3 Floyds is a small brewery in Indiana that has a dark supernatural fantasy theme to its beer labels. One of their most popular brews, and my favorite of their awesome labels, is Zombie Dust. I managed to try Zombie Dust on a recent trip to Indiana and it is very tasty, with huge hops for a pale ale. 3 Floyds mostly only distributes locally. Zombie Dust rates a 100 world-class score on Beer Advocate.
The Zombie Dust label was created by comic book artist Tim Seeley. He is known for his work on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, G.I. Joe vs. Transformers and New Exiles. He is also the co-creator of the Image Comics titles Hack/Slash and Revival.
The Zombie Dust label features a crowned zombie warrior wielding a giant hammer. He strikes an imposing figure with a ragged red cape, armor, and an angry scowl on his skull face. This zombie king has a spider emblem across his armored chest. He’s clearly a bad ass. Zombie Dust is spelled out in an appropriately creepy font. My question is: what is this dust? Is it a magical powder that reanimates corpses? Do they add this dust to the beer to give it some special flavor? Maybe its best I don’t know.
