Mortal Kombat beer is coming

Enjoy the hoppy bouquet of a Sub-Zero Imperial IPA later this year

The essence of Mortal Kombat veterans Sub-Zero, Scorpion and Raiden will be captured, craft beer-style, in a trio of Mortal Kombat X-inspired brews, thanks to Poulsbo, Washington's Sound Brewery. The officially licensed beers will be available in 22-ounce bottles coming soon.

Brews include an India pale ale, a saison and an imperial stout that — like the ninja Scorpion — pairs heat from southwest chilies with the sweet aroma of vanilla beans. All, presumably, have a clean finish.

Here's the lineup of Mortal Kombat-branded beers, which are being distributed by Global Beverage Traders, as described in a press release:

  • Sub-Zero Imperial IPA: Refreshingly cooling on a warm day, an Imperial India Pale Ale that's not all about the hops or the malt but is a whole lot of both fighting it out for your palate's supremacy. Drink icy for more of the hops or warmer for more malt.
  • Raiden Imperial Saison: This amped up Imperial Saison has a blast of hops and CO2 that will hit your tongue with a bang. The aroma jumps out of the glass with its earthly and herbal notes not far behind.
  • Scorpion Imperial Stout: A unique blend for great Imperial Stout brings both fire and ice into your glass. The fiery southwest chilies and cooling Madagascar Vanilla Bean pair nicely with the exotic notes produced by our own yeast strain.
