Fallout fans can boost their strength and charisma — and get a little tipsy — with an official beer based on Bethesda's post-nuclear adventure. Just in time for Fallout 4 comes Fallout Beer, a boozy collaboration between publisher Bethesda Softworks and brewery Carlsberg.

The bad news for beer enthusiasts with a thirst for irradiated wastelands is that Fallout Beer is currently exclusive to the U.K., and although it's being sold on Amazon right now, it can't be shipped to North America.

Fallout Beer is, according to Amazon's description, a light-colored pilsner lager "with a refreshing zesty hoppy taste and a floral aroma." It has, appropriately enough, a 4 percent alcohol content. A 12-pack of Fallout Beer costs £29.99 and is expected to ship Nov. 5, just a few days before Fallout 4 launches on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
