4 Hands Brewery x Apotheosis Comics and Lounge

Not all heroes wear capes, but all beers have labels — and 4 Hands Brewing Company (1220 S 8th Street, 314-436-1559) just gave their State Wide hazy pale ale a makeover in celebration of Free Comic Book Day.

The label plays on the theme of comic books and superheroes. Free Comic Book Day, which happens May 7, offers up — you guessed it — free comics in order to bring in new customers to stores and raise money for St. Louis Public Libraries. 4 Hands Brewing is getting in on the unofficial holiday by offering up their ale in partnership with Apotheosis Comics and Lounge and donating a percentage of sales to the libraries, as well.

"We're so excited to partner with 4 Hands on this year’s State Wide fundraising effort," Martin Casas, owner of Apotheosis Comics & Lounge says in a statement. "Raising money for library systems in the state helps true heroes in our community - librarians who provide a vital role of giving families access to education and a world beyond their imagination. As comic book shops, we're in the same business."
