“We wanna say a huge thanks to our bros over at Phillips Brewery on Vancouver Island for making a dream come true. We think this is pretty fucking rad, and apparently so does the Georgia Straight, check it out….”

Since it’s still not strictly legal to hand out chunks of Red Lebanese to the public, organizers came up with the next best thing to promote local metal maniacs Bison b.c.’s appearance at this week’s Transmission Conference. For one night only, Bison Beer will be served when the band joins the bill at the former Storyeum building (151 Cordova Street) on Friday (December 5).
According to Matt Phillips, CEO of Victoria’s Phillips Brewing Company, it was producer Tyl van Toorn’s idea. “I don’t know how serious it was,” Phillips told the Straight, “but I guess there were some negotiations going on to get them to play, and Tyl said, ‘We’ll get a beer done for you.’ ” The price was right for the band, and Phillips Brewing got the job of relabelling its popular Phoenix Gold lager with amended cover artwork from Bison b.c.’s Quiet Earth album. Not that any such precautions are needed, but the label also reads “Please Don’t Throw Me At the Stage.”
Phillips said that the company is producing “about 30 dozen cases” of Bison Beer, but wouldn’t say how many were going straight to singer-guitarist James Farwell and his cohorts. “There’s some stuff that I just don’t know if I can disclose,” he said.
