When injustice, fear, and bad beer run rampant through the streets, there's only one hero mighty enough to save us: the Defender, sworn protector of taste buds and beer taps everywhere. In honor of our hoppy hero, we're throwing a launch party for our new Defender IPA in the Brooklyn Brewery Tasting Room on September 14th starting at 8PM.

Your first bottle of Defender is on us, and as if a free beer wasn't reason enough to swing by the night will also include such highlights as:

+A cosplay contest for free Brooklyn swag and bragging rights
+A contest for best superhero Instagram story, with photo stations and plenty of props to help you achieve your artistic vision and Brooklyn prize packs for the victors
+Take a photo with the Defender himself and awe your friends and Instagram followers alike
+Defender pint glass giveaways
+Free pizza courtesy of the fine folks at Sizzle Pie (while delicious supplies last)
+A coaster decorating station

The new Defender IPA is a fruity, dry, and heroically hoppy golden IPA that pairs well with barbecue, justice, and the American way.  It's the perfect beer for a long night of celebrating or crime-fighting alike. Free tickets will be available soon, so start making plans to swing by, geek out, and join us in our neverending quest to #DefendBeer.
