For the third year in a row, Breckenridge Brewery has teamed up with Denver Comic Con to craft a super beer for the masses. The three-day comic book and sci-fi convention is slated for June 13th-15th. "Brews Wayne," the official 2014 Denver Comic Con beer, will be unveiled on Friday, May 30th, at The 1up - Colfax.
The limited release Brews Wayne is a hoppy amber ale, a hybrid-style with two distinctly different, yet complimenting flavors. This full body 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.
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. Viola is most known for his novel, “The Bane of Yoto,” but has also worked as an art director for Leviathan Games and been a featured artist on FEARnet.
The Brews Wayne debut party at The 1up – Colfax, 717 E Colfax Ave in Denver, will begin at 8:00 p.m. on May 30th and feature live music from Total Ghost, Sundown Social, and DJ Ginger Perry. 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 their infamous photo booth on hand to capture every moment. In addition, Geek Street Society will be in attendance remote hosting their radio show.
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.
Breckenridge Brewery has been a partner with Denver Comic Con since the event’s inception in 2012. The three-day event, which covers the exciting world of comic books, film, and gaming, will bring 75,000 fans to the Colorado Convention Center this year. The convention is a fundraiser for Comic Book Classroom, a charitable organization that applies pop culture to alternative approaches to literacy, learning, and character development.
