Modist Brewing to Release World’s First (Probably) D&D Beer Wrapped in a D&D Adventure


We’ve teamed up with local singer/songwriter/heartthrob/Dungeon Master Jeremy Messersmith and the rest of the day-drinking/D&D-loving/creative brain trust that forms Unconventional Pleasures, to create a beer that comes wrapped (literally) with an original D&D campaign. It’s a low ABV IPA called Tabletop Session, debuting in the Modist taproom on Sunday, February 16th with cans hitting retail the next day, Monday, February 17th. 

The release party on February 16th will have TWO group gaming sessions at 1 pm & 4 pm. All you need to do is come to the brewery with a group of up to 5 over-21-ers, buy a four-pack, and we’ll lead you through the rest. We’ll have the group start and end the campaign together. The adventure is called “Search for the Elder Draft” and, spoiler, the host for these sessions is Jeremy Messersmith, who will probably use a funny voice or two. Also, Steak and Unicorns did the character art and it’s badass.

Our charity partner, ACLU MN, will be on hand to mix a little advocacy with your natural 20s. The suggested donation is $7 instead of an event cover charge. Beer. Role-playing. Bonus points for costumes. See you there!

For those hunting down the retail release to play at home, here’s how it works:

  1. Buy a 4 pack from one of the stores that will be listed here on the Monday of the release.
  2. Each can has a different character. Pick one.
  3. Pick one person to be the Game Master. They go to the website on the can. 
  4. Start playing.
