Universal Studios Entertainment & 4 Hands Brewing Set to Release Voltron, Series One Beer
In an exciting development, St. Louis’ own 4 Hands Brewing Company has announced a collaborative endeavor with Universal Studios Entertainment, World Events Productions (WEP), LLC, and a selection of the country’s best breweries.
Voltron was a popular animated television series that originally aired in the mid-1980s. Produced by World Events Productions, the show centered around a team of young pilots controlling a group of robot lions that combine to form Voltron, a gigantic robot warrior. Voltron, often called the “Defender of the Universe,” battles evil forces to maintain peace across the galaxy.
The Voltron-inspired beer series starts with the release of “Volume One,” a Hazy IPA brewed by 4 Hands Brewing in partnership with Narrow Gauge Brewing Co. The collaboration between the two breweries resulted in a super citrusy IPA enriched with Thiolized Yeast, Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy Hops, boasting a 7.5 ABV.
This unique beer launches at 4 Hands Brewing Company’s downtown St. Louis brewery in the LaSalle Park neighborhood on May 26. “Volume One” will initially be offered on draft and in four-packs of 16oz cans, available exclusively at the 4 Hands brewery with statewide distribution following next week, allowing beer enthusiasts across Missouri to indulge in this flavorful tribute to the iconic Voltron.
