The weird food and booze trend has been pushed so far, we aren’t even surprised anymore.
With that said, we welcome the addition of fried chicken beer with open arms.
The Veil Brewing Company out of Richmond, Virginia, teamed up with Evil Twin Brewing in New York to create the Fried Fried Chicken Chicken beer, which contains a small amount of real fried chicken, because fried chicken is a national treasure.
On the company’s Facebook page, it described the very mundane reason the company decided to put fried chicken in its beer.
“The idea came to us after eating a significant amount of fried chicken at various establishments in our beautiful city of Richmond,” the company wrote.
At 8 percent alcohol by volume, the double dry hopped IPA-style brew contains only a trace amount of chicken, and apparently, doesn’t taste like chicken at all.
“It doesn’t even remotely taste like chicken,” the brewery wrote on Facebook. “If you think it does, you might want to go to the doctor bucko!”
The brewery is producing a limited quantity, though CNET notes the beer was available on draft at Veil’s taproom in Richmond on Sunday.
