How did ‘Caped Brewsader’ beat out ‘Fin Fang Foam’?

There’s something ingenious about a comics convention having a signature beer. If a wedding reception or cocktail party can have a signature drink then, hey, why not?

Last year, Denver Comic Con teamed with Breckendridge Brewery to create Fantastic Pour, an American-style wheat beer that was served during the event and at several area establishments. This year, the two collaborated on a Belgian Wit brewed with Buddha’s hand fruit, and then launched a contest for fans to come up with a name to rival last year’s.

The winner, the Denver Post reports, is “The Caped Brewsader,” submitted by Nathan Bowker. For his effort, he wins a year’s supply of beer,  four collector-edition Denver Comic Con Brewsader pint glasses, a Breckenridge beer-tap handle of the Brewsader, and some other swag.Bowker’s entry somehow beat out Joshua Bray’s “Kal Ale” — yes, that’s a Superman reference — which rightfully won the fan vote, and “Fin Fang Foam,” which should have won everything. Seriously: Fin Fang Foam!Ben Templesmith will design the label, pint glass and tap-handle art for The Caped Brewsader. Denver Comic Con will be held May 31-June 2.
