Top 6 Star Wars Themed Beer Cans

The Star Wars world stretches far and wide and seems to have infiltrated every possible commercial industry - and craft beer is no exception. Plenty of beer geeks out there have a love of the sci-fi series and apparently more than a few brewers do too. Here are our Top 6 Star Wars Themed Craft Beer Cans! Cheers!

A very appropriate name for this style of brew. Something Brewing's Dark Side is a 5% schwarzbier brewed with plenty of German noble hops for a crisp, smooth finish to go with plenty of rich, roasty malty flavors. Put down that light, boring beer and come to the dark side. 

Call it a coincidence or a clever naming convention, Wyoming's Snake River Brewer Company gave their English-style Brown Ale a name that resonates with Star Wars fans everywhere. OB-1 or "organic beer number one" is made with 100% organic malt and hops so nothing nasty can get in the way of this beer's force (which is 4.9%).



New Zealand's Garage Project has been absolutely killing it for the last few years. Their beers represent the totally sought after intersection of incredible quality and amazing package art and design. Lack of Faith is a 7.5% Black IPA that was originally brewed for a Star Wars event at Golding's Free Dive - a craft beer bar in the brewery's hometown of Wellington. The name comes from a quote from Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode IV in which he tells admiral Motti that he "finds his lack of faith disturbing" and then promptly uses the force to choke him.

How perfect of a name is Vader for a Cascadian Dark Ale (a.k.a. Black IPA)? Oregon's Gilgamesh Brewing had originally been bottling this 6.4% black beauty before moving to cans earlier this year. To add some additional flavor to this beer, the brewery ages it on lightly roasted coffee beens from local roasters, The Governor's Cup.  (Image: Instagram @brewsterson49th)

 


You've got to love the design on this one. Two Australian brewers - Australian Brewing Company and Feral Brewing - got together to brew Storm Trooper Imperial Pilsner. This collaborative brew weighs in at 8.1% and was first released, very appropriately, on May the 4th. (Image: Instagram @the_oz_man_cave)


Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper raise a toast (to the darkside most likely)


Ahh, yes, how could we possibly pick another beer. Remember the ruckus that surrounded New England Brewing Company's original bottle release of Imperial Stout Trooper? Apparently the folks in the Lucas camp felt that the label design was just a tad bit too close to an actual piece of Lucas-owned intellectual property. Being the good sports they are, New England Brewing made a few adjustments to the design and everything was right as rain. As for the beer, this rich, dark, strong stout hasn't changed and is still an incredible treat if you can get your hands on it. Coming next month, it will be available in cans for the first time. Awesome.
