If you love beer as much as you love Breaking Bad then you’re in for a treat. Dean J Norris, who plays the role of our beloved Uncle Hank, has teamed up with Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. to make the DEA agent’s home-brewed Schraderbräu beer a reality. Norris has been very enthusiastic about the project, heading to Twitter and Instagram to promote his new brew. Fans of the legendary meth-cooking series will recall that Hank Schrader brewed his own German-style lager, made a six pack and even slapped on a logo with his own face on it. Now, that very logo will become the face of a Schraderbräu beer you can buy soon.

In an interview, the actor said that the idea traces back “a long time ago” and it was Breaking Bad‘s 10-year anniversary which finally pushed him into starting the project: “It took a long time to find the right brewery,” he said. “I knew if I put out a beer, it’s gonna get a lot of scrutiny — I don’t want people going, ‘Ah this is crap.’ We finally got one that made a really fantastic beer.”

In another interview, Norris spoke of how he chose the flavor and feel of the beer: “The show gave us some great hints as to what Schraderbräu should actually be,” Norris commented. “Obviously the name lends itself to a German lager, and we wanted the ABV and flavor profile to reflect Hank’s persona on the show.”

With an ABV of 6.3%, Schraderbräu beer will be available in the US come late May online and at select retailers shortly after.
