I've been a fan of Marvel's Thor
for just about as long as I can remember.
As a kid who gorged himself on mythology, finding out there was a superhero who was also a mythological god was about the coolest thing ever.
Any time I've ever been asked who I would put on a super team, Thor always makes the list. A god who controls the weather with a nigh-indestructible magical weapon? I'll make that dude the anchor of my team every time.
That being said, finding Thor merchandise I wanted to wear has always been a challenge. Too many "Hammer Time" puns. Too many winged hats. In short, nothing majestic enough for the God of Thunder.
That's why I was so excited when the fine folk at SuperheroStuff.com sent me their Mjolnir Brewing Company shirt
This shirt is simply awesome.
Black with a "nightwing" blue
image of the traditional Hammer of Thor, the shirt advertises for a drink worthy of Valhalla.
I decided to give my new shirt a test drive in the only way that was proper here in Austin. I wore it to a local brewery before taking in a double feature of Solo
and Deadpool 2
The shirt got noticed.
The local beer-ficianados were trying to figure out how they hadn't heard of this brewery. They were trying to figure out how I'd out-hipstered them. A couple were even trying to figure out where Asgard, Texas was.
Black t-shirts are a risky proposition in the summertime Texas heat. Mjolnir was no exception. It held in the heat. That was an assumed risk, but also a fair warning. You're gonna sweat in this bad boy.
Nobody confused me for Chris Hemsworth, but the shirt definitely go me noticed on a day out drinking beer and watching geek flicks.
And really, when you get right down to it, that's what we wear the t-shirts for.
The Mjolnir Brewing Company t-shirt is available for purchase now from our good friends at SuperheroStuff.com.
Verily, you should pick one up.
