Every day the people of New York City drink tasteless substitutes for beer. It’s time to stand up for what’s right!
New York Comic Con and Brooklyn Brewery are proud to announce the creation of the Official Beer of NYCC 2013, the Brooklyn Defender! The Brooklyn Defender fights back against the monotony of a crappy beer with rich and complex flavors, bringing a strong body to every glass and fight. With a visage straight from the mind of comic artist Cliff Chang, the Brooklyn Defender is ready for comic nerds and beer aficionados alike. The Brooklyn Defender is not just the beer NYCC fans deserve, it’s the beer you need.

Brooklyn Defender Release Party
Defend beer and try the Brooklyn Defender at the Brooklyn Defender NYCC Release Party, Saturday, September 21 from 8:30 PM – midnight at Brooklyn Brewery (79 N 11th Street, Brooklyn NY 11249). Featuring an open bar, NYCC 3-Day Ticket giveaways and special guests including Defender artist Cliff Chang, this event is not for mild taste buds.
Sorry, but this event is full. Check out one of our pint nights below to get a taste of the Brooklyn Defender!
If you can’t make the Release Party, the Brooklyn Defender will be taking down skunked beer across NYC during the NYCC Pint Night series. Take home a limited edition Brooklyn Defender pint glass when you do your part to Defend Beer (while supplies last). You don’t need to RSVP for these events, but we do recommend showing up early to get your paws on these limited edition beer vessels!
