Revolution Brewing Named Official Beer Sponsor of Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo

CHICAGO — For the 6th year running, Revolution Brewing’s Galaxy-Hero IPA blasts onto the scene as the official beer of the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2). C2E2 2018, organized by ReedPop, will take place on Friday, April 6 through Sunday, April 8 at the McCormick Place. Chicago’s largest independent brewery will return to C2E2 as the official beer sponsor and participating vendor, bringing an array of comic-inspired merchandise, including the newest issue of the Galaxy-Hero comic book series. Revolution will also host a panel discussion on the brewery’s origin and the expansion of their League of Heroes on Friday, April 6 at 7:45pm.

To build on their love of beer innovations and comic art, Revolution will be releasing Double Dry-Hopped Galaxy-Hero on draft and in 6-packs at their Tap Room and Brewpub on Friday, March 9th. The special edition, supercharged version of Galaxy-Hero features two rounds of dry-hops instead of one, each containing double the hops of Galaxy-Hero. Double Dry-Hopped Galaxy-Hero 6-packs will be distributed widely across Revolution’s footprint, in addition to availability at their Tap Room and Brewpub.

The build-up to C2E2 will continue when Revolution hosts their annual Cosplay Party at the Tap Room on Friday, March 16th from 6:00 – 10:00pm. The night will include beer, comic and art vendors, a Cosplay contest, and a chance to win C2E2 3-day passes.

About C2E2:

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo – also known as C2E2 – is the largest pop culture convention in the Midwest, spanning the latest and greatest from the world of comics, movies, television, toys, anime, manga and video games. From a Show Floor packed with hundreds of Exhibitors and Artist Alley members, to Panels, Autograph Sessions and screening rooms featuring sneak peeks at upcoming films and television shows, C2E2 gives fans a chance to interact with their favorite Creators and Celebrities and delivers a weekend of pop culture and fandom in downtown Chicago. C2E2 is also home to the C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay, the world’s biggest and most prestigious costume contest with a $10,000 prize.

About Galaxy-Hero:

Galaxy-Hero shoots a raygun blast of Galaxy hops into your mouth, leaving a crisp, dry finish. The use of the Australian hop variety infuses the IPA with tropical fruit and citrus flavors and aromas. As the original disciple of Anti-Hero, Chicago’s #1 selling IPA, Galaxy-Hero was the first member of Revolution’s popular Hero Series of rotating specialty IPAs, which focus on a single hop or flavor profile. Outside of C2E2 2018, Galaxy-Hero is available on draft and in 6-packs of 12oz cans throughout Revolution Brewing’s entire distribution footprint.
