Mispillion River Brewing to Release Harry Potter Inspired Beers
Harry Potter lovers rejoice.
Starting at noon, attendees will have the opportunity to be sorted into their Hogwarts’ house and try each house’s signature brew. Gryffindor will be represented by a 9% ABV Double IPA, Hufflepuff by a 6% ABV Kolsch, Ravenclaw by a 5.2% ABV Porter, and Slytherin by a Dry-hopped American Sour. Deathly Hallows, the brewery’s small batch Belgian Trippel, will be making its yearly return. Additionally, brewers have concocted a non-alcoholic butter beer.
“The event was inspired by our brewer who is a huge Harry Potter fan,” Lauren Bigelow, ‘Sales & Marketing Ninja’ says. ” He has been brewing Harry Potter themed beers since we opened three years ago.”
Entertainment throughout the event includes a scavenger hunt for horcruxes, beer quidditch, and a photo booth. A trolley witch will be vending Bertie’s Botts throughout the day. Attendees are invited to wear their best costumes, but the brewery is asking that people use their wands only for good. Anyone caught using the Unforgiveable Curses (Cruciatus, Imperius, or Killing curses) will be asked to leave.
El Presidente, Eric Williams, stated, “I’ve never watched Harry Potter, but my employees are really into it.”
According to Bigelow, Mispillion wanted to have something for the Harry Potter lover and the beer lover, alike.
“We wanted to make sure to appeal to both of our biggest possible audiences for this event.”
The event is free to attend. Commemorative pint glasses with the Hogwarts’ house logos will be available while supplies last. As with all Mispillion events, the Brewery is asking that people bring a canned donation for the Food Bank of Delaware.
