Dark Horse is celebrating Hellboy‘s 21st birthday properly with this limited edition Right Hand of Doom Red Ale created by Rogue Ales. The birthday brew is scheduled to debut on Friday at Things From Another World Comics during a signing with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, along with Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Eric Powell (The Goon) and Brian Wood (Rebels).
“When Dark Horse Comics published the first Hellboy story 21 years ago, I never thought there’d be a Hellboy beer,” Mignola said in a press release. “But I really can’t imagine a better time for Rogue to introduce the Right Hand of Doom beer. If Hellboy was real, I guess he’d finally be able to buy me a beer.”
Get all the deets after the break.
“Hellboy has appeared in graphic novels and comic books, prose novels, two animated features, two live action films, toy lines and all manner of merchandise,” Mike Richardson, President of Dark Horse, added in a statement. “Rogue Ales approached us with the idea of creating a heavy-handed, supernatural red ale and we loved the idea of two independent, Portland based companies coming together to create something new that would be both fun for fans and worthy of the Mike Mignola’s creative legacy.”
“This beer is dedicated to the B.P.R.D,” Brett Joyce, President of Rogue Ales, said in the announcement. “Right Hand of Doom is brewed with all the same passion and intensity that Mike Mignola and Dark Horse have brought to Hellboy for the past 21 years.”
Brewed with Chocolate and Munich malts with Bravo, Perle & Cascade Hops, the beer is 6.8% ABV and 82 IBU. Make sure to check Rogue’s website for shipping restrictions.
