The first 200 attendees to order a Hulk's Mash will receive a limited edition custom pint glass designed with art by Trevor Plaza. Join the FB event page here. Must be 21+ to attend.
This year's brew, made specially by Breckenridge Brewery as the official beer of Denver Comic Con 2015, is delightful pale ale made with mango puree and Mosaic hops. It may sound mild-mannered, but don’t be fooled. Mosaic hops produce an aromatic punch of mango, lemon, citrus, and earthy pine scents. Loads of pulverized mangos heroically balance the hoppy aroma and flavor.
As is tradition in March, Breckenridge Brewery hosted its on-line “Name the Comic Con Beer” contest. From 700 entries this year, 5 finalists were chosen. Then came a public vote. Hulk’s Mash, the clever conception of Jonathan Cooper, rose to the top and became the honored 2015 Comic Con beer name.
New to this year's process was the label artwork contest, sponsored by RMCAD. Members of the RMCAD community were invited to create label designs for Hulk’s Mash—artwork by Trevor Plaza was chosen to adorn limited-edition commemorative pint glasses. The glasses and Hulk’s Mash beer will be on sale at the conference. Select Denver pubs are signed on to carry the beer and offer glasses (while supplies last) during Denver Comic Con weekend.
