Elysian Brewing has announced the launch of its newest seasonal release, Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer, a pumpkin witbier.
The classic west coast brewery teamed up with USA Network and SYFY for this movie/brew crossover about the killer doll.
Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is 5.3% ABV. Saturated with blood-red cranberry juice and entangled with pumpkin mangled into a puree, the beer is light in color with flavors of chamomile and cinnamon, the company reports.
“Just like Chucky is synonymous with Halloween, Elysian’s pumpkin beers have become synonymous with the season. Seeing Chucky’s iconic, freckled face on our cans feels like a match made in . . . ah . . . hell,” says Joe Bisacca, Elysian Brewing’s Co-Founder. “This release is exactly what makes brewing pumpkin beers interesting. You can iterate with so many styles using the same common gourd ingredient, like we do with the beers in Elysian’s Pumpkin Variety Pack. Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is super drinkable and light, we think that it’ll be enjoyed by a wide variety of palates. From the blood-red cranberry to the cinnamon notes, this limited-edition wit encapsulates many of the fall flavors our drinkers love.”
Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is a limited release brewed before the launch of Season 2 of “Chucky,” a continuation of the film franchise chronicling the murderous escapades of the killer doll. “Chucky” Season 2 premiers on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 9 p.m. ET on USA Network & SYFY.
Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is available now at bars and retailers throughout the country.The post Elysian Brewing Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer first appeared on Beverage Dynamics.
