Hellboy has a lot to celebrate in 2019 – it is the 25th anniversary of the first appearance of the character, and of course, the new movie is arriving soon. Dark Horse is celebrating by teaming with Gigantic Brewing to release 666 cases of Hellboy beer to screaming fans (of legal drinking age).
Gigantic Brewing will release six different Hellboy beers, each a different flavor inspired by characters from the comic books. Each new batch will be released every seven weeks – and here is where it gets a little weird from the numbers stand-point – each version of the beer will have 666 cases to ship, for a grand total of 4662 cases between now and the end of the year.
The Hellboy beer, which has been described as having a maple syrup and pancake profile, will release on March 23, 2019.
The limited edition beers will be released in the following order and feature different flavor profiles:
● Hellboy – Maple Syrup Pancake Beer (6.66% abv)
● Liz Sherman – Mole Chili Stout (6.66% abv)
● Johann Kraus – Citrus Wit Beer (6.66% abv)
● Abe Sapien – Indigo Blue Fruit Ale (6.66% abv)
● Blood Queen – Cranberry Yuzu Sour (6.66% abv)
● Trevor Bruttenholm – British Barleywine (9.99% abv)
Where will you be able to buy these beers? That’s a good question as currently, the locations are listed as “in select locations across the US,” which I think means you need to check with your local liquor/beer stores to see if they even carry Gigantic Brewing products.
Still, the art for these bottles looks pretty amazing, and I know there are plans for these to appear later as prints and t-shirts.
