The Official Beer of ECCC 2018

Fremont Brewing

Dark Heron

Dark Heron – An Expressive IPA!

Fremont Brewing and Emerald City Comic Con are back together again to bring you Dark Heron – an exclusive IPA specifically created as the Official Beer of Emerald City Comic Con 2018.

This year’s Dark Heron is a loud, expressive IPA brewed with Strata, El Dorado, Comet, Citra, and Centennial hops. Golden-amber in color, Dark Heron IPA is bursting with citrus, tropical, floral, and stone fruit notes.

The artwork for the 2018 Dark Heron was beautifully illustrated by local Seattle artist Jeffrey Veregge. Veregge drew inspiration from his Native American roots and his training in the art of Salish formline design to bring this year’s Dark Heron a whole new look. The new artwork will be featured on all labels of the new beer and Fremont will have exclusive merch available at their Urban Beer Garden and onsite at ECCC.

The beer will be available for the first time on Thursday, February 1 at the Fremont Brewing Urban Beer Garden at 1050 N 34th St in Seattle. Fremont will be launching the new beer with ticket giveaways and of course, great beer. Come hang out and try the new edition of Dark Heron beer. Cosplay is strongly encouraged!

ECCC and Fremont Brewing will also be teaming up for a kickoff party at the Seattle location of Mox Boarding House on Thursday, February 8 from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Join the ECCC and Fremont teams as they celebrate Dark Heron and kickoff the ECCC season with beers and board games!

Dark Heron will also be available in the League of Libations Beer Garden at ECCC 2018, in bars and restaurants throughout Seattle and in 22 oz. bottles in regional grocery stores starting on Friday, February 2.
