(Halifax, NS) - Garrison Brewing releases “Hipster Viking” Atlantic IPA tomorrow, October 26th. This collaboration is from four breweries spanning three nations featuring original label artwork by award-winning and internationally recognized comic book artist Ben Bishop. The breweries included Mason’s Brewing (Brewer, Maine), Lone Pine Brewing (Portland, Maine), Gæðingur Öl Brugghús (Skagafirði, Iceland) and Garrison Brewing (Halifax, Nova Scotia).   
“We’ve often collaborated with brewery buds locally and nationally, but this time we got to go cross border” said Brian Titus, President of Garrison Brewing. “We’ve wanted to work with Chris from Mason’s for awhile and we knew Arni from Gæðingur was coming to Halifax. Throw in Tom from Lone Pine & there you have it – world peace through craft beer!”.  
Releasing just in time for Hal-Con, Atlantic Canada’s largest Sci-Fi convention “Hipster Viking” is an unfiltered Atlantic IPA at 6% ABV. The beer is hazy and golden in the New England style, with a dank, tropical aroma and flavour. The brew profiles new-age hops Mosaic, Ekuanot and Idaho 7. Hipster Viking releases Friday at both Garrison Brewing and Hal-Con, and next week at private liquor stores.
