Can’t make it to San Diego Comic-con this weekend? The next best thing would be to have some Comic-con-esque beers shipped to you from our partners over at CraftShack. Snag the latest w00tstout, which is ready to drink now, yet perfect for the cellar. Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Get yourself and your GoT friends the Bend the Knee 3 Pack from Ommegang. Also check out some fine California made sour ales from Council Brewing. If none of these float your boat, we encourage you to check out their entire inventory, CraftShack has something for everyone.
Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2016 – This barrel-aged palate-saver has been a favorite among our fans—and us—since its inception in 2013. Pecans, wheat, flaked rye and bourbon-soaked wood provide this whopping, complex superhero version of an imperial stout with a profound complexity that makes it ideal for cellaring—if you can wait that long.
A special thanks to legendary comics artist Walt Simonson, who illustrated this year’s label to support The Hero Initiative.
Ommegang Bend the Knee 3 Pack – When fans last gripped their glasses at the end of Game of Thrones’ sixth season, the great houses of Westeros were on the brink of an epic conflict. Cersei had ascended to the Iron Throne as the first queen of Westeros, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark had just reclaimed the North, and Daenerys Targaryen had set sail for the Seven Kingdoms. To commemorate the coming mêlée in the Emmy® Award-winning show’s epic seventh season, Brewery Ommegang and HBO Global Licensing are excited to announce a new beer in their collaborative series: Bend the Knee Golden Ale.
Council Brewing Behind the Curtain – Blended from beer aged in six Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, this beer exhibits tart cherry pie and leather from the long aging as well as caramel dried currants, and bright acidity.
Council Staircase of Everlasting Peaches – The peach and tropical fruit derived from the Savignon Blanc barrels provide a supporting fruitiness and the oak tannins and vanilla round out this mesmerizing sour ale with a perpetual burst of fresh beach in every sip.
