WASHINGTON — “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” movies are rated PG-13 for kids. But they’ve inspired a line of beer expected to be available this week.
The officially licensed Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema Hobbit beer comes compliments of the Fish Brewing Company of Olympia, Washington. Here’s a sample of what’s on tap:
The Hobbit beer labels include elfish writing, tales of the depicted characters and a UPC bar showing in silhouette a line of dwarves and a hobbit following the Wizard Gandolf.
Similar to other craft beers, the Hobbit line packs a punch. All varieties are 9.5 percent alcohol by volume and come only in 22-ounce bottles.
The next Hobbit movie, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” has a release date of Dec. 17, 2014.
