For the third year in a row Breckinridge Brewery has teamed up with Denver Comic Con to craft a super beer for the masses. “Brews Wayne,” the official 2014 Denver Comic Con beer, will be unveiled on Friday, May 30, at The 1up – Colfax.
The limited release Brews Wayne is a full bodied hoppy amber ale, a hybrid-style with two distinctly different, yet complimenting flavors. This amber ale has an herbal and floral punch of aroma with woody undertones. With a hearty malt base and lively hop character, Brews Wayne is the perfect beer for the playboy by day and superhero by night. Or at least that’s the description of the beer I saw online.
The beer’s name, “Brews Wayne,” was selected from more than 1000 names submitted and voted on by fans. Colorado-based author, artist, and video game developer, Josh Viola, accompanied by comic book artist and illustrator, Aaron Lovett, created the commemorative pint glass and tap handle art for Brews Wayne.
The Brews Wayne debut party at The 1up – Colfax, 717 E Colfax Ave in Denver, will begin at 8:00 p.m. on May 30 and feature live music from a number of bands. The first 200 fans to arrive will receive one of the limited edition pint glasses. Artists, Josh Viola and Aaron Lovett, will be at the party to unveil the commemorative art. Breckenridge Brewery will provide samples of Brews Wayne to attendees and have a photo booth on hand to capture every moment.
Following its launch at The 1up – Colfax, the beer will be served at the Denver Comic Con, in addition to several taprooms throughout the Denver area while supplies last. For a complete list of locations, visit BreckBrew.com/DenverComicCon.
