Beer Release and Octopus Tree Launch Party Scheduled for June 5

Eden Prairie, Minnesota – May 31, 2016 – Octopus Tree, a new publisher focused on bringing exceptional indie titles to gamers worldwide, announced today that it has collaborated with award-winning Minneapolis brewery Dangerous Man Brewing Co. for a new beer based on Octopus Tree’s recently released action RPG, Goliath. The beer, “Goliath Experimental Double IPA,” will be released exclusively in bottles and on tap during a party to celebrate Octopus Tree’s launch titles to be held at the Dangerous Man Brewing Co. taproom on Sunday, June 5.

“We are thrilled to be working with Dangerous Man on the Goliath beer and our launch party,” said Jeremy Zoss, Marketing Manager for Octopus Tree. “Dangerous Man shares our mentality of independence and creativity, and our partnership has been a delight from start to finish. And as huge fans of craft beer, we know that Dangerous Man consistently makes some of the best beers in all of Minnesota.”

Goliath Experimental Double IPA Tasting Notes

The Goliath Experimental Double IPA was crafted to mimic key features of the Goliath video game, which encourages players to experiment with their gameplay style in order to build new and more powerful giant robots. Goliath Experimental Double IPA was brewed with new several hop varietals to create a big, bold flavor, including Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic hops, as well as Dangerous Man’s first-ever usage of the new TNT hop.

  • Appearance: Rich gold, bordering on copper.
  • Aroma: Rich tropical overtones followed by stone fruits and finishing notes of citrus.
  • Flavor: Dominant notes of tropical fruit, with currents of stone fruits and citrus. The sturdy malt backbone provides a delicate counterpoint to the massive hop-forward presentation, which is both bracing and smooth.

Launch Party and Beer Release

The Dangerous Man Brewing Co. taproom will host a launch party for Octopus Tree on Sunday, June 5 from noon – 8 pm.During the party, which is open to the public, visitors will be able to purchase bottles of Goliath Experimental Double IPA from the Dangerous Man Growler Shop or experience on tap inside the taproom. Visitors will also be able to play Octopus Tree’s first three games, the recently released Goliath and Robot Arena III, as well as the upcoming Buildanauts. The Dangerous Man Brewing Co. taproom is located at:  1300 NE 2nd St, Minneapolis, MN 55413

Available now on Steam, Goliath is an open-world, action-adventure game with crafting and role-playing elements set in a universe where players build and customize massive robots to overcome the challenges they face.

Goliath brings players to a world where massive monsters roam freely. To survive, players must scavenge for resources and materials to create powerful giant robots called Goliaths. Goliaths can be customized and outfitted with weapons for various situations and battle preferences. Players can also create items and tools for survival, build a fortress and find new allies, and choose which factions to support in the war that is sweeping across the world.

Robot Arena III

Available now in Early Access on Steam, Robot Arena III players will design and build robots with an extremely intricate and realistic bot creation system. Players can then enter their robot creations into arena combat to see which bot rules the day. Robot Arena III features updated physics and graphics that make it the most realistic and advanced robot combat simulation game.

Coming this June to Steam, players take the role of the foreman, the city planner, and the mayor of the town of their dreams. Buildanauts lets players plan their town and bring it to life with the help of their construction crew using a fleet of heavy vehicles and a variety of construction tools to place city props, lay down roads and much more. Buildanites, the town’s residents, are attracted by a well-kept town and will move out at the first sign of neglect.

Goliath and Robot Arena III are now available on Steam.
