Brewing with fried chicken is now a very real thing

The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken

The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken debuts on July 25th. This new India pale ale is brewed with fried chicken. Yes… fried chicken.

Weeks ago, the brewing team from Richmond, Virginia’s The Veil Brewing collaborated with Evil Twin Brewing’s Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø. After overeating fried chicken at a nearby restaurant, the team decided to throw some fried chicken into the mash of this imperial IPA. NO, they weren’t the leftovers.

In the end, fried chicken only made it into one of the two brewing mashes for this release, making up less than .4% of the total weight. According to The Veil, the beer doesn’t taste anything like fried chicken. Dropping some chicken into the beer just seemed like a fun thing to do. (They already brew with cookies and candy.) Check out Jeppe throwing the chicken into the mash below.

Besides chicken, The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken features Citra, Simcoe, and Enigma hops. Subtitled a “Double Dry Hopped Old Country Double IPA.”  You remember the “old country” right? Back when chickens were chickens, and hops were hops. A much simpler time.

Those wanting to drink some fried chicken will have to be at The Veil Brewing early on July 25th. 16-ounce cans will be available when the brewery opens at 4 pm.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Fried Chicken)
Hops: Enigma, Citra, Simcoe
Availability: 16oz Cans

Chocolate chips & candy bars make The Veil Brewing Double Chocolate Hornswoggler

The Veil Brewing Double Chocolate Hornswoggler Milk Stout can

The Veil Brewing Double Chocolate Hornswoggler, the latest variant in the brewery’s highly sought after dessert beer series, debuts on June 20th.

French Vanilla, Coconut, Oreo Cookie, and Peanut Butter Oreos aren’t just tasty desserts. It describes the magically delicious lineup known as The Veil Brewing’s Hornswoggler. This release started as a smooth milk stout with chocolate. Since then, it’s gotten more and more eccentric. A bit like that guy and his chocolate factory.

Double Chocolate Hornswoggler has been aged on hundreds of pounds of milk chocolate, plus a random mix of actual candy bars. (Some bars containing nuts.) Thanks to the extra sugar transferred to the beer, keep this cold, and drink fresh. Don’t waste it by cellaring it.

Creamy, velvety, scrumdiddlyumptious chocolate river of a stout. 🤤=amirite?!

The Veil Brewing Double Chocolate Hornswoggler will be available in 16 ounce cans when the brewery opens on June 20th.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Chocolate Chips, Nuts, Candy Bars, Lactose)
Availability: 16oz Cans. Limited Release.
Debut: 6/20/17

Double dry hopped: The Veil Brewing Broz Broz Night Night

The Veil Brewing Broz Broz Night Night

The Veil Brewing Broz Broz Night Night debuts in cans on May 30th. This one is all about the dry-hop.

Broz Broz is the “brother” beer to Citra hop heavy Broz Night Out. The Veil opted to double dry-hop this edition, uping it what they call cray-cray status.

This one turned out insane. We love the base beer, but with the DDH treatment, it’s just cray cray.

The Veil Brewing Broz Broz Night Night will be available in all it’s hazy goodness when the brewery opens on May 30th.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra
Availability: 16oz Cans
Debut: 5/30/17
