Care Package from Black Hops

Yes, Call of Duty Beer Edition

Almost like a fairytale this story is. Gamers, how good is a beer to sip on between games, while sitting in the online lobby waiting for the next round? Well, how about beer branded appropriately?

This care package comes from the Gold Coast in Queensland made by Black Hops Brewing. A small brewery started by a team of three have announced this brew for sale from November 2nd.

If you love Call of Duty it will be hard to not want all the cases.

“This is a dream partnership. We love Call of Duty, so when the idea of creating Black Hops III to celebrate the launch of the new game came up, everyone was excited, the rest is history.” Said Michael ‘Govs’ McGovern, Head Brewer and Co-Founder of Black Hops Brewing.

When given the task to make a beer like this though, it needs two things – to be branded appropriately yet still taste good.

“The beer is black in colour, but light and refreshing like a traditional pale ale, perfect for the Aussie summer.  It’s made with an ingredient new to the market from the U.S. called “midnight wheat” a roasted de-husked wheat grain that provides a rich dark colour without the bitterness you would expect from a dark beer. It messes with your mind, a bit like the Black Ops storyline I guess.” Said Govs. 

Call of Duty: Black Hops III Midnight Pale Ale will be available in limited quantities, exclusively via in both six packs and 24 bottle cartons from 1:00pm on 2nd November, 2015.
