To say Jack Kirby is legendary would be an understatement. He worked alongside Stan Lee to co-create a long list of characters in the Marvel universe and beyond. to celebrate the late artist’s birthday, Shmaltz Brewery is teaming up with Hero Initiative to raise funds for the non-profit organization. Shmaltz came up with limited edition beers called King Kirby with labels featuring Kirby’s image. Paul Harding provided the art.
The King Kirby Ale will debut at a Shmalz-hosted event on Saturday, August 28th, in Clifton Park, New York, and attendees will be able to meet comics creators, taste the Kirby beer, and purchase cases of it. Proceeds from the event will go to the Hero Initiative. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
