Can’t wait to try The Defender and we love the new superhero designed by FREEwilliamsburg favorite Tony Millionaire:
Comic-Con season is nearly upon us, and to celebrate this most imaginative and animated occasion we’ve tapped into our inner nerd (didn’t have to dig too far) and brewed up a limited-edition draft-only hoppy amber IPA named The Defender. The liquid portion of The Defender was designed by Brewmaster and certified Sci-Fi geek Garrett Oliver, the logo by vintage DC Comics logo designer Milton Glaser, and the hero himself by Tony Millionaire. Best known for Drinky Crow and the Maakies comic series, Mr. Millionaire’s first regularly published strip was in the “The Waterfront Week”, a Williamsburg-based newspaper well known in our north Brooklyn neighborhood. Years after doing us the honor of making our first neighborhood map, Tony has returned to grace us with The Brooklyn Defender personified, a masked hero come to rescue us from the brewing Megaliths.
On Tuesday, September 25 from 7:30-10:30pm, in league with the New York chapter of Comic-Con, we’ll be launching The Defender here at The Brooklyn Brewery Tasting Room. Open bar and swag giveaways. Costumes encouraged! Space is limited, so RSVP to reserve a spot. This party is for 21+ only.
Aside from pouring here at The Brewery, during Comic-Con some kegs of The Defender will find their way at the following bars (while supplies last — call ahead to confirm):
