Sound Brewery announces that it is launching an official Mortal Kombat beer, which will feature three different beer styles during a limited production run.
The Sound Brewery in Pousblo, Washington is creating three different officially licensed Mortal Kombat X beers, with each brew arriving in 22 ounce bottles for a limited production run. Each of the three beers focuses on a different Mortal Kombat X character, and are flavored to match their personalities. These brews include an IPA, a saison, and a stout, so fans of both light and dark beer should be appeased by the offering.
Here are the beers as described in the official press release:
- Sub-Zero Imperial IPA: Refreshingly cooling on a warm day, an Imperial India Pale Ale that’s not all about the hops or the malt but is a whole lot of both fighting it out for your palate’s supremacy. Drink icy for more of the hops or warmer for more malt.
- Raiden Imperial Saison: This amped up Imperial Saison has a blast of hops and CO2 that will hit your tongue with a bang. The aroma jumps out of the glass with its earthly and herbal notes not far behind.
- Scorpion Imperial Stout: A unique blend for great Imperial Stout brings both fire and ice into your glass. The fiery southwest chilies and cooling Madagascar Vanilla Bean pair nicely with the exotic notes produced by our own yeast strain.
This isn’t the first time the video game industry has tapped into brewing, with Bethesda having teamed up with Carlsberg UK to create some admittedly pricey crafts in celebration of Fallout 4, and even Anomaly: Warzone Earth getting a small 40-bottle production run back in 2012. It’s a great way for a brand to reach consumers with merchandising unexpected places, and if any video game series should foray into adult beverages, it may as well be one of the most non-kid-friendly franchises such as Mortal Kombat.
There’s no word yet as to when the beer will be ready for public consumption. However, but we will hop to it and share the news when the the brews get an official release date.
Despite the latest game launching over a year ago, this is the second time the Mortal Kombat property has made waves this week. As it happens, actress Megan Fox discussed her dream role earlier this month, saying she wanted to star in a Mortal Kombat film.
In strictly gaming news, Mortal Kombat X has been actively supported post-release by some brutal DLC ranging from the xenomorph from Alien to the horror legend Jason, both of which are prime examples that really solidify this whole “not-for-kids” theme that the beer is continuing. Now Dan Forden may have to say “tipsy” instead of “toasty,” though.
