The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q is set for this weekend and GWAR themselves have promised to deliver four new amazing products for humanity to choke on.
First, the highly anticipated “Let There Be GWAR” book will be available for the first time to the masses of Bohabs that know how to read. (Don’t worry there are plenty of pictures, so even the Bohabs that can’t read can still enjoy it too.) “Let There Be GWAR” is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of GWAR. This 360 page oversized hardcover book is chock full of fascinating first-hand accounts and rare, never-before-seen photographs. The book follows the band from the mid-1980s, known in GWAR lore as the “Dim Time,” when the group came together at a derelict dairy building in Richmond, Virginia, through the 1990s and 2000s, when the band spread across the face of the planet like a plague. It’s a must have for all Bohabs, even the illiterate ones.
What is a GWAR B-Q without alcohol? It would still be a festival but not as fun! This year the Scumdogs debut the exclusive Oderus Ale. It’s GWAR’s legendary beer and it’s back by popular demand. These brews always sell out at the GWAR B-Q! For the third year running, Cigar City Brewery of Tampa FL. has crafted a very special tribute brew, Oderus Ale, to the legendary Scumdog! This beer is bold, strong, and drunk just like the ultimate Scumdog warrior it’s named after. Hail ODERUS!!!
And this one is just for you, Bohabs, fires of hell for you to put in your mouth, ’cause life’s too short for bland food! GWAR is also pleased to debut their Bohabanero Sauce. This sauce is not for wimps but it doesn’t sacrifice flavor for heat’s sake. Affectionately named after GWAR’s faithful followers, the Bohabs, this hot sauce brings the smack of habanero peppers and the subtle sweetness of carrots in a unique combination! If you crave equal parts pleasure and pain, Bohabanero Sauce is what you’ve been seeking and you can try it for the first time at the GWAR B-Q!
The one and only CiGWARs are returning to this year’s GWAR B-Q. CiGWAR No.2 is a full bodied smoke with a spicy yet smooth finish. These puros are handcrafted by Pete Johnson of Tatuaje at My Father’s Cigar factory in Nicaragua, available at the GWAR B-Q, and sold exclusively by Havana Connections with five locations in the Richmond and Williamsburg areas. Come smoke a CiGWAR in the great outdoors at Hadad’s Lake during the 6th annual GWAR B-Q.
In addition to GWAR’s Oderus Ale,CiGWARs and BohabaneroSauce, and the new book, there will be a sea of vendors that will be slinging grub and peddling their wares for you human scum to buy.

Capping off this three day festival of music, debauchery and mayhem is the inaugural Brutal Brunch. What is the Brutal Brunch? It’s now the official closing party of the GWAR B-Q and it is FREE and open to the public. The event takes place from 2:00 – 6:00 PM at Abner Clay Park, across the street from the GWARbar located at 217 W Clay St, in the historic Jackson Ward District! The Brutal Brunch will feature live music from The Sawyer Family, Sarah White, and Richmond’s own Mag Bats. This family friendly event (yes, GWAR can be nice and appeal to families sometimes) will showcase more local food and art vendors as GWAR has an ever growing soft spot for Richmond artists! Bring a blanket or grab a chair there. Whatever you do, enjoy the day! The band will be mingling at this party with you human scum, giving you one more opportunity to worship your Lords and Masters and giving GWAR themselves the opportunity to say THANK YOU to GWAR B-Q weekend patrons, sponsors, and meaningless passers-by alike! We encourage you to end your weekend of mayhem and hangovers by hanging with us in the park, visiting GWARbar, and indulging in food and some Hair of the Dog once more before high tailing it out of beautiful Richmond… until next year!
