some Dutch Courage coming up in Chicago area


The Arcade Brewery has the Adventures of Dutch Courage coming out now in Chicago area beer stores. It is the second volume of their 6-Pack Stories: a special release beer inspired by the 6-panel comic on the bottles!

Arcade describes this year's beer as "enjoyable and unique as Dutch Courage. With subtle hints of juniper berries and lemon peel, this refreshing beer pairs perfectly with a comic full of twists and turns!"

Comic created by Jimmy Palmiotti & Darwyn Cooke.

for more info, check with Arcade Brewery or their facebook page where they recently announced:

"6-Pack Stories Packaging day! What an absolutely awesome beer with a nice bitter bite and hints of juniper and lemon peel. The complexity and depth of this session ale (4.6% ABV) is outstanding. Hitting shelves 11.18.15 - 6PM at The Beer Temple, Capones Liquor, Prestige Liquors and Binny's (Lincoln Park)."
