Bethesda Has Fallout-Themed Rum Coming
It looks like more Fallout-themed beer is on the way. Bethesda owner ZeniMax recently filed a trademark application for "Nuka Dark," which is the in-game drink introduced to the Fallout universe in Fallout 4's Nuka-World expansion. The trademark, filed on August 15 with the United States Patent & Trademark Office, covers all manner of boozy items. The Goods & Services line of the application covers, "liquor; bourbon; spirits; wine; beer, ale, lager, stout; beverages containing alcohol; whisky, vodka, gin, rum; liqueurs; aperitifs; digestives." [Update: It's actually a rum, which is on the way courtesy of Silver Screen Bottling Co.]
As the Fallout Wikia explains, Nuka-Cola Dark is an alcoholic version of Nuka-Cola. It is really strong, carrying a 35 percent (!!!!) ABV in the game.
In 2015, Bethesda partnered with beer giant Carlsberg for Fallout 4-inspired beer that was simply called "Fallout Beer." Beer company Sam Adams recently launched a new beer called Sam '76, and it would be a real shame if Bethesda doesn't partner with the company for a Fallout 76 beer.
The next big Fallout game is November's Fallout 76 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Unlike past games in the series, Fallout 76 is an always-online, multiplayer focused game. It launches in November, but you'll be able to play starting in October through its beta that starts first on Xbox One. In other news, Microsoft announced an Xbox One X bundle featuring the game this week at Gamescom 2018.
