From The Examiner:
Breckenridge Brewery announces their special con beer for Denver Comic Con 2016. In honor of actor Alan Richman who recently lost his battle with cancer, the tasty new brew is called "Snape-ricot" after his beloved character of Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films. According to Denver Comic Con director Christina Angel, "this year’s brew takes on a special significance as a tribute to Alan Rickman, who so masterfully brought Snape to life on the silver screen.” Since the first convention in 2012, this Denver area brewery has teamed up with Denver Comic Con to bring a special beer for the occasion.
The "Name the Comic Con Beer" contest was won by Noah Eisenman and Greg Nuccio, and this refreshingly crisp apricot lager will make its first appearance this week. This beer release party will be held at Stoney's Bar and Grill on Friday, May 20, at 7:30 PM.
