Jimmy Palmiotti And Darwyn Cooke Tell A Story On A Six-Pack Of Beer

What happens when you combine an artist, a writer, a six-pack of beer? The answer is Arcade Brewery 6-Pack Stories, one comic across six bottles of beer.

The Chicago craft brewery, Arcade Brewery, announced Friday that it is releasing a second volume to their series, 6-Pack Stories™ on November 18.

Last year the brewery teamed with Jason Aaron and Tony Moore to created Festus Rotgut: a Black Wheat Ale paired with a zombie western tale.

This year, Arcade partnered with Jimmy Palmiotti and Darwyn Cooke to create The Adventures of Dutch Courage, a Session Ale brewed with juniper berries and lemon peel.

“When we first saw the comic, the beach setting seemed to demand an easy drinking beer while the retro feel inspired us to add subtle classic cocktail flavors of juniper and lemon peel. A easy drinking, malt-forward beer with a subtle gin cocktail quality, we hope the flavor profile mimics the twists and turns of the story. It should be an unexpected journey on both sides of the glass,” said Arcade Brewery Co-Owner Chris Tourre.

“I had a blast working on this with my good friend Darwyn and feel Dutch Courage making his first appearance on the side of a beer bottle is oneof the best ways ever to launch a character,” said Palmiotti.

“If you stop and think about all the beer Jimmy and I have consumed over the years, it’s about time we did something like this,” said Cooke.

The Adventures of Dutch Courage, a Session Ale will be available at four locations in Chicago on the 18th; The Beer Temple, Capones Liquor, Prestige Liquors (Westmont), and Binny’s (Lincoln Park).

Arcade Brewery has a “beer map” on their website, displaying all of their retailers. If you don’t live in Chicago you can purchase the beer online from The Beer Temple and West Lakeview Liquors.
