This beer has fried chicken as an ingredient

Beer is primarily made from four main ingredients: grains, hops, yeast and water. But one brand is adding something unique to its recipe − fried chicken.

The Veil Brewing Company, in Richmond, Virginia, teamed up with Evil Twin Brewing to create Fried Fried Chicken Chicken, an ale that’s made with a tiny bit of fried chicken. 

The company debuted the drink on its Facebook page, revealing that the brew “doesn’t even remotely taste like chicken.”

In fact, brewers only added it into one of two of the mashes (the hot water steeping process), which is less than .4 percent of the total weight of mash contents. 

What was the inspiration behind the concoction?

“The idea came to us after eating a significant amount of fried chicken at various establishments in our beautiful city of Richmond,” according to a post on the company’s Facebook page. “That’s it.”

Fried Fried Chicken Chicken has 8 percent alcohol content and is also hopped with Citra, Simcoe and Enigma.

The limited-edition beer won’t be around for long and is currently only available in Virginia.
