Hellboy is getting his own beer, which probably won't taste like Hellboy
This year marks the 21st anniversary of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy—and now that the celebrated demon-hero is finally of legal drinking age, he’s getting his very own beer named after him.
Created by Oregon-based microbrewery Rogue Ales, the beer—appropriately named The Right Hand of Doom—a limited-edition red ale making its debut Feb. 20 at Portland comics shop Things From Another World and available nationally via Rogue’s website.
“When Dark Horse Comics published the first Hellboy story 21 years ago, I never imagine there’d be a Hellboy beer,” said Mignola in a statement. “But I really can’t imagine a better time for Rogue to introduce the Right Hand of Doom beer. If Hellboy was real I guess he’d finally be able to buy me a beer.”
The label, which you can see for the first time above, features art by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola along with the standard government warnings and cash refund rates for recycling. While you probably shouldn’t incite any fiery apocalypses to pair with your Hellboy beer, no one would begrudge you for cracking one open should a fiery apocalypse occur.
