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.
