From Marz: "In honor of this 2-Player campaign, we brewed a beer to keep you hydrated while you mash buttons or tilt your way to the high score. We used Zespy's favorite gaming beverage, Cobra Verde, for inspiration, bittering the beer with green coffee beans, then adding fresh peach and tangerine puree while in the tanks. A complex but approachable sour, with notes of roasted jalapenos (without the heat), citrus rind (without the bitterness),and fresh fruit (without the seeds).
Cobra Nerde is a Wild Ale with Green Coffee, Peach and Tangerine at 6% ABV!"
