The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler teaser

The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler returns to the Richmond, Virginia based brewery’s lineup again on August 8th.

This foray into dessert beer started with the base creation Hornswoggler, a silky, chocolate milk stout. Since then, releases have gotten more and more decadent. French Vanilla, Oreo Cookie, and Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter Oreos, even one with candy bars have graced the series. August 8th marks the return of  a more tropical (think Mounds candy bar) creation – The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler.

Coconut Hornswoggler is our house 7% robust chocolate milk stout Hornswoggler conditioned on hundreds and hundreds of pounds of coconut. 😬 Straight up insane! Tastes/smells like a liquid Mounds bar.

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
