'Hellboy' Beers Returning with 666 Collectors Boxes
Last year, Oregon brewery Gigantic Brewing teamed with Dark Horse Comics to create six limited-edition beers based on Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, but fans who missed their chance to sample Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman or Johann Kraus-inspired flavors have one more chance to enjoy. Well, 666 more chances, technically.
Beginning later this month, Gigantic will offer a limited-edition Hellboy Collectors Box, featuring all six of the beers — Hellboy, Liz Sherman, Johann Kraus, Abe Sapien, Blood Queen and Trevor Bruttenholm — as well as 6x9 prints of the artwork Mignola and Dave Stewart created for each label, created exclusively for this release. Additionally, each box will include a taphandle magnet for each character.
Heat Vision breakdown
The boxes will be available via the Tavour.com app starting Monday — although only users who have entered the code “hellboy” into the app’s promo screen before that date will be able to order — with remaining boxes going up for sale in the Gigantic taproom starting at noon, Feb. 29. The boxes will be limited to 666 editions, each hand-numbered.
