The Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out today, Steph and I went to see it at midnight because we're cool like that. No spoilers below, but it made me wonder, what beer would I try and sell each Avenger?
A simple one to start with, Brooklyn Lager is the obvious choice for the Brooklyn born Steve Rogers. I would sell him it in a can so he can enjoy this amber coloured beer in all its glory no matter where he has to travel to for a mission.
Bruce needs to let off some steam when he has a beer and Brick's Archway Steam is a great beer for that. It's got a herbal aroma which is partnered with a nice clean finish which wouldn't make anyone angry.
For Natasha I recommend Arbor's smokescreen, the smoky chocolate and coffee note of this beer makes it a delicious choice. The Russian assassin may put up smokescreens herself but she won't have experienced one like this!
Clint is great with a bow and I reckon he likes his drinks to be as sharp as his arrows which is why I would recommend Westbrook's Gose. The salty sourness of this beer would definitely straighten his bow.
For Thor I can think of nothing better than Mikkeller's American Dream. Reflecting his Norse roots with a Danish brewer but heavily influenced by modern America. Aside from the name I think the God would really enjoy this great lager and could hammer a few bottles away easily.
Due to Tony Stark's past issues with the substance it's probably best to give him a Brew Dog Nanny State, which I think tastes fantastic for an alcoholic free beer. It has a great malty backbone but is still a very hoppy beer.
Do you think these beers suit the heroes? Feel free to come into the shop and argue with me.
