The Official Beer of ECCC 2019


Fremont Brewing and Emerald City Comic Con are back together again to bring you the Dark Heron – an exclusive IPA specifically created as the Official Beer of Emerald City Comic Con 2019.

This year’s Dark Heron is a tropical and hazy IPA brewed with Citra, Strata, and Amarillo hops, filling your pint with juicy citrus and melon flavors!

The artwork for the 2019 Dark Heron was beautifully illustrated by local Seattle artist Julia Reck, a bi girl illustrator and designer who is known for her work with themes of queer joy and empowerment, fashion, and beautiful as she strives to explore on a wide range of what “beautiful” can look like. 

“When I started the Dark Heron project, I knew immediately that I wanted to reimagine her in a way that we don't typically see in the superhero genre,” says Julia.  “I wanted to show a joyful, powerful plus sized woman presented as heroic. I rarely see myself reflected in the superhero stories I grew up loving, so it was important to me to do design a character who other women with similar experiences could connect to.”

Fremont Brewing will be hosting a kickoff party at their Urban Beer Garden at 1050 N 34th St in Seattle on Thursday, February 7 from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM.  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!

Dark Heron will be available in the League of Libations Beer Garden at ECCC 2019, in bars and restaurants throughout Seattle and in 16 oz cans in regional grocery stores starting on Monday, February 4.
