    Stumbled across this on Facebook earlier. Apparently somebody's making three Mortal Kombat themed beers -- an imperial IPA, stout, and saison, all named after a character from the game series. (Don't think I've heard the phrase "imperial saison" before, but I suppose they're making "imperial/double" versions of pretty much everything now. XD)

    I'm thinking it's a hoax... and if it is a thing, they'll be horrid.

    Subzero should be an eisbock.
    Scorpion should be a chili stout.
    Johnny Cage should be an AAL.
    Kano should be a Russian Imperial Stout.
    Sonya should be a blonde ale.

    I read this and said "Finish him" out loud. Also, didn't care much for the Game of Thrones or Hobbit beers. Granted they are from different brewers, just seems when they try to endorse a show, game, etc. it's more for the publicity than the beer. We will shortly find out that Mortal Kombat is coming out with a 20 something anniversary game.

    You nailed it!
    "Scorpion Imperial Stout: A unique blend for great Imperial Stout brings both fire and ice into your glass. The fiery southwest chilies and cooling Madagascar Vanilla Bean pair nicely with the exotic notes produced by our own yeast strain."

    They need Fatality, one that clocks in at the 15-20% ABV range

    They're being made by Sound Brewing in Poulsbo WA. A pretty good brewery, these beers won't be horrid. Well, I think any stout with chili's has the potential to be horrid, but other than that they should be at least solid.

    A bit of discussion about these beers in this thread: http://www.beeradvocate.com/community/threads/mortal-combat-x-beers.421679/

    Agreed, the new Mortal Kombat is outstanding. It's the main reason I bought my PS4. Why it took them a year after the game's release to bring these brews out is beyond me.

    And Jax should be a Black IPA
    Liu Kang should be a Happoshu
    Goro should be a Quad
    Raiden should be a Japanese Rice Lager
    And Smoke should of course be a Rauchbier

    Wait, Raiden, a Japanese rice lager? Early on he wears a Vietnamese farming hat, but I don't know if he
    has a nationality per se. I think they should get Johnny Cage in there personally my favorite character.
    Night wolf porter would sound nice, since night, darkness and dark beer. You gotta have Baraka in their somewhere
    as well. They created a "monster" when they made these beers.

    Wow, these are all good ideas, especially the sonya as a blonde ale, haha. Kano's character is Australian I think.
    Not sure if there is an Australian style beer other than having a gigantic can of lager. Get OVER HERE...and while you're at it GET ME A BEER!!!
