Star Wars Beers Come Out in FORCE

Share Post

“Not long ago, in a beer town not too far away…,” reads the opening line of Wit’s End Brewing’s latest media release. It is safe to say that owner, Scott Witsoe–and pretty much the entire world–is super excited for the latest Star Wars, Star Wars The Force Awakens.

Wit’s End has already begun their celebration, previewing one of their Star Wars themed beers from Tuesday to Thursday, leading up to the movie release. Additionally, the Denver brewery will be showing other Star Wars movies through the weekend and will even award one fanatic a growler filled with their choice of one of their Star Wars-inspired beers, if they are voted to have the most unique Star Wars memorabilia.

“Well what would you expect from a brewery that’s owned by an 80s nerd,” jokes Witsoe.

All five Star Wars-inspired beers will be available on Friday, Dec. 18 in addition to their regular line up. Learn more about their celebration on Facebook.
