Ignore the drool, Mike Norton's 'Battlepug' has its own brew for C2E2

Chicago's Arcade Brewery has partnered with cartoonist Mike Norton to create Battlepug, a hoppy brown ale inspired by his Eisner Award-winning webcomic.

The beer, which boasts a label drawn by Norton and the slogan "A Hoppy Brown Ale You'll Drool Over," will debut next week, just in time for the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo.

The craft brewery will also re-release Festus Rotgut: Zombie Cowboy, the first volume of its 6-Pack Stories, a black wheat ale that featured a Western zombie tale by writer Jason Aaron and artist Tony Moore told across the labels of each of the six bottles.

Both will be available in Chicago-area bottle shops, or for purchase online at West Lakeview Liquors and The Beer Temple. C2E2 will be held April 24-26 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
