Just in time for summer grilling season, PERDUE announced the launch of its one-of-kind Beer Can Chicken Beer, a honey double-citrus summer ale brewed with classic grilled chicken seasonings like rosemary, thyme and pink peppercorn.

Created in partnership with Torch & Crown Brewing Co., PERDUE’s custom Beer Can Chicken Beer is tangy, juicy, and has just a hint of sweetness — crafted for both summer grilling and sipping, the company says.

“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, vice president of marketing at PERDUE, in a statement.  “As the fresh chicken experts, we worked with our friends at Torch & Crown Brewing Co. 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.”

Joe Correia, co-founder and Head Brewer of Torch & Crown Brewing Co., added: “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. 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.”

Packaged in 12-ounce cans, PERDUE Beer Can Chicken Beer now is available for purchase in six-packs online at Beercanchicken.beer – while supplies last. The six packs will be available for $14.99 plus shipping and handling.
