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.
