Beavertown have announced a special collaboration with videogame publisher, 2K, in celebration of the upcoming release of Borderlands 3.
Bandit Brew is a light IPA, coming in at 2.8%; intentionally super sessionable so you can play and drink at the same time without affecting your hand-eye coordination. Anyone who’s ever tried to play their PS4 after a few big beers will know exactly what we’re talkin’ about…
This limited edition beer comes in its own full metal jacket – the artwork transports Borderlands’ iconic, Psycho Bandit, placing him in the strikingly similar, artistic world of Beavertown, created by Nick Dwyer.
“Working with Beavertown to create Bandit Brew was a natural fit – their art style, beers and brand persona is so Borderlands.
The recipe is perfect for enjoying a brew whilst being a badass Vault Hunter in the new game!” – Simon Turner, Head of Marketing and Comms UK (2K)
“When 2K proposed creating a beer with us, we just couldn’t say no. It’s been fantastic to create a brew for gaming, especially one designed for the iconic and chaotic Borderlands series.” – Sam Millard, Brand Manager (Beavertown)
Bandit Brew can be pre-ordered from the Beavertown online shop now and will be available from assorted stockists and bars across the UK from Friday, 13th September. Borderlands 3 is released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on the same day.
There is also a very special launch event taking place at Beavertown’s Tottenham based taproom where 100 lucky fans can play Borderlands 3 and drink Bandit Brew fresh from the source. Tickets are FREE but limited – sign up via Eventbrite here if you’d like to attend.
