Video game nerds (like us) know where that comes from.

Second Self Beer Company must be fans of old-school Nintendo as well. Which is why they’re releasing Triforce. A slightly hazy IPA inspired by “The Legend of Zelda” video game from our childhood, it’s slightly hazy and brewed with a “Triforce” (see what they did there) of malts (oats, wheat, and barley) and hops (Mosaic, Amarillo, and Cascade). According to Second Self brewers, 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 celebrate Triforce’s release, Second Self will challenge the public 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 West Midtown taproom.

If you want to get your hands on some Triforce, Second Self is hosting a release party on Saturday, January 13th with Zelda games, a costume contest, Triforce-tacos from Real Mexican Vittles, and clues for the scavenger hunt. 

Starting in February, look for it on draft at Second Self’s taproom, and at bars and restaurants throughout Georgia and Alabama.
