Chicago craft brewery, Arcade Brewery, announced today that it will release its first volume of 6-Pack Stories tomorrow. Festus Rotgut: Zombie Cowboy is a western zombie comic by Jason Aaron and Tony Moore across six bottles of Black Wheat Ale. The beer was brewed after the story has been created…

"Since there are zombies, I immediately thought something dark," said Tourre. "Driving a heard of cattle across the dusty landscape also made me immediately go to a dry wheat beer."

Tourre says he used some specialty roasts to create marshmallow and caramel flavors. He dry hopped the beer too, which Tourre says gives it a spicy finish.

This is just the first… more to come. Festus Rotgut is a limited release and will be available in Chicago area bottle shops. See a map of locations at arcadebrewery.com/beers, or you can buy it online at West Lakeview Liquors, The Beer Temple, and Binny's Beverage Depot.

Arcade Brewery will host tastings of Festus Rotgut on Wednesday at the following Chicago locations: Kimbark Beverage, Binnys Lincoln ParkBottles & Cans, and West Lakeview Liquors.
