Texans didn't need a thermostat to know it was ostensibly hot Sunday, but the summer heat wasn't enough to deter hundreds of beer drinkers that flocked to Martin House Brewing Co. in Fort Worth to celebrate the launch of two craft brews to the tune of alt-rock band The Toadies.

The event has become tradition — each year the Toadies collaborate on an original beer with the brewers at Martin House and commemorate its release with a concert. For 2016, the band decided to mark the 15th anniversary of its sophomore album Hell Below, Stars Above with two brews intended to be combined and drunk together. (See full descriptions below.)

The consensus on the mixed beer, deemed Purgatory, ranged from alright to pretty damn delicious, but many people I spoke with at the party hadn't tried it. To be honest, it might have been a few degrees too stifling to go for a roughly 9 percent ABV recipe like Hell Below. Nonetheless, plenty of good times were had.

See pictures from the event below:

Hell Below

This strong black ale is a full bodied and mildly roasty beer clocking 8.7 percent alcohol content.

Stars Above

This raspberry sour ale is fruity on the nose, sweet up front and tart in the finish. Some thought it had cider-like quality, while others thought it would be more puckering. Stars Above was a clear favorite on this hot summer day, lauded as "refreshing" by everyone who tried it.

Purgatory

This mixed beer earns points for creativity. It boasts the full bodied nature of Hell Below and the strong fruity flavor form Stars Above. This beer, however, will not be sold on its own. Both Hell Below and Stars Above will be sold individually in six-packs of 12-ounce cans. It's up to the beer chefs to concoct Purgatory.

SUCH FUN, WOW!
