Breckenridge Brewery and DCC Press Release

So, every year, Breckenridge Brewery (a major sponsor for Denver Comic Con) brews a special beer for the convention. And every year they open up a contest to name that beer. This year, it's one of my favorite styles: a Bohemian Pilsener!

Here's the official press release for you:

WHAT: The annual “Name the Denver Comic Con Beer” contest starts today, March 21. This is the sixth year Breckenridge Brewery has brewed a special beer exclusive for Denver Comic Con (DCC). The 2017 DCC official beer is a Bohemian-style Pilsner. It’s delicate and well-balanced, light yet complex. Saaz hops, a classic pilsner ingredient, impart a pleasant, earthy aroma while giving spicy flavor characteristics and a crisp, dry finish.
