The Walking Dead comic, published by Skybound Entertainment, is getting an official beer. The announcement was made on July 24, and the beer will be made with Terrapin Beer Co., which is based in Athens, Georgia. This comic series inspired the AMC television show.
Fans can look forward to a blood orange IPA made from red India pale ale and brewed with blood orange peel. It is described as containing a “horrific amount of hops” and “will have you prepared for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse.”
The blood orange IPA will contain 6.7 percent alcohol by volume. There is no official release date yet.
Terrapin is known for making crazy seasonal and “side project” beers. For Halloween, they feature Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout with cocoa nibs and shells. Limited-time side project brews include a peanut butter and jelly-flavored porter called Liquid Lunch.
The Walking Dead television series is entering its sixth season and premieres on October 11.
