Elysian Brewing has partnered with USA Network and SYFY to celebrate the second season of “Chucky” on Oct 5 with a new beer featuring Chucky on the label that the brewery thinks will be “perfect for the Halloween season.”
CHUCKY: A Killer Wit Beer is a 5.3% ABV Witbier that is brewed with pumpkin, cinnamon, chamomile and cranberry to give the beer a “killer” appearance.
And Elysian explained that there’s an uncomfortable background story that led to this worrisome beer…
‘The brewery – a typically clean, orderly place – was thrown into chaos one frighteningly memorable brew day. Grain bags slashed open, spilled and spoiled after hitting the floor. Gourd guts and pumpkin seeds coated surfaces in a mushy mess. Someone (or something?) had made its way into a batch of cranberries, splattering the floor in blood-red footprints.”
An Elysian brewer set out in pursuit of this unknown menace only to be confronted by their worst nightmare: Chucky. The infamous killer doll wreaked havoc at the brewery only to narrowly escape the brewer’s grasp by jumping into the brew tank. Do we think the beer is now possessed by Chucky? Absolutely.”
“Just like Chucky is synonymous with Halloween, Elysian’s pumpkin beers have become synonymous with the season. Seeing Chucky’s iconic, freckled face on our cans feels like a match made in… ah… hell,” said Joe Bisacca, Elysian Brewing’s Co-Founder.
“This release is exactly what makes brewing pumpkin beers interesting. You can iterate with so many styles using the same common gourd ingredient.
“CHUCKY: A Killer Wit Beer is super drinkable and light, we think that it’ll be enjoyed by a wide variety of palates. From the blood-red cranberry to the cinnamon notes, this limited-edition wit encapsulates many of the fall flavors our drinkers love.”
CHUCKY: A Killer Wit Beer is a limited release and collaborative beer brewed in celebration of all things Halloween, horror and Season 2 of “Chucky,” a continuation of the iconic film franchise chronicling the murderous escapades of the notorious killer doll.
And although we’ve not yet tasted it, we expect it will be “killer”…
