Richmond Brewery Makes A Beer Out Of Fried Chicken, Because Why Not?

You name a food and it’s been used in a beer. Ghost peppers, yeast from beards, rocky mountain oysters, belly button lint, etc. Way down on that list is fried chicken, the “secret ingredient” to a collaboration between The Veil Brewing Co. and Evil Twin Brewing. It’s called “Fried Fried Chicken Chicken” and it’s a DIPA, clocking in at 8% ABV. The mash itself is includes a general heap of fried chicken from restaurants around their hometown of Richmond, Virginia:

This Tuesday July 25th will be the debut of Fried Fried Chicken Chicken! 🍗🍗🐓🐓 Fried Fried Chicken Chicken is our latest collabo with our good friendz @eviltwinbrewing. Clocking in at 8%, FFCC is a DDH Old Country DIPA hopped v heavily with Citra, Simcoe, and Enigma. The idea came to us after eating a significant amount of fried chicken at various establishments in our beautiful city of Richmond. We actually put a VERY small amount of Fried Chicken in one of two of the mashes(less than .4% of the total weight of the mash contents). 🙈 It doesn’t even remotely taste like chicken. If you think it does, you might want to go to the doctor bucko! We are super super pumped how this one turned out. Shoot for approx 215-240 cases. $18.50+tax/4-pack. 3x 4-packs per person. *LIMITS SUBJECT TO CHANGE*

Little disappointing that it doesn’t actually taste like chicken, but whatever. Not sure I’d want Iceland’s sheep shit-smoked whale testicle beer to taste like how I imagine those things to taste either.
