As part of this delicious Saturday Morning Cartoons series breakfast, this brew is based on the Spooky Boo Berry cereal. This is the second time I try a beer in their Saturday Morning Cartoon breakfast cereal series. The first one being the damn awesome Fruity Pebbles inspired one. They make many others but this one is one I had to find for the season. Yes it is Christmas time but it is never too late to celebrate Halloween. Especially since it was also done with The Nightmare Before Christmas. Blueberries are awesome and just the fact that this one brought me back to the times when they release the special Halloween cereals once a year, I had to get it. Just like the young be buying a box of Boo Berries, well, my parents did. There is a Count Chocula cereal beer made by another brewery but I have yet to find it. I wonder if they make Franken Berries too. Anyways, let’s take a dive into this one, cheers!

Overall:
An exceptional brew. Not because of its special aging but because it got it damn right. This is literally going back to the your waking up during Halloween Saturday mornings and eating some Boo Berries while watching the Halloween cartoon specials on TV. I have had many delicious blueberry stouts and I can say that those are similar to this one or even better but in this case, the appreciation to the blueberry cereal taste is what really drives this one home for sure. I highly recommend you get this one for nostalgia purposes.

Anime Corner:
Hex Maniac from the Pokemon series is a trainer that is mainly into the occult. I chose her be cause she pairs very well with the colors, flavors, ingredients and the theme of the beer. The Scary Boo Berries. Also the fact that Pokemon is a Saturday morning cartoon from my youth and into today, it counts with the Saturday morning cartoon series. Also, the little ghost cereal pieces that look like the Pacman ghosts go well with the ghosties in the pictures too!

Extremely limited and obtained at the local Ramirez Liquors in Boyle Heights for a limited time only. This brew was a must have when I saw it. I screamed everything childhoods were about. Waking up early in the morning to watch those episodes of Thundercats, Voltron, Ninja Turtles, Mazinger Z, Looney Toons, Sonic the Hedgehog, Ronin Warriors and many many more shows. It was an awesome time with no worries, no responsibilities. It was you and your favorite characters. Damn… While this is very reminiscent, I can only hope the beer is just as good as the nostalgia. Cheers!

What can I say but pure Kid’s cereal Bliss. The kind of stuff I grew up with watching those Saturday morning cartoons all those years ago. I wish I know how they got so many different fruit flavors into a simple milk stout. Well, not simple at all, I say that only due to the ABV but this is pretty crazy complex and super fruity stuff. It is not like cloying by any means but definitely fruit and complex. I think for people that remember growing up with the Saturday morning cartoons will sit back, relax and watch reruns of their favorites while sipping this. Brew Rebellion keeps nailing it with this crazy delicious flavor forward beers. I highly recommend this one. Cheers!

“Pretty much every cartoon that made growing up in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s awesome up to the present” was used in this pairing for many reasons. Highlight many of the most popular shows that were my favorite shows from the most obscure ones to the most popular ones. This beer is a staple in artistic nostalgia paying tribute not only to childhoods everywhere but also to the future inspiration of this site. I grew up watching cartoons and anime all the way from the earliest I can remember since I was 3 years old. They inspired my perspective and appreciation for different kinds of artworks and shows. Now as an adult, this is the tribute here. I took so many pics cuz I knew just about any cartoon would fit especially of the times. Thank you childhood!
