JRR Tolkien’s fantasy novel The Hobbit is the next in line to be the basis of a new range of beers.
Following the release of Star Trek drinks and Game of Thrones wine, the Hobbit beer range will emulate the characters of Gollum (Smeagol), the Dragon Smaug, and the Orc chieftain Bolg.
The beer will be brewed in Olympia, Washington, by the Fish Brewing Company. In keeping with the fantasy world’s characters, the range will include a “Precious” Imperial Pilsner with Northwest hops, a Russian Imperial Stout mildly flavoured with Habanero chillies, and a smooth, Belgian style Tripel.
The beers are set to be released later this month, in 22oz serve bottles only, but there has been no specific information as to when they will reach the UK.
