If you’re a fan of spooky things, you have no doubt heard of Chucky. The demonic doll has been around since 1988 and is now set to be the poster child (ahem) for a new beer.
Having already featured in eight movies, Chucky got his own television show on the USA Network and Syfy last year. With the start of Spooky Season and the second season of Chucky about to premiere, a Seattle-based brewing company, Elysian Brewing, has created a pumpkin beer inspired by the creepy character.
Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is made from fall’s favorite vegetable and a wheat base. It also includes cranberry juice and has been described as “light in color with spine-chilling flavors of chamomile and cinnamon—the perfect combination of everything you love about the season.”
“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,” said Ellen Stone, executive vice president for entertainment consumer engagement and brand strategy at the networks’ parent company NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “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 is available now at select bars and retailers across the country.
