Nothing screams Halloween quite like Chucky, so Elysian Brewing teamed up with USA Network and SYFY ahead of the second season of the hit TV series to release CHUCKY: A Killer Wit Beer, it says. Saturated with blood-red cranberry juice and entangled with pumpkin mangled into a puree, the beer is light in color with spine-chilling flavors of chamomile and cinnamon, it adds.
The 5.3 % ABV 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. In the TV series, Chucky crosses paths with archenemies, old allies and new prey as he seeks to inspire fear and mayhem wherever he goes.
“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, co-founder of Elysian Brewing, in a statement. “This release is exactly what makes brewing pumpkin beers interesting. You can iterate with so many styles using the same common gourd ingredient, like we do with the beers in Elysian’s Pumpkin Variety Pack.”
Ellen Stone, executive vice president of entertainment consumer engagement and brand strategy at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, added: “Chucky is one of Halloween’s most iconic, beloved characters and we have found the perfect partner in Elysian Brewing to capture his spirit this season. This custom pumpkin beer provides a fresh, unique way for fans and beer fanatics alike to quench their thirst with a taste of Chucky ahead of the season two premiere.”
CHUCKY: A Killer Wit Beer now is available at select bars and retailers across the country. “Chucky” season 2 premieres Oct. 5 at 9:00 pm ET on USA Network and SYFY.
