There are a lot of questions to be asked about Breaking Bad‘s final eight episodes — Will Jesse get caught? Will Walt die? Will anyone eat at Pollo Loco again? — but if you’re questioning what brew to bring to your Breaking Bad viewing party, look no further than Heisenberg’s Dark, Breaking Bad’s very own beer.

According to Breaking Bad Location’s Instagram feed, the Albuquerque-based Marble Brewery — which is occasionally used as a location on the show — will be making an India Pale Ale-style beer called “Heisenberg’s Dark” to commemorate Breaking Bad’s final season. To be clear: It’s highly unlikely that the ale contains meth, opting instead for a classic, legal hops base. The Breaking Bad-branded beer is yet another in a series of television show crossover quaffs, including Game Of Thrones’ Ommegang’s Iron Throne Ale, The Simpsons Duff Beer, and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s collaboration with California’s Stone Brewing Co. We still have to wait for an Arrested Development ale, The Good Wife lager or The Bachelorette brew.

Currently Marble Brewery has no plans to sell the beer outside of Albuquerque, so if you want to sample Heisenberg’s Dark, you will have to head to New Mexico. That said, one thing we’ve learned from watching five seasons of Breaking Bad is that if there is enough demand for a product, distribution channels can expand.

Breaking Bad season 5 is set to return with its final eight episodes on July 14th.

You've had 3 weeks to fix the mistakes in this article that multiple people pointed out on the day it was published, and still nothing?


I have an idea for Walt and Jesse. Why not have Walt write his story about everything that happened and let Pollo and others who are a threat know that if he is killed by any other means except "Cancer" this detailed letter will be given to DEA.

I signed up for a time.com account just to say how very disappointed I am with this article.  As two readers have pointed out, not only did you list the wrong restaurant name, but you were WAY off on the date the show will return.  I remember when reputable sources would actually have to check (even double-check) things before an article is published.  This is just horrible. How can I trust anything else on your site if you can't even get the show's return date correct - and it's not like a typo as July 14 is so very far away on the keyboard from August 11. Horrible.

This article is also an example on how bad writers are these days.  El Pollo Loco is an actual chain in Cali, Los Pollos Hermanos is the chain in the show.

July 14th? Why would you even get my hopes up like that? I would think with a name like TIME you guys would get the time right

Umm....the show returns Aug 11th, its on AMCs website


i got a better name: Heisenburg's Principle Ale. (as in the only ale he drinks)

season finale: he attends Burning Man and is gobsmacked with the economic metrics of a certain psychedelic.

he then sets about unwittingly changing society.
