Hellboy is everyone’s favorite beer-swilling, demon-hunting, raised from hell superhero badboy. And this year he turns 25 which means there are all kinds of celebratory things happening, including the very on-brand line of beers from Gigantic Brewing Company. The six flavors are each inspired by different HB-universe characters and each one comes with a unique Mike Mignola-designed label and they all sound pretty delicious to us.
Here’s the full list of flavors and inspirations:
- Hellboy – Maple Syrup Pancake Beer
- Liz Sherman – Mole Chili Stout
- Johann Kraus – Citrus Wit Beer
- Abe Sapien – Indigo Blue Fruit Ale
- Blood Queen – Cranberry Yuzu Sour
- Trevor Bruttenholm – British Barleywine
If this sounds up your alley and you’ll be at Emerald City Comic Con then you’re in luck as that’s where the beers will be debuting at a yet to be announced top secret event. They’ll be available on a wider basis on March 15 in the lead up to Hellboy day on March 23 2019.
According to the press release the company will be releasing a very specific number of the each beer to fit with the comics character’s theme. “To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the publication of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, Oregon’s Gigantic Brewing and Dark Horse Comics are teaming up to create 666 cases of Hellboy beer, based on award-winning cartoonist Mike Mignola’s legendary character. All told, Gigantic Brewing will release six different Hellboy beers, with flavors inspired by fan-favorite characters from the Hellboy comic books. Each new beer will be a limited edition run of 666 cases and will be released approximately every seven weeks.”
These delectable beverages obviously come just in time for the David Harbour-starring film which will be hitting screens on April 12. We’re excited to collect them all and cook up some pam-cakes of our own.
