Forget about Dungeons & Dragons themed sodas and grab pint of fantasy inspired beer! Fantasy Brewmasters aims to provide “incredible beers based on fictional worlds.” They are a community of artists, writers, and craft brewers that cater to the roleplaying gamer crowd.
They currently have two project beers in development: FrothBeard and HogWort. The best part is that the creation of these beers are community driven. The community can give their input on the recipes (which are “open source” and released), art, and story (yeah, each beer has a story) via their forums or through contests.
In order select the art and story for their beers they run contests. While I missed the boat on the current story contest, Monday they announced the winners of the Dwarven storyline, Dave Martin and Robert Lee. The winners, got to took home $500! (EDIT: Ahhh, made the rookie mistake of not writing the post according to the time when it is scheduled to go live.)
Anyways, I hope Fantasy Brewmasters keeps the beer flowing and becomes a success. Because beer and gaming is a recipe for awesome in my cookbook.

Roleplaying-theme beers? Now we’re talking!
I hope they can make it widely available through some means or other.

What an interesting idea. Now I’m tempted to brew up a batch for the launch of my new setting.

There is definitely room at my table for game-inspired brews. Thanks for commenting, everyone.
Hey everyone, thanks for the writeup and the great comments!
Tyler – you’re correct, broad distro is one of the major hurdles, but also a key part of developing for a niche market. It’s a major project, but national distro is one of our primary goals.
