Welcome The Arrival Of Valiant’s New X-O Manowar Galactic Golden Ale At C2E2

by Staff

 

Valiant Entertainment and Chicago-based Pipeworks Brewing Co. have announced a collaboration to produce X-O Manowar Galactic Golden Ale. This will be a limited-edition beer release set to debut this April during C2E2 2017 and it will then be available from select beer retailers in Illinois and New York.

A portion of the proceeds from all sales of the beer will benefit Hope for the Day, a Chicago-based suicide awareness non-profit dedicated to outreach, education, and prevention.

Valiant say:

In the wake of the sold-out debut of Valiant’s epic new ongoing series from visionary creators Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello, Valiant and Pipeworks have joined forces to create a delicious and delectable golden ale inspired by Aric of Dacia’s empire-toppling conquest of a hostile alien world. Forged by an alien army and bottled in battle, the only thing more powerful than X-O MANOWAR GALACTIC GOLDEN ALE’s unstoppable hop aroma might be the ultra-powerful Shanhara armor itself…but you’ll have to do more than read the back of the bottle to find out! 

The beer features a label with the artwork of Valiant-exclusive artist Lewis LaRosa, and Pipeworks’ brand-new beer will make its official debut on Friday, April 21st at the C2E2 2017: X-O Manowar Galactic Golden Ale Release Party – from 7 to 11 pm CT at Chicago’s Cobra Lounge (235 N. Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60607).

Co-sponsored by Valiant Entertainment, Pipeworks Brewing Co., and Hope for the Day, the first 75 party-goers will receive a strictly limited X-O Manowar (2017) #1 cover flat – a rare, unbound comic cover pulled directly from the printing press and signed by Valiant staff and creators.

Portions of the proceeds from the event’s $5 door charge and all pints of the new beer that are poured will be donated to Hope for the Day, supporting their suicide prevention outreach and mental health education projects.

You can RSVP for the event online at Facebook or Eventbrite.
