Finnish Folk Metal Superstars KORPIKLAANI are currently touring Europe alongside TURISAS and TROLLFEST in support of their latest studio album’Kulkija’. To celebrate, the band released a special tour edition, which includes the ‘Beer Beer’ CD, featuring 14 different versions of the eponymous track. Taken from this CD is also ‘Bier Bier’, sung by TANKARD‘s Gerre, who even wrote the lyrics for the adaption. Watch the lyric video for the German ‘Beer Beer’ version here:

Gerre stated, “I remember when we toured with KORPIKLAANI across Finland in 2009, where we had tons of fun! I also had a lot of fun while writing German lyrics for the band’s iconic song and recording it with our sound engineer Gerd Lücking (drummer of HOLY MOSES). I hope that I’ll meet the guys in KORPIKLAANI again soon, and we can have a few beers once again.”
