It doesn’t get much more Duluth-y thank this: a new ale linked with water positivity. Hoops Brewing is releasing Lake Superior Aquaman Ale — described by the titular sea-character as “a dank hemp ale” — during a Clean Water Awareness Event from 5-7 p.m. Thursday at the Canal Park-based brewery.

Lake Superior Aquaman, Jim Richardson’s underwater alter ego, is a free diving photographer who captures images below the surface of Lake Superior.

“My Aquaman persona and my cartoons share the goal of mythologizing Duluth and Lake Superior,” he said in an email.

Brewer Dave Hoops and Richardson worked together to create the new ale.
