Things We Saw Today: Devilish Hellboy Beer to Honor Our Favorite Dark Horse Hero
Mike Mignola created Hellboy in 1994, and since then, the character and stories have become beloved by comic and mythology fans around the world. In honor of that to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the publication Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, Nerdist reports that Oregon’s Gigantic Brewing and Dark Horse Comics are teaming up to create 666 cases of Hellboy beer.
Each beer will be based on Mike Mignola’s characters, and there will be six different Hellboy themed beers:
Hellboy- Maple Syrup Pancake Beer (6.66% abv), Liz Sherman- Mole Chili Stout (6.66% abv), Johann Kraus – Citrus Wit Beer (6.66% abv), Abe Sapien- Indigo Blue Ale (6.66% abv), Blood Queen – Cranberry Yuzu Sour (6.66% abv), and Trevor Bruttenholm- British Barleywine (9.99% abv).
I think a Hellboy-themed tasting is in order at The Mary Sue Office.

Yes, Thursday comes from “Thor’s Day,” which celebrated the Norse God of Thunder. The name Thor is derived from the name of the Germanic god of thunder, Thunraz, who is the equivalent to Roman god Jupiter who is the equivalent of the Greek God Zeus. So sadly, Happy Zeusday everyone.
