Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes out December 16. But you already know that because, well, it’s a Star Wars movie. Advanced tickets are now on sale, so I think it’s okay to officially start giggling like the basement-dwelling super-fans we truly are and start thinking about a galaxy far, far away during every waking moment. Especially when we drink beer. So we found 9 beers that were inspired by and pay homage to Star Wars. Check out the gallery and let us know which is your favorite.

Toppling Goliath Light Speed
The brewery originally called this one Millennium Falcon, thanks to the mix of Millennium hops and Falconer's Flight blend.

New England Imperial Stout Trooper
New England Brewing tweaked the label after Lucas Film raised objections to the artwork, but we like this original version best.
3 of 9
Empire Brewing Company Strikes Bock
The upstate New York brewery first released this German lager under the name Empire Strikes Bock, but Lucas Film took exception to the name. So Empire dropped the "Empire." Clever.
4 of 9
Snake River OB-1
Out of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Snake River named this beer OB-1 because it was their Organic Beer number one. Did you read that, lawyers? Sadly, they no longer brew OB-1.

The Brew Kettle Dark Helmet Lager
An imperial schwarzbier, with the slogan "may the Schwarz be with you." Is it still a Star Wars beer if the beer is named after the fake movie honoring the original movie?
6 of 9
Lack of Faith, from Garage Project out of New Zealand, who pulled the name from a Darth Vader quote, when he tells admiral Motti, "I find your lack of faith disturbing," while choking him with The Force. Cool.

Gilgamesh Brewing Vader
This is a black IPA brewed with coffee. I think they're mixing their metaphors here, with the name of the brewery, but they also have a "DJ Jazzy Hef" hefeweizen, so I'm gonna let it go.

Dolores River Brewery Death Star
I've never had it, and I'm pretty sure it's a tap-room only beer, but that label makes me want to commit to a road trip.

Westbrook Brewing Dark Helmet
This schwarzbier is part of Westbrook's rotating lineup. It's a black rye lager loaded with chocolate malts. Also, like the Brew Kettle, Westbrook says, "may the Schwarz be with you."
