    Hi folk,

    Saturday, May 4th is "Star Wars Day." Seemed like there were quite a few Star Wars themed beers in circulation at one time, but I can't think of any offhand that I've come across recently. Raise a glass for Peter Mayhew! What beers from a galaxy far, far away are you drinking?

    New England Brewing's Imperial Stout Trooper is a solid favorite!
    (BA photo has the pre-cease-and-desist-letter label...)

    I believe they released a special barrel-aged version today. Might have to stop at the brewery next time I'm in town.

    It's the only movie I can think of in which a beer keg is a supporting character!

    O Connor Brewing (Norfolk) looks to be putting out/put out Jabba Juice NEIPA. T Shirt is Jabba crushing a beer doing the peace sign.

    While reading some of these titles to my 13 year old Star Wars fan son, he asked why there wasn't a beer called "A New Hop".

    I thought I had missed the heyday of Star Wars themed beers, but the comments on this thread have me thinking I'm just not looking hard enough.

    J. Wakefield in Miami makes a bunch of Star Wars-themed beers, like "Han Shot First."

    One of those things just doesn't belong there. Looking at that flying Winnebago....

    Just traded for a beer called Yub Nub that looks like a tip of the hat to the Ewoks.
