Excitement around the Tesla Cybertruck is amping up to giga proportions as rumors abound about the weirdly-shaped vehicle, which is seemingly going into full volume production in a matter of months. Further stoking the proverbial bonfire, news sources reported spotting a fleet of Tesla Cybertrucks at Gigafactory Texas.
The Cybertruck hype cycle is now in full gear. And yet it’s apparently the perfect moment for the Cybertruck maker to announce an entirely different flavor of cyber. Late last week, Tesla unveiled its CyberBeer + CyberStein Limited Edition Set, and – yes, it’s a total swing out of left field – but when you’re hungry for anything Cybertruck-related, relatively speaking, a new $150 collector’s item from Tesla is small fries. Especially when it potentially tastes great and quenches the thirst for good beer in addition to the thirst for a new electric vehicle shaped like Porygon.
Admittedly, the new CyberBeer + CyberStein Limited Edition set – which contains two bottles of CyberBeer and two CyberSteins to pour it in – looks like it’s straight out of Cyberpunk 2077 though it’s deliberately meant to mimic the style of the Cybertruck. Given the CyberBeer bottle’s black-and-white gloss color scheme, graffiti-style “CyberBeer” lettering and angled shape, it looks like it’d fit right in at a bar in Night City served next to a bottle of Pingo Pálido. In what appears to be a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor, the back of the beer bottle features the words “haha cheers” in a far more standard-looking typeface. Meanwhile, the included CyberStein looks a bit more like the actual Cybertruck model, thanks to its matte black appearance that actually features a miniature Tesla logo near the top.
Tesla describes the CyberBeer beverage itself as “a Helles Lager with European Noble Hops Saaz and Hallertau Mittlefruh. Accentuated by notes of herb and spice and more notable aromas of tea and citrus.” That all sounds delicious, but if you want to buy one of these for yourself, you’re out of luck; the limited edition set sold out almost immediately. It could come back in another wave, but at this point, you may be holding out just as long as you would for a new Cybertruck.
