Valiant and Arcade Brewery Announce Archer & Armstrong American Pale Ale
Valiant Entertainment and Chicago’s own Arcade Brewery have announced a first-of-its-kind collaboration for Archer & Armstrong American Pale Ale – a refreshing craft APA set to debut this March during C2E2 2016! Just as Valiant’s award-winning adventurers prepare to mount a star-studded return with an all-new ongoing series in A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #1 this March, Valiant and Arcade are gearing up to unveil a delectable new libation inspired by comics’ premier pair of history-shattering heroes and their upcoming journey into the infinite reaches of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel!
One’s an immortal libertine with a lust for the finer things, the other is a teetotaling ex-assassin with a heart of gold…and now Arcade is perfectly embodying their dysfunctional partnership with a medium-bodied ale like no other! Hopped with Columbus, Chinook, Palisade, Cascade and Mandarina, Archer & Armstrong American Pale Ale builds on a light malt profile to create a complex and wonderful citrus/tangerine character. Clocking in at 7.0% alcohol by volume, Arcade’s first Valiant-inspired ale has all the fight of a long night out with Armstrong…but is slightly sweet enough to keep Archer in the game too!
Featuring a label emblazoned with the artwork of Valiant-exclusive superstar David Lafuente, Arcade’s brand-new APA creation will make its official debut on Saturday, March 19th at the C2E2 2016: Archer & Armstrong American Pale Ale Release Party – from 7 to 11 pm CT at Headquarters Beercade’s River North location (213 W. Institute Pl., Chicago, IL 60610)!
Co-sponsored by Valiant Entertainment, Arcade Brewery, Threadless, and non-profit Hope for the Day, the first 200 party-goers will receive a strictly limited A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 ARCADE BREWERY VARIANT by artist Jay Fabares and get the chance to have it signed on-site by writer Rafer Roberts! Each attendee will also be entered in a door-prize drawing for a bottomless satchel full of A&A treasures galore, including a complete set of Archer & Armstrong trade paperbacks, a one-of-a-kind sketch cover by A&A’s own Rafer Roberts, official Archer & Armstrong swag, and much more!
Following in the footsteps of Arcade’s past comics-inspired collaborations with some of the industry’s most popular and well-respected creators, including Jason Aaron, Darwyn Cooke, Tony Moore, Jimmy Palmiotti, and more, Archer & Armstrong American Pale Ale is a limited release and will be available in Chicago area bottle shops. See a map of locations at ArcadeBrewery.com/Beers or buy online at West Lakeview Liquors, The Beer Temple, and Binny’s Beverage Depot.
