HELLBOY BEER IS A THING THAT EXISTS NOW
If you thought Hellboy's 20th anniversary was a party, just wait until he turns 21. Dark Horse Comics and Rogue Ales have teamed up to celebrate Big Red reaching the legal drinking age by releasing a special limited edition beer called the Right Hand of Doom beginning February 22nd, 2015.
"When Dark Horse Comics published the first Hellboy story 21 years ago, I never thought there'd be a Hellboy beer," said creator Mike Mignola. "But I really can't imagine a better time for Rogue to introduce the Right Hand of Doom beer. If Hellboy was real I guess he'd finally be able to buy me a beer."
"Hellboy has appeared in graphic novels and comic books, prose novels, two animated features, two live action films, toy lines and all manner of merchandise," said Mike Richardson, President of Dark Horse. "Rogue Ales approached us with the idea of creating a heavy-handed, supernatural red ale and we loved the idea of two independent, Portland based companies coming together to create something new that would be both fun for fans and worthy of the Mike Mignola's creative legacy."
"This beer is dedicated to the B.P.R.D," said Brett Joyce, President of Rogue Ales. "Right Hand of Doom is brewed with all the same passion and intensity that Mike Mignola and Dark Horse have brought to Hellboy for the past 21 years."
The Right Hand of Doom labeled features a Hellboy drawing from Mignola. The beer was available for the first time publicly at an event at Things From Another World Comics store in Portland yesterday at a signing with Mignola and fellow comic book creators Matt Kindt, Eric Powell, and Brian Wood. The beer will be available nationally via the Rogue Ales site tomorrow. It is currently available for pre-order.
