Oregon-based Rogue Ales has crafted a limited-release beer for everyone’s favorite big red demon with a soft spot for kittens.
Right Hand of Doom Red Ale is available nationally at Rogue.com, but will have its official debut at Things from Another World Comics store in Oregon, where Hellboy creator Mike Mignola will be signing books alongside Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Eric Powell (The Goon) and Brian Wood (Rebels) this Friday, Feb. 20.
The beer is dedicated to the B.P.R.D., the government agency that Big Red fought alongside until he shuffled off his mortal coil to adventure in hell. Rogue Ales asserts that its latest creation is “brewed with all the same passion and intensity that Mike Mignola and Dark Horse have brought to Hellboy for the past 21 years.”
The ale is 6.8% alcohol by volume with five malts and three types of hops, aimed to create a drink as bracingly confrontational as Hellboy himself.
“When Dark Horse Comics published the first Hellboy story 21 years ago, I never imagine there’d be a Hellboy beer,” said Mignola in a statement. “But I really can’t imagine a better time for Rogue to introduce the Right Hand of Doom beer. If Hellboy was real, I guess he’d finally be able to buy me a beer.”
