Blizzard Shows Off Special Edition BlizzCon Beer
Blizzard Entertainment has a history of partnering up with brewing company Bottle Logic to bring alcoholic beverages to fans inspired by the company and its various properties. With BlizzCon just around the corner, it seems only natural that the two have paired up once again to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the StarCraft franchise.
A recent blog post from Blizzard reveals that the event will feature four con-exclusive beverages inspired by the StarCraft series and crafted by Bottle Logic. Below are the four different drinks and their descriptions ranging from an IPA, a Pale Ale, a Stout, and even a more sour beer for those tart lovers out there.
- Power Overwhelming (5.9% ABV): StarCraft’s 20th anniversary commemorative beer, Power Overwhelming, is a soft, tropical, deliciously easy-to-drink IPA in a limited-edition collectible can. While it won’t help you fuse into a supernal consciousness bent on eradicating the enemies of Aiur, you and a like-minded friend can line up your cans to show off both sides of a wraparound label that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
- Haze of Adun Pal Ale (5% ABV): Haze of Adun’s pure and shining golden hue was inspired by the armor elite templar wear into battle. Its downy mouthfeel and juicy citrus bitterness might fill you with the very same psychic relaxation that washes over protoss warriors after victory against the zerg, or that might be a complete stretch. The beer’s still delicious.
- Nydus Nectar Tart Ale (5% ABV): Nydus Nectar is a tart berliner weisse brewed with heaps of fresh blueberries and raspberries to produce a distinctive, brilliant purple hue. Its aroma brings to mind the humid primordial funk of Zerus, and it tastes much, much better than disgorging dozens of zerglings from your tunnel-sized maw.
- Stimpack Stout (8% ABV): A unique, subtly smoky coffee beer, Stimpack Stout has considerably more pleasant aftereffects than the more traditional Dominion psych-up. It’s lightly sweet and syrupy, and balances smoke and rich coffee flavors for a terran-friendly vibe that’ll leave you vigorously defending the jukebox.
From November 2nd to November 3rd, fans will be able to try these delicious drinks at stations around the Anaheim Convention Center and at the neighboring Anaheim Marriott hotel bar, but only while supplies last. In addition to being able to sample the different brews during the con, fans will be able to take home the “Power Overwhelming” drink in collectible cans that can be found both of previously listed locations.
Alternatively, Blizzard asks that fans check out Bottle Logic’s tasting room for even more amazing beverages. Will you be testing these Bottle Logic beers for yourself?
