Excelsior! Mankato Brewery Honors Stan Lee with a Special Beer

The Minnesota-based Mankato Brewery has created a Lee-inspired line of beer named Marvelous Creator, with Lee's familiar visage adorning the packaging and dressed to resemble his co-creation Doctor Strange. The brewery shared the news through their official Facebook page, announcing they were canning the special brew next week.

Expected to be available in late February or early March, the beer is a citrus blended double dry-hopped India Pale Ale with an 8 percent alcohol by volume content.

Founded in 2012 in Mankato, Minnesota, Mankato Brewery features many beers with a comic book or pop culture-influenced branding with most of the products offered carrying comic book paneled packaging. With its upcoming special Stan Lee-inspired beer, the brewery has made its influences clear with a nod to the man that co-created much of the Marvel Universe and served as the publisher's editor-in-chief during one of its most pivotal periods.
