About: Atlanta brewery Second Self Beer Company will release Triforce (6.1% ABV, 45 IBU), a slightly hazy IPA inspired by the iconic video game series “The Legend of Zelda,” next month. Brewed to embody the sacred relic’s three pieces: power, courage, and wisdom. Triforce is a slightly hazy IPA brewed with the triforce of malts (oats, wheat and barley) and hops (Mosaic, Amarillo, and Cascade). These combine to create a unique IPA that has the aroma and flavor of papaya, mango, and other tropical fruits; with a soft, flavorful mouthfeel to balance this truly inspired beer. Suggested pairings for the beer include tacos, barbecue, fresh vegetables, ceviche, fromage blanc, and magical potions. The graphic label plays on the classic game and was designed by artist Keith P. Rein, who also created the popular artwork for Second Self’s limited-edition beer: Manic Pixie Dream Beer #1.To celebrate Triforce’s release, Second Self will be challenging friends to a Hyrule-inspired scavenger hunt around Atlanta. Participants will search the city for items from the classic game at participating bars and restaurants, and winners who collect each one will win different prizes at the brewery’s taproom located in West Midtown. To kick off the scavenger hunt, Second Self will host a release party on January 13th with Zelda games, a costume contest, Triforce-tacos from Real Mexican Vittles, and clues for the scavenger hunt. Guests in costume for the release will receive a free pint of new beer. The winner of the hunt will go home with an awesome prize pack. Second Self has also organized a quest around Atlanta, and fans are encouraged to find missing items at select bars, restaurants, and stores to win free merch and beer. The map and compass required for participation can be picked up during the release party.
