Now this is a trend I can get behind! Alchemic Ale, the makers of Ron Regé Jr.’s pioneering minicomic/beer hybrid Yeast Hoist #15, have returned to the underground-comics well, this time with a bottle full of Mat Brinkman. The Fort Thunder alumnus and Regé’s fellow Highwater Books veteran has graced a 750mL bottle of Bokrijks Belgian Ale from Belgium’s Brouwerij Sterkens with a drawing entitled “Monsters,” from his current gallery show at NYC’s The Hole.
Here’s a guide to where the beer can be bought. Chug-a-lug, artcomix fans!

Now this is the sort of format innovation I can get behind: Yeast Hoist #15, the latest in cartoonist/musician Ron Regé Jr.‘s long-running (mostly) self-published alternative-comics series, is part comic, part limited-edition bottle of beer.
The aptly named Yeast Hoist #15 includes a 16.9-ounce bottle of St. Sebastiaan Golden Ale from Belgium’s Brouwerij Sterkens. A screenprinted Regé illustration graces the bottle, which comes complete with a minicomic featuring Regé’s usual “inspired by mysticism and alchemy” cosmic comics shenanigans. I’ll drink to that!
Tipplers and/or comics connoisseurs may order the issue/bottle from Bierkraft — provided you’re 21 years old and can sign for the delivery, that is. If you don’t drink, don’t worry: Regé’s entire Yeast Hoist series is slated for publication on Jordan Crane’s webcomics portal What Things Do. Here are issues #1 and #2.
