Queen to release beer to celebrate 40th anniversary of Bohemian Rhapsody

“Is this just real life? Is this just fantasy?”

Queen are releasing their own beer to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their biggest hit single 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

The British rock legends have teamed up with RnR Brew Ltd - who previously created the popular Killer Queen Vodka for the band - to produce a signature pilsner entitled Queen Bohemian Lager in honour of the song that was written by the late Freddie Mercury for the album 'A Night at the Opera' in 1975.

The Queen crest will feature on the label of the lager and was originally designed by Freddie while he was a student at Ealing Art College in London, where he earned a diploma in art and graphic design.

Queen Bohemian Lager is brewed and bottled in the Kingdom of Bohemia - a German-speaking province in the old Austrian Empire - where Pilsner beer was also first created in 1551.

The recipe is based on existing drink Bohemian Czech Pilsner.

The song 'Bohemian Rhapsody' - which featured in Mike Myers' cult comedy film 'Wayne's World' - stayed at the top of the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks on its first release in 1975 and again in 1991 for five weeks, after Mercury's death at the age of 45.
