Review: KISS ‘Destroyer’ Beer


March 14, 2013 by 250 Beers


Celebrating 40 years in the music business, US glam-rockers, KISS, literally brought the house down during a gig last night (Wednesday 13th March) at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre or ‘EntCent’ for those of you that love an abbreviation (in which case – Abbr.).

A lighting rig collapsed and struck two poor souls on the head whilst fireworks were being let off as part of the show.

You can read the full story by clicking here.

Coinciding with the bands’ 40 year existence is the worldwide ‘limited’ release of KISS Beer – Destroyer.

Australia has been ‘blessed’ with both the 500ml can and the 330ml bottle varieties.

We already know that this beer is a gimmick though, right? Yes! However, being an inquisitive fellow, I had to try it – just once – and so I slipped a single bottle out of the packaged 6pack at a local Dan Murphy’s store. The staff there just love it when I do that!

Sadly, the only destroying happening here is the potential destruction of people’s faith in beer. Absolutely no thought has gone into producing it and it’s simply as predicted – a very shitty beer lurking beneath a ploy to churn a few extra dollars into the band whose fortunes have been drastically waning in recent years.

I can honestly say that there is nothing positive to say about it. It’s very watery with no appealing tastes. I gained more pleasure from washing the glass up afterwards than I did drinking it.0.5Star

KISS might be famous for their elaborate black and white face’s but I was left red-faced that I’d even bothered to try this one.

Would I drink it again? You can KISS my ar*e!

  1. I never got the love for kiss… I was more of a Twister Sister fan so I think I’ll pass on this too. If there is ever a Dee Snider beer, I’ll be all over it.

  2. Ahhh, you’ve joined those who have felt compelled to post a blog on the awful KISS beer. Funny thing is, even though we already know it’s going to be crap, we can’t help but buy a bottle. Or in my case, a six-pack. What a frigging idiot I am.

      Definitely compelled to spread the word. We’re doing this country a favour if we can sway people away from it. I couldn’t stop myself buying one. For some reason, I needed to know just how shit it actually is.

    Ha! The bright shiny package got you. I made the same mistake some years ago whilst residing in the USA. Never again to touch my lips. I love the fact that Uncle Dans staff get annoyed at you for removing a single from a sixer! Oh Boo HOO! Get over it, At the DM’s nearest to me when I lived in Sydney, they all ducked for cover on the odd occasion I darkened their door. Inevitably I would launch into an enraged diatribe on their laziness when it comes to rotating stock(which they never did) and the insanity of leaving a pallet of Craft Beer in the blazing summer sun for a day.(which they did frequently!) Good show 250Beers, keep the DM staff on their toes….

  4. […] realise just how mega-wanky it was going to be. I did a review as a public service. Read more here if you […]
