Our Star Wars post Strikes Back

Star Wars is a religion to us. You might say we love it more than beer. (Might.) If you are a Star Wars fan it’s a great time to be alive. Today is May the 4th and we’ve been geeking hard since the sun came up.

So, here’s is our annual Star Wars post, updated with some new stuff, spanning beers that are real and fake. Reminder – whether light side or dark side, drink beer. May the force be with you.

Fresno, California based Tioga Sequoia is releasing The Last JeD.I.P.A in honor of Star Wars Day 2017.

Garage Project Lack of Faith

New Zealand’s Garage Project has a black IPA called “Lack of Faith”. The “lack” of it in our fridge is disturbing. Image: Garage Project

Toppling Goliath Light Speed

Toppling Goliath boasts a “Light Speed” pale ale, brewed with Millennium and Falconer’s Flight hops of course. That’s light speed kid.

Below – got a little drunk few years ago on Star Wars day. Been to the gym three or four times since then.

The most epic Star Wars themed beer out there. This is the old label, before Lucas sued over the image. Later they added the Groucho Marx glasses to the helmet. 

This was/still is a prototype for what we think is the most badass flask in the world.

Han Solo Blaste

2016 Star Wars day with our good friend Zoe. The helmet got foggy. 

Just an epic name.  The force is strong with Sierra Nevada. 

Terrapin Beer Co’s Dark Side. Imperial indeed.


Actually a real beer. Brew Kettle is in Ohio. Ok, that’s more like  Spaceballs. 


Heady Shot First. Bought this Life Size Greedo bust at Star Wars Celebration.

Not Real. Just Funny. “It’s a Trappist!”

Hans Solo. I knew that scoundrel was German. 

Beer for the Light Side?

Of course it would come in a can. 

Very much real. I’ve seen it. 

Not real. 


Close enough. The bottle opener is the most epic in our repertoire. 

Firestone Walker Wookey Jack

Westbrook Dark Helmet. (Ok, more Spaceballs, but we count it.)

Oskar Blues loves them some Star Wars.

Vader drinks on the Dark Side. 


Brewdog takes care of some insolence.


Epic. And real. 


Sorry Garfunkel. We don’t hock Trek here.  

Probably the most epic pic ever taken in the Brick Store Pub cellar.  The Oompa Loopas are the Watts family from Terrapin Beer, Augustus Gloop is Kevin from United Distributing, tall guy is Lee from Liberator Distributing. (Stormtrooper is obvious.)

And a really big infographic.
