Carlsberg have made Fallout Beer for some reason

Fallout Beer

When you think of a Fallout beverage, chances are you’re thinking of Nuka Cola, a drink so tough that it can survive the nuclear apocalypse. It’s unlikely that you’re thinking of Carlsberg Fallout Beer, because it’s only just popped into existence.

Yes, the brewers of mediocre lager have inexplicably joined forces with Bethesda to produce bottles of 4% pilsner.

What’s the connection to Fallout, you ask? Erm… it’s got ‘Fallout Beer’ on the label? I think that’s about it. There doesn’t appear to be any other connection to the series or Fallout 4 specifically. The taste doesn’t scream ‘apocalypse’ either, which is probably for the best. Carlsberg say that it has a hoppy taste and a flora aroma.    

"This is something of a world-first," Carlsberg UK Corporate Affairs Director Bruce Ray said. "Adult participation in videogaming is a truly social activity, on a par with cinema and music. We’re proud to work with Bethesda to produce a beer Fallout fans can enjoy."

I’d hazard that Fallout fans have, for years, been able to enjoy beers without videogame tie-ins, but in case this is what you’ve been waiting for all your life, you might want to take a gander at the price

That’s £30 for 12 lagers. Those labels are pretty damn expensive, it seems. 

Fallout Beer is only available in the UK.

They should man up and make Nuka Cola already with extra durable bottle caps.

it's because it's probably best officially licensed game beer in the world.

Now Carlsberg might taste like irradiated piss instead!

This is a excellent piece of journalism. Pulitzer quality. I spit out my Bell's Two Hearted Ale at the headline and "mediocre lager" reference.

For some reason truly, not for any a real Fallout fan and beer connoisseur will be able to fathom.

I was certainly thinking about a Pulitzer as I wrote this. Glad it came across.

It isn't journalism it's a rant. And a very good one.

That is awesome! But, there is no way I am paying extra for a label. That is like when beer companies make team specific labels during certain sporting events. No! However, I am an older gamer and my friends and I will be playing that weekend when Fallout drops and I plan on making my own labels since what they did is anything special it will be fairly easy to do. It will be good for a few laughs.
