In post-apocalyptic role-playing games Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, Nuka-Cola & Nuka-Cola Quantum were drinkable items for your character which would increase your Action Points and your radiation for a short period of time, and if mixed correctly could become a great weapon. This drink, which is found all over the Wasteland is recognized by its icy blue color. But this fictional drink, is making its way onto store shelves this fall in preparation for the release of Fallout4, and unlike its fictional counterpart, it hopefully won’t make your pee glow.

At 3.pm. October 29th, the official Fallout Twitter account announced that a “real-life” Nuka-Cola Quantum would be available starting November 10 exclusively at U.S. Target Stores. This will kick off the day-of release of Bethesda’s hugely anticipated multiplatform game Fallout 4. Currently there is no mention of price and when asked about quantities, their only response is that they will be available will supplies last. This partnership with Jones Soda could make this launch a bigger success than the BTTF Pepsi Launch- yeah I’m sure you were thinking of that recent fiasco. Jones Soda’s Nuka-Cola Quantum drink isn’t a unique production made especially for this promotion. When asked, the company did let fans know that it is a repackaged version of Jones Soda’s existing berry lemonade flavor.
Of course this isn’t the only Fallout-based beverage in the works, Carlsberg is currently producing Fallout Beer, which will be exclusively sold in the U.K. on Nov. 5. A 12-case of the Fallout Beer is available for preorder right now on Amazon for £29.99, and according to Amazon, it cannot be delivered to the US. The beer goes on sale November 5, five days before Fallout 4 arrives.
Fallout Beer, is a light-colored pilsner lager is set to offer a “refreshing zesty hoppy taste and a floral aroma.” It was brewed using a blend of malted barleys and “selected hops,” Carlsberg said.
The packaging is quite snazzy. The label depicts nuclear explosion and a mass of people heading into a vault. A line on the bottle reads: “Inspired by Vault-Tec Industries.” Don’t expect this beer to blow you away in a nuclear blast of booziness, as its alcohol by volume percentage is only 4 percent, which is equivalent to that in a Bud Light.
