Perdue Launches Questionable Beer Flavor for Summer Grilling Season

Perdue is spicing things up this summer, with a standout new brew that is just perfect for grilling season.

The iconic chicken brand is launching its brand new PERDUE Beer Can Chicken Beer, a first-of-its-kind brew specially crafted to make the ultimate beer can chicken.

Created in partnership with Torch & Crown Brewing Company, the new honey double-citrus summer ale is brewed with classic grilled chicken seasonings like rosemary, thyme and pink peppercorn—an unbeatable combination to help backyard grillers prepare the perfect beer can chicken.

The brand's custom Beer Can Chicken Beer is tangy and juicy, with just an added hint of sweetness. But it's not just for grilling, as you can also sip on this tasty ale all summer long—just be sure to save some for your chicken!

"Beer can chicken has long been one of the most popular methods of grilling poultry, but we noticed a lack of consensus on what type of beer is best," said Julie Lehman, Perdue Vice President of Marketing in a press release. "As the fresh chicken experts, we worked with our friends at Torch & Crown Brewing Company to settle the debate for once and all and make a beer that is expertly crafted to help backyard cooking enthusiasts prepare the ultimate beer can chicken – always with a fresh, whole PERDUE® chicken – with maximum flavor each and every time."

Perdue's recipe for this tasty grilling style involves pouring a directed amount of beer into a food-grade roasting stand, and then standing a chicken upright and cooking it using a grill or smoker. This method not only infuses the bird with flavor from the brew, but it also marinates it from the inside out, while keeping the chicken moist and tender.

“As a company passionate about unique craft beers, we were so excited when PERDUE® approached us to collaborate on the perfect beer can chicken beer because of all the endless flavor opportunities,” said Joe Correia, Co-Founder and Head Brewer of Torch & Crown Brewing Company. "We’re very happy with how the beer turned out as it perfectly balances both seasonal summer flavors and ingredients commonly found in chicken seasonings to help maximize the flavor of any PERDUE® grilled or smoked chicken."

For those ages 21+, the new PERDUE® Beer Can Chicken Beer will be available at in six packs beginning May 22 at 9:00 a.m. ET, while supplies last. The six packs will be priced at $14.99, plus shipping and handling.

To complete the perfect beer can chicken cooking experience, PERDUE® is selling fresh whole chickens, always raised with no antibiotics ever, in limited-time packaging that features the beer can chicken grilling occasion online or in retail stores nationwide this summer.
