We’re just a few weeks away from the release date of the highly anticipated new installment to Bethesda’s Fallout video game series. It’s been a long time coming and after the premiere of the game’s trailer at E3 earlier in the year, it’s looking like Fallout 4 will be one of the hot gamer commodities going into the holiday season. Already listed on Bethesda’s merchandise website for the game are a plethora of clothing options, action figures, and other quirky accessories. (Sorry, no Pip Boys for you!) However, for those who reside in the UK, one very intriguing addition for the video game minded will be coming next month as well: Fallout 4 beer.
Bethesda has teamed up with Carlsberg UK for the special limited edition brew which is currently available for pre-order on Amazon for £29.99. According to the listing, the floral scented pilsner was concocted “using malted barleys combined with selected hops.” The brew’s release date is set for November 5th, which is just five days before the game’s official launch. Bruce Ray, corporate affairs director at Carlsberg UK, commented on their partnership with Bethesda by saying, ‘This is something of a world-first. Adult participation in video gaming is a truly social activity, on a par with cinema and music. We’re proud to work with Bethesda to produce a beer Fallout fans can enjoy.”
As mentioned earlier this new beer is only available to fans in the UK, which completely leaves open the possibility of a more fittingly named “Nuka Beer” to come to the states. I’m not saying that will actually happen, but it should. Whatever means you plan on achieving your buzz, get ready, as Fallout 4 hits shelves worldwide on November 10th.
