Harry Potter Porter of the Phoenix

Any Potter fan who’s made it through the first five years of Hogwarts – either through the pages or the big screen – knows that the 5th in the 7-book/movie series is titled “Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix,” so the play on words here is pretty cool. Unfortunately, this one’s just a concept, but who knows? Maybe someday. Check out the other six hypothetical Harry labels here.

3. Truffle Shuffle Stout

The Goonies Truffle Shuffle Stout

Back in May of 2010, Astoria Brewing Company and Fort George brewery brewed the Truffle Shuffle Stout to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the cult classic, The Goonies. The beer was brewed using ground black truffle mushrooms, lots of specialty malts, and plenty of Goonies one-liners. It was a one weekend deal, so if you missed out, you missed out.

4. Hoptimus Prime

Ruckus Brewing put this Transformers-themed, double IPA together using five different hop varieties, three different types of malts, and a two week dry hopping process. Needless to say, Hoptimus Prime has a HUGE amount of hop flavor and aroma.

Brewed in a brewery not too far away and not too long ago, this Star Wars-themed Russian Imperial Stout has strong flavors of chocolate and coffee, ringing in at 8.5% ABV.
