‘Brews Wayne’ Batman-Themed Beer is Strangely Not a Stout

If superheroes didn’t exist, Bruce Wayne would probably be an alcoholic. Thankfully, instead we got a hyper-aggressive masked vigilante/billionaire playboy with a flair for dramatic costuming. Oh, and this Batman-inspired beer, fittingly dubbed — of course —the Brews Wayne.

For the third year in a row, Denver Comic Con enlisted the help of Breckenridge Brewery to create an official superhero-themed beer for its upcoming annual convention. Following last year’s “Caped Brewsader,” 2014’s submission is also Gotham themed: an amber ale with a “hearty malt base and lively hop character,” meant to represent the duality of its “playboy by day and superhero by night” namesake, reports the Denver Post.

With 6.1% ABV, the limited-edition beer is perhaps a even more fitting a tribute to the Dark Knight than a black-as-vengeance stout or porter would be. Then again, considering how bleak and beefed up Affleck’s version is looking, maybe we will need something with a bit more brooding.
