Veteran atmospheric post-rock trio ESBEN AND THE WITCH has recently launched their own Berliner Berg Belgian IPA – Dull Gret. Brewed by Berliner Berg brewmaster Torsten Vullriede and ESBEN AND THE WITCH drummer Daniel, the Belgian yeast yields a hint of spicy clove while Slovenian hop “Styrian Wolf”—developed by the Slovenian Institute For Hop Research And Brewing—delivers intense blueberry and floral notes and a proper amount of bitterness.
In 1563, Peter Brueghel painted a vision of an unruly woman, leading a female army to pillage hell. She is Dull Gret. This is ESBEN AND THE WITCH’s vision, their call to arms; a tribute to the women out there who dare to go against the grain, despite the battles they encounter on the way.

ESBEN AND THE WITCH released their stunning fifth full-length, Nowhere, late last year via Season of Mist Records. At once dense, shadowy, and inspired, Rachel Davies’ powerful voice is a clarion call leading the way through a storm of forceful movements and riffs. “Nowhere is a verdant garden teeming with beauty and awe,” notes the band of the release, “a place where giant birds eat the dead and the lost seek solace deep in the forests; where women are warriors and freedom and liberation rule supreme; a place where darkness is explored not feared and shadows become reminders of the light. We all belong in Nowhere. Find your peace.”
