The Peach State has become a second home for Marvel, which does much of its filming at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta. Pinewood’s credits include the latest “Avengers: Endgame” along with at least six other Marvel films.

Georgia beer fans got a little surprise in one of the latest trailers for Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” that dropped this week: Thor was spotted sipping a Creature Comforts’ Athena Berliner weisse.

In a package of clips and trailers that dropped Tuesday, April 2, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is pictured sipping Athena while talking with Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at about the five-second mark.

Athens-based Creature Comforts confirmed Tuesday that it was Athena in the clip.

“Athena is a tribute to our home that shares a name with the Greek embodiment of wisdom and curiosity,” states Creature Comforts’ description online. “Given our affinity to the peculiar and curious, we think Athena is a perfect ambassador for the classic city.”

Thor’s character in the Marvel movies is based on the Norse god connected to thunder, lightning and strength.
