from the cover art of A Night at the Opera, the album that includes the classic song. The beer hits shelves in Europe this summer, priced at $31 for a 12-pack of bottles. A worldwide rollout will soon follow.
