Dark Heron Official Beer of Emerald City Comicon 2017

000 eccc17 beerPress Release:

Fremont Brewing and Emerald City Comicon have teamed up again to bring you the Dark Heron – an exclusive IPA specifically created as the Official Beer of Emerald City Comicon 2017, featuring a female superhero lead – Dark Heron.

This year’s Dark Heron defends the taste buds of her city against the Bland Beer League with a secret weapon of an explosive, international combo of American Experimental Hop HBC 438®, German Super-Hop Huell Melon and the Wonder Down Under Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. Combining their fruity, tropical, and spicy aromas and flavor with the Legendary Northwest malts and a zap! of Oats, Dark Heron transforms water into a bold, expressive IPA and saves you from another corporate-mandated Bland Beer.

The beer will be available for tasting at a debut party sponsored by Emerald City Comicon and Fremont Brewing on Thursday, February 2 at the Fremont Brewing Urban Beer Garden – 1050 N 34th St in Seattle.

In celebration of the Pacific Northwest’s largest and most heroic pop culture festival (as well as Seattle’s official bird and Fremont Brewing’s logo), cartoonist Jennifer Vaughn (Nicki Minaj: The Empire, Plants Vs Zombies: Heroes) adapted Fremont Brewing’s heron logo and crafted the bold spirit of Dark Heron to embody the modern heroine.

Dark Heron will be available on tap at ECCC 2017, in bars and restaurants throughout Seattle and in 22 oz. bottles in regional grocery stores starting Friday, February 3, 2017.

WA – An Evening with Anna Kendrick

0000_akendrick-booktourActress ANNA KENDRICK (Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air) appears on Monday, November 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM to present her new book: Scrappy Little Nobody! Tickets available at the link.

Few people possess a charming candor like Academy Award-nominated actress Anna Kendrick in her new collection of autobiographical essays, Scrappy Little Nobody. Sharing her observations of pop culture and stories from her life, including reviewing a binder full of butt doubles and her dual life as a middle-school student and Broadway performer, the star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect creates a picture of idiosyncratic Hollywood moments and captivatingly ordinary tales of a quirky girl. Experience Kendrick’s sharp wit in person at an author book discussion.

Born and raised in Portland, Maine, ANNA KENDRICK made her Broadway debut at the age of twelve for her Tony-nominated performance in the musical “High Society.” Since her Academy Award-nominated role as Natalie Keener in “Up in the Air,” she has made numerous theatrical appearances, including starring roles in Into the Woods and “The Twilight Saga” and “Pitch Perfect” film franchises. In 2013, she achieved musical success with the #2 Billboard hit song, “Cups (When I’m Gone),” featured in “Pitch Perfect.” Kendrick stars in “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” in theaters now, and in upcoming films including “The Accountant,” “Trolls,” and “The Hollars.” She will reprise her role as Beca in “Pitch Perfect 3,” coming in 2017.
