New York Comic Con is almost upon us. Just like they have in years past Brooklyn Brewery is once again teaming up with ReedPOP, the world’s largest producer of pop culture events to create a beer for New York Super Week, the week leading up to the convention. Amy Reeder of Rocket Girl and Madame Xanadu fame has been recruited to redesign the beer’s label and the female hero featured on it, Brooklyn Defender. Brooklyn Defender is the first female to go with a New York Comic Con beer, and she does, in fact, look like she’s ready to defend beer.
OtakusandGeeks was front and center during the release party of the new beer on September 10, 2014. Brooklyn Defender will serve as the official beer not just for NYCC, but for the larger New York Super Week that has sprung up this year to involve more of the city in the festivities. Look for Brooklyn Defender during NYCC and New York Super Week, but remember to con responsibly.
