Darker heavy metal music and darker beer go together like, well, metal and beer shows and the Triple Rock. The norsemen at HammerHeart Brewing in Lino Lakes (named after the classic Swedish metallers Bathory!) will taking over the Triple Rock’s taps, including a special fest-only brew—Nordlys: An Aquavit Barrel Aged Juniper Pale Ale—as well as the stage for two days of brutal music from ten bands. And to make it even more fun for music-heads, Bindrune Recordings, Gilead Media, and Init Records will be selling albums, shirts, and other fun stuff from their labels and distros. Friday, Saturday, 6 PM. —Taylor Carik
